    Here we have the winners and runners up of each season:

    Season One: MIRI
    Wild Card: MUDD'S WOMEN
    Season Two: THE APPLE
    Wild Card: ASSIGNMENT: EARTH
    Season Three: AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD
    Wild Card: PLATO'S STEPCHILDREN

    So now it is time for the final part.

    *RULES*

    Give what you consider to be the best/your most favorite episode ONE point, and briefly explain WHY. Be sure to copy and paste the list with your point added. When an episode reaches 4 points, it is eliminated. Then a NEW round begins (in this thread) with the numbers restored to 0. Vote ONCE per round. And enjoy! :bolian:

    I'll give another point to "The Apple." Dodgy alien makeup aside, it's fine.

    Yeah, The Apple's problem is more that it's generic and unmemorable, rather than outright bad.

    THE APPLE - 3

    Of these, "Plato's Stepchildren" is the one that just doesn't belong for me. I basically like it, which is not true of any of the others.

    Harcourt Fenton Mudd bribed me into voting for his women.

    Another point for "Mudd's Women." I definitely like it the best out of this bunch. Yeah. the gender politics are dated, but it's still entertaining.
    :guffaw:...Can I somehow give @Spock's Barber a point, too? :techman:

    Add another to Mudd's Women. I reviewed it some time ago but of the bunch that remain (interesting options, LOL), MW is the best of them.

    I'm eliminating Mudd's Women. It's just a plodding story that hasn't aged well either. But it's still better than what is left with a few decent moments. Resetting the scores:

    Assignment: Earth, as it has some really great ideas in there, it's just the fact that it can't decide whether it wants to be its own pilot episode or an episode of TOS that really hurts it.
