Re: Best pure humor episodes

I like message in a bottle (VOY) a lot as a humorous ep.

Even though it may disqualify because it is 'an exciting adventure', and, even worse, relevant to the entire VOY arc (as it furthers the entire series 'plot' ).

Re: Best pure humor episodes

I'm enormously fond of "Explorers" for comedy -- I lose it when Bashir and O'Brien get drunk and wail out "Jerusalem".

That's how I learned that song.

Re: Best pure humor episodes

The entire scene in the messroom on the Klingon ship in Matter of Honor is the only piece of Trek that literally makes me "laugh out loud". Klag asking Riker if he needs a female to breastfeed him. Riker indicating that he could handle two Klingon women in the bedroom. Feels very natural and unforced, unlike alot of Trek "humour". Great scene.

I'd say "Message in a Bottle" counts. There are more than enough laugh-out-loud moments to qualify it as a humorous episode. Apparently, Robert Picardo was trying to cram as many jokes into it as he could. The part where the Doc tells the Mark II to stop breathing down his neck, and the Mark II says his breathing is a simulation, and the Doc says, "So is my neck, stop it anyway!" was written by Picardo.

So many great moments in that episode. Seven remote-tasing a Hirogen, the Mark II trying to crawl into a Jefferies tube backward... I think I'm going to have to watch it again.

"Our Man Bashir" is probably my favorite humorous episode, though. Kira's fake Russian accent and the hilarious bickering between Bashir and Garak never fail to crack me up.
