Listening to Kirk reciting the preamble still gives me goose bumps.
Shatner probably delivered the line more effectively than any American TV actor could.

Although non-American and thought episode was clunky, Shatner did do that justice.

Another vote on Omega Glory. Despite the painful analogy (Comms--Communists, Yangs--Yankees) and the appearance of 100% imitation American flag (baffling ridiculous idea), it has some terrific elements and moments.
I just figured one of the early Earth ships packed full of a bunch of Libertarians carrying relics from a bygone era crashed there. Teaching the natives who did fight a biological war and had similar values about the good old red, white & blue.

Better than trying to explain it through time travel or parallel development.

Re: Most unjustly hated episode

Threshold IS a bad episode, nobody should making excuses for it.

Also later run TNG is weak, the true underated gems are from season one and two.

Spock's Brain is clearly the most under appreciated TOS episode. So much good McCoy banter makes it a classic.

I've seen Mask mentioned. I considered this an average episode but I can still rewatch it with ease.

Course: Oblivion

I loved that episode when it first aired and I still think it's awesome. One of the only Star Trek episodes to have an unhappy ending. Some people don't forgive it for the plot contrivance that they forgot they were duplicates, but I think it makes perfect sense, and I love the way they acted out their duplicates until the end.

^^^ That's a great episode. In this case the sequel is better than the original because Demons sucked ass. It's amazing how it produced such a well done sequel.

Ditto. Except, was Course: Oblivion hated? I can think of many more VOY episodes ahead of it

Re: Most unjustly hated episode

I thought Masks and The Royale were ok episodes. Nothing special, but not bad, I could rewatch either and enjoy them. I don't remember much about Threshold, I think I only saw it once, but I remember thinking it was bad. I liked Genesis, I thought it was an interesting episode. The Way to Eden just annoyed me. I'm not a fan of characters like that (i.e. hippies) so I just wanted them to get thrown out of an air lock the entire time. Its not the worst TOS episode by far, but its pretty bad.

Sub Rosa is probably one of my top 10 most hated ST episodes. I don't think it had one redeeming feature, although there were a few episodes worse than it in the franchise. I always hate the romance episodes. I am fine with episodes having some romance, like DS9 episodes with Sisko/Cassidy or Worf/Jadzia having screen time, but episodes that are almost fully devoted to romance/relationships always sucked (Someone to Watch Over Me being the worst, and probably in my top 3 most hated ST episodes).

Re: Most unjustly hated episode

I wouldnt have classified this ep as hated, cause i honestly had no idea it was hated till a few years ago, but my answer is: "Masks"
