Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 25 "Bread and Circuses"

Stardate 4040.7: The S.S. Beagle, missing for six years, is found as debris near Planet IV of System 982. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy beam down to the planet to investigate and find a ragged group of fugitive slaves trying to stay hidden from the police. These "sun worshippers" distrust the landing party but soon discover that they are not a threat. Kirk informs them that he is looking for another group of strangers led by a man named Merik. Merikus is the First Citizen of the Empire, but Kirk is not sure if it is the same man. Pursuaded to help them find Merik and his crew, the leader of the fugitives sends Flavius, an ex-gladiator, to be their guide. The landing party, however, is soon captured and led into the city where they discover a civilization much like 20th century Earth, but culturally similar to ancient Rome. The landing party find Merik, now First Citizen Merikus, who six years ago abandoned his ship and beamed his crew down to the planet. Those who could adapt survived, and those who couldn't died in the arena games. Kirk is ordered by Proconsul Claudius Marcus to have his crew beamed down. When Kirk refuses, Claudius tries to have Spock and McCoy killed in the games, but his plan fails. The next morning, Kirk is scheduled for execution, but Scotty manages to disrupt the planet's power systems which gives Kirk the opportunity to free Spock and McCoy. Now knowing that he made the wrong decision, Merik uses a communicator to signal the Enterprise and have the landing party beamed to the ship. For his treachery, Merik is killed by Claudius Marcus. On the Enterprise, Uhura clears up the confusion surrounding the religion of the runaway slaves. After listening to radio broadcasts from the planet, she has learned that the ex-slaves are actually Christians worshipping the "Son" of God and not the "sun" in the sky
