    Khan puts Kirk in the decompression chamber and threatens to kill him if the bridge crew doesn't help him?

    You've lost the channel. Not correct.

    Clue 1: Spock fails to understand the lesson of the game.
    Clue 2: Final outcome does not involve a Queen.
    Clue 3: Most of this scene happens on the move, but moving is relative to the ship.
    Clue 4: Running is good exercise.
    Clue 5: Smallest "room" on the ship.

    Clue 6: Mock concern over another crewman's stress level.
    Clue 7: The scene features three though no blue or red shirts, but eventually, all three colors will be represented.

    New Clue:
    Clue 8: Non-usual ceiling lighting effect in this area during this scene.

    The cube scene during which Spock says to Bailey he should consider having his adrenaline removed in The Corbomite Manuever?

    "Hold it, Jim" ~ The scene where Mitchell hops into the shutting turbolift doors with Spock and Kirk near the beginning of WNMHGB.

    I think you got it! :)

    Funny, I deliberately avoided any chess references, as I thought it was too obvious ;)

    Same! I followed the chess references in the beginning and then thought I was being too literally. I thought had this one after clue 8 but couldn't post another answer until someone else did so thank you for putting up a try today. :beer: Let's see what Henoch says about my try. Your Object game has me stumped. I'm still trying to work it out though. You both give really great clues!

    You deduced the correct scene, @RubySlipppers. You have the game.

    My next clue was to point out that it was done in one, continuous take. The "corridor" outside the turbolift doors was constructed of "wild walls" that were set up on the bridge and removed during the turbolift ride to reveal the bridge when the doors opened. One of my favorite scenes:
    [​IMG]
    Clue 1: Spock fails to understand the lesson of the game.
    Spock's comments indicate that he refuses to believe that logical play can be beaten by Kirk's illogical tactics.
    Clue 2: Final outcome does not involve a Queen.
    It involved the Rook. The "Queen" chess passcode was used in the later episode, Whom Gods Destroy.
    Clue 3: Most of this scene happens on the move, but moving is relative to the ship.
    First, Mitchell jumps on the turbolift which then moves within the ship to the bridge.
    Clue 4: Running is good exercise.
    Mitchell needed to run to catch the turbolift after which Kirk jokes with him about "getting into shape".
    Clue 5: Smallest "room" on the ship.
    The turbolift has walls and a door which technically makes it a room. It's only about 7 feet in diameter.
    Clue 6: Mock concern over another crewman's stress level.
    Mitchell's comment about Kelso sounding nervous is meant as light humor.
    Clue 7: The scene features three though no blue or red shirts, but eventually, all three colors will be represented.
    Of the three actors, Kirk wears command gold, Spock is also wearing command gold but for the rest of the series he wears blue, and Mitchell wears the "salmon" color which evolves into the red shirt for the rest of the series.
    Clue 8: Non-usual ceiling lighting effect in this area during this scene.
    I think this is the only episode (or one of very few) with the spotted grate lighting from the ceiling of the turbolift.
    Clue 9: Close friends, only, for one of the occupants.
    Mitchell is Kirk's closest friend at this point, and Spock will become Kirk's closest friend during the series.

    Kirk talking Landru into self-destruction?
    Clue 1: Do you need help finding something to do, Mister?

    A Lawgiver runs into the room asking Landru for guidance during Kirk's verbal beatdown of Landru.
    Clue 2: I got my hand full at the moment!
    Kirk has a phaser one in his hand.
    Clue 3: Time to deal with a canned leader?
    Kirk turns to take Landru out after the interruption of the Lawgiver. The canned leader is the computer Landru.
    Clue 4: Try it in a smaller season number
    Season One episode.
    Clue 5: For shore enjoying me some chemistry and botany today.
    Not biting on the word "shore" implying Shore Leave. The scene is on a planet, so, "ashore" technically. The shore party was ashore during their Festival in which most people get it on with wine, women and drugs, etc.

    Logical but incorrect. You will be absorbed.

    Clue 6: Our hero uses hand combat - no weapon involved.
