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.

I agree with

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.
