    Are you prepared to hear that it is not All Our Yesterdays?
    -----------------
    Clue 3: Given what is learned, it's a good bet that objects of that type cannot be obtained locally.

    Ah yes, I'd forgotten about Nona! I guess I was thinking of our regular heroes, so should have been clearer.

    Yes, City did come to mind afterwards. However, nothing suggests anyone has to 'wait in transit', whereas in Dove its explicit that Kirk orders a wide beam on everyone with the intent of holding the Klingons. In City, they may well have simply had a squeeze on the transporter platform, without necessarily standing one per circular floor tile.

    "The Trouble With Tribbles"

    -Tribbles/Klingons miss match (especially when Scotty ..."transported the whole kit and caboodle into their engine room, where they'll be no tribble at all!) Ba-dum ching!
    -Don't stop over at a Deep Space Station, never know what you'll find or get?
    -Tribbles found in far reaches of the galaxy.

    ^^ No tribbles were harmed in the denial of your answer.

    @Lord Other Wolf in the Fold is correct.

    1. Kirk set Scotty up with the dancer. Oops.
    KIRK: Do you like her, Scotty?
    SCOTT: Aye. Why shouldn't I?
    KIRK: Good. I've invited her to join us at the table. I thought you might like to meet her.
    SCOTT: Now that's what I call a real Captain. Always thinking of his men.
    2. Had two things in mind here. First was Scotty's loutish banging on the table when lights are used for applause. Second, wondering off alone with a local in a bonny fog. Is a good way to get mugged, killed or accused of murder.

    3. The murder weapon was from Rigel IV so it is implied that knives are hard to get on Argelius otherwise one would think Hengist would have ditched it since it would be traced back to him.

    The Squire of Gothos?
    1. Second time god-like parents show up to take an unruly kid home, but this time from the planet surface and not from the ship. (Charlie X was the first and he was yanked off the bridge of the Enterprise.)

    I like your thinking here, but no Squires were involved in the making of this episode.

    Journey to Babel?

    1) 2nd visit to Vulcan after Amok Time, but no one beams down this time.

    2) Twice, Spock's family are introduced. Amok Time his 'fiancée' of sorts, and here his parents.

    3) The little alien men in the Recreation Room at the official reception of the delegates.

    ***DING*** ***DING*** ***DING***
    (ANNOUNCER VOICE) And we have a winner!

    Actually the break down is close on the clues-

    Clue 1: This happens for the second time in the history of the series, except no one is leaving the Enterprise. - Absolutely spot on.


    Clue 2: Also this happens for the second time in the series, with both instances surprising for members of the crew. -
    Very close to what I was thinking, but actually it was all about Mark Lenard. He first appeared in Balance of Terror, much to the entire crew's surprise when he shows up on the view screen, pointy ears and all (I can only imagine what Spock was thinking.. "Dammit, Dad!!!!" ;)), and the second time as Spock's father, again surprising Kirk & co. that his father showed up unexpectedly.


    Clue 3: Two folks in this episode agree that fezzes are cool. - Got it in one, or three, or something like that.. LOL


    @Methuselah Flint, the conn is yours good sir..

    Thanks friend! Taken a few days, but here goes...

    Clue # 1
    This episode oddly uses different terminology for a function of the ship, than any other episode.

    Wow! A whole list there! But no, ;) none of these is correct.

    Clue # 2
    He calls himself a fool. But who, or what, is actually the fool in this episode?
