Observers

The two individuals, looking out of an upper story window at the courtyard below, were visible when Kirk and Spock approached the Ekosian Chancellery in 2268. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

The two individuals appear to be employees of Paramount Pictures who were watching the filming of the episode in the courtyard below.
The scene in which they appeared was filmed on 29 November 1967.


Daras' father Edit

Daras' father was seemingly betrayed by his daughter to the Nazi Party.

In reality, he was a former friend and follower of the Führer, John Gill. After Deputy Führer Melakon began drugging Gill, Daras' father saw the changes in the Party and the direction Melakon’s new ideals were leading, most notably against their neighbors, the Zeons. He turned against the Party and denounced Daras, making it appear as if she betrayed him, which gave her a weapon to continue the fight against Melakon's regime with.

For his part, Daras' father was imprisoned and Melakon sentenced him to death for his actions. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

General's wives Edit

These two General's wives attended the presentation for the "Final Solution".

The first wife entered the Ekosian Chancellery with her escort, the Reichsführer-SS, just as the car carrying the Führer's Special Documentary Corps (Kirk, Spock and Isak) pulled up. Later, she shared a drink with Isak, who was disguised as an Ekosian Gestapo, before joining the crowd during Melakon's speech.

The second wife was also enjoying a drink during the reception party. She was later heiling with the crowd during Melakon's speech. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

The first two men, the second of which wore a green hat, were sharing a drink during the reception, and were passed by Eneg as the chairman exited the room and passed Daras and her documentary corps. Together, they later reported that an unauthorized transmission was pin-pointed within the Chancellery and they were ordered by Melakon to search the building for the source. Isak overhead the conversation, while sharing a drink with one of the general's wives, and he told Daras, who in turn told Kirk, referring to the officials as "two security men." They were later present at the speech itself.

The third man, who wore a black hat, was sharing a drink with one of the General's wives during the same reception and was present at the speech, heiling along with the other spectators in the group.

The fourth man, who wore the red and gold hat of a stabschef, was also present at the reception and the speech. He was about to leave, after so-ordered by Melakon, when Gill began his unscripted speech denouncing Melakon's actions, but remained. After Gill ordered the recall of the Ekosian fleet, he left the room with several of the other officials to perform his duties. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

These extras were identified in the shooting schedule as "Storm Troopers" in a subsection under "Hi-Ranking Officials", and their scenes were filmed at Paramount Stage 10 on 5 December 1967.

The first trooper referred to Isak as a "Zeon pig" and after kicking him, ordered "On your feet, pig." Once Isak was up, the trooper ordered him to continue to raise and keep his hands up, so as he didn't "touch anything Ekosian," adding, "You swine have defiled us for the last time," before arresting him and having him taken to the Chancellery Detention Center.

The second trooper later descended a staircase on patrol with a machine gun, just before Spock (dressed in a Nazi uniform) escorted Kirk around a nearby corner and passed the same staircase. He was later walking outside the Ekosian Chancellery, as Kirk (also now dressed in a Nazi uniform) and Spock approached.

SS lieutenant Edit

Ekosian SS lieutenant 1, headshot

An SS lieutenant

This SS lieutenant attempted to apprehend Captain Kirk and Spock shortly after their beam down to Ekos. Upon seeing Spock's alien features, he declared, "What kind of monsters are the Zeons sending against us?" In a bit of confusion, Kirk pushed Spock away, and agreed with the Lieutenant, stating of Spock, "You're right, he's not one of us!" Confused on the part about "us", Kirk stepped behind the lieutenant and disabled him with a judo chop to the neck. Spock then stole his uniform. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

This officer, played by Ralph Maurer, was credited as "S.S. Lieutenant" in the end credits.
According to the shooting schedule, this officer was identified as a "SS Lt (Bit) (Spock Dbl Wardrobe)"; his scene was shot on 29 November 1967.
While identified as a "lieutenant", he wore the rank insignia of an untersturmführer (or second lieutenant) on his collar, but after Spock stole the uniform, the insignia appeared in the next scene as that of a first lieutenant.


SS major Edit

Ekosian SS major

An SS major

This major was a mid-ranking security officer who was a member of the SS on the planet Ekos in 2268. The Major was assigned duties at Chancellery and was responsible for arresting James T. Kirk and Spock when they attempted to gain entry there during his effort to find John Gill. The Major first noticed the pair as they approached the Chancellery and Spock, dressed as a lieutenant, failed to salute the Major. The Major requested to see Spock's orders, before Kirk intervened explaining the Spock was still dazed from being attacked by a Zeon. The Major suggested that Spock see a doctor, because of his color, he didn't look well, before finally requesting that Spock to remove his helmet, revealing Spock's Vulcan ears.

