I have a small sculpture of Vasquez Rocks that I'm trying to sell, because frankly, its everywhere!!! 

You'll most likely recognize it from the "Arena" episode where Captain Kirk fights the Gorn. Check out my link and then come back to tell us whether or not you think its the most frequently used film location in Star Trek. 

Here are some of the episodes and movies that I know its been used in:

o   Amusement Park Planet in TOS: "Shore Leave" (where Kirk gets beaten up by Finnegan)

o   Metron Asteroid in TOS: "Arena" (that the Metrons have set up for Kirk to fight against the Gorn)

o   Lazarus' Planet in TOS: "The Alternative Factor" (site of the rift between the universes)

o   Capella IV in TOS: "Friday's Child" (where Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the pregnant woman seek refuge)

o   Vulcan in "Star Trek IV" (the peak to which Spock retreats to meditate)

o   Mintaka III in TNG: "Who Watches the Watchers" (site of the "duck blind")

o   Tarok in VOY: "Initiations" (Kazon training ground)

o   Xyrillian homeworld in ENT: "Unexpected" (holo-simulation)

o   Vulcan in "Star Trek (2009)"
