Re: Episode of the Week : Where No Man Has Gone Before

It ranks highly for me despite it's prototype hiccups because it is, at heart, a solid dramatic story. Kirk makes decisions. He decides to risk following the Valiant, despite what they learned of its doomed mission, creating the problem of Mitchell. He then has to make the decision to maroon, and ultimately kill his friend as a consequence. The Captain drives the action, makes the tough decisions, and lives with the consequences. It's a model Star Trek story.