The major later interrogated Spock and Kirk in the Chancellery Detention Center, having them whipped and then prepared to have them executed. He was prevented from carrying out the execution by Eneg, who ordered Spock and Kirk held for one hour awaiting further questioning. During that hour, Kirk and Spock escaped. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

The officer, played by Gilbert Green, was billed in the credits and shooting schedule as the "SS Major," as Spock and Eneg both referred to him; his scene was filmed on 29 November 1967 and 1 December 1967.
Assuming that the Ekosian military uniforms and insignia were taken directly from Earth's SS uniforms and insignia, then the rank of major given here would have been inconsistent with his uniform insignia: a single oak leaf which would have signified a World War II-era German colonel (referred to as Oberst for an army officer or Standartenführer for an SS officer). This officer seems to be wearing his insignia incorrectly; an SS Standartenführer or colonel would have both collar patches a single oak leaf, but he is wearing his right one with standard SS bolts for ranks below a colonel, and the left one a colonel's oak leaf.


SS-Officer officials Edit

These SS Officers were top Party officials who were decidedly among the top, most trusted, officials on Ekos.

The first officer walked past the outside of the service entrance of the Ekosian Chancellery as Kirk and Spock exited with Isak on a stretcher. He was later present for the reception leading up to and including Melakon and John Gill's presentation of the "Final Solution." (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

The second officer was a high-ranking member of the Party itself, and was present when Melakon and John Gill gave the presentation of the "Final Solution." He was later speaking with two SA officials following the speech, when Spock was brought into the room, after being exposed as a Zeon spy. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

The third officer was a high-ranking member of the Wehrmacht, and one of the top most trusted officials present during Melakon and John Gill's presentation of the "Final Solution." (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

These extras were all identified in the shooting schedule simply as one of several "Hi-Ranking Officials" under the subsection of "SS Officers". Individually they all wore the rank insignia equivalents of high-level German Nazi officers, including a Reichsführer-SS, a Reichsleiter, and a Generalmajor.
According to the shooting schedule, all three shot their scenes on 5 December 1967. Holloway's character was not noted in the shooting schedule for his first scene appearance walking on the street; that scene was shot on 29 November 1967, the remaining interior scenes, for Holloway and the remaining extras, were filmed on 5 December 1967.

SS troopers 1 and 2 Edit

These two SS troopers, a corporal and a mann, served as guards at the Ekosian Chancellery's main entrance.

When Kirk and Spock attempted to enter the Chancellery in 2268, these guards took interest in the majors suspicion of Spock. The first guard pointed his machine gun at Kirk, and the second at Spock, after the latter removed his helmet and revealed his Vulcan ears.

Later the same night, they stood guard at the same position as the various party officials arrived for John Gill's speech. Upon the commotion caused during the arrival of the Führer's Special Documentary Corps, the second requested to know "What is your business here?", before recognizing and telling the first guard the recognized party secretary Daras as she emerged from the second car.

As Daras ascended the stairs, she told the first trooper to "smile, Corporal" as the cameras whisked by. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

These SS trooper guard's day and night scenes were both filmed on 29 November 1967.

The first trooper was just ahead of Kirk and Spock as they approached the entrance, while the second trooper walked past behind Kirk and Spock as Spock presented the major his orders. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

Both troopers were most likely portrayed by individuals seen elsewhere on this page, however, due to their distance from the camera and the concealment from their uniform, it is unclear which ones exactly.
Neither trooper was indicated in the shooting schedule, which otherwise indicated that their scene was filmed 29 November 1967.

Moments later, when Gill began his unscripted speech, Melakon ordered the first trooper to "[g]o to the booth" and "[s]ee to the Fuhrer at once" because "[h]e's ill," before adding that he also wanted him to "[t]urn off that camera." When he reached the booth, he discovered that it was locked, thereafter, he returned to Melakon to inform him of the situation.

During the distraction, Spock was able to step behind the first guard and see Gill through the door's window.

Later, when the "Documentary Corps" returned, following Gill's announcement and during Melakon's speech, the first guard was incapacitated by Isak, who put him in a choke hold, while the second was incapacitated by Spock's Vulcan nerve pinch, before they entered the broadcast room.
