Re: TOS S2: The Gamesters of Triskelion

@Roxxin

The "slavery" scenes were put in to titillate the audience. I never thought this episode was intended as, or came off as, a probing anti-slavery tract.

The characters' becoming slaves allowed for the cheap Uhura almost-rape scene; for Shatner to cram his tongue down Angelique Pettyjohn's throat, and for Chekov to be called 'Chee-koo."

Can you quote a single memorable line of dialogue (uttered on Triskelion) in this episode?

Sure, other episodes had cliches, many the same ones, but their presentation and usage were used in the service of something non-meretricious
