(written from a Production point of view)

The prisoners' dilemma is a type of game in game theory. The script of Star Trek contained a number of questions and answers that could be used in the skill dome scene, including one about the prisoners' dilemma. The question-answer pair was as such:

Q: In an infinitely repeated classic prisoners' dilemma, how many subgame perfect equilibria exist?
A: Infinitely many.

The question-answer pair does not appear to have made it into the film.
