    Some of these episodes are really questionable. Journey's End was one my least favorite episodes, period. How did it make the list??

    Journey's End... it's the only Wesley episode on this list. ;)

    That said, I'd say alter the rules where the numbers don't reset with eliminations. Otherwise this is gonna drag on awhile. We all won't be so agreeing in future rounds. ;)

    Journey's End. Wesley, generally bad. Insubordinate douchebag Wesley, even worse.

    We played this game a couple of years ago and after a bit of trial and error, it was generally agreed that this method works fine. I'd be open to adjusting that in future if there's call for it but not mid-game.

    Now I'll vote for Deja Q. It's a funny, entertaining episode, but certainly not in the same league as some of these.

    One point to Deja Q. An OK outing, but my least favourite Q episode from the franchise.

    Preemptive Strike. I don't like the fact they booted Michelle Forbes' character from TNG at the end just in case she might change her mind for Voyager. Maybe she could have been in one of the movies if they hadn't booted her? Nope, just gone.

    My vote goes to 11001001(usually known as the Bynar episode). Not only is it freaking unpronounceable but I never understood the hype about Minuet. She really didn't do much for me.

    I'm going to go with "11001001". The other episodes are far stronger.

    A point to tapestry. Really I can't believe three Q episodes got here. Basically Q pretends to be god then Picard is stupid and has sex with someone half his age then ends up yelling at Q as usual. Uhhhgggnnngghhh.

    You might want to edit your post, as 11001001 has two votes not one.

    11001001. It's good as far as Season 1 goes, but it just doesn't hold up compared to the later eps.

    11001001, it's a good episode, certainly one of the better ones in the first season, there's nothing really wrong with the episode that merits nitpicking, but nothing that great either.

    I've added up my vote and the one that went missing in the copy pasting two posts earlier, so that's goodbye to Bynars.

    Pre-Emptive Strike. I really enjoyed Ro and hated how they wrapped up her character. HOW I wish she accepted the DS9 role...

    ^The numbers reset when an episode is eliminated.

    Disaster - Great episode, except for Picard being stuck with kids. Sticking Geordi and Beverly in a cargo bay was lame. I guess they had too many characters and ran out of interesting scenarios.

    Disaster... Troi incompetently bumbling about on the bridge, Picard with kids and singing. It's universal in Trek that singing doesn't ever help.
