    Inspired by "Name That Star Trek Episode . . ." The principle of the game is: Someone gives a clue starting with, "in which two episodes does ______ happen?" and the first one to guess the two correct episodes comes up with the next set of episodes with a common element.

    I'll start things off with: in which two episodes does McCoy give Kirk a physical in sickbay?

    Correct! The intended alpha and unintended omega episodes of the series.

    Do you have an event that happens in two episodes in mind? If not I have several more I can post (I made sure there were plenty of examples before I posted this game) . . .

    Yes.

    In which 2 episodes does that well known TOS crew member Mr. Leslie (Eddie Paskey) actually speak on screen?

    Ooh, that's a good one! Both times are memorable, but one is much easier to place that the other. As I recall the actor was terrified of speaking in front of the camera and it's apparent in the harder to place example, I recall his hands were shaking as he pushed buttons. I think Odona Kirk just nailed it!

    Got it!
    Actually he spoke 3 times. At the end of Conscience of the King he says “Leaving orbit, sir.” to Kirk.

    You’re at the helm, Odona Kirk!

    Mr. Brent (Frank Vinci) also spoke his one line in TOS at the end of The Naked Time.

    Thank you, Spock's Barber.

    In which two episodes does Uhura wear a gold (rather than red) uniform?

    Thanks!!

    Here is a good trivia question....In which 2 episodes did Dr. McCoy get in the last word before "Journey to Babel" when he said "Well whaddya know, I finally got the last word" which was actually the 3rd time in the series he did that.

    Aye, carumba! I had to ‘play’ some episodes in my brain on this one.

    I’m thinking Court Martial and Conscience of the King.

    Interesting that both Shatner and Nimoy's stand-ins were given lines in the same episode. Leslie for the first time, and Brent for the only time. I wonder if this was coincidental or intentional on the part of the episode writer?

    Spock's Barber, you are correct! Did u guess or look at script texts?? "Conscience Of The King" he says " That's the answer" and "Court Martial" he says "Indeed she is" to end both those episodes" I had that trivia question for a while now and this was the perfect game to post it. "Spock's Barber", you have the last word and the next game!!

    I actually used my skull noodles to think up the answers. I remembered how McCoy deadpanned his response at the end of CM. Then I continued with other S1 episodes....

    Let’s see. I need a few minutes to come up with two new mystery episodes.

    Name the 2 episodes where Spock fights and defeats an alien WITHOUT using his famous Vulcan neck pinch....

    Oh, well. I’m pretty sure there are 3 of these, but 2 out of 3 wins the cigar today.

    I'll take a jab at this one: In "Return of the Archons" Spock punches out one of the Lawgivers, prompting Kirk to say, "Isn't that somewhat old-fashioned?" and in "Bread and Circuses" Spock knocks out his gladiator opponent, and then nerve-pinches McCoy's opponent.

    Sounds good to me. Also the 3rd season episode Savage Curtain where Spocks wrestles with Zora and Ghengis Khan.

    You’re now in command, albion432.

    I thought of "Savage Curtain" too, but wasn't sure if it was a clear defeat in that case, so I went with B&C instead.

    Alright, here's some relatively low-hanging fruit for this caliber of trivia wizzes: in which two episodes does Kirk play pool?
