Re: The Fight: worst episode ever?

Regarding "The Fight" - The whole concept of chaotic space came off as extremely ridiculous to me as a kid and it still does.

The doctor taunting Chakotay in his vision, saying boxing was dangerous and you ended up as a "crazy old man" made me scoff in disbelief as a twelve year old. It came across as way too corny to be taken seriously. It was pretty much a parody, not a real episode.

IMO "Threshold" was the worst, though, as it seemed like cheap fan fic written by a fifteen year old to me. What puts it over as the worst episode of Trek in general for me is the way Tom pulls his tongue out and laughs. We switched genres and it was suddenly briefly like a cheesy horror film. The salamander babies couldn't make it worse for me after that.
