    Next up in these themed elimination games: the Least Disliked Holodeck Episode!

    THE RULES. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. Below is a list of holodeck episodes from TAS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT. 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.

    And finally, much thanks to @Farscape One for vetting the list with me! It was a fun tour through every Trek holographic angle: do alien simulations count, do Doctor episodes count, do rogue hologram episodes count, etc., before the sudden epiphany to just keep it simple and do straight-up Federation holodeck (or Quark holosuite) eps.
    Enjoy! :beer:

    And I'll kick it off with axing "Twisted." I didn't even really realize it was a holodeck episode until I rewatched it for this list! But Sandrine's is all over this ep, it becomes their home base, the climax is set there, and the bar characters are played heavily. And beyond that, you can see the outlines of how they're trying to get it all to connect with the jealous Sandrine's bar action paralleling the whole Kes/Neelix/Paris story, and of course they're having these personal problems because their perception of the other person's motivations are... (sigh) twisted.

    It's trying to be a holodeck episode, it's just done in such a dreary, lifeless way I never noticed till just now!

    Cost of Living, it's an awful episode in many ways but I'll concentrate in the holodeck parts, a mudbath, some weirdo artists and a head in a bubble and in between all lf that Majel Barrett trying her best (and failing but I don't blame her) to make it look fun.
    And who thought pairing Lwaxana and Alexander would be entertaining ...

    I'll do everyone a favour and remove These Are The Voyages. It's pretty terrible really, with Riker and Troi stealing ENT's thunder in its finale. Also, choosing to sync the episode with The Pegasus was odd, and thematically just doesn't work.

    "SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME" gets the axe. Basically because I don't feel this episode is 'holodeck' enough to be on this list.

    I'm removing A Matter of Perspective: it really doesn't qualify as a holodeck-specific episode, IMO. It is merely the best modeling tool available to the crew at the time. If it is a holodeck episode, DS9's Rapture would need to be considered as well. (ETA: as would Identity Crisis.)

    "Identity Crisis" and "RAPTURE"... yes, they used the holodeck as tools, but it did not take place there nearly as much as "A Matter of Perspective". I thought about this as we went over the list.

    Fair point. Just to explain the reasoning, in this case it was a question of degree. In "Rapture" and "Identity Crisis", the holodeck is used briefly, whereas in "Matter Of Perspective", they spend a huge chunk of the episode sitting there watching holographic recreations. The holodeck felt to us like a primary setting for "Perspective", in a way it didn't for the other two.

    (Just to be clear, this is not a criticism of the elimination. "This doesn't feel to me like it belongs here" is ALWAYS acceptable elimination criteria :bolian:)

    His Way is out, it bored me to death and I was never a fan of the Odo/Kira pairing.

    I feel like I come for these contests just to eliminate Spirit Folk every time it pops up. But it won't die! ;)

    It's a stupid idea to keep it running all the time when they have limited resources, Harry turns into a cow, the crew bleat on about this dreary holodeck program like it's something to treasure, whilst in reality it's just stereotypically stupid and somewhat racist.

    I think there should be a Least Disliked Offensive Sterotype Epiosde at some point Sakonna. :techman:

    I am removing DS9 Season 7: “Take Me Out To The Holosuite” because it's just a stupid story about Sisko behaving like a five-year-old and everyone going along with it. The top was the ending when they pretended that they won the match. I can't imagine a real team acting like that. They would shame their most ardent supporters and be the laughing stock of the sporting world. Being a bad loser is way worse than just being a loser. I was a hundred percent with the Vulcan guy on that one! Sportsmanship means you lose with grace and concede defeat with dignity, dust yourself up and try to do better next time! This episode is an insult to sports and the people who practice them, everywhere.

    You have NO IDEA how many times this has run-through my mind. Then I get afraid of the thread exploding. But, it is a tempting idea... I think as long as it stays in "Least Disliked", it could work. That's one list you'd never want to reverse and do the "MOST Disliked" version of, where you're inviting people to save episodes and explain why they love "Code Of Honor" the most... (though I myself have complicated feelings about a lot of these... but I digress, that's an essay for another day) :bolian:

    I am going to eliminate lone TAS entry "Practical Joker." I feel like I'm starting to appreciate some things about TAS for the first time, but this ep just grates on me.

    I will say, as I added it to the list, I did enjoy recalling the many, many times on this board that I have read some version of "Discovery's holographic technology isn't a continuity error, they had a holodeck on TAS!" :)

    Emergence, the Enterprise becomes sentient, makes itself a baby in the holodeck and someone got paid for that script ...

    VOY Season 2: "Persistence Of Vision" because Janeway's holodeck program is terrible.

    Taking out "AUTHOR, AUTHOR". TNG did rights issues better with "The Measure Of A Man".

    Removing Badda Bing. Because Vic Fontaine is a bad character whose only redeeming episode is Paper Moon.

    I did like Dixon Hill, but I'll get rid of Manhunt for the annoying Lwaxana Troi parts of the episode, which is quite a lot.
