    I like Spock's Brain. I have no delusion that it's a classic of sci fi writing, or thought provoking drama. But I think it's pure campy fun.

  • I really like Errand of Mercy and Shore Leave.

    My underrated episodes that I like are "Whom Gods Destroy" and "Bread & Circuses"

    For me, I think The Enterprise Incident is my overall favourite TOS episode.

    City of the Edge of Forever and Amok Time are also good.
    After that,other episodes in my top 10 would probably include:
    The Doomsday Machine
    Bread and Circuses
    Journey to Babel
    Assignment: Earth
    Elaan of Troyius
    Day of the Dove

    Patterns of Force - it was first aired in Germany on free tv in 2011 (!) (pay tv first aired it 1999) and released in 1996 on VHS. Before these dates the episode was considered as "banned" even it wasn't banned in a legal sense, everybody was afraid to air or release it. The episode itself isn't that good but the story behind it in Germany is interesting and made it interesting as a forbidden episode.

    Due to our history this episode was a huge controversy and heavily discussed, even it took her so long before it was released and aired. Probably roughly comparable to the Kirk-Uhura kissing episode in the US.

    Top ten, in the order I find them in the episode list

    'The Corbomite Maneuver'
    'Balance of Terror'
    'Space Seed'
    'A Taste of Armageddon'
    'Errand of Mercy'
    'The Changeling'
    'The Doomsday Machine'
    'The Trouble with Tribbles'
    'The Enterprise Incident'
    'Requiem for Methuselah'

    And my oddball choice, 'Wink of an Eye' - a lot of it doesn't make much sense, that's true, but I feel the atmosphere they were trying to convey.
  • I'm going to intentionally rule these out of my top 10 since I feel like they have a good chance at being in MOST top 10s:

    The City on the Edge of Forever
    Mirror, Mirror
    Space Seed
    The Trouble With Tribbles
    The Doomsday Machine
    Balance of Terror
    The Enterprise Incident

    My top 10 AFTER these:

    The Enemy Within
    Operation: Annihilate!
    Errand of Mercy
    Assignment: Earth
    Patterns of Force
    Day of the Dove
    I, Mudd
    The Naked Time
    The Devil in the Dark
  • In no particular order:

    Space Seed
    The Squire Of Gothos
    The Tholian Web
    Assignment: Earth
    Mirror, Mirror
    Return Of The Archons
    The City On The Edge Of Forever
    The Man Trap
