Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 16 "The Gamesters of Treskilion"

Stardate 3211.7: Just before an inspection of automated installations on uninhabited Gamma II, Kirk, Chekov, and Uhura are beamed off of the bridge of the Enterprise. They find themselves on a strange planet in an entirely different solar system where they are immediately confronted by various aliens and forced to surrender. Confused and annoyed by their situation, Kirk demands an explanation but is informed only that they are on the planet Triskelion and that they are to spend the rest of their lives as gladiator thralls. Meanwhile, Spock discovers a particle trail that leads away from Gamma II and concludes that the landing party must be at the end of this trail. McCoy and Scotty object, but Spock is convinced and directs the Enterprise to follow the trail. On Triskelion, the landing party attempt an escape, but Galt, the Master Thrall, quickly subdues them by inflicting tremendous pain from the collars around their necks. Kirk then tries a diplomatic strategy and learns from his training instructor, a humanoid female named Shahna, that the Providers are responsible for their capture and that gambling on thrall combat is their primary occupation. Eventually, the Enterprise arrives at Triskelion, but the Providers plan to use its crew as thralls. Kirk manages to gain permission to see the Providers and then challenges them to the ultimate wager. Kirk will fight three thralls, and if he wins the thralls go free and will be educated by the Providers. However, if he loses the Enterprise crew will become thralls and give the Providers untold years of amusement. Shahna and the thralls fight fiercely, but Kirk wins the duel. In defeat, the Providers keep to their word and free the Enterprise and the thralls. They also agree to train the thralls and help them develop into a self-governing civilization
