Re: Need a good starter episode for a newbie

The fried egg look of the aliens aside, "Operation - Annihilate" was always one of my favorites for the way it highlighted the tension in the friendship triangle between Kirk, Spock and McCoy. That's the dramatic underpinning that really made the show unique IMHO. Otherwise I would second the recommendations for "Space Seed", "Balance of Terror" and "Journey to Babel". "Space Seed", aside from being a great episode on it's own, carries so much pop-culture weight as the pre-amble to TWOK.
