Edith's death - because it's the most dramatic.
Any specific reason why you find it as the most dramatic?
Kirk understands that there are casualties. Risk is their business. But this is one of the few times when he has to deliberately sacrifice someone for a greater good, and it was someone he loved. It's not an easy choice, it hurts Kirk a great deal, and the episode's delivery is extremely effective.
