    This is exceedingly difficult. I can't bear to give it to "IN A MIRROR, DARKLY"... the awesome title music and sequence used alone made it great, never mind how much fun the episode was and a clever explanation of the origins of the Terran Empire we know. (You have no idea how much the regular theme song annoyed me.) And the episode, in a roundabout way, cements the ideals of the Federation and STAR TREK... that we are all better and achieve greater together. Think about it... the Defiant was sent back in time over 100 years. That means the Empire was basically stagnant in technology for a century because when we see the mirror Enterprise, she has almost the exact same technology.

    And as much as I love the suspense and great character work of "MINEFIELD", "AZATI PRIME" was more memorable and a big game changer. My point, reluctantly, goes to "MINEFIELD".

    Ack! Can't choose! AP edges out IAMD1 because it shocked the hell out of me then and it still does. I love IMAD1 and it kicked off a ton of fan fiction on my end, but Azati Prime is so much rawer. It felt like Trek we had never seen before, and I see a direct line from it to DISCO.

    In a Mirror Darkly has lost.

    Azati Prime is the king of this mountain.

    It's always fun to follow the progress and see which episode ends up at the top of the heap. The comments were very entertaining!

    Thanks to all of you who chimed in, and to BlueStuff for running the show. :techman:

    I have been binge-watching old Trek since Discovery was getting close. Up to season 3 on Enterprise.

    With season 2 fresh in my mind, hard for me to conceive of Carbon Creek not being the best episode of the season, if not the first two seasons.
