    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 start season 3 by saving "TWILIGHT". Very well acted, great premise, and so many heartbreaking scenes. Easily one of the best of the season.

    Damage. I know some hate it’s moral message, but I’m glad of any Trek episode in this era that acknowledges there’s not always some magical solution that can make everybody happy.

    Azati Prime is a pretty awesome episode, and a good cliffhanger.

    SIMILITUDE won an Emmy for the music composition and it is well earned. My respect to Velton Ray Bunch. An excellent choise! Similitude is a great episode for so many aspects.

    I am saving "PROVING GROUND", if only for the Archer-Shran interaction. The special effects are nice too.

    "THE FORGOTTEN" had some great Trip scenes, particularly about him dealing with his sister's death. And his hatred of Degra is not only completely understandable, but well executed.

    "Carpenter Street." I stumbled upon this episode in recent years and liked it so much I was inspired to go back and fully watch Enterprise for the first time. I love their version of "Detroit", and T'Pol's persistent skepticism about time travel even as they actually time travel.

    Saving STRATAGEM, the scenario is cribbed from Mission Impossible but it's nicely done.

    Zero Hour, as it’s a very solid conclusion to the season that I think unfairly has a bad reputation due to THAT final scene.

    "THE XINDI" gets saved, as it was the first time we are shown the 5 species of Xindi, a really great concept.

    I find "The Shipment" a very strong episode, featuring great world-building on the Xindi.

    I'll save IMPULSE for the zombie Vulcans, a novel concept at the time.

    ANOMALY asks a very important ethic question: " How far can you go to save everything you used to know and love?" Quantum jump moment of Archer's character development. Just perfect!

    "THE COUNCIL" gets saved because of a lot of great scenes, and really pushed forward the last part of the arc.

    Maybe it was the power of diminished expectations, as I only recently saw it for the first time and knew it was hated going in, but I was surprised to actually enjoy "Rajiin." It's the right kind of ridiculous. They got the tone just right to make it all land.

    And I actually really dislike these 6 remaining. They all turn me off, but each one in such a different way!

    North Star wasn’t that great of a story, but at least the setting was something different for the show, and was realized quite well too.
