    Ah, great observations in #1, #3, #4. But, alas

    You caught me between edit corrections, but alas, it's not the right episode anyway.

    Oh, I'm not sure about that either, but that would be a good catch (and would fit the clue to a tee).

    I hope I can give a new guess, The Menagerie Part 2. (previous guess of the Cage was a DNQ since it was not the TOS episode.)
    1. Spock's greatest line.
    2. The nozzles or power settings on the old style lasers.
    3. The Talosian becomes a pig creature.
    4. The lasers are discarded as trash.

    Errand Of Mercy?

    There aren't women among the governing body of the Organians, which isn't very enlightened for such advanced people.
    They flip from material beings to energy beings.
    Humans and Klingons look like querulous pigs as a result.
    And like trash too. The Organians win on all levels.

    Off topic, but what would be the point of having gender among noncorporeal beings? It seems most likely there wouldn't even BE a gender.

    The Trouble With Tribbles?
    1. Uhura is the villain who brings the tribble on board the ship.
    2. McCoy says the tribbles are "bisexual".
    3. The tribbles eat like pigs.
    4. "The Enterprise should be hauled away as trash."

    Energy beings never get fat either, because they only eat light snacks...:D

    Has someone proposed Spock's Brain yet?

    If not then it's my guess.

    No.

    Did I break the contest again? ;)

    I'm gonna let this sit a while. I won't add a 6th clue until 24 hours after the 5th. It really should be gettable. :lol:

    Finally! Yes.

    Can we at least see how you read some of the clues, since that's been asked for by at least one of the other players?

    That's not part of the deal. When people guess my episodes, I am the one explaining the clues. And that's what you should do now.

    I just made a mental scan of all the episodes and selected the ones that had elements pertaining to your clues, sometimes that doesn't even work as some clues are more cryptic than the Mahabharata translated in medieval Russian, red by a Chinese dyslexic.

    Hey, a random guess works too. I was just pointing out that there *has* been a request for clue interpretation.


    Clues for "Elaan of Troyius":
    http://www.chakoteya.net/StarTrek/57.htm

    1. The women!
    MCCOY: "Now the women, they're supposed to be something very special. They're supposed to have a kind of subtle, mystical power that drives men wild."
    KIRK: "Mister Spock, the women on your planet are logical. That's the only planet in this galaxy that can make that claim."
    Also, Kirk has two women (or "women"), Elaan and Enterprise, who fight for control of his soul.

    2. What do you know? They flip, too.
    Klingon communicators.

    3. Oink.
    Troyian pig/green pig

    4. Trash.
    ELAAN: "Kryton! Remove him! And take that garbage with you[!]"
    SCOTT: "Manoeuvre? Aye. We can wallow like a garbage scow against a warp-driven starship."

    5. School's out!
    KIRK: "Yes, the problem of your indoctrination to Troyian customs and manners."
    ELAAN: "I have eliminated that problem."
    KIRK: "You have eliminated the teacher. The problem still remains."
    ELAAN: "Oh. And how do we solve the problem?"
    KIRK: "By giving you a new teacher."
