Listen up you Star Trek snowflakes, there can only be 10 episodes in the Top Ten Episodes. Now I don't agree with the Mojo list, and clearly most commenting don't either, BUT, if you want to put forward your favorite, tell us which one it would replace and where on the rankings it would place. In fact I find Mojo's number one choice to be one of my least liked episodes. It reminds me of when Bones gets sick and the Yonanda library saves him. I don't care for one when Scotty defends Mira from the Zatar invasion. What do all these, and a couple other others have in common? Love stories. So, I'd replace Mojo's #1 with my favorite - The Corbomite Maneuver. I'd begin there while I'm enjoying some Tranya.

"Errand of Mercy" and "The Squire of Gothos" deserve to be in there as well. Too many great episodes!

I feel sympathy and sadness for anyone clueless enough to believe the Tribbles is a better episode than The Menagerie or Where No Man Has Gone Before - but mostly it’s derision toward their indescribable stupidity

My favorite is "Piece of the Action". Kirk and Spock are gangsters down on the Planet, while Scotty is left in charge of the Enterprise. The interplay between characters in this episode, is hilarious. Especially at the end where Bones realizes he forgot his communicator down on the planet. Priceless.

In Arena, the Gorn are slow and not agile. I know that is partly because the costume was so constricting, but Kirk actually comments on it. In the mirror universe Enterprise episode and well as the Kelvin Star Trek video game, they make the Gorn super agile. Not sure why they did that.

I wonder when they will start banning star trek for racism. The federation was clearly based on white people The klingons was clearly based on black people Its highly likely the romulans were based on asians Star trek was clearly racist, and the person writing it, clearly was basing races on races on earth. So are they going to ban star trek? lol When will hollywood say that star trek was racist, and want it banned. The writer who made star trek, was clearly basing the races in star trek, of his ideas of races on earth. Star trek was absolutely racist, and the ideas of the writers about races on earth.

conspicuously missing from this top 10 list is the episode where kirk falls in love with that extremely lovable and beautiful American indian woman Mirimane. also missing is that episode with Wyatt Earp and the Ok Corall. also missing is Plato's Stepchildren. also missing is that one with the Organians. and while the episode where Spock falls in love is mentioned in the above video, it is given only an honorable mention when really it deserves to be in the top 10

I like the episode where Kirk gets married and his wife is about to have his baby when she is killed. No one talks about that episode- "The Paradise Syndrome." It involves a community composed of members of various Native American tribes relocated to another planet by an alien race to protect them. Kirk is appointed their medicine man even though he is not Native American- a fact not lost on the previous medicine man.

I will just say that my favorite Star Trek episode was not mentioned. That would be Day Of The Dove, a witch and almost invisible entity invades causes both the Enterprise and a group of Klingons to engage in almost perpetual battle. Starring Michael Andsara and Susan Oliver, this story could be a parable for the endless civil wars that people seem to be fighting in the year 2020. And without spoiling anything, the solution that Kirk and the Klingons come up with could be something that could be used today.

The Star Trek Special Edition I taped in 1997 with cast and crew interviews, some interviews with the writers, in between the episodes before the commercials some of which I still have which includes The City on the Edge of Forever, Harlan Ellison was such a complainer about his re written script The City on The Edge of Forever. The way he talked about himself he acted like he could do no wrong. He was probably a very good writer. Never read his stuff. The original script was late and he had to be locked in a room to finish it. Ellison didn't strike me as a very nice person. If you're truly a professional and you're writing for someone else you do what they want and not crab if your script is rewritten. It's still a beloved episode. It still won two awards for original story and rewritten story.

Where's The Changeling! "I am Nomad!" "You are the Kirk the Creator." "Spock is one of your biolgoical units Creator? It is different. It is well ordered." "I am Nomad! I am perfect! That which is not perfect must be sterilized." "Non sequitor. Your facts are uncooridnated." "Error? Error? Faulty, faul-ty! Must sterilize! Ster-il-ize!" BOOM! How could you leave out my buddy Nomad! He had the best lines! He brought Scotty back to life! But I still wonder why Sickbay had no defibulator to jumpstart Scotty.
