Shadow Blasko: 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?


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?



Mugato: 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.

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



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.

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


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?

I haven't watched any of TOS, but the rest has left me with one conclusion: I hate time travel episodes.

The only one(s) I remember fondly (or at least find interesting) is Voyager's: Year of Hell and TNG's: Time's Arrow. Maybe it's because they didn't leave a big pile of WHY after watching it. Not that Time's Arrow didn't come close. After introducing Mark Twain as someone who knew what was going on, I couldn't facepalm hard enough.

Inner Light was a time travel story of sorts, and possibly the best Trek episode EVAR!

why wouldn't "the inner light" constitute as time travel? Picard lives and entire lifetime in 25 minutes!

It is unfortunate that it is the over-reliance on Time Travel that is strangling the franchise.

wiseolddude: What was the TNG episode where the inhabitants ran around in white underwear?


"Justice".

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

What's not to like about that.

cman: 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


You mean Goatee Sisco.


There is a difference

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.

Janeway would have just blown up DS9 at the first sign of Cardassian incursion.

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.

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.

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.

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.
