First contact should be number one on the list. It was the second best movie in the franchise. According to polls.

Plus, the Voyager story when they traveled back to 1996 and earth should be on this list. That was other funniest episode of all Voyager ones

Top 10 Star Trek time travel stories

Is this story a re-cap of Enterprise, Season 2?
 
2012-11-29 09:13:38 AM  
Yesterday's Enterprise feels like it's too low on the list, but the other choices are better.

And I was always a bit disappointed with the end of Cause and Effect because we never got to see Captain Frasier get the news about what had happened.
 
2012-11-29 09:20:55 AM  
I'm not sure if Children of Time counts as a time travel episode, but if it does it should be on this list.
 
2012-11-29 09:21:19 AM  
1. The City on the Edge of Forever

Yep, they got #1 right. The best episode of TOS. Saw it back when TOS was the only series.

Do you have brain damage?

cman: Plus, the Voyager story when they traveled back to 1996 and earth should be on this list


Oh, you do. Sorry I asked.

I'd be willing to rip First Contact off the list entirely, and plop that Voyager turd on the bottom of the list. I don't even really remember that Voyager episode, but I can predict that it had some unfunny "funny" moments, was resolved by a gigantic reset button, and was better than the non-sensical piece of crap that was First Contact which gave us the dullest incarnation of the Borg yet.

T'pol in a little blue sundress, that alone should get it on the list.

And the velcro story line was funny

Hottie Sarah Silverman ftw.

No. There are no "top ten" time travel stories.

Time travel is the worst possible trot they ever used in that franchise. There are maybe TWO good uses in the whole history of the franchise. The Bill and Ted writers used time travel more interestingly and generally better than the Star Trek writers.
 
2012-11-29 10:19:45 AM  
Both of the DS9 Episodes on the list are some of the finest Trek in the history of the franchise. When I watched Trial and Tribble-ations back in the first run days I fell in love with ToS all over again, bought it on DVD for an absurd amount of money as I recall.

this should be on the list if only for the hotness of Sarah Silverman.

What about the DS9 episode where Sisko goes back to the time of the "Bell Riots" and ends up being identified as Bell in the history books?
 
2012-11-29 10:22:31 AM  
oh, and they forgot Time's Arrow.

So in First Contact, if the Borg have time travel technology, why did they only use it once?
 
2012-11-29 10:35:16 AM  

Mugato: So in First Contact, if the Borg have time travel technology, why did they only use it once?


Because they lost a cube, a sphere, and a queen in the process?

I would chalk that up under "Lets not do that again"

Yeah but they proved that there as many Borg Queens as there are Datas.

Also true, but by 2378 the Borg have stabilized the transwarp hub and now have access to all four quadrants. Earth, and humans for that matter, are no longer a primary threat, or needed resource, so why bother with them?

2012-11-29 10:50:21 AM  
So.. yeah.


Btw, Voy:Endgame should be on this list. If only because you get good "more realistic" interaction between future and past person.
 
2012-11-29 10:51:47 AM  

Mugato: Yeah but they proved that there as many Borg Queens as there are Datas.


Exactly and from everything we learned from their numbers 2 ships and a queen is nothing.

Feh.

Granny Janeway didn't once teach her middle-aged self the virtues of sweet, sweet self-love.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Mugato: Yeah but they proved that there as many Borg Queens as there are Datas.

If they learned *anything* the first thing they should have done was kill Picard when they got aboard Enterprise-E

They seem to be able to beat the hell out of Starfleet at will, except that damned Enterprise.

What makes the Big E different? Why.. It must be Locutus. So kill him, and we pwn all of humanity.

Meh. They ruined the Borg when they introduced the queen anyway.
 
2012-11-29 10:59:30 AM  
The Tribble DS9 episode was great, especially considering that it was a lot harder to composite shots from the new and original show footage back then. And Dax in a red shirt uniform.

And her fangirl squee at Spock was great.

No, they ruined the Borg when they introduced Hugh, and Picard was talked out of destroying the Borg because Geordi introduced him to Mary Sue of Borg.

Everything after that was just piling the shiat higher.

That episode was too damn nostalgic for my tastes. It only a huge lovefest of TOS. The concept was awesome, but the execution left something to be desired.

FirstNationalBastard: No, they ruined the Borg when they introduced Hugh, and Picard was talked out of destroying the Borg because Geordi introduced him to Mary Sue of Borg.


Oooo... Solid disagreement here.

I think Hugh made the Borg even more terrifying, when it introduced you to the concept that the people who are assimilated are still in those bodies. Somewhere... buried under layers of torture and forced protocols.

Hugh is the abortion debate of ST TNG. Seriously.

Is it ethical to kill your enemy without mercy because they may be able to be saved? Is it an act of mercy to free them from the hellish prison of their assimilated existence?

Picard should have been court martialed and thrown out of starfleet for farking that up.

Well it was the 30th anniversary episode, so it was nostalgic and all tongue in cheek.

if we thought hard enough, we can come up with court martial offenses for pretty much everyone in the main cast who was a member of Starfleet.

I waffled on saying Hugh.

However, we can all agree that Descent, straddling seasons 6 and 7, where Lore took over part of the Borg, was definitely the beginning of the bad times for The Borg, right?

If Picard were leading the charge in the Dominion War, we would have all been speaking Founderese within a month.

The Hugh incident showed Picard didn't have the stones to live with it.

Maybe that is the secret of the Federations success. Having the right people in the right job at the right time.

Depends on which Picard shows up. Ahab Picard or Boutros Boutros-Ghali Picard.

Ahab Picard only shows up when the Borg are involved and don't lead with a cuddly representative.

Ahab Picard was a bad-ass, but his emotions makes him a shiatty leader who reacts instead of acts.

Sisco, however, is able to channel his anger in ways that no other captain has been able to before. That anger makes him the cream of the crop when it comes to bad-assitry and leadership

maybe she would have flown the station through the wormhole then blew it up, somehow sealing the wormhole forever.

You know, if Counselor Troi were flying the ship with Janeway commanding, they would have just crashed Voyager into the Caretaker array and killed everyone.

And by "saved" you mean "re-enacted the ramming of the Caretaker array with his penis playing the part of Voyager and Troi's emo vagina as the array".

/Did you ever wonder if the first time Riker nailed Troi in the poop chute, she did that whole "Pain... I feel...GREAT PAIN" thing like she did in Encounter at Farpoint, to which Riker could only respond

Can you blame him? I was 10 to 17 when TNG was original run (1987-94), and I wanted Troi so bad.

"Justice".

It was basically a free-love hippy commune that wanted to kill Wesley.

What's not to like about that.
 
2012-11-29 01:06:23 PM  
ST:TNG episode that has the Enterprise blow up over and over until Data realizes the ship is stuck in a time anomaly. Best poker game ever.

tng.trekcore.com

It was the one where farking Wesley ruined the stopover at Camel Toe, Moose Knuckle, and Tits World because he wouldn't just die.

/it was also about 5 episodes after Fear of a Black Planet, where Picard smugly talked about how he couldn't break the prime directive, then saves the High Nubian Princess by quickly bringing her back to life after she's poisoned, and then in Wesley ruins Planet Fark, Picard smugly breaks the prime directive when he could have just used the same damn trick to save the little farker.
