    "THAT WHICH SURVIVES"?

    Kirk, McCoy, and Sulu are on the planet, which is the same as "SHORE LEAVE" until Spock beams down later.

    The Enterprise heads directly back to pick them up, but only because they got thrown so far away.

    Nice, but:

    Clue # 6
    The grouping isn't character specific so much as gender specific.

    "BY ANY OTHER NAME"?

    4 men, 1 woman away team. "THE DEADLY YEARS" did this, too. The ship makes course changes.

    Course change to the far side of the planet to attempt a phaser attack against the planetary shields. This is in response to the explosive death of Marta and the weird comms with the landing party. The landing party is only Kirk and Spock same as it was on Organia.

    Wow the same game is still running? Here are the clues as I spend some time pondering:

    Clue # 1 I think this is the only time the Enterprise follows such a route.


    Clue # 2 Unlike the back and forward in 'Amok Time' and 'Let That Be Your Last Battlefield', this course change moves the story along.

    Clue # 3 The course change is due to a mystery of sorts

    Clue # 4 A similar route is taken in one or two episodes, but that is to pick up landing party personnel. This is a direct course change, which wouldn't/shouldn't have happened, if it weren't for a strange occurrence

    Clue # 5 This is one of only two occurences, which feature this particular landing party 'grouping'.

    Clue # 6 The grouping isn't character specific so much as gender specific

    Clue # 7 This episode also features the only time such a story-telling device is used in TOS

    Clue # 8 One out, one in.

    Clue # 9 A 'romantic' interlude is cut short

    Clue # 10 But then again, appearances aren't everything

    Clue # 11 No redshirts die on this occasion

    Clue # 12 But a guest star does

    That's nothing. The current DS9 one has 22 clues. I'm running out of non-obvious clues.

    "The Gamesters of Triskelion" seems to fit the clues.

    1. Spock follows the unlikely route to a far away beam down point.
    2 & 3. Where is the landing party? Let's go find them.
    4. The missing personnel? Where are they?
    5 & 6. Not a typical landing party.
    7. There is no other episode with 3 disembodied brains of differing colors.
    8. Dead combatant out, living combatant in.
    9 & 10. The Providers interrupt Kirk's romantic run in the country side.
    11 & 12. One of the Thralls dies.

    Dagger of the Mind

    1. The only time the E makes a routine stop at a planet without someone beaming down.
    2 & 3. The return is to investigate von Gelder's "mystery."
    4. If van Gelder hadn't escaped the E would have continued on its merry way.
    5 & 6. Kirk beams down with just Helen Noel. In "Shore Leave" when Kirk beams down, it is with Yeoman Barrows only.
    7. Smuggling one self onto the E.
    8. One cargo beam in, one cargo beam out.
    9 & 10. Spock interrupts the kissing.
    11 & 12. Dr. Adams dies.

    Well done, you got it!

    I love your answers. Some aren't the same as mine, so I'll give a full explanation later.

    The bridge is yours!

    1. The claim is that it is safe but there isn't proof of that.

    Return To Tomorrow?

    The landing party beaming further than is possible, down to the planet surface.
