Re: Vintage lists of best episodes?
Again no "Space Seed" on the list. This again supports the idea that Harve Bennett just picked an episode he thought could have a sequel rather than choosing a "fan favourite."
Just think... Maybe if he'd chosen "Charlie X," that episode would be on all the modern top-10 lists.
