    Removing The Expanse because it’s the only one left I’d rate below an 8 or so.

    Removing "What You Leave Behind". Opens with some of the worst dialogue in the franchise ("I've never been into battle with someone I've slept with before" and the like), meanders along and finishes with the fantasy guff which plagued S7.

    "Equinox." Such a great premise, flops in execution. And the actual cliffhanger moment is so weak.

    “Broken Link” is next. I actually really like the episode, but it’s hampered by the fact that Odo eventually regains his shapeshifting ability.

    The Adversary is out. Not a bad episode, just not as good as what's left.

    This is going to be unexpected, but I am eliminating "All Good Things...".

    All episodes remaining are excellent, and although this one is too, it is a SERIES finale. I have to take it out based on this being a SEASON finale list.


    TNG, Season 3: "The Best Of Both Worlds, Part I"
    DS9, Season 2: "The Jem'Hadar"
    DS9, Season 5: "Call To Arms"

    Call To Arms is a great episode, has too many amazing scenes but as always over acting of Avery Brooks makes it a caricature of what it should be.

    So we have
    TNG, Season 3: "The Best Of Both Worlds, Part I"

    That's coming right after the "8th Most Liked Redshirt Who Was Killed in an Episode That Aired in an Even Numbered Month But an Odd Numbered Produced Episode Not Directed By a Main Cast Actor Or David Livingston, Winrich Kolbe, Mike Vejar, or James L. Conway".

    No one is forcing you to post there.

    One thing that is missing is a "dislike" feature.

    A little humor, Discofan. Just trying to give some humor.

    As Chekov once said, "It was a little joke."
