The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

So with Star Trek 2009 having been a success CBS has been releasing small volumes of episodes calling them "The Best of Star Trek" and "The Best of Star Trek: The Next Generation". It has already been said that there are no plans on the table for a "The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise" DVD so here's my question:

CBS has changed their minds and are going to release the DVD. They contact you and ask you which four episodes of Enterprise are the best in the series. They can be from any season, but you can only pick four total.

Which four episodes do you choose?

(This is hypothetical only)

Re: The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

"Observer Effect"
"Similitude"
"The Forgotten"

...And I have about 10 candidates for the fourth one.

Re: The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

I don't care what the other 3 are, but "Carbon Creek" has to be in there for me.

I'm not even an ENT fan, but Carbon Creek is one of my all-time fav episodes from all the series.

Re: The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

I picked one episode from each season:

Dear Doctor
Regeneration or Cogenitor
Twilight or Similitude
Observer Effect since In A Mirror, Darkly is not an option.

I found this a very tough ask to be honest with you. Well over half of Enterprise episodes have strong links to one another. The pure stand alone stories are frequently the weakest. I got it down two volumes and then thought, this doesn't do the show any justice at all. I didn't manage a single Shran episode. I wanted to have Singularity but traded it off for Observer Effect. My favourites are three-parters from Season 4. It's even impossible to seperate Season 3 with stories like Azati Prime/Damage/The Forgotten or The Council/Countdown/Zero Hour inextricibly linked.

What would it take for me to own a Best of Enterprise DVD? Since I already own the show twice already, in a Limited Edition silver crate containing the hardcases... and the glossy slimlines too. I don't know. I bought the Fan Collectives. There would have to be a couple of newly filmed interviews, which CBS didn't do with the TOS/TNG volumes... They don't seem to be coming to Region 2 and I frankly wouldn't bother with them if they did.

I loved Carbon Creek, but also Home, which should have been soley about T'Pol and Trip on Vulcan.

Re: The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

Too hard with all the best episodes being the linked ones in the last two seasons. I'll give it a shot though.

Future Tense
Impulse
Twilight
In A Mirror, Darkly

I know I'm not allowed that last one, but it was either that or the augments three parter.

Re: The Best of Star Trek: Enterprise

I demand Cogenitor, because who wouldn't want to fly around a star with Andreas Katsulas?
