Well, obviously going with The Man Trap as the series opener was a huge mistake. Look how it put Star Trek in a hole that it has never come out of.
Boy, you're not kidding! Horrible choice! I mean, it hooked me! ...while it hasn't ruined my life, it became an addiction I never could quite kick.

The Man Trap, no doubt, was the best choice. The only other option for me would have been The Corbomite Maneuver, but obviously the extensive special effects of that episode weren't ready yet.
For me personally, The Corbomite Maneuver is the epitome of Star Trek (on many levels). I would have gone with that (if it had been possible) in spite of the fact that one of the best lines of the episode was really set up by WNMHGB.
