It's not a particularly great or thought-provoking plot, but for some reason it has always 'resonated' with me, particularly the dramatic ending, which I found mildly disconcerting.

I believe this was either the first episode after the pilot episode----or the pilot episode itself.

Probably the one where there was a civilization with people who had black and white faces. If the black was in one side, the person was a member of the "oppressor" group; if the black was on the other side to the first person, that person was a member of the "oppressed" group. This is from the "original series."

I liked the episode where Kirk and Spock went back in time and Spock had to “construct a mnemonic memory circuit using stone knifes and bear skins”.
