So now it is time for the final part.

When an episode reaches 4 points, it is eliminated. Then a NEW round begins (in this thread) with the numbers restored to 0. Vote ONCE per round. And enjoy! :bolian:

Six exceedingly strong episodes. But for me the weakest is LTBYLB. Nothing overly wrong with the episode but in this field is clearly the weakest.

This one is the easy one, the next round is a lot harder. Perhaps I'll just have to pick one out a hat.

Space Seed - An episode that is remembered more fondly than it deserves to be because of it being the basis of The Wrath of Khan. On its own, it's pretty mediocre.

Saying Let That Be Your Last Battlefield lacks subtlety would be quite the understatement. I'm not even talking about the heavy-handed script or the obvious make-up; stylistically, the episode cannot manage any restraint either, especially with the Batman-style red alert shots.

To me "LTBYLB" does not belong here; it's just an average episode.

Going to have to pick "Space Seed" this time. Sure it gave us Khan, and for me the other episodes remaining are the stronger ones.

I'll vote for The Tholian Web, if only because the explanation for their escape from the web was a little vague, and the other episodes are really terrific.

I'm afraid its Mirror Mirror, even though it features bearded Spock and scantily clad Kirk and Uhura and Spock taking Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Uhura in a fight. Evil Sulu is great too. However Mirror universes don't make much sense to me but I'm probably just voting it because they actually beamed into their counterparts clothes.

I would say The Tholian Web is the weakest for me, though I do enjoy it. The other four are better episodes.

These are all pretty good. I'll go with Doomsday Machine because I found Decker a bit boring.
