The least disliked episode of TOS - Season Three

This is a game that was played here a couple of years ago, and it proved to be a lot of fun, spanning across each Trek series, as well as a great way to mentally revisit those episodes you may not have thought about in a while. With that in mind, why not play again?

So, here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode.

No tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you feel they would threaten your preferred episode's chance to win.
Pretty simple. Enjoy!

I must eliminate For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky. That title is just too damn long! Also it's dull and almost completely lacking in humour.

I'll delete the Savage Curtain. Maybe because I'm English, I don't know, I just didn't find the whole Abraham Lincoln thing particularly entertaining.

Re: The least disliked episode of TOS - Season Three

I'll remove The Mark Of Gideon from the remaining. I do actually like the episode, but have always found the premise just a little silly.

I think I'm going to go for "Turnabout Intruder". It's message was a little heavy handed, we had already seen a female XO so a female CO isn't an unreasnable stretch.
