Something to take our minds off the insanity of the past few days.

Something almost as important as Ginger? Or Mary-Anne?

Something that must be answered...

The Greatest Star Trek (original series) episode of all time is?

Cast your votes.


Mine is: Balance of Terror.

"Amok Time" The fight scene and the music.

I was thinking about this same episode when I read the title. I went on a Star Trek TOS binge last year after Leonard Nimoy died, this episode came highly recommended.

It's interesting because it plays almost like a Submarine/Red October game of cat and mouse, with silence intermingled with the inner monologues of the opposing captains. Definitely makes for a tense atmosphere.

Another good one is The Doomsday Machine.

Aww I came in here thinking it was all Star Trek series...I never really got into TOS, just so cheesy... But trouble with tribbles seems to stick in my mind.

As for all series? (Yes I know you didn't ask!)

Hint: There. Are. Four. Lights!

Not sure it's the best but the episode that has stayed with me from childhood is The Devil in the Dark.


No Kill I.

We wouldn't have had the others without the first. It wasn't cheesy for the time or for years after. It was in syndication when I was a child and I would beg to stay up to watch it. It started my interest in aliens, science fiction, conspiracies...it had such an incredible effect on my life from an early age.

I remember my father taking me to see the first movie. One of the best memories I have. Always liked trek more than Star Wars.

Next Gen and Enterprise are my favorite of the series following. I had difficulty getting into DS9 but finally did. I still haven't watched all of Voyager.

I have written some Enterprise Trip T'Pal fan fic.

I'd forgotten Plato's Stepchildren...

I'd rate that one as a Top Ten, easily. How'd I forgot that one, I don't know...



As for Trouble with Tribbles?

TV's all-time best line:




You can almost hear the bagpipes callin' the Clans to battle...

I only watched the movies, not the series unfortunately..

I grew up with TNG, that started off pretty cheesy too to be honest, but really started to hit it's stride by the time the third series rolled round.

Loved Data..

Anyway, I'm getting off topic now, back to TOS

The movie Balance of Terror most resembles is Enemy Below, with the immortal Kurt Jurgens playing the u-boat commander.

Great, great movie.

Meh, all the Treks had something to offer. I even liked TNG once they got rid of the insufferable little brat...

"The Next Generation" is a perfect example of a primer on Political Correctness in action.
--Not to say it is all bad, just too-much-in-your-face of that sort of morality.

TV's first inter racial kiss?

Maybe on U.S. TV, but it happened in The U.K. in 1962. 6 years earlier.

www.bbc.co.uk...

And here is one from 1964.

+1 on OP.
Mark Lenard made a great Romulan.
He also played Spock's father Sarek (Vulcan) and played the Klingon commander in the opening scene of TS:TMP.

I also liked Specter of the Gun. not a fan fave but I really liked the eerie atmosphere and music. filming 'outdoor' scenes on stage usually looks fake but this time it kind of helps. I liked the zombie quality of the bad guys.

I'd have to go with three that were written by one of my favorite authors, Robert Bloch; the writer of Psycho, for those who didn't know.
Wolf in the Fold. This one remind me of the movie Fallen, where the spirit of a serial killer leaps from body to body.

Catspaw

What Are Little Girls Made of?

Spock's Brain, right?


Corbomite Maneuver is the best and my favorite.

I'm not going to pick. I can't. I'm a lifelong Trekker. "Star Trek" is in my DNA right next to my coffee gene.
