“I love ‘Doomsday Machine,’ but I'm concerned that the effects and Windom's dying scene would be too over-the-top on a big screen. ‘Mirror, Mirror’ is also a great episode, but I wouldn't want newbies to see the bit about being transported into the counterparts' uniforms and Kirk-having-sex-to-save-the-day. I think that ‘City on the Edge of Forever’ is thought-provoking, and ‘Balance of Terror’ is applicable to today's international problems-- so either would be a great choice to watch on a big screen and then talk about afterward with your friends at the food court.” – Mela Kirkwood

“People are voting ‘Mirror,Mirror’? Really? Honestly I think ‘The Doomsday Machine’ would make a better movie than these other choices, or maybe even ‘Balance of Terror’ if they did it right, but ‘Mirror, Mirror?’ Come on. It's not a bad episode, but it wouldn't be a very good movie.” – Beloved Ingenium
