I'm but a Red shirt in Game of Life.
"The N-----r's a cube, Captain!" This is a quote from an old Richard Pryor bit where a red-shirted African-American is turned into a polyhedron-shaped piece of styrofoam, encapsulating his essence.
And of course, Kirk gets his rocks off with an alien yet again.
I remember seeing By Any Other Name as a kid and then when they were repeated in the 70's, I always missed this episode. I didn't see it again until University and again now. It is a truly rare experience for me to witness a ST (Original Series) for only the 3rd time.
