In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode Bread and Circuses, which aired on March 15, 1968, and occurred on Star Date 4040.7.

On a routine patrol, the Enterprise happens upon space debris from the S.S. Beagle. This survey ship disappeared 6 years ago, commanded by Captain R.M. Merrik, an academy associate of Kirk. When Spock projects the path of the wreckage back in time, he discovers a civilization of modern-day Romans on Planet 4 of the 892 System. The extreme similarity of the 892 System's civilization to the Roman Earth is apparently a coincidence, demonstrating, according to Kirk, the validity of Hodgekin's Law of Parallel Planet Development.

Scott prepares to disrupt power to the entire planet from the Enterprise just as Kirk is about to be executed on live Roman TV. Scotty beams up the away team just before their cell is crisscrossed with machine gun fire. Back aboard the Enterprise, Uhura discovers that the escaped slaves were not sun worshippers but worshippers of a different "son": the Son of God.

Compliance Takeaways:

1. Being a CCO or compliance professional requires many soft skills.

2. Do you translate your compliance documents into the local language?

3. Does your compliance program enhance and enrich cultural diversity in your organization or acerbate the differences?
