    This is a game that we play every few years or so, and it's generally a lot of fun, providing a chance to mentally revisit those episodes you may not have thought about in a while. With that in mind, why not play again?

    So, here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters, and wait at least 6 hours after your last vote, before voting again.

    No tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you feel they would threaten your preferred episode's chance to win.
    Pretty simple. Enjoy! :bolian:

    I was distinctly embarrassed by Extinction; it's the first one out.

    I am ripping up "DOCTOR'S ORDERS". An almost exact rehash of VOYAGER's "ONE", but that episode was done better.

    Carpenter Street. Just felt like a S1/S2 Temporal Cold War story that was given a quick rewrite to fit with the Xindi story arc, then shoved out the door.

    Killing off "HATCHERY". The obsession that Archer was forced upon him felt a bit like "SINGULARITY, PART II".

    "Zero Hour" has come -- and gone. And I will freely admit that it has everything to do with its having one of the most bizarre and bogus endings in Trek. Alien Nazis? Are you kidding me? (Oh yes, I know it's been done in Trek before. That makes it worse, not better.) I walked away from that one firmly convinced that B & B were down to just screwing with us.

    The Xindi showed off the new direction of the season, but was a bit average in doing so. The following episode Anomaly would have been a better season opener.

    E² is 2 derivative 2 be allowed 2 continue. As even Mike Sussman admitted, what could have been potentially an interesting storyline got turned into an inferior rehash of DS9's Children of Time.

    Harbinger is an annoying episode! I forgot all about it until I was just refreshing my memory with some of the synopses of the episodes left. The Trip/T'Pol/Amanda material was a bit thin, and the Hayes/Reed fight was stupid.

    Exile has been sent away. Not a terrible episode, really, just a little dull compared to the others here.

    The Council. A good episode, but ultimately it's a little too much set-up for the final two episodes, whereas the other episodes here stand by themselves better.

    "STRATAGEM" is getting the axe. A solid episode, but at the end of the day, it was a reset in a lot of ways.

    Anomaly. Nothing really wrong with it per se, it's just not as memorable as the others here.

    I will eliminate "THE FORGOTTEN". Just so hard to choose, but it edges out as the weakest of the last episodes on the list.
