Wow. A lot of Trekkies here.

I tend to like the time-travel episodes the best.
That's why I picked "Yesterday's Enterprise" for TNG because it deals with merging an alternate timeline with our own.

TOS also had "city on the edge of Forever" which most Trekkies think is maybe the best episode ever for any series.

Best of Both Worlds is pretty good though, as is All Good things. So whoever voted for those, good choices. I really haven't watched Voyager or Enterprise enough to make an informed decision about them.

The City on the Edge of Forever.

My favorite series, as a whole, is and will always be Deep Space 9, however. The character depth and the complexity of the overall plot arc of the series was great.

I never watched any of them and the fact that people acutally remember names of individual episodes of any show amazes me.

My wife is the big trekker/trekkie which means I get to watch a lot of Star Trek, especially TNG. My favorites that didnt make the list are "A piece of the Action" in the original series and in TNG the one where Riker goes to a Klingon ship in an exchange program as well as the one where Q shows Picard what his life would be like if he had not fought the Nausicans, got stabbed and had to have the heart operation.

I only watched TOS and TNG. What sucks is I lost interest in DS9 before it became good. From what I understand from my friends, it kind of got off to a slow start, and then became seriously good, and i missed that "seriously good" part.

Other TNG episodes I really liked are The Defector (the Romulan Admiral), the Wounded (the renegate StarFleet Captain), and The Inner Light (Picard lives an alternate life, where he's married, etc.).

Not a big fan of Cause and Effect. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.

Where's Spock's Brain on this list? I think the poll is invalid without out.

For what it's worth, I did need to look up a couple of the TNG episode names in the poll and that I listed above. But I did know all of the TOS ones without looking 'em up.

"Balance of Terror" is a classic from TOS. I can't connect the names of the TNG with the plots and I'm too lazy to Google them. Only watched TOS and TNG.

Sorry for all I left off.

I basically went to the "Top Episodes" lists at tv.com and copied the ones at or near the top that I agree that Spock's Brain, The Inner Light, Space Seed, and Balance of Terror could easily have been on the list.

It's weird, Amniorix's experience with the Series is virtually Identical to my own. I too quit on DS9 somewhere early. Maybe I need to rent some of the later seasons and see what all the fuss is about.

That's "The Trouble with Tribbles". DS9 also reprised it in "Trials and Tribblations".

Both are poll choices.

No, you did great. With so many lines, seasons, episodes it would get to the point where you would have too many up there. All the ones up there are worthy choices.

I'm not sure of the episode names but for TOS, my favorites are the one where the spores make everyone peaceful and Kirk has to piss off Spock to get him out of it, the one where they go back in time and they beam up the pilot who sees them (kind of a silly one, but fun) and "Miri".

For TNG, the one where an alien probe puts Picard in the life of another man and he lives out the rest of that life and watches as the civilation get destroyed. Bittersweet.

TOS- Shore Leave "great humor and imagination"
TNG- Inner Light "truly an emotional story"
DS9- The Visitor "if you weren't crying when Jake was reunited with his father, you have green blood"
V'ger- I suppose the last one because it was over
Enterprise- Symbiosis "I should probably vote for Storm Front since it erased their whole history even though the writers didn't catch it"

As a follow-up I would ask what everyone thinks of the proposed movie with a young Kirk and Spock. Despite denials startrek.com has done a poll asking who should play a young Kirk, and have a poster for the next movie that obviously leads into a Spock/Kirk story.

Really?

What is going on with the upper-ups with Star Trek? After Voyager and DS9, they decide to do a series based on an Enterprise pre Pike and Kirk, now a movie with Kirk and Spock as Cadets?

If there was to be another Star Trek movie, I was hoping that it would have elements from all the TV series - TNG, DS9, and Voyager.


And as for the question of the thread, I was always partial to TNG's "Yesterday's Enterprise".

Seriously, pick up the later seasons of DS9, you won't be disappointed.

"In the Pale Moonlight" is one of the best pieces of TV I've ever seen". I also appreciated DS9's take on "Guadacanal Diary" (Siege of AR-558), and the last 10-episode arc was brilliant, IMO.

I did. And I made it somehow through Voyager.

About season 4 (coincidentally when Worf arrives) everything on DS9 starts to whoop serious a**. The 7 part story arc with the Dominion and "The sacrifice of Angels" capper when Sisco retakes the station is pure joy to watch. "In the pale Moonlight" was one of my fav's as well.

Voyager has some truly awful episodes, but if you can wade through them, there are also some tremendous ones. "Year of Hell" is one of my favorites of any of the series. That episode is awesome. "Timeless" also was very good, with future Kim defying starfleet to rescue Voyager trapped beneath the ice.

