Would "Sacrifice of Angels" be too cliche?

I think the most memorable episode for me growing up was Blood Oath from season 2 of DS9. It was one of the first episodes of any Trek that I ever watched live and it was great, had great drama, great action, great performances, badass Klingons, Dax. I think it was one of the episodes that helped cement me as a life-long Trek fan.

Q Who?

Lockboxes... resistance is futile.

In my mind, "Demons" and "Terra Prime" are the series finale. Enterprise just followed up its awesome finale with a weird epilogue about Riker and Troi playing around on the holodeck, that's all.

There's too many for me to pick, and they'd be the usual choices like "The Inner Light," "City on the Edge of Forever" and "The Visitor," but "Best of Both Worlds" really was an amazing achievement as a two-part episode. It has a more epic scope than many of the Trek movies, and it worked the Borg (who were already memorably unsettling in "Q Who?") into such awe-inspiring villains that even twenty years, six movies and three more TV series later they're still towering over the list. I'm just really glad I only saw those episodes after the fact and didn't have to wait three agonizing months after "Mr. Worf, fire."

That's one thing I really respect about "Tuvix." It would have been so predictable to have the episode take the easy way out with Tuvix nobly sacrificing himself at the end (which is pretty much what Enterprise did with its own take on the situation later, in "Similitude"), but the writers didn't do that. They pitted his wanting to live against the crew wanting Tuvok and Neelix back all the way to the end. Voyager sometimes played it a little safe with its morality stories, but this was one episode where they didn't hold any punches.

It was always interesting seeing the giant nothing that we got after Riker said that.... It's a giant anti-climax.... and AWESOME!

I have a few
Too short a season
Datalore
The Doomsday device
The name I forget, but the TOS one where the computer controls the ship
Hopefully I'll come back from my break; this break is fun; I play intellectual games.

I hope STO get's better ...
