    Most of mine come from season one:

    The Corbomite Maneuver
    The Menagerie
    Balance of Terror
    Shore Leave
    Arena
    Tomorrow is Yesterday
    Space Seed
    The Devil in the Dark

    And I'll round out with:

    The Doomsday Machine (S2)
    The Savage Curtain (S3)

    I notice others are including "The Cage" in their season one picks. While it's my favorite episode of trek ever, It was a pilot, not aired uncut during any regular season, and I'm just old fashioned enough to make my picks accordingly.

    But if I take out the Cage I can't pick between Space Seed, the Trouble with Tribbles, the Enemy Within, the Tholian Web, Journey to Babel , and the Immunity Syndrome. It has to stay!

    Hey, that's fine. I don't want cause anybody any angst. I'm only stating why I'm not including the episode. Cause, let's face it: if I included The Cage, I wouldn't have a list, because as far as I'm concerned, THE CAGE IS TREK! EVERYTHING ELSE IS DERIVATIVE!

    :shrug: The statements are self-explanatory.

    First, yeah, my favorite episode of trek ever is The Cage. Period. End of discussion. it has my favorite characters and favorite story. I can't state it any more plainly. What, is it confusing because I'm not bowing at the altar of "City On The Edge Of Forever" or something? Sorry, I don't do that.

    Second, look up the word "derivative." Everything in Trek's DNA, all the stuff that distinguishes trek from the other space franchises, the transporters, the warping, the "one ship, one crew," the "guy with the ears," - the source for all of it is The Cage, which makes The Cage the original work and everything else derivative of that original work.

    Of course, The Cage is derivative of Forbiidden Planet, which in turn is just the sci-fi version of The Tempest, but its place in the Lineage of Trek is always "First," and I'm down with that.

    The Cage stands up as an amazing piece of sci fi in its own right.
