We’ve rated episodes with threads like [THREAD=142236]Hurt/Heal[/THREAD] and [THREAD=148175]top[/THREAD] [THREAD=147974]episode[/THREAD] [THREAD=147383]lists[/THREAD]. This is intended to be the ultimate TOS episode ratings thread. You rate all the episodes (or all the episodes you want to) and post your ratings in this thread. When we have enough participants, they’ll be analyzed with the Shulze method to produce a communal ranking. HOW TO PARTICIPATE Post your ballot in this thread. Each line of your ballot consists of a score followed by an episode title. Scores range from a low of 1 (the worst episodes) to whatever top score you choose. The only information taken from your ballot is relative preferences, so use whatever scale is most comfortable for you. If there is an episode that you have not seen or on which you do not have an opinion, you may either leave it out of your ballot or use a dash (-) for the score. Example #1: Alice has seen ten episodes of TOS. She chooses a 3-point scale where 3 is good, 2 is average, and 1 is poor. Her ballot looks like this: Code: 3 Where No Man Has Gone Before 2 The Corbomite Manuever 1 Mudd’s Women 2 The Enemy Within 2 The Man Trap 3 The Naked Time 1 Charlie X 3 Balance of Terror 2 What Are Little Girls Made Of? 2 Dagger of the Mind - Miri - The Conscience of the King Example #2: Bob has seen ten episodes. He chooses a top score of 100 and gives a complete ranking with this ballot: Code: 100 Balance of Terror 90 The Naked Time 80 Where No Man Has Gone Before 70 The Corbomite Manuever 60 The Enemy Within 50 What are Little Girls Made Of? 40 The Man Trap 30 Miri 20 Charlie X 10 Mudd’s Women Example #3: Charlie grades episodes: Code: 78 The Naked Time 81 Arena 86 Journey to Babel 52 And the Children Shall Lead 82 The Tholian Web 90 The Trouble With Tribbles 74 I, Mudd Include the line “truncate” for a truncated ballot. Episodes not on the ballot are scored below episodes on the ballot. Example #4: David has seen the whole series but just knows his favorites: Code: 50 The City on the Edge of Forever 40 Mirror, Mirror 30 The Trouble With Tribbles 20 Amok Time 10 Balance of Terror truncate Simple as that! You may replace your ballot at any time if you change your mind, want to rate episodes that you had not previously rated, or want to change your ballot for any reason. To do so, simply post your new ballot. Please don’t go back and edit old ballots, because the edits may go unnoticed and the changes uncounted.
