Re: Star Trek morality test - best and worst episodes
Surprised no one's mentioned "The Drumhead" from the fourth season of TNG. The episode offers a fascinating commentary on the rights of an individual and the danger exemplified not only by people who would willingly trod upon those rights to push their own agenda, but also by the fear and paranoia that drives these people's actions in the first place. "Homefront" and "Paradise Lost" would be similar examples from DS9.
