    This is a twist on a game that is played here, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am very curious to see the results.

    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, wait six hours and 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!

    This is a REALLY tough season to choose episodes from. With only a couple exceptions, I loved the entire season. So trying to pick my first save is difficult.

    I will start with "IN A MIRROR, DARKLY". I LOVED this from start to finish. And the best part? DIFFERENT THEME SONG!!! Seeing how the Agony Booth was devised, Forrest being back (And he isn't all THAT different, just more of a hardass.), seeing a Constitution class ship again, the Tholians and their base... this was just an amazing episode, with a great second part to the story.

    I really wish I could save both parts in one shot, but if no one saves the second part, that will definitely be my next save.

    Like I said in the "Least Disliked" contest, this is going to be a tough season to eliminate episodes from, due to how tightly interconnected many of them are. I'll make Terra Prime my first save, as it was a far more fitting wrap-up to the series than... you know...

    I am going to pull HOME out... Outstanding episode and great personal exploration for Archer. This season really stands out among any season in ALL of Trek...

    So many good ones to save! Amongst the remaining, it's a tough call between IAMD2 and Demons, but I think I'll have to go with the second part of the Mirror University duology.

    I am saving the OBSERVER EFFECT. It was kinda funny to hear Archer talk about empathy when the shoe's on the other foot. It's a shame he didn't feel a little of that empathy when millions of Valakians were dying, some of them in front of his eyes.

    I'm saving BORDERLAND as it works really well as a nice reboot for the rest of the show.

    My next save will be "COLD STATION 12". I loved the Augments trilogy, and all parts were going to be my next save after "IN A MIRROR, DARKLY".

    Saving THE FORGE as it's a start of another solid trilogy and we see Soval was more than just an obstinate Vulcan. Also RIP Forrest.

    I am saving "THE AUGMENTS", despite the fact they were all killed. Great episode, great ending to that trilogy. Loved the Khan homage with Malik at the end, and loved how we see Arik Soong go from augmenting humans to cybernetic work, and his final line of it taking a couple generations to finish the work.

    I'll take out Demons. Not as strong as the second half, but still a worthy outing.

    I am saving BOUND. After having been told about Orion girls for years and only catching glimpses at them. It was nice to have an entire episode about them, though it wouldn't have hurt if that episode were a little better.

    United. I loved seeing the seeds for the Federation being planted. Also, adding back Bound since it had been less than six hours since Discofan's previous vote, thus making that ineligible.

    I'll take out Babel One, as it's the last remaining part of what, to me, is the strongest story still to have any episodes in the running.

    So to sum up: We're left with Alien Nazis, Two-thirds of the Vulcan story, the transporter story, the Klingon story, and the infamous series finale...

    I'll save Kir'Shara next, the conclusion of the Vulcan Reformation Arc. While the story as a whole wasn't as exciting as I hoped, I really appreciated what they were going for with it.

    I will save "DIVERGENCE". I enjoyed the episode, and liked that they were explaining the Klingon forehead issue. I saved the second part first because I really loved how they did the sequence with both NX class ships.

    If no one saves "AFFLICTION" before my six hours are up, that will be my next, and very likely last, save for the final season of the game.

    I know it's probably too late to do anything about this, but should we really be posting things like "I'm going to save Episode X, and assuming no-one saves it first, Episode Y will be my next save?"

    Just worried it might cause people to vote more tactically - someone who is now eligible to vote and initially intends to save Affliction might end up thinking "Right, no need to worry about that episode, it's probably safe from the final two," and instead eliminate, for instance, Awakening or one of the Storm Front episodes.
