"The Enemy Within."

This one is far too easy, but also far too funny...

"Wolf in the Fold."

Here's one that might be a little tougher...

That one took some research... but the yellow door in the Auxiliary Control set finally gave it away.

"Charlie X"

To me, the big clue is the "black and white" phaser (featuring a sparsely detailed black body and a white handle). These appeared only in the first 8 episodes. After that, they were given their first facelift to be more photogenic -- blue/gray bodies with black or gray handles, along with additional silver detailing (fins, side rails, etc.).

"Bread and Circuses."

Which brings us to the (first-season) episode featuring the best close-up of the revamped "hero" phaser...

Thank you!

Here's a hint: The phaser is being pushed into Kirk's back.

Tough one, but I'll go with "Conscious of the King". (Other contenders were "Court Martial" or "The Omega Glory").

As I'm not absolutely sure, I'll wait for a yay or nay before posting another.

Excellent choices! It's "Court Martial" (42:13 into the episode).

From the picture it looks that the guy is hiding the gun on his back. I thought Marc has corp the photo and removed elbow to create confusion.

The above imagination come to my mind because the shirt and sleeve color is same.

PS:- I don't know anything more than a name about Star Trek. Sorry If I have bother you.

The fact that the shirts are the same color is the key to the riddle. There were only a few episodes (those I listed) where Kirk had "problems" with other gold-shirted characters.



Mine are probably way too easy, but I don't have a good library of screen caps to draw from.

Unless we get more people joining in, I wouldn't say they're too easy. I'm just using Google image search.

I'll be impressed if you can get this one. I have no idea myself, so don't ask me:

There were very few unique shots of the Enterprise, with the same footage reused quite a bit, so I'm guessing this frame appeared in several episodes. We can tell from the nacelles' effects and the bridge dome that this was not from either of the two pilots. But beyond that...

"WE" can tell this?

I think you over-estimate my abilities.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
