Okay, for TOS, the best eps include:
"Errand of Mercy" (first appearance of the Klingons)
"Balance of Terror" (enter the Romulans)
"Journey to Babel"
"Devil in the Dark"
"Mirror, Mirror" (first appearance of Mirror Universe)
"City on the Edge of Forever"
"The Trouble with Tribbles"
"The Doomsday Machine"
I'll let somebody else tackle the latter-day series.
This is a pretty perfect list of some of the best TOS episodes. I would add "Space Seed" to the list, though.
As for the original movies, 2-4 is a pseudo-trilogy with 2 and 4 being solid entries and 3 being weaker, but not awful. The 6th movie is pretty phenomenal too and is the last time the original cast appears on screen together.
Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
