Over here in Germany, there's a new series of books out, Trek episode guides essentially one book per series, and I've been reading the ones on PIC, ENT and TNG while rewatching the shows. Things like that always include some sort of ratings, and while you agree on many, if not most of them, some leave you puzzled. (For instance the fact that they SKEWER ENT's Similitude, which I always considered a highlight of their third season, while they call TOS's The Mark of Gideon a masterpiece - which in turn not long ago was called one of the worst of TOS by the guys on the Enterprise Incidents podcast) That got me thinking about the standards by which people rate and rank their Treks in general and when and why they diverge from a perceived consensus. Any time you see someone's lists of that sort, there seems to be one of the usual favorites that misses while something else ranks highly that seems... idiosyncratic, shall we say. Myself, I confess that I've always been a big fan of TNG's Sub Rosa - not to the extent that I would include it in a Top 10, but I truly never saw what was so wrong with it. In fact I would rank it as one of my favorite from Season 7. Do you have such cases as well, where your honest opinion goes completely against the consensus? Or in other words: is every episode of any Trek the favorite episode (or among the favorites) of somebody?
