The Gamesters of Triskelion

Kirk, Uhura and Chekov are set to beam down to examine and maintain a communications relay station, when they vanish from the transporter room in a way inconsistent with normal transport! They have been whisked across planetary systems by the mysterious Providers, who gather "inferior" beings from all over the galaxy and pit them against each other in blood contests. This activity is the only thing that stimulates the Providers. As the three begin their involuntary training, Enterprise begins following the scant evidence their abductors left behind, trying to locate them.

All the times I have seen this episode since it first aired, this time around of watching it is the first time I have noticed that when Kirk was brought down into the underground chamber of the providers, they used the same glass matte background image from the "Devil in the Dark' episode for the underground refining plant. When watching this episode look directly behind Kirk when he is talking to the providers under their dome and it is showing either 2 or 3 of the providers. Once Kirk moves away from his position, you can see that they changed nothing on the image.
