    Just realised that the names of both the S3 and S4 winners end with "Prime". :p

    In any case, I'll give the first point to The Andorian Incident. Good for the first season, but characterisations are still all over the place, and the Vulcans come across quite badly here.

    This version of the game, more than the other shows, is extremely hard for me. It is populated by some of my absolute favorites.

    That being said, I will be giving my point this round to "TERRA PRIME". I love the other episodes just a bit more... however, Archer's final speech at the end embodies exactly what STAR TREK is about. It's one of my favorite dialogues of the entire franchise.

    Haven’t been on the boards for awhile..but I do like these games! I’ll have to give my point to In a Mirror Darkly , because I, probably one of the minority that is not keen on the evil alt universe.

    I will have to add another point to "Terra Prime" which in my opinion is just not a good episode. It was like throwing the kitchen sink into an episode. And don't even start me on the whole Mars thing!

    I've gotta whack Dead Stop. It's a funky episode and it handles one thing that irritates a lot of us realists - it shows a ship actually being repaired! It also has good continuity with Minefield but truly that's all it's got. The personal interactions are better in the other remaining eps.

    Okay..I think I’m going to have to agree with those of you critiquing Terra Prime. I really think my affinity for it may be tied to the fact that I binge watched the series, and TATV was so abominably BAD, that the prior two episodes were stellar by comparison. Besides, I’m sorry to say I found Peter Weller to be a little OTT.

    @Willow, you already chose to vote for In a Mirror, Darkly this round. You cannot vote again until the next round. I've removed your vote for Terra Prime.

    I'll vote for Dead Stop, which is part of a good pair of episodes but I prefer Minefield.

    I'll add another for Dead Stop. Close call between this and Shuttlepod One for the weakest of the remaining ones, but Dead Stop is just slightly the weaker one for me.

    Minefield - 0
    Dead Stop - 3
    Azati Prime - 0

    I forgot we were doing this. :D

    Dead Stop can now stop dead in its tracks. I'll vote for it again like in the first round - fun, but the others are better.

    Shuttlepod One - 0
    Minefield - 0
    Dead Stop - 4
    Azati Prime - 0

    Going to go with Terra Prime - I agree with @Willow - any affection for it is because TATV is such a disaster by comparison.

    I'll go with Shuttlepod One. That's another one where I saw it knowing it was widely beloved, and my reaction was "it's good, but I would never have seen it as one of the greats..."
