    With the season finale having "aired" on Episode of the Week, it's time to rate the episodes.

    You can rate them almost any way you want to. For example:
    • List all episodes from favorite to least favorite
    • Assign a score to each episode
    • List just your favorite episodes, or your favorite and least favorite
    I'll construct a preferential ballot from your post and tally the results with the Schulze/Beatpath/CSSD method.

    Here’s mine:
    Favorite
    Skin of Evil

    Like it
    The Arsenal of Freedom
    Symbiosis

    OK, but nothing special except by S1 standards

    Arguably the most forgettable episode of Star Trek ever made:

    Home Soil.

    ^ Just to clarify: are you ranking Home Soil below Code of Honor, or are you leaving it unranked?

    Code of Honor is by far (for me anyway) the worst episode of the year. I just find Home Soil so amazingly beige it's hard to care, though I suppose a fair rating for the stats would put it slap in the middle. Nothing bad, you just don't remember a damn thing about it afterwards. Code of Honor, if nothing else, is never forgotten once seen. :)

    OK. I'll treat your vote as "no opinion" on Home Soil.

    Sorry, that's me cutting and pasting episode titles and re-arranging them.. Please ignore the second placing for this episode.

    Sorry for making more work twice, please don't shoot me off in a satellite in order to get woken up by Picard patronising me. :o

    Awesome

    Ranked by 5 star system

    Pretty much anything rated 3.5 stars or above I wouldn't be ashamed to have others see (Oh that's Star Trek), 4.0 is or higher are usually the episodes I would openly recommend to someone.

    5.0 Stars - None (Excellent)
    4.5 Stars - None (great)

    4.0 Stars (Very Good)
    11001001

    3.5 (Really Good)
    The Big Goodbye
    Conspiracy

    3.0 (Fair)
    Where No One Has Gone Before
    Heart of Glory
    Datalore

    2.5 (average)
    The Arsenal of Freedom

    2.0 (Poor) and not in order
    Encounter at Farpoint
    The Last Outpost
    The Battle
    Haven
    Too Short a Season
    When the Bough Breaks
    Coming of Age
    Symbiosis
    The Neutral Zone

    1.5 Stars (bad)
    The Naked Now
    Lonely Among Us
    Justice
    Angel One
    Homesoil
    Skin of Evil
    We'll Always Have Paris
    Hide & Q

    1.0 Stars (Awful)
    Code of Honor

    .5 Stars (none) (Terrible)

    Zero Stars (none) (Garbage, having no value)

    My second Favorite Star Trek series, yet the worst 1st season of any Trek. Oh well, things do get better.

    I think I view season one more positively than others do. I think most episodes have their merits, but it is, overall, very "average."

    So with a somewhat particular order:

    "Encounter at Farpoint" B-
    "The Naked Now" C
    "Code of Honor" D
    "The Last Outpost" C+
    "Where No One Has Gone Before" C+
    "Lonely Among Us" C+
    "Justice" C-
    "The Battle" B
    "Hide and Q" B-
    "Haven" C
    "The Big Goodbye" C+
    "Datalore" B+
    "Angel One" C-
    "11001001" B+
    "Too Short a Season" C
    "When The Bough Breaks" C
    "Home Soil" C-
    "Coming of Age" C+
    "Heart of Glory" B-
    "The Arsenal of Freedom" B+
    "Symbiosis" C-
    "Skin of Evil" B-
    "We'll Always Have Paris" C
    "Conspiracy" B+
    "The Neutral Zone" B

    Now I really want to know, mathematically, what that flowchart is based on.

    Is this based on that same algorithm they use to figure out the social pecking order of apes, where they build a series of won/lost comparisons into a DAG?
