Moral :
History : We must learn the lessons of history or we are doomed to repeat them
YATI : Kirk and co. find it incredible that a group of Nazis exist on an alien planet. Yet they found it perfectly reasonable that a Roman society could develop in "Bread and Circuses", only nine episodes ago. They claim it is a perfect example of "Hodgkin's law of parallel planetary development". So why are the Nazis any different?
Great Moment : The scene where the Ekosian declared Spock to be physically and mentally inferior. It's always good to see a Nazi make a fool of himself.
Body Count : Gill and one of the Nazis.
Factoid : This is one of several examples of the "Exactly like the Earth" episodes TOS had and the only one with a vaguely sensible explanation, since the similarities were deliberately created.
Quote : "What he's saying, Spock, is that a man who holds that much power, even with the best intentions, just can't resist the urge to play god." - McCoy to Spock

Plotline

The Enterprise crew find a planet where history is repeating itself as the Nazis run riot again.
