    So sad. Some of the best season one episodes have been removed.
    My choice is Datalore. I don't like any of the episodes with Lore in them.

    Where No Man Has Gone Before
    11001001
    Home Soil
    Coming of Age
    Heart of Glory
    Skin of Evil
    Conspiracy

    I gotta remove Home Soil for one reason: it's boring.

    Eliminating Coming of Age, all the remaining episodes are clearly superior to it.

    Where No One Has Gone Before
    11001001
    Heart of Glory
    Conspiracy

    I suspect I know which one will be the last episode standing.

    I just noticed this list has an error.

    The episode is Where No One Has Gone Before. Political correctness, dontchaknow.

    It's also my choice. Of the four that's left, it's the one I like the least. It's a great episode aside from the Roddenberry wankfest. So the character with his namesake is now a Mozart, going beyond space and time. Wonderful.

    What gets them out of this mess is collective happy thoughts? This isn't Neverland.

    11001001
    Heart of Glory
    Conspiracy

    You forgot to copy and paste the list then remove your choice.

    I eliminate Conspiracy because I think the bug thing ended up being stupid and gross and didn't go any of the interesting places it could have gone.

    And I wouldn't mind either of the others winning.

    11001001
    Heart of Glory

    11001001 doesn't have Klingons.

    I declare Heart of Glory the ultimate champion.

    It's good because of the effects and the abandon ship sequence. Aside from that, I agree.

    No error, that's the name of the episode, is it not?

    I loved both "Heart of Glory" and "11001001" so I'd have had no problem with either episode winning. I'll get season two started momentarily.

    It's not a great shock that "Heart of Glory" won.

    That's the correct title, but throughout most of the list, it was called Where No Man Has Gone Before. Only the TOS episode had that name.

    Ignoring the Wesley stuff, Where No One Has Gone Before is my favorite TNG episode of all time. I was hoping it would survive to the end. I felt this episode more than any other in the entire series stayed true to what Star Trek was all about.

    The Last Outpost wasn't that bad. It feels like a TOS'ish episode. We'll Always Have Paris was pretty good too, even if the MILF was wearing pyjamas the entire episode. They got the cut way too soon.

    Justice was grating, but I liked the super god station in orbit. Reminded me of those light beings in the original Battlestar Galactica (the 78 series). It was cool seeing the same model again in Conundrum. I agree the rest was gag inducing, like "They make love at the drop of a hat. Any. Hat. Sir." Yeck! sounds like Roddenberry fanwank dribble.

    The only 2 things memorable in Heart of Glory were the "Geordi" vision, and the Klingons building disruptors out of their shoes and belts buckles.

    Just about floating around. I work full time these days and I'm a bit busier in my free time. This real life business really eats into my procrastination. :( ;)

    That was the main problem I had with this episode. This episode almost turn me off TNG all together. I just didn't the way the crew was disrespecting these people. Made almost feel sorry for the Wall Street guy who sort of help them out when he notice that the Romulans were lying.
    I wished insted of having that Redneck country singer, they should of had a Ozzy Osbourne or Steven Tyler type rocker. That would have been interesting.
