Re: My Trek Rankings By Season


I recommended TOS's "Doomsday Machine", "Mirror Mirror", and "Trouble with Tribbles" as a starting point because I know he is a guy who more than likely enjoys guy like things like hot girls in mini skirts, explosions, cool special effects, and the like. Of course I don't want to speak for you Joeman.

However, I just know that if I went back in time and wanted to convince myself that TOS was awesome. I would show myself these Remastered episodes to start.

Now, if I knew my past self was committed to watching the entire series no matter what: Then I would have myself watch it chronologically like this then...

Side Note:

~Of course TAS (The Animated series) can be skipped over if it is hard to get into it. Also, the Animated episodes are listed by stardate and not by airdate. So you will have to watch it according to this list and not the way that it presented within the DVD Complete Set.

Side Note 2:

* In addition, I recommend watching the Remastered Version of the original unaired pilot episode titled "The Cage" instead of the extended version. The extended episode of "The Cage" has black and white shots (or footage) mixed with color shots. it is a bit uneven or unnatural to watch the episode that way for the first time. Also, one will have to rent or buy the 3rd Season of the Remastered TOS in order to view "The Cage" first, too (Original Series Season 3 Disc 7).
