"Midnight" was very close to a traditional bottle episode. Only two sets, limited VFX work. Just 8 actors in a small room for the bulk of the runtime.
Good call, but for me (and this is just me being nitpicky), a real
bottle episode is one that uses pre-existing sets, and they are often some of my favorites. One that always stands out to me is TNG's "Disaster." Lots of stuff happening, but it's all on board the Enterprise.
It helps when you have more than one room for a set.
