    This is a twist on a game that is played here, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your most favorite or the one you deem the 'best.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode.

    No tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you feel they would threaten your preferred episode's chance to win. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

    I will get the ball rolling by saving "THE ANDORIAN INCIDENT". Jeffrey Combs can do no wrong, and it was such a treat to have him on this series. A good story, the start of a look at Andorian society, an excellent actor starting a recurring role, and great directing by Roxann Dawson. One of my favorites of season 1.

    Silent Enemy has enough good points that I can overlook the inane subplot about Reed’s favourite food.

    Apologies but I'm the guy that likes Dear Doctor, despite the dodgy science lesson. It's one of my favourites this season because of the framing device. Having Phlox narrate a letter allows him to bear his soul to the audience. I also love his chemistry with Cutler.

    "Sleeping Dogs" makes excellent use of the Klingons... a statement that could not often be made of Enterprise (or possibly could never be made about Enterprise, outside of this single episode?)

    It's a toss-up between Detained or Fallen Hero next for me. Sod it I'll save Fallen Hero. Fionnula Flanagan had another good role, being a Vulcan with a personality - a little rare this early in the show's run. I enjoyed the race against time to keep ahead of the aliens.

    Breaking the Ice was the first episode where the regulars started to feel like real characters instead of just vague stereotypes.

    Saving "BROKEN BOW". It was actually a pretty good pilot, except for one thing... the Temporal Cold War. Take that out, and it would gave been even better.

    Already getting hard to find any obvious picks here. Shockwave was an okay season finale I guess, so I’ll save it.

    Detained has some nice moments in it, as well as Dean Stockwell obviously.

    I am fighting for "FIGHT OR FLIGHT". A good Hishi episode, and it really shows from the start of the series just how important her role is... a nice callback to Uhura, because communications are a very key element.

    Somehow didn’t notice that Cold Front was still in the list. I’ll save it, as it was actually one of the better Temporal Cold War outings.

    "Vox Sola" is a gem of an episode! I feel like I'm always going on about it. It's a simple story, perfectly executed. Very satisfying.

    "SHADOWS OF P'JEM" is my next save. It was nice to see consequences of what happened before. And Shran is always a win.

    All of these episodes are merging into one. ;)

    I'll save Strange New World. I don't like the tired old premise of being infected on an alien world and acting strange. I did like the excitement from the crew about getting to go down to the planet, and their faces when they made it there.

    Saving "FORTUNATE SON". Despite it not being that good, at least we get a look at life for humans outside Starfleet, a rare occasion.

    "Unexpected" I get why everyone hates it, it's flawed but I've always liked it. And at least it stands out in this sea of blandness.
