The scariest episode of Star Trek?

Or the most effective horror episode at least? What say you, and why?

TNG: Schisms

Alien abduction stories have always hit a nerve with me and scared me ever since I was a kid. I don't know why.

Re: The scariest episode of Star Trek?

TOS - Cat's Paw. The witches chanting Kirk's name was spooky.
TNG - Frame of Mind was scary.
Phantasms and the one where they all deevolved - Braga at his creepiest
DS9 was one big horror show.
Distant Voices was a retelling of Frame of mind with a monster in it stalking Bashir.
VGR - Species 847 were spooky and scary and the hirogen were nasty.
ENT - the direction the characters were going in was scary. Vulcan zombies. eh..

TNG's "Genesis" used to scare the shit out of me when I was younger.

TNG's Night Terrors.

I'm over 30 years old, and still look away when all those dead bodies sit up straight as Crusher's examining them!

TNG Night Terrors - an obvious choice.

TNG Time Squared - though just a Trek time travel story, this one creeeeeped me out big time. Very effective.

This!

Especially the scene where they recreate the surgical chair on the holodeck (complete with the alien's ominous clicking sounds). One hell of a psychological episode!

None of them were scary, let's face it.

The TOS episode with the Mugato. That thing is scary! Especially how it attacked of nowhere.

Schisms is an easy choice. Frame of Mind definitely had an unsettling feeling about it, and so did Night Terrors. Identity Crisis was kind of creepy, too.

Not the episode, but the scene where you see a woman fumbling her way around a corner then you realise. she. hasn't. got. a. face!

Scared me half to death

Re: The scariest episode of Star Trek?

The best of both worlds is among the scariest trek, the borg are fucking relentless in that episode. The captain being abducted was genuinely creepy, the way they just barge in and decapitate the entire ship. TNG era borg were absolutely horrible.
