    I'm surpprised no-one has brought up Where Silence Has Lease yet. I always found that to be a creepy episode. Trapped in the void, on an impossible recreation of the Yamato, Worf losing his mind, auto-destruct and creepy music.

    MikeS, You must have read my mind, I just watched this yesterday an was going to comment on it. Decent episode I thought, and very creepy.

    I never found any of the episodes scary, however the scene in Night Terrors where all the corpses are sitting up was pretty creepy. The whole alien abduction angle in Schisms was pretty creepy too.

    There is very little in any Star Trek show or movie that could scare anyone.

    I always found Phantasms to be one of the most hilarious episodes of Trek - and not for the right reasons.

    "Violations" was a little disturbing.

    Agreed on both. Then again, I was pretty young when the episodes first aired.

    Conundrum was scary, at least its concept was.

    I think that's just a mold of his face. It's not like it actually moves, it's like a plastic shape of his face that's being rotated under the ick.

    According to Frakes, he was actually pulled into that muck.

    Eww...

    "Night Terrors" some good, scary moments in that. But I think the prize goes to "Schisms." Really good, creepy, eerie episode that makes the "alien abduction" story work in this setting. The recreation of the abduction room on the holodeck is a great, fantastic and chilling scene.

    For going into it/coming out of it, sure. But I highly doubt that's his face (with open mouth) coming out of the stuff, especially considering -according to Frakes- it was made from Medamucil and printer's ink.

    "Conspiracy" - Creepy bugs, exploding heads and a mysterious signal sent to parts unknown. I wish they had followed up on that.

    "Frame of Mind".

    And the part in "In Theory" where the lady is trapped in the floor of the deck.

    Would they still use printer's ink to do something like this today?

    Schisms and certain scenes in Violations especially when Crusher had to view Jack Crusher's dead body.

    Frakes really was a "good egg", wasn't he! I remember reading that he swallowed some maggots in Conspiracy and he was (understandably) annoyed that it didn't make the final cut!

    Oh, he was indeed pulled in. But when the face comes up, rotates, then sinks back down, that wasn't Frakes. After all, as it sinks back, you can see the goo coming up in the mouth, and unless Frakes was willing to swallow some and then regurgitate it on cue, that's not the sort of thing a person can do.

    Choosing between Conspiracy and Q Who... Conspiracy wins for me, if slightly.
