The Alternative Factor. To be honest, pre-internet, I would never have considered this to be a weak Trek instalment. Yet, it consistently comes up on "worst of" fan lists. As such, although I don't believe it to be a "bad" episode, I'll throw it in as my vote. In actuality it's one of my favourite S1 entries!

TAF is televised NyQuil. One of the most boring and pointless episodes of TOS. I'd rather sit through "brain and brain, what is brain?" than sit through the tedium of TAF.
Ah well, each to their own. If memory serves, this isn't the first time our respective "Trek tastes" have radically diverged, sonak!!!

that's true-different tastes are what makes this board interesting.

I've often argued this episode is undoubtedly fairly weak - and certainly a dismal and appalling choice to end a series/franchise. But had it been slotted into ENT's swansong mid season, it probably wouldn't have taken so much flack. Possibly, it might be remembered as one of those perfunctory, "OK-ish", filler stories.

Well yeah... the Troi/Barclay duo is usually fondly regarded over on Voyager. That was an example of doing it right, and even when they appeared, they didn't steal the show or distract from the concept of them getting home.

But if you had ended Voyager with Troi and Barclay running a holodeck program about how Voyager inspired them in some non-tangible way, it would've... well been even worse than future Janeway gets them home.
