Re: Favorite episodes

1. The City on The Edge of Forever
2. The Doomsday Machine
3. The Naked Time
4. A Taste of Armageddon
5. Balance of Terror

Honorable mentions: The Corbomite Maneuver, Mirror Mirror, Journey to Babel
Season one was the best, in my opinion. Everyone was trying so hard to make it a success, and it showed.

Re: Favorite episodes

I can't limit it to 5 or even 15, as even mediocre or worse episodes can have a single element that I might like. I generally consider the first season the best, even though they were still trying to figure out what were to become the Federation, Starfleet, and all those other little details we eventually accepted as canon standards. "Return of the Archons" is one of my favorites from the first season, and is perhaps the first time Kirk beams down and destroys an entire civilization's lifestyle.

Re: Favorite episodes

Nah . . . limiting a favorite list to 5 is too tough. But in my opinion, the show hit it's stride in season 2.

Re: Favorite episodes

Yes, a five episode listing would be close to impossible for me to compile. This is STAR TREK we're talking about here you know!

Tablet typing always gets me. I didn't realize that a gribble is actually a type of marine worm.

I'd have to agree. I love all three seasons, but I got with 1, 2 and then 3 in order of what I enjoy most.
