    THE OBJECTIVE: A sudden-death elimination game in which we remove our personal favorite episodes from a themed list, until we arrive at the episode that is, if not the worst, at least the most disliked. :bolian:

    THE RULES
    : Below is a list of Bajoran episodes from TNG, DS9, and VOY.

    Eliminate/save your favorite, or the one you deem the ‘best.’
    Post something you love about the episode you are saving, and copy-and-paste the list with your choice removed.


    You can use any standard you like to judge which option is "best." You can save episodes for being widely recognized “best Trek” classics, or for idiosyncratic qualities that no one appreciates but you.

    But -- no tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you don’t think anyone else will, or because you feel it would threaten your preferred episode's chance to “win.”

    You can take multiple turns. Leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode.

    New players are always welcome, you do not have to already be a "most disliked game" regular to dive in.

    Much thanks to @Farscape One for helping me vet the list!

    Enjoy!

    The Bajorans are one of those aliens that are so deeply woven into the fabric of the Trekverse at this point, it becomes tricky to draw the line on what counts as a Bajoran episode. Like with the Cardassian episode list when it was first created a few years ago, hashing this one out was particularly challenging. Hopefully the final result feels right to everyone. :bolian:
    :beer:

    I am first going to save "In The Hands Of The Prophets." It is so hard for me to really love a non-cliffhanger Berman Trek finale, but I love this one! A perfect capstone io the season, and a fantastic introduction to Winn (and Bareil).

    I don't know where to start. :D

    So Duet is a huge episode for Kira, so that can be my first pick. She goes from being out for Cardassian blood, and she has someone who has confessed to war crimes. An open and shut case, obviously.

    She comes to learn the actual truth of the event and finds herself sympathising with the man who couldn't bring himself to be associated with Marritza.

    Of course, the end, where Darheel is murdered by the Bajoran is so brutal.

    This is difficult as there are so many good episodes, but I'm going with one that delves into Bajoran mythology/prophecy and is on the fun side (rather then one of the occupation horrors), DS9: "Destiny". I love the different interpretations of the prophecy, the original "Vipers" (before that silithium comet stole the title), and Kira's belief/faith.

    "Accession" is a longtime fave of mine, one of the most pivotal episodes in Sisko's journey. Kira's struggle with her faith versus her total lack of ability or inclination to follow her d'jarra is also great, and I like how Keiko understands her husband's needs better than he does. One of DS9's most underrated efforts, I think.

    I love Rapture, for Sisko's chilling warning about the upcoming locusts when Bajor is supposed to be joining the Federation.

    Always in my top tier:

    TNG Season 5: "Ensign Ro"​

    Ro is refreshingly different and Guinan reminds, yet again, that she's far more advanced than the enlightened clique on the bridge.



    Ro clearly has a concience as she is showing remorse over her involvement in the deaths of the crew, no matter how indirect. And then there's Guinan.

    Ro spills the beans? And with 90s hair that makes her hairlicopter do more interesting.


    Now imagine 3 years of Ro with that 'do. She could easily act around it and make it that much more dignified where anyone fresh out of acting school would likely get carried away by it, and probably would make "ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-whirrrrrr" noises between outtakes too, though it'd be saddening if anyone hadn't. For more on that 90s hair, check out Hercule Platini from the Red Dwarf episode "Holoship". Hmmm, someone with that hairdo always ends up in a classic episode of said series they're in...

    "Preemptive Strike" - Ro is an interesting and complex character and she and Picard fail to communicate well in this episode and it reminded me of Star Trek VI where Spock and Valeris fail to communicate well. This episode makes me quite emotional.

    Saving "CALL TO ARMS".

    The best season finale in the franchise to date. Yes, better than "SCORPION". Yes, better than any of the current shows... even SNW's season 1 finale, which was fantastic.

    And yes... better than "The Best of Both Worlds".

    I'll go with my old faithful, Necessary Evil. I love the noir style of the episode, Odo's discovering that Kira was the killer, and also seeing the station under Cardassian rule.

    Also, one of Rom's funniest lines is when he is being considered a suspect, "I finally inherit the bar, and I'm falsely accused of his murder!" :lol:

    "Fascination" is always uplifting. Such a fun, silly lark of an episode, grounded by a great subplot with the O'Brien's.

    Blind ghosts with clothes are cool!

    TNG Season 5: "The Next Phase"​

    The acting's pretty solid, especially for such a high-concept episode.

    Romulan treachery is back - yay!

    The incidental music is so completely refreshing, adding much to the presentation rather than detracting from it. It's quite a change from the latter-half of the show's run.

    The episode starts out with a bang, and then we end up with something even more bizarre:



    We never really found out what Riker said (boo!):



    The obligatory Data moment that's actually quite good:



    The fact they mention not having eaten for 2 decades or whatever makes ya wonder what else they weren't able to do thanks to the phasing stuff...:

    (But, yeah, this is better than Neelix's "Mortal Coil" moment...)





    Also, there's that little-mentioned deleted scene:

    DS9 “Progress” is one of my favorite offerings from that first year. It’s a great Kira story, and a beautiful little character piece that is too often overlooked.

    If "The Homecoming" was a great start to Trek's first three-part episode, "The Siege" was a rip-roaring finish: complete with space battles, station subterfuge, and sneaky Odo tricks.
