    Imaginary Friend (TNG). I know this one annoys some people but I have memories of it being one of the first TNG episodes I saw when I was about 11-12 so I'm fond of it.

    "EMPOK NOR" is saved because I love the creepy vibe and atmosphere.

    As a horror fan, I appreciate this one more than most. And NO episode that has Garak in it deserves to be the winner of any 'Most Disliked Episode' list.

    (Unless it IS a list of just his appearances. Hint, hint. ;);))

    Empok Nor isn't very subtle, but it's fun seeing crazy Garak here. I love how the sister-station of is at an angle to make it seem totally different

    Ninja'd, so I'll go with Apocalypse Rising. Martok being the real shapeshifter was a less interesting twist to take than Gorwron, but at least he popped back up again later. The latest saga in the Klingon War was interesting though, particularly seeing O'Brien, Sisko and Odo in disguise is worth admission alone.

    Oh, nearly forgot Odo's root beer speech when he was having a break, and seeing him coming to terms with the fallout of his murder of a changeling was good stuff.

    It's a bad news episode for anyone who doesn't like Troi's Mum or Alexander and a shitshow for anyone who can't stand either, but fortunately for me... I quite like both characters. So I'm saving Cost of Living (TNG).

    TNG: "New Ground"
    TNG: "Violations"
    TNG: "The Masterpiece Society"

    DS9: "The Begotten"
    DS9: "Ferengi Love Songs"
    VOY: "Latent Image"
    VOY: "Gravity"
    VOY: "The Disease"
    VOY: "Course: Oblivion"
    VOY: "The Fight"
    VOY: "Think Tank"
    VOY: "Juggernaut"
    VOY: "Warhead"

    I'm probably going to kick Gravity (VOY) or Think Tank (VOY) out if I get another vote.

    How is "COURSE: OBLIVION" still on here? No longer!

    This might be the darkest ending of an episode in the franchise. They literally all end up gone... and unremembered. I always wanted to see an episode where the real crew encounter people who the duplicates helped or otherwise encountered.

    Juggernaut because Fesek somehow managed to make me feel sympathetic towards the Melon. Plus, the episode has a very enjoyable creepy atmosphere.

    So it's Gravity (VOY). An offbeat showcase for Tuvok, my favourite Vulcan of all time.

    Saving "THE BEGOTTEN".

    A touching episode, and I truly feel Bashireling was the one who orchestrated all this so Odo gets his abilities back.

    "The Disease" - it entertains me and it has the longest one shot scene in Star Trek (according to Garrant Wong).

    Latent Image is the last decent VOY episode. Despite it involving a crewmember we'd never heard of, it was an interesting little mystery about what the Doctor actually went through on that fateful night.

    Saving "The Fight" for the (quite large) number of times I've seen it. I want it to be a better episode than it is: Chakotay is my second favourite Voyager character, there's potential here for a lot of character development for him, there's some J/C inappropriate workplace touching, the chaotic space aliens are a cool idea.

    I think "New Ground" is a bit underrated. Maybe it's just listening to Michael Dorn talk about how Worf's story as a father was the most interesting thing to play for him, it's made me look more favorably on the Worf/Alexander episodes that are not "Sons & Daughters."

    I also love that ridiculous alien puppet.

    Well and truly scraping the barrel now. :D I'll go with Ferengi Love Songs because at least there were a few funny moments.

    We are now at the dregs of the season.

    Saving "LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN..." because despite it being probably the third worst episode of DS9, it DOES have a great scene with Worf explaining WHY he is the way he is.

    Of what's left, Violations is the one that offends me the least, so I'll save it. The last two I honestly consider bottom of the barrel Trek. The whole concept behind the Kriosian women makes my skin craw.

    The Masterpiece Society is a dreary affair, with an insufferable leader of the community as a guest star. It's a slightly decent episode for Troi though, with a romance, so I'll save it.

    The Perfect Mate is far from perfect. There are too many cliche Ferengi hijinks, not really getting any momentum until the love story. Even then, it's just dull, dull, dull.

    The Perfect Mate wins.

    I had predictions at the beginning on who the bottom five would be, and none of it came true.

    So much for Carnac the Magnificent...
