    So "Raijin" loses... can't say I really remember it. And Enterprise rumbles further ahead in this... race of suckiness. Remember when VOY was decisively in the lead with four wins? It's either rallied or fizzled out, depending on how you interpret things.

    Still think the next one should be "titles with five letters or less". Maybe six. Call it "short and sweet" or something.

    No, nor spaces either. Of course, I just realized we'd be reusing all the Q ones immediately. So I actually retract my last, but I hope we'll do "five letters or less" at some point.

    I actually like "Rajiin"! Something I can't say for any of the other episodes to have become multiple winners.

    But, it is trash, I can't argue that. I just think it's fun trash. :biggrin:

    This also makes THREE Enterprise episodes to have become double-winners, along with "Shockwave, Part II" and "Storm Front, Part I." No other series has more than one double/triple winner.

    All ideas will be done eventually. :) While doing this one we also generated "Episodes Named For Ships" and "Episodes Named For Places."

    But none of them will be next! :bolian: Next is "The Most Disliked Bajoran Episode" that I've mentioned a few times but have at last resolved, after quite a bit of rewatching of the marginal cases. Hope to see you all there!

    I expect DS9 is probably going to gain a step in the race, since it's got most of the DS9 episodes.

    Yes, it will be almost impossible for anything other than DS9 to win. I planned it to be one of a few DS9 specific lists to run it that forum eventually, then it had just enough from TNG & VOY to run it here...

    When you consider that three of DS9's wins came from one really bad episode, it's actually kind of impressive. A great series, that happened to serve up a real stinker.
