    The principle of the game is: Someone gives a few (cryptic) clues about an episode of STAR TREK and the first one to guess which it is, does the same for another episode, etc...

    If you are sure that you've identified the episode you can continue right away but if in doubt then please wait for confirmation before doing anything.

    I shall begin.

    Mine is a toughie.....

    Spock, Kirk and a guest star all say the same, exact line at different times in a 3rd season episode :

    "For what purpose?"

    It seems like something they say often. So it is hard indeed.

    Spock's Brain? I can imagine but not sure and probably not as I can't think of a guest actor in that one apart from Kara...?

    You got it. I've watched this episode at least a 1,000 times, but it was only recently that I noticed that Kirk, Spock and Vana all say that same line.

    I always loved Vana's inflection. FOR what PUR-pose????

    So what's the next clue?

    Ok, Here's my first clue:

    Sometimes you have to cement relations between species.

    Ok. This one is semi-toughie.

    You can recognize these 2 familiar TOS minor guest actors in an episode where they each play 2 different characters of the same alien race. There is no heavy alien makeup to disguise them, only different costumes. *Extra clue* I'm assuming the director reused them because of extreme budget restrictions. (Oh, you must mean 3rd season...)

    They both play two alien characters each for a total of 4 characters?

    Yup. Each of the 2 minor actors plays 2 different characters. I didn't believe my eyes at first but in this episode the director used them both twice, with some costume changes. I will post some screencaps after someone figures it out.

    My guess is Pete Kellett and Fred Carson in Spock's Brain.

    Yup. They are 2 of the long haired creatures on the planet surface. Then they are the 2 thugs who guard Kara's underground babe palace.

    Well spotted! Not easy to recognize Kellett with hair!

    This first season episode features a guest star who also guest starred in the first season of TNG.
