The least disliked episode of ENT - Season Three
 
This is a game that was played here a couple of years ago, and it proved to be a lot of fun, spanning across each Trek series, as well as a great way to mentally revisit those episodes you may not have thought about in a while. With that in mind, why not play again?

So, here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode.

No tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you feel they would threaten your preferred episode's chance to win.
Pretty simple. Enjoy! :bolian:

Extinction did not go extinct soon enough to spare us Archer, Reed, and Hoshi turning into Neanderthals. And several grisly death scenes-- roasted or fried?

Aha! I shall not miss out this time. I eliminate "Rajiin", because it made Archer into an idiotic fool, and was never mentioned again.

Ah, Season 3. Such a wealth of bad episodes. And some superlative ones too. The final three should be interesting.

But Hatchery? ugh. Can't believe anyone would miss that one. Archer is more of a dick than usual, but this time it's alien bonding goo to blame.

As I may not vote again for a while, can I just rid us of The Shipment as well? I know it's 'useful' as part of the season arc, but man, I just find it a real snoresville to watch and usually skip it.

Carpenter Street has to go next .. It featured a pretty good guest turn by Leland Orser, but it was nowhere near enough to save it.

"Hatchery" is great! :klingon: :p

Are there rules against repeat voting? Obviously one should let a few others play before voting again, but I don't see anything in the OP...

Yeah, Orser really is the best thing in it. This and his psycho hologram in VOY are standouts. I had never seen him before until his Commander Lovok on DS9.

OP said somewhere that you must allow at least 2 other people to vote before you re-vote. Which means it is MY TURN.

Chosen Realm, just not as punchy as it could be.

teacake beat me to it. And yes, I'd prefer others to vote too, but the rules seem to allow it. Anyway, feel I've done my public service :).

And Leland Orser is great.

D'oh, missed that in the OP. My bad. Well, in that case, allow me to take a leak all over the concept of memory DNA. It more or less works in The Island, but I expect more from Trek than I do Michael Bay. "Similitude" goes. :devil:

Just so you all know I will be de-friending the person who deletes my all time favorite episode.
