List of essential episodes.

EDIT: Wrong forum! Sorry people, this was to go in General.


I'm compiling a list for a friend who hasn't time to watch a lot. I found this thread, but it's far too extensive. My list is minimal.

I'm trying to include all the important story arcs and themes, e.g:
  • The Borg
  • Species 8472
  • Dreams; hallucinations; illusions
  • Boothby
  • Q
  • Eugenics/Augments
  • Crossovers between series
  • Mirror universe
  • Time-travel
  • Nazis
  • Data and the Doctor dreaming or becoming more human; Dr. Soong
  • Transporter accidents
  • Commander Shran's friendship with Archer
  • Federation-Klingon War
  • Dominion War

What themes do you think should be included?

What I need help with are hidden-gem episodes, like One Little Ship, The Haunting of Deck Twelve and Distant Voices. I have no reliable way of finding these episodes. They fall under no convenient theme, or constitute a theme of their own. What hidden gems do you know?

Re: List of essential episodes.

Sounds like a "General Trek" question.

If your friend doesn't have a lot of time, your list looks pretty extensive to me already. I'd just select the best three episodes of each series, no matter what they're about, and expand from that based on what your friend liked/was what interested in.

You've just scratched the surface, friend. But most of your items are non-TOS.
