Comfort Episodes (all Trek)

OK I wasn't really sure which series to post this because I want to talk about all series.

So everyone has a comfort book or film or something they watch when they're sad or have nothing else to do or when it's raining (unless you're a 'rain what rain?' type person like me). So I'm wondering what's your comfort episode or Star Trek? Any series, and season, I don't care.

I have a few from different series so mine would be:

TOS - Whom Gods Destroy (I just find Garth utterly hilarious and the fight between Kirks at the end makes me laugh)
TNG - A have a couple:
The Arsenal of Freedom (I LOVE this episode although I think there was potential for some great Picard-Crusher stuff, I think the plotline is great. The first day I saw this episode, I watched it I think 4 or 5 times THAT DAY
and Data's Day (This is just a heartwarming episode. Every bit of it is so entertaining and well done)
DS9 - Our Man Bashir (Just YES)

So that's mine, what's yours?

Re: Comfort Episodes (all Trek)

Currently Enterprise is the only complete series I have, with Season 7 of DS9, and a scattering of episodes from the other series through Fan Collective packages.

I tend to look through them all, but the one I always keep going back to is TOS: Mirror, Mirror. Considering I first saw it in 1967 or thereabouts, I think it has a great shelf life.

For all-series questions like this, you could have put it in the General Trek Discussion forum, where it would probably get more replies. Ask a mod to move it for you.

My def of 'comfort episode' is, a show you can put on and then clean the room. "Data's Day" doesn't work for me because of all the Romulan intrigue that demands my attention.

TOS- Trouble With Tribbles.

The Enterprise Incident had the ship surrounded in the Romulan Neutral Zone. The space launch thing you're thinking of might be Assignment: Earth.

Re: Comfort Episodes (all Trek)

TOS: Spectre of the Gun, The Trouble with Tribbles
TNG: Where No One Has Gone Before, Yesterday's Enterprise
DS9: Trials and Tribble-ations

If I have a huge block of time to kill, sometime I'd like to watch TOS "The Tholian Web," then ENT "In a Mirror, Darkly," and finally end with TOS "Mirror, Mirror"

I wish the book actually existed in real life. It would be the Sharktopus of novels; so bad it's good.

Re: Comfort Episodes (all Trek)

Any episode with Q!

I'll answer this one more seriously when I have access to all the episode names!

But yeah I tend to indulge in any episode featuring Q though.

Re: Comfort Episodes (all Trek)

First one that came to mind is "Trials and Tribble-ations." Just a fun episode from beginning to end!

Actually, any episode that dealt with time travel got a lot of repeated viewings from me, but "Trials" is at the top.
