    "Mortal Coil" - I love the Neelix episodes. I love that this episode explores Neelix's beliefs and the strength they've given him. He's had a pretty hard life.

    I'm starting to sound like Towelie, but:

    DS9 Season 6: "One Little Ship"​

    is another high-concept ride. The Treknobabble isn't too excessive, and check the brain at the door with the hat and some fun awaits, because you know they will win in the end. Wouldn't it be neat if they lost and remained shrunken?

    Towelie! That's the first time I've seen that character referenced anywhere on TrekBBS. :)

    I recently rewatched "Zero Hour." I'm someone generally underwhelmed by the Xindi arc, but that was a better finale than I remembered.

    I might just be so damn happy we finally got some matriarchal aliens for once in the Sphere Builders!

    Saving "FIGHT OR FLIGHT".

    When it first aired, I was glad they gave the first episode after the pilot to Hoshi, because I remember thinking, "They remembered that the Communications Officer was a key position in the era before TNG. Berman and Braga, good going!"

    A shame they didn't give her much more throughout the run, because Linda Park definitely was able to hold her own episodes.

    This one was a good mystery, and it was fun to watch the methodology of the era when going to ships, etc.

    Another one off the top! "Juggernaut" I am excited to hit this one with my Delta Flyers rewatch in two weeks, it's just satisfying.

    I'm a Malon fan (we're a rare breed, I think), and I also appreciate that they didn't overdo them. Three Malon eps and then on to the next. A perfect portion.

    Since I love alliteration, I will call you a fan of 'Malon Morsels'. (My only quibble with "JUGGERNAUT" was that they should NOT have aired that one so late in the season, since the other two Malon episodes took place about 30,000 light years before. There is no chance in hell their territory is THAT big.)

    My next save is "BOUND". I may be in the minority, but I really liked this one. I love the twist of the Orion slave girls being the real masters. It oddly makes perfect sense... in S&M, with the relationship between master and slave, the slave actually holds the power because they allow themselves to be submitted, and they set the boundaries.

    Workforce, Part I an interesting premise with a good execution. Also, this two-parter, for me, has the distinction of having one of very few believable romance of the week plots.

    The Expanse was a wide-ranging change for ENT's storytelling. Not a bad episode that effectively served as the series's second pilot.

    Saving "ROGUE PLANET".

    Interesting premise, and one of the extremely few times we go on a rogue planet in the franchise.

    And were down to the dregs. Shockwave , Part I featured the nonsensical TCW, but the setup towards the cliffhanger made it a decent episode.

    Oh my god burn them all.

    Well, four of these are among the worst Trek ever produced, and one of them is just extremely terrible. So I'll save that one: "Canamar."

    I'll go with Storm Front. Part I, which to entertain at all, you have to turn your brain off.

    My final vote for this game. Ugh, the choices.

    I hate the TCW, and I'm sure my feelings about the ENTERPRISE finale have been made clear.

    I am forced to save "FAIR HAVEN". At least it dealt with a real issue for Janeway.

    The episode might be bad, but it has one of Janeway's more iconic lines - "Delete the wife." :D

    I will take the final elimination and save "Shockwave, Part II", which at least ends the TCM, Trek's worst recurring story arc. It ends it the stupidest and most unsatisfying possible way, but still, it ends it.

    Honestly, TATV deserves the win for the sin of killing Trip alone, and that's before you even get into everything else wrong with this dreary hour. I distinctly remember coming back to watch it's original air, after abandoning Enterprise mid-season 2, and thinking to myself: thank God I bailed! Not only did this show never get any better, it actually got so much worse!

    TATV is so horrible, it made me think Trek was better off dead than alive. So glad we've gotten past it to the current renaissance.
