In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode The Omega Glory, which aired on March 1, 1968, and occurred on Star Date unknown.
The Enterprise finds the U.S.S. Exeter in orbit with no one aboard. The boarding party then plays the medical log and is warned that they are dead men who must not return to their ship and told that their only chance for survival is to beam down to the planet's surface and find Captain Ron Tracy. Tracy is supporting the Coms against the Yangs violating the Prime Directive.
The victorious Yangs take the landing party prisoner. Kirk realizes that "Yangs" and "Coms" are distorted forms of "Yanks" and "Communists. A trial headed by the Yang leader Cloud William follows. Kirk recognizes the invocation of the trial as a distorted form of the Pledge of Allegiance and surprises the Yangs by completing it unassisted. Kirk proves his innocence by completing the "holy words," realizing they are the preamble to the U.S. Constitution and reveals the true meaning of the words to Chief William. Kirk and his landing crew return to the Enterprise, bringing Tracy along as a prisoner.
