Lt. Yar is abducted by the leader of a people who abide by a strict code of honor, which requires her participation in a fight to the death.

Tropes used in Code of Honor include:
  • Back from the Dead: Yar's opponent is killed in combat, beamed aboard the Enterprise and resuscitated, allowing her to divorce her husband and choose a new mate. Talk about your all-time backfires.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The only all-black colony in Trek is full of violent savages, and lead by a man who kidnaps Yar to force her to marry him. Err... oops? SF Debris' review goes into the full details of the complete racefail of this episode.
