This episode is about race relations, a taboo subject in entertainment TV at the time, and so was never aired. It featured Nichelle Nichols as the fiancé of a Black Marine, Ernest Cameron, who encounters a White Marine guilty of racial bullying while they were in the same High School. Ernest Cameron is still angry, to the point of starting fights. The Gary Lockwood character, Lt. Bill White, tries to make peace between the two men. Lt. White's superior officer points out that he is attempting to accomplish in a few weeks what better men have been unable to accomplish in a lifetime, to overcome racial prejudice. The episode can be viewed at The Paley Center for Media in New York City.
