    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! :bolian:

    Let's just get this formality out of the way. A Night In Sickbay. One of the most horrid episodes ever. I want to water the script myself.

    Precious Cargo because the role of Kaitaama could have been played by a Swiffer mop with more emotion and finesse.

    Edited to remove "A Night In Sickbay" due to crossposting but as for mine "Canamar". For me Sen two is filled with a lot of fairly average episodes for ENT with very few standout episodes or truely bad ones when comparing against other episodes in this season. And one of the worst has already gone.

    I'll take out The Communicator, it's one at least three that need to go still.

    Carbon Creek - Much like with Voyager's 11:59, the show subjects us to a side story about a crew member's relative, also played by the cast member. It's hard enough caring about these wooden characters, but having to watch their relatives?

    This is the only episode in all of Star Trek that I stopped midway and never finished. Fish-out-of-water Vulcans, "quaint" 1950s America, nah, I gave up. I've been told it was actually a decent episode, but the premise turned me off and I never went back.

    Regeneration... they just had to do a Borg episode for no other reason then "Hey a Borg episode would be cool!" You'd also think this is the sort of thing they'd document everything about too. Along with the Ferengi. Would've really been useful to be in TNG's library.

    "Stigma" is gone. An 'AIDS' episode that was too late to really have any kind of impact, whilst also showing just how badly they had warped and twisted the Vulcans for the series.

    Horizon is a boring episode, and isn't helped by a wooden Anthony Montgomery carrying it.

    Regeneration gone already? Wow...but, hey, to each his or her own. For me, I never cared for Cogenitor so, I'm taking it out.

    Somehow Canamar's still on the list despite having been removed by MacLeod.

    I'm removing Bounty - IMO one of the worst episodes of ENT.

    Edit to remove Cogenitor due to cross-posting - sorry to see Carbon Creek and Cogenitor already gone, 2 of my favourite episodes of season 2...

    "The Crossing" Alien entitties take over the bodies of our heroes. Not exactly a new idea for ST.

    Would definitely have ditched Dawn (yawn). So The Seventh. Dull.

    Well, some good ones gone already. Let´s get rid of "Vanishing Point". Not a bad episode, but it´s really not much more than a remake of TNG´s "Remember Me".

    I will have to go with "Dawn" as the next to go. Just a remake of that movie with Louis Gosset Jr.

    Seems like you copied an older list, feek61: "Dawn" was out already, just as "The Seventh". The current list should be
