    Brit sci-fi mag SFX is having a poll for Star Trek’s Best Moments. I've already voted, but did it quickly, and as soon as I did I realised I'd missed one I really should have picked.

    It's also missing my favourite moment from First Contact, but there's plenty there already.

    Went with Sisko's In The Pale Moonlight log. Closest thing I'd have to a favourite Star Trek moment.

    of those, I think it's "I am Locutus of Borg." Probably the most influential TV moment of modern Trek.

    Fun poll. It was hard boiling it down to ten, but I managed to spread my votes across TOS, TNG, DS9, and the movies.

    (Nothing from VOYAGER or ENTERPRISE, alas.)

    Romulan captain to Kirk: "In a different reality, I could have called you friend.” (TOS, “Balance of Terror"). This is my top moment.

    I picked the same. BoT is my single favorite episode of Trek.

    I completely missed "There are four lights" or that would have been in there. But first thing I did was try and find Best of Both Worlds.

    The end of TVH.

    Spock: "My father says that you have been my friend. You came back for me."
    Kirk: "You would have done the same for me."
    Spock: "Why would you do this?"
    Kirk: "Because the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many."

    'Nuff said.

    I was puzzled to see nothing from Darmok, but in thinking about it I suppose there probably isn't really any one moment in particular that stands out.

    I like how Vedek Yassim's death is there. I love that scene just for Kira's reaction.

    One moment I would liked to have seen on the list, which is probably my favourite line from VOY (just ahead of "Get the cheese to sickbay") is from 'Caretaker', where Kes proclaims: "I saw the sunlight." A defining line for the character given in such a great way, which made me love Kes.
