I was just on a site that claimed there was an episode of Star Trek (I don't know which one) that had a swimsuit competition. It was originally supposed to have been lost, but was found and showed once, after which it was removed from syndication. Any truth to this?

Note: I also could have misunderstood...

Complete misunderstanding. --Jörg 11:17, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like someone's wishful thinking. It's completely untrue.--31dot 11:35, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Ah, if only "Let He Who Is Without Sin..." had shared the same fate :-D – Taduolus 11:47, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
The only thing that comes close is the casting that was done for TNG: "Justice" where blondes in swimsuits were cast for the various Edo female roles. There's a clip of that casting session on the TNG Season 1 DVD special features. --Jörg 12:02, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

I believe that episode was banned or postponed from being shown in The UK> but don't waste your time, it's probably the worst Trek episode ever made. -The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 15:28, 29 March 2008.
"The High Ground" actually was banned in the UK due to a throw-away line about Irish Unification. For a while it was barred altogether. Now its played terrestrially with an edited version (not-uncommon in syndication, but in this case, specifically to take out that line), but the original cut can be seen on DVD and on satellite. --- Jaz 03:04, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
If I remember correctly a certain episode of TOS that dealt with a recreation of Nazi Germany was also banned in Germany for a long time, or maybe it was just not shown. Don't know if it jas ever been shown on TV here. - Bell'Orso 15:42, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
It's TOS: "Patterns of Force". The article says it was eventually aired in Germany in 1999. Hokstein 06:06, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. - Bell'Orso 16:37, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
