    This is a game that we play every few years, 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, please leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode.

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

    Marauders is the first episode to be axed. What a disservice to the Klingons! They're utter weaklings here, who are run off with ease.

    Let's put Precious Cargo out of its misery - stupid story (like a bad TOS/TNG leftover) and some godawful acting

    "BOUNTY" is gone. The entire episode just didn't work.

    I’ve reinserted The Expanse, as something tells me that Seven of Five was talking about Shockwave II in his description (seeing as it’s the episode that he actually eliminated from the list).

    ;) I'm ruining it all again! That's the 5am start this morning. And too many customers. :o

    Well I meant Shockwave II, yes. I didn't eliminate The Expanse at least, and I was trying to make it seem like season two was better with all of the confusion. :techman:

    I will eliminate Bounty next. Mayweather should have been shipped out or killed off when they worked out he wasn't working. Horizon is deathly boring and full of bad acting.

    I am surprised "A Night in Sickbay" made it this far. What an ill-conceived forgettable piece of garbage!

    Vanishing Point is vanished. Again, done before and done better. Plus, pushing Hoshi one year back and making her once again insecure, whiny is definitely unfair.

    Just stopping by long enough to kick "Cogenitor" to the curb, as I did last time and, if necessary, will do every single time this game is played on the ENT forum. I hate it that much. Because knowingly sending a sentient being back into a situation where they will be treated like a thing is not something I can condone. I could probably have accepted Archer's choice if he had justified it pragmatically: "Look, Trip, these guys are generations ahead of us tech-wise, and they'll blow us to hell if we don't give them what they want. It's Charles or everybody else on the ship." That he presented returning Charles as the moral alternative -- that, I couldn't stomach.

    Canamar bites the dust
    Every time I see this episode I hate it even more, and there aren't many Enterprise shows that I dislike
    The whiny guy sitting next to Trip would test anyone's patience

    Stigma is a pretty poor allegory for AIDS, and the story isn't that interesting either.

    "Judgment" is a pretty weak hour. How will we escape this terrifying and inescapable prison?!? Just walk out. The end.

    Goodbye to "The Communicator"
    A whole lot of bluster about a fucking communicator that nearly costs the lives of the Captain and Chief Security Officer
    Just fucking lock onto it and beam it up, who cares who sees it happen ?

    Hope no-one minds taking out The Seventh. I know showrunners were going for (more T'Pol-coz-she's-obvious-fanfave) and performances are good but so wasted in a really dull story

    "FUTURE TENSE" has no future. I hated everything about the Temporal Cold War, despite this episode having the Tholians and an obvious DOCTOR WHO nod.
