    Well, I am curious of HopefulRomantic's answer too, since Unexpected would be my second guess. ;)

    Alas, no.

    Clues:
    1. A character with terrible luck has another bad day.
    2. Rather repulsive culinary choices, by Earth standards.
    3. The clock is ticking.
    4. Comfort from an unexpected source.
    5. A debt is paid.
    6. A glimpse at the future.
    7. Badass problem-solving.

    Eliminated episodes: The Xindi, Extinction, Broken Bow, Dawn, Vox Sola, Sleeping Dogs, Unexpected, Future Tense

    Well, every new clue makes it more mysterious the episode for me. I am tending again between two episodes..Rogue Planet?

    Wait... is this "THESE ARE THE VOYAGES..."?

    Tucker has another bad day, they have to get Archer to the ceremony in time, Plomeek broth is not the food of choice for humans, we never expected a TNG finale, Archer evens up his debt to Shran, we see the crew 6 years after the previous episode, Tucker used a pretty badass trick to blow out the wall.

    These are the Voyages??? What could it be? A new advertising campaign for a travel company? Just another youtube channel? Cheap, heavy perfume for teenager? Never heard about it. :razz:

    Nope.

    I cannot believe I've lasted this long. I will remember these heady days when one of you is leading the game and I am totally clueless. You've made my week, thank you. :adore:

    8. Adversaries that are hard to hit.

    Himpf...At least one of us has extremely fun. :biggrin:

    The Crossing (I am normally for the reasoning for guesses, but I think for this round, it is so obvious why I picked all those episodes)

    Sorry, no.

    I thought of something today... what if stumped players could "buy a vowel" to help solve the puzzle if it hasn't been guessed after a certain number of clues? For instance, you could take one of the clues and ask for more information. Or maybe ask a question about it. I'm not sure which would work the best, but the idea would be to give players a little more info, but hopefully without giving the whole show away. Cuz this game has always been about torturing the players, imho. :p (I speak as a truly tortured past, and probably future, player.)

    Example: "1. A character with terrible luck has another bad day."

    More info: this character has appeared on the show many times, but has never had any lines of dialogue.

    Ohh, I think sometimes going through the way is more enjoyable than being at target. So, we enjoy the game.

    I always thought the one with the terrible luck should be Trip. He had enough lines to being disqualified. Hmm, Michael Rostov has lines.Out. Crewman Zabel? No. Crewman Kelly? No. Random Suliban guy? Maybe. One of the Soval's backround Vulcans? Nah. Ohhh, I got it, I got it.. Porthos! It's Porthos. Remember what has happened with it at Kelvin Timeline? We can call it a terrible luck. Well, Porthos.:nyah:

    A Night in Sickbay? :ouch:

    IN A MIRROR, DARKLY, PART II?

    Kelby is having another bad day, though Mirror Universe version. We also get some information about Archer's future in his record.

    No, to both guesses. I guess I get to keep torturing you. :evil:

    But first! I have belatedly realized that I made a slight error with one of the clues: 5. A debt is paid.

    The correct clue is: 5. A debt is owed.

    My apologies. I guess dragging in here at 1am catches up with me sometimes. :alienblush:

    And now, the next clue:

    9. Archer takes on a dangerous task so a subordinate won't have to.

    UNITED?

    Archer goes in the place of the Tellarite, and Shran is owed a debt of blood.

    Archer's solution of cutting off an antenna wurhout killing Shran is badass.

    I agree on the badass Archer/Shran battle! But no.

    You won't say that it should be The Andorian Accident, won't you?
    (If not, there is only one episode, you can have it Farscape :hugegrin:)
