    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'll get the ball rolling by saving "MINEFIELD". Not only is it a good, tense episode from start to finish, but it was a good Reed showcase. Always been a favorite episode of season 2.

    I wonder if this is my least favorite season of any Star Trek show ever produced. I think it might be, nothing worse is coming to mind.

    But I do like "Regeneration"! It has it's share of eye-rolling moments -- continuity is saved by the Borg skipping their classic "We are the Borg" intro line for the first time ever! Phlox cures assimilation! -- but on the whole they made it work. That "The Thing" style opening is a blast.

    I always hated that the Borg, like the Ferengi, were used in this show.

    But the one good thing about this series' use of the Borg was that they made them scary again. Given how they were neutered in VOYAGER, quite an accomplishment.

    The Expanse, for being the point where Enterprise started to be something more than just a bunch of people wandering around aimlessly on the frontier.

    "DEAD STOP" is next for me. Great premise with the horror vibe, and great execution with Roxann Dawson directing. Back to back great episodes with this and "MINEFIELD". Loved them both.

    I'll save Cogentor, which is one of the strongest episodes this season. I love Trip's staunch defence of the Cogenitor, and the sad outcome of everything that goes down. Andreas Katsulus was also very good in one of his last roles.

    God, there's a handful on this list I would deem "fine" and the rest I actively dislike. It's already hard to find anything worthy of saving!

    I'll go with "The Crossing." I always find something to enjoy in a Trek possession ep. It's an inherently satisfying trope.

    Saving "SINGULARITY" next. I liked the idea, and the music and atmosphere gave the episode a creepy, horror vibe. I have a soft spot for that.

    I will pick FUTURE TENSE from the list. I love many elements of FT like Dr. Who inspiration, naming continuity, mixed heritage of pilot, Zefram Cochrane...

    "Stigma" is kind of interesting! Sigh. That's really the highest praise I have for any of these 16 remaining episodes. "Kind of interesting."

    Cease Fire, as it was nice to see Suzie Plakson and Christopher Shea back, plus it managed to give us something more balanced than the inexplicable “Vulcans bad, Andorians good” thing the writers seemed obsessed with pushing in the previous season.

    I thought The Seventh was pretty good, as it presented some interesting information about T'Pol's past. I wish they hadn't copped out at the end though.

    Only T'Pol's pajamas are good enough to pick SHOCKWAVE, PART II , but her speech is also great. Shirtless Hoshi was a little bit cringey, they could do it better. How they bring Archer back was also funny.

    I pick Precious Cargo as one of the worst season 2 episodes of Enterprise.The Princess character is really unlikeable.

    So, you should keep it, since we are trying to find "the" most disliked episode of second season. Precious Cargo is really really bad, imho.

    The Catwalk had some amusing scenes with the crew all crammed together. Yeah, I’m kinda struggling for good points too.

    I love the homage to TUC in Judgment. It's not the best episode but there are some good bits throughout.
