    Can anyone say with certainty what episode this is from? I can think of three possibilities:

    But you're not going to name them? Is this a quiz?

    It looks familiar, but I don't have the complete series anymore so can't attempt to find it. The lit but empty viewer makes me almost think it's an effects shot without the corresponding matte.

    And something about that chair behind the viewer looks odd, with that large white space where the backrest is.

    I don't see anything odd about the chairs myself. I'm not naming my three candidate eps because it might be more fun that way. But I am hoping somebody knows for sure.

    I mentioned the chair, because I thought all the chairs had those black false tops, I don't remember seeing one with a lighter inset. Though maybe it's just a reflection from the stage lights.

    I'd say Conscience of the King or Obsession.

    Yeah, it's "Obsession." I believe this particular image is from a frame that was sold by Lincoln Enterprises back in the day... but you can see a screencap from the episode at Trekcore.

    Thanks, guys. My other possibilities were "The Enemy Within" and "The Conscience of the King." But I mostly thought it was "Obsession" due to Shatner looking more second-seasonish.

    That's my favorite Shatner performance too. I thought the ham was reined in really well.

    I thought about cropping it out, but figured I'd see what happened.

    I knew it was one of 3 episodes.

    My first thought was "Return To Tomorrow" when Kirk/Sargon was alone in the briefing room.

    Love the "mood lighting" spotlights up in the rafters.

    Am I the winner?

    And does the original poster want to start this as a game?
    If so what are the rules?

    Post a photo that's not too obvious, and ask us what episode it's from. Just don't use stock footage that was in two dozen episodes. :)

    I don't think it should be that difficult, but we will see.

    In this shot we can clearly see that Jimmy Doohan only had five fingers on his left hand.
