    Honestly, I've been busier in the last couple of years, plus, I like to get on a roll like you and I just did. If I'm gonna go for the episode, then lets go for the episode. Get 3 lines in every minute. That's the funnest of this to me.

    After having so much fun doing some of these in marathon form with you, like The Wrath of Khan and The Best of Both Worlds, my favorite examples, to post one line then wait for an hour is less interesting. It's still fun, but this is better.

    TWoK and BoB were great episodes to do.

    20 hours 55 minutes.

    It pushes out The Defector from the number 5 spot.

    If I remember right I chose all but Basics from the top 5. I'm King of the TrekBBS.

    Damn! I am a geek.

    Unification is missing from the TNG list of Episodes. I've added it for future reference. I'm just not sure where on the list it goes.

    I caught it while writing this:

    In terms of speed of finishing an episode I have chosen 4 of the top 5. I rule! (I really really am a geek, or just bored, maybe both.)

    In the top 10 you have TNG at spots 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8.
    TOS comes in second with spots 7, 9 and 10.
    And VOY pulling up the rear with the quickest 2 part episode at number 2.

    TNG leads the top 20 with 11 episodes.
    TOS comes in at 5.
    DS9, ENT, TAS and VOY each have 1 episode in the top 20.

    TNG has 23 episodes done.
    TOS will have 22 episodes done with the conclusion of The Naked Time.
    DS9 has either 14 or 18 done, depending on whether or not you count one story arc with different episode titles as 1 episode or 2 or 3 episodes.
    VOY has 10 episodes done.
    ENT has either 6 episodes or 10 again depending on how you choose to count.
    TAS has 2 done.
    All 11 movies have been completed.
