    Simple rules: Somebody describes an episode or movie in the form of a limerick. Everybody else guesses the episode title.

    Because I assume more people will be interested in guessing than in writing, no need for a "chain" like in the other Name That Episode threads. Answering doesn't require you to post the next limerick, and you can post your own without answering the one before it.

    I'll start with an easy one.

    There once was a big-eared young lad
    Whose battle scars made him so sad
    He lived in a fake
    Till a buddy named Jake
    Convinced him it wasn't so bad.

    Bingo!

    Next limerick:

    A hot-shot young officer, she
    Wants a job that is now held by me
    I'm feeling less frisky
    Her plans are too risky
    On this ship I play safe, you see.

    ^^ Yep!

    Next up:

    A woman that I used to know
    Took a dead planet and made it grow
    Now my buddy's down there
    And it just isn't fair
    'Cause I think the whole thing's gonna blow.

    ^^ Got it.

    Next:

    A ship that came out of the blue
    Said "Hello, sir, how do you do?"
    We counted by threes
    To end the disease
    Of the crew's very strange deja vu.

    @Farscape One got it.

    A mysterious man that I met
    Has a headache so bad you can bet
    If I can't make it right
    Within a few nights
    His life will be under a threat.

    There once was a woman from Vulcan
    Who saw that the rebels were sulkin
    She kidnapped the King
    But the strangest thing
    His thoughts would escape not his noggin

    Dukat was called a "king" by the "mutants" from "Statistical Probabilities"

    Yep!

    A young man, I think it was Wes
    Put us all through a terrible test
    Chased after a ball,
    And took a big fall
    Jean-Luc had to deal with the mess.

    True. However, remove verse 3 and 4 and that applies to several episodes.;)

    Yes, there were numerous possibilities for that one. :D

    Next:

    A man of conviction am I
    With principles mighty and high
    But I blew up a ship
    To cut short its trip
    And I didn't get caught in the lie.
