    I always loved 'The Man Trap'. DeForest Kelley was so great!

    I've always liked 'The Cloud Miners' from the original series. The Federation needs the mineral Zenite. The Enterprise travels to a planet where there are two societies. The worker miners and the upper class who live in a city in the clouds. The miners do the all the work and receive none of the benefits. Kirk and Spock have to intercede to make things right.

    My sister and I were terrified by kids of the "toast and jam"- these things like bats but they were like, well, burnt toast and jam! The episode where Kirk fights the Gorn is a favourite... But the best was the series pilot.

    Where No Man Has Gone Before and Corbomite Maneuver are two of my favorites based on the number of times I've seen them. Most of the first season is outstanding.

    I've only just discovered these posts!! - Woking my way through the blu ray of Star Trek TOS at the moment. Yes Mr Fibuli The Man trap was very good. Will wait until I've watched more before stating a favourite though!

    Cue theremin and aria.

    That joke sucked(salt)

    Favorite episode; Let that be your last Battlefield. I think it's quite telling of Mr. Roddenberry's genius that I must have been all of 9 or 10 years old (r
    syndication , we didn't get NBC where we lived) when I first saw this and I "got it "

    TOS: "Balance of Terror." No question. Great acting, great writing, great tension through the whole way.
    TNG: "Darmok." This is what Star Trek is, could be, and should be.
    DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight." One of the few truly great DS9 episodes.
    VOY: "Equinox." How far would you go to go home?
    Enterprise: "Augments." A plausible interlude for Khan-esque augmented humans and a link in to how TOS Klingons had smooth heads.
