    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 episodes from DS9, VOY, and ENT directed by Allan Kroeker -- Trek's fifth most prolific director!

    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 having the director credits literally memorized.

    Enjoy!

    "The Ascent" is a real triumph of direction. They did such a good job of shooting the alien planet, it feels way less like California than usual.

    And maybe the only episode from the Odo-as-human arc that did anything meaningful with Odo being a human?

    A Time to Stand is the epic open to season six, and it's all a bit grim for poor Julian.

    There is also the great dialogue involving Quark, Kira and Odo, where he says that as occupations go, it's not bad.

    Bride of Chaotica! because it's legitimately hilarious; because the photonic aliens are cool; and because Janeway is the queen.

    Saving "CHILDREN OF TIME". Because no one else saved them in the end.

    (Joking aside, a quiet episode that had a LOT going on. Future Odo's actions are still hotly debated today.)

    I think Azati Prime was a pretty pulsating episode, with a hair-raising cliffhanger, too. This episode, along with Damage, is probably the high point of ENT's Xindi arc, for me.

    I keep taking DS9's off the top... "The Assignment" is the best showcase for Rosalind Chao in either TNG or DS9, and one of Trek's great possession eps, a trope I love.

    God, I seriously need to rewatch "Damage",
    especially now that Una has been revealed to be the same type of alien as these guys.
    I think I've only seen it once to date.

    What You Leave Behind is such a sweeping end to DS9. It's very bittersweet, so I can overlook certain things about it that aren't so great.

    DS9 Season 6: "His Way"
    DS9 Season 6: "Time's Orphan"
    DS9 Season 6: "Tears of the Prophets"
    DS9 Season 7: "Shadows and Symbols"

    My first pick is a ribbeting experience:

    DS9 Season 6: "Time's Orphan"​

    Definitely a high concept piece, which sometimes aims into the "moral" aspects a tad needlessly*, but putting those to the side and rolling with the concept - it's well-written and most certainly well-deirected, packing emotional punches that were needed at the right times.

    * well, without the obligatory Treklosophy, just as without the Treknobabble, it wouldn't be as good. The Treklosophy has been done better before in high-concept scripts, but that's on the script and many elements can improve on that. The core of the script with its ideas are also relatively unexplored as well so any nitpicks I have are minimal. I still adore this 44 minutes of Obrienhell, a dumb term just coined to explain the number of episodes where they put the O'Brien family through it and back to tell stories that that just wouldn't work as well with anyone else.

    "Before and After" - the idea of the Ocampa having such short lives was a really interesting idea and it played out well in this episode.

    Last one before bed. Shadows and Symbols is a suitably somber opening to the final season, after everything that happened in Tears of the Prophets. I love Senator Cretak in this two-parter, it's just a shame she turned out to be scheming.

    "Tears Of The Prophets" I like that they went into the final season on such a defeated note. Bold choice.

    Is it Trek's most defeated season finale moment? (Maybe "Basics"?) Every other cliffhanger, they might be in a terrible situation, but they still have a lot of fight in them and they're moving on to the next plan. This one, it all just seems lost at the end.

    Saving "MEMORIAL". Great concept, and everyone played the trauma really, really well. Especially Beltran, Wang, McNeill, and Phillips.

    A very (wait for it)...
