Re: Favorite Episode

^Interesting topic. I'll start things off.

My favorite Q episode is "Q Who" from TNG's second season. This episode marked our first meeting with the Borg, as well as a great scene between Q and Guinan in Ten Forward.

Dr. Pulaski was only aboard Enterprise for one year, so it's hard to pick an episode featuring her. "Unnatural Selection" was an interesting episode that had Pulaski as its main character. As far as my favorite episode that merely has her in it, that would have to be "Time Squared." I've always liked time travel episodes, and this is one of the best because it's never explain (on screen) why Picard's double was thrown back into the past.

My favorite Lwaxana Troi episode is actually from DS9. It's "Fascination" from the third season. Most people don't like this episode, but it's a nice change of pace from the episodes surrounding it. It also has several great scenes with Odo, who's always unintentionally entertaining.

I don't know if it counts, but I like "Birthright." Dr. Soong appears in Data's dream sequence. I like the episode more for the Klingon/Romulan storyline at the prison camp Worf finds while looking for his father, however.

No name ensign? "Lower Decks" is a great episode for this. Even though Sito Jaxa appeared in only two episodes, her character was well-played and extremely likeable. I'm always deeply moved during the scene in which Picard announces her passing to the crew. The music combined with the sad undertone of the overhead chime as Picard begins his address makes this a sad but powerful moment in TNG.

A) Tapestry. This is the hardest decision because Q has like three of the best five TNG episodes.

B) Q Who, the best episode of season 2 IMO.

C) Menage a Troi, by virtue of being pretty much her only non-skip episodes. Maybe one or two of her Odo special friendship eps.

D) Do any of Data's ancestors count? (IOW, can I include the ENT Eugenics trilogy?) If not, probably Brothers. The season 7 ones are not so good.

E) This doesn't narrow it down very far. I guess Q Who again.

Re: Favorite Episode

...Was there any season 2 episode without Muldaur?

If she really wasn't, then Measure of a Man.

Actually, it looks like she wasn't. Good call!

Re: Favorite Episode

A) Tapestry
B) Unnatural Selection
C) Half a Life
D) Cold Station 12 (technically, Data's distant ancestor)
E) I believe he had a name, but I must pick the cadet engineer who dies is Wrath of Khan.

Actually, it looks like she wasn't. Good call!
I consider it a major weakness of Q Who that there was no medical examination of the Borg.

Data's ancestors don't count. Only Noonien and his android mom are allowed.

A) Encounter At Farpoint. I know many dislike this episode, but I adore it. Q was simultaneously mysterious and bad ass!

B) Elementray, Dear Data. Marvellous Pulaski interplay with Data and Moriarty.

C) Dark Page. Majel's best performance as Lwaxana.

D) Brothers. A tour de force for Spiner.

E) Red blood cells drained from the red shirt! In TOS Obsession.

How close does a doctor need to get to his patient before scans can be made? It's too bad that Worf or the ensign didn't try to scan with a tricorder, though.

A) The one where he was temporarily mortal. I can't stand the immortal Q.

B) Pulaski is my least favorite TNG character, but Unnatural Selection is IMO the most memorable ep featuring her.

C) Can't remember the name of the episode, but the one where she's stuck with Odo in the turbolift, when he really needs time in the bucket.

D) I would say the Augments arc in ENT, but since that doesn't count, I guess I'd go for Brothers.

E) Hmmm, this is a toughie.

I assume you mean "Deja Q," and not "Q2" or that Voyager Q Civil War episode. Actually, in every Voyager Q episode at least one Q loses his powers or becomes mortal. So much for being all-powerful!

That's "The Forsaken" from DS9's first season.
