    Playing God
    Profit and Loss
    Blood Oath

    In that case, changing my vote to "The Alternate". The plot itself isn't great but the Odo development is wonderful.

    I am saving Melora. I enjoyed it for what it was; it doesn't deserve to be the worst. ETA: And Melora was a good idea of a character, the plot was decent, nothing deep or anything, but most of the rest of this list is rather boring.

    Shadowplay - A decent, if not great episode. Good shout-out to the Dominion and a good guest performance from the little girl.

    Thanks for the correction, BlueStuff.

    Invasive Procedures
    Rules of Acquisition
    Second Sight
    Sanctuary
    Rivals
    Profit and Loss

    "Playing God" is a schizophrenic episode. Its micro-universe stuff is not very compelling. The Dax story is OK enough to skate it by though.

    Might as well save Second sight, but only for the Prof. in it. Let their be light.

    Profit and Loss - for an insight into Cardassian society and introduction of Cardassian dissidents, and in particular a new insights into Garak.

    Someone better save Invasive Procedures, it doesn't deserve to be on the list, if nothing else than because it's got John Glover!

    "Invasive Procedures"... because it's the best of limited options.

    I am saving Rivals. It was fun, and O'Brien/Bashir stuff was great.

    Dire final two! :D

    Rules of Acquisition - Sanctuary is just awful.

    Ew, just in time to save the dreck of the season! :eek:

    I'll save Rivals, which was only saved by Bashir in lycra. :D

    EDIT - Okay I posted when everyone else did then apparently. But the bottom two here are terrible, you won't get any argument from me this time. :)

    Haha, I think I tried to correct a fluke and created another. I'm glad everyone else was on their toes about it. Once again I'll blame everything on the slowness of this browser. >_>

    So regardless of any potential confusion I'd say "Sanctuary" lost the round. Not my least favorite -- that award goes to "Second Sight" -- but it's pretty bad.

    I'd say that was pretty far down the list too. I couldn't remember it when I first saw the title, I think I was getting confused with Second Skin. Then I remembered it and wished I'd never dredged it up! :o

    Haha, yes. I occasionally get those two confused as well, which is irksome because I consider "Second Skin" one of the best episodes from the third season. And then I kick myself for that confusion when I remember what "Second Sight" was about.

    Sanctuary is the first ep of DS9 that I remember seeing so it's a bit of a sentimental favourite, but yeah, it's not very good.

    Still, bottom of the list for me would have been Melora, with Rivals and Profit and Loss right behind.
