Top 25 Episodes of Trek

Neat article about the top episodes among TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT. Can't say I agree with the order or some of the episodes listed/not listed, but it's fun to read through these:

Re: Top 25 Episodes of Trek

Pretty solid to me. I most likely would not have put them in that order but its a solid list.

Re: Top 25 Episodes of Trek

I agree with many of their inclusions. And they hit all the most iconic ones.

That's the most you can hope for from an internet list.

The only insane inclusion IMO is Broken Bow.

The #1 is right.

Certainly some of the others on the list actually belong there, somewhere, but easily 1/3 don't. Certain omissions are also glaring.

It reads like someone's list of personal favorites, with all the sporadic wonkiness that sort of thing entails.

Re: Top 25 Episodes of Trek

Broken Bow? And no Tribble episodes? This is easily debatable as you ask 25 people for their top lists you'll get 26 or more different lists, I suppose.

It is a good list. Surprised The Inner Light didn't make it.

Usually my Top-10 are made up of eight or nine TOS episodes.

Re: Top 25 Episodes of Trek

I think it has to be a Top Twenty before anything from TNG makes it in.

I think the only Modern Trek episode that consistently makes my Top-10 (I'm fickle) is In the Pale Moonlight.

To each his own, but I'd put The Inner Light in my top five.

On the other hand, I'd have to list a lot more than 25 episodes before I got to Broken Bow.

Re: Top 25 Episodes of Trek

I'm surprised I really didn't have an issue with the list. Nice cross section of series but I am surprised Broken Bow was on there and Inner Light was left off.