DS9's conclusion, though was much more satisfying than Voyager. DS9 wraps up the story arcs of the characters, but Voyager just dumps them off at Earth with 1 minute left to go in the series. After watching them on a journey for 7 years, you kind of want to see them enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Haven't made it through Enterprise yet, but I have to watch Lost season 3 first.

I was, therefore, forced to vote for City on the Edge of Forever from TOS.

Next Generation: Yesterday's Enterprise, followed closely by Inner Light, the Borg two-parter and Reunion.

Deep Space Nine: Way of the Warrior. Worf saved that show.

I didn't like Voyager at all and am not all that familiar with Enterprise, but I think I picked the episodes I remember liking.

No, that's the one where they find the USS Constellation adrift with only the Commodore on board. A planet killer (big ice cream cone looking thing) had crippled the ship and then destroyed the planet Decker beamed them down to. Decker nearly gets the Enterprise destroyed on a revenge mission, and in the end rams a shuttlecraft into the thing, slightly weakening it. Then Kirk programs the Constellation to self destruct inside the planet killer, destroying it.

William Windom played the broken, revenge seeking Commodore Decker - best portrayal outside of any principal cast member ever.

There are some similarities. That's an excellent TNG episode as well.

The closest parallel to Doomsday Machine in TNG is the episode The Wounded, where Captain Maxwell goes on a revenge spree against the Cardassians.

The first three seasons were overall lame - but then they went in a different direction when Worf joined the cast: WAR. War with everybody, basically. They fought the Klingons, the Dominion, the Maquis, the Cardassians, and themselves in the alternate reality. Sure there were still occasional fluff episodes, but overall it was dark and gritty and awesome.

Enterprise was a huge disappointment - all the filling-in-the-blanks opportunities that they squandered. They initially promised it would be more like TOS, but then they went Voyager on us. Clearly they realized the error of their ways, and ramped up the sex and violence, but unfortunately they did it too late to save the show.

But I sure did like seeing Jolene Blaylock in various states of undress all the time. :drool:

Just watched the Klingons/Worf/Dominion/Cardassians all go to war story arc. Damn good.

Best episode for the orginal......Tribbles

Second Best Episode for TNG.........The Borg

Best episode for DS9...DS9 current cast timewarps into the Captain Kirk era and the Tribble episode.

Voyager....Nothing worth noting.

Best episode of Enterprise.........I saw a good episode about Archer havng short term memory loss. Kind of like the the........

Best episode evah........The Inner Light. I think the director was somebody that is now a famous director.

Living a lifetime in mintues. To look back on your life and all the events, children, grandchildren etc. Picard alone in his quarters holding the flute and then begining to play it is one of the best TV moments ever regardless of the show.

They put that flute up for auction and if I would have had the money I would have bought that damn flute.

Adept Havelock
12-12-2007, 04:18 PM
Andrew Robinson actually wrote a novel (quite good IMO, at least for series fiction) following the Garak character after he returned to Cardassia, and quite a bit about how he came to be exiled. It's called "A Stitch In Time", and well worth it for fans of the character.

Dukat was fantastic too. I loved the take on "Hell in the Pacific" they did with Dukat and Sisko trapped on the planetoid in the episode "Waltz". He was also fantastic once he got to take the mask off in the final arc. OMG!!! Dukat is da debbil!


Hmmm...Siege of AR-558 = Guadacanal Diary.... Waltz = Hell in the Pacific. Any other episodes that evoked WW2 flicks come to mind for anyone?

As for Garak, I'm torn between "In the Pale Moonlight" and "Improbable Cause/The Die is Cast" for my favorite episode of his, though he was fantastic in "The Wire" as well.

I kind of wish Moore would have ended the series like he said he wanted to. His original vision for the last scene was our friend Benny Russell (from "Far Beyond the Stars") finishing a page, closing the book, and saying "I'll finish the last chapter tomorrow".


Ziyal: Well, what's going to happen to you?
Garak: Ooh well, let me tell you a story. I once knew a Cardassian, a dashing, handsome young man with a promising career, but one day, through no fault of his own, he found himself exciled and alone with nowhere to turn. But did he give up? No. He struck upon a brilliant plan: instead of fleeing for the rest of his life he sought shelter in the one place no one expected him to go: in a stronghold of his people's most hated enemies. There, surrounded by hostile strangers, he built a life and there, against all odds, against the merciless logic of the universe itself, he thrived.
Ziyal: By becoming the greatest tailor in the galaxy.
Garak: And the moral of the story, my dear, is to never underestimate my gift for survival.


Kira: Come on Garak! We can fight for a free Cardassia!
Garak: I have a better motivation, Major. (glances at Mila's body) Revenge.
Kira: (hushed) That works too.
