    It is a great episode. It was the first one I ever saw. I was six or seven years old and Balok (the puppet) scared the heck out of me. Then the "real" Balok scared me even more! :eek: That little bastard still creeps me out!

    Top 1-5, no particular order:

    Balance of Terror
    The City on the Edge of Forever
    Amok Time
    The Doomsday Machine
    Journey to Babel


    Top 6-10, no particular order:

    The Changeling
    I, Mudd
    The Trouble with Tribbles
    A Piece of the Action
    The Ultimate Computer


    So, after several edits I finally settle on this. :P

    As you can see, I have a thing for space battles, character drama, and comedy stuff. The dominance of Season 2 was not intended here, but just happened to happen.

    This is incredibly difficult - but, here goes:

    1. The Doomsday Machine
    2. The Enterprise Incident
    3. The Tholian Web
    4. The Corbomite Maneuver
    5. City on the Edge of Forever
    6. Shore Leave
    7. The Ultimate Computer
    8. Devil in the Dark
    9. The Trouble With Tribbles
    10. Amok Time

    After reviewing this list, I realized I have an affinity for episodes in which other Federation starships are depicted. (I almost listed The Omega Glory).

    I've been reading them. It's interesting to see what other people's tastes are--even if the same titles tend to keep popping up over and over again.

    Whenever we do these kind of lists, I like when the lesser-known episodes come up, like Conscience of a King and Shore Leave. You've got your classic episodes, sure, but when you get to the very good episodes that don't get mentioned that much, it's nice to see the different tastes people have.

    I love conscience of the king. it's definitely in my top 10 :)

    Did you know the Astral Queen from battlestar galactica (remake series) was named after the Astral Queen from conscience of the king? I'm glad that such a high profile series paid tribute to that TOS episode :)... even though i'm not really a fan of BSG..

    Astral Queen is just a really cool name for a ship
