    I forget where but I read (or saw a video comment) where Fred Frieberger said that they added in more romance for female fans.

    Unfortunately which if often the case when someone in another demographic thinks they know what the other demographic wants they are often wrong.

    I am a female fan and while I like a well written romance, the one episode romances of most Star Trek episodes I am definitely not a fan of (with a few exceptions).

    So yeah McCoy's romance in The World is Hollow, Spock/Zarabeth in All Our Yesterdays, and the countless Kirk romances I just don't care at all about.

    I'm going to get rid of "Spectre of the Gun". Not a huge fan of westerns and yet another advanced alien race tests the crew.

    The Lights lights of Zetar. Boring guest star, no redeeming value other than to add Memory Alpha to Canon. A lazy episode just to give a regular actor a "falling in love" episode.

    Thanks! I was undecided between "Requiem" and "Spectre" (another "abuse" to reuse costumes as a budget saving measure...). ;)
    And as a fan of the Matrix Trilogy I felt it to be inappropriate to kick out a Star Trek episode that qualifies as a predecessor.

    Are you kidding? Only the dead would not super leap up to that city to meet her! :)

    Topic:

    "Whom Gods Destroy"

    ST looney bin was well addressed in "Dagger of the Mind," so this episode fell flat. Yes, the inmates are supposed to be insane, but they all projected like theatre, rather than TV drama performances.

    That, and Yvonne Craig must..I mean MUST win the award for the most scenery-chewing performance in ST history (meaning all series). It is no wonder her less than top level gifts played a big role in sinking Batman.

    Yep, that suprised me too :)

    I´ll drop "That Which Survives" ... they went to a lot of trouble to keep unwanted visitors away considering all the power they had available. Anyway, you can only truly appreciate this episode in the orignal (hilarious) German version :D

    We're really getting down to the best that this season had to offer. It's time for the dove to fly, so good bye to "Day of the Dove". Alien entity manipulates events.

    The Enterprise Incident
    The Tholian Web
    Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

    I suspect I know which will be the last two.

    Love all the remaining, but the Tholians edge it over the Romulans, so it's bye bye The Enterprise Incident.

    The Tholian Web
    Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

    Edited to add: I think I've technically broken the rules as Mario de Monti voted the same episode off at almost the same time as me upthread. Apologies.

    Well out of those two I know which I would eliminate and which I would have as the winner.

    I think I can guess, it's Battlefield, right? ;)

    I'll eliminate "Battlefield" (too preachy), so that leaves:

    The Tholian Web

    "The Tholian Web" is a worthy winner, I think the last 3 episode were the best of the season.
