What are the core and best episodes?
 
I am trying to create a list of the best and core episodes of Enterprise so I can try to lighten the load on my brother when I show him Enterpise. What episodes am I missing and what episodes do I not need?

You will encounter pressure from some among these parts to omit "A Night in Sickbay". On no account must you give in. ;)

Riker LARPs in the middle of a political and personal crisis. It's not essential to Enterprise, whether you like it or not.

JiNX-01, out of interest what is so essential about Vox Sola? I don't think I've even seen it since it first aired to be honest so can hardly remember it, is it something about the use of force fields?

I also find it off how you've included TCW eps like Cold Front, but not Shockwave 1&2, Future Tense and Storm Front 1&2


Also Borderland but not Cold Station 12/Augments, and United but not Babel One or The Aenar??

And The Forgotten left out of the final Season 3 arc; all the eps from Azati Prime onwards are important to follow the ongoing story I'd say.

And Bound but not Affliction/Divergence? Just seems like some odd choices tbh

In a mirror darkly was the best enterprise episode in my opinion i loved the premise of that show

I agree. These choices are very weird. Stormfront may not have been very good, but it is essential as it ties up loose ends from Season3 and TCW.

I would probably uprate "Shuttlepod One" to a must see. It's one of the best episodes of the first season and it's the start of the Malcom and Trip friendship. I would also downgrade "Vox Sola" from must to see, to recommended. I find it a decent enough episode, but hardly a must see.

Re: What are the core and best episodes?
 
About the only thing I can think of that would make Vox Sola at all essential was the attempt to communicate with the entity. And that may be the first time (chronologically) in Trek where something that is that foreign (it's some sort of colony, it's not bipedal, etc.) is appealed to via communication versus just being shot at.

I didn't list Vox Sola as essential. two ** mean I like the episode.

I realize some of my entries were inconsistent. It was late at night and I was tired.

Essential episodes were in bold face.

I suppose I should clarify my choices.

The best episode of Enterprise is E2.

It is one of the best 3 episodes in all of Star Trek.

BOW BEFORE IT.. and include it in your lists full of drab pineapple cakes!

I've always liked "E2", even back when it was called "Children of Time".
