Well, I'm going to do it:
Best of Both Worlds
There are 2 reasons why I'm doing this. 1) I want to see what episode would win out with this episode out of the picture. 2) There are episodes in season 3 that have much more rewatchability than BOBW, even though it is one of the best cliffhangers ever.
Well I can understand your reason no. 1 - but no. 2? Seriously? And when you say "one of the best cliffhangers", which is/are better? Iīm honestly interested, since I didnīt watch all of DS9 an VOY.
I would say BOBW might be the best cliffhanger in Trek, but I would actually rank Scorpion up there. The shock of seeing Species 8472 destroying an entire planet was extremely shocking, mainly because we found that one race that can beat the borg. I was so excited for part 2 and when that aired, it ended up making a great two parter.
As for episodes with more rewatchability, the shock value of BOBW kind of goes out the window after a few watches. I would watch episodes like Sarek and The Defector more than I would go back to BOBW mainly because the overall episode is just great.
