    I'll do "Broken Bow" also. TCW aside, it's a good pilot, the rest of these are just more developed.

    I'll eliminate Broken Bow with my vote. I was a lttle surprised it made it out of first list, I always found it a bit bland. New list:

    "Damage" I do find something a bit bogus about how BIG that "Azati Prime" cliffhanger is, and how easily they weasel out of it here.

    I actualy quite like Damage. I thought it was a good follow-up to Azati Prime. I'll vote for In a Mirror Darkly I, which is a great episode, though it's mostly just showboating in the MU. I prefer the stories in the other episodes that are left.

    Damage has sustained too much heavy fire to survive.

    In a mirror, Darkly 1. it's fun but also disconnected from the show because it doesn't affect a single regular character in any way, shape or form.

    I love each of these left pretty equally. So I am left with no choice but to settle it... by using the dartboard.

    And the point goes to "UNITED".

    I'm basically tossing a coin, but I'll give a point to "United" this round, on the basis that I was just more surprised with how good "Proving" and "Darkly" were, whereas the elements of "United" have me expecting it should be a great episode, so it's a lower degree of difficulty they're tackling.

    I’m disbanding United if only because it didn’t quite match my lofty expectations.

    I will give my last point to "In A Mirror, Darkly." It is absolutely inspired, but it is a tangent episode. Absolutely one of the most satisfying tangent episode in the franchise, but still. Meanwhile, "Proving Ground" is a key part of the core Enterprise narrative, and also my reaction on seeing it the first time was "why does no one talk about this as one of the great Enterprise episodes?"

    I'd almost want to give the win to "Proving Ground" on it's clever antennae work alone!

    I would go for Shran in a heartbeat. He was easily one of ENT's best chracaters, and their treatment of the Andorians was very well done. I'll vote for In a Mirror, Darkly I. I still really like it, but it doesn't compare really.

    Dartboard time again. I love both episodes equally, one because of Shran, the other because we finally get a decent ENTERPRISE theme, not to mention that story was fantastic.

    My final point goes to "PROVING GROUND".

    PG was a great fun character episode within S3 rather than an (albeit) good TOS callback

    I really like both episodes. Well, I think In a Mirror Darkly is the best Mirror Universe story after TOS's Mirror, Mirror.

    Proving Ground gets my vote and therefore

    "in a Mirror, Darkly" is the big winner of this competition.
