What about "Metamorphosis?" I think it's an exceptional episode; inspiring guest performances from Elinor Donahue and Glenn Corbett and an intriguing story.

When the Companion sacrifices herself, I always cry. It contains the introduction of Zephram Cochran, an important event in Trek history. "Metamorphosis" is one of my favorites, but so low key that I sometimes forget that.
I recently rewatched that ep, too, and it was better than I remembered it. Cochrane's reaction to the idea that the Companion loved him was refreshingly racist and xenophobic. I had a similar reaction to The Empath, which at one time I didn't like. Guess I was too young to appreciate both. -- RR
