If I had to pick an absolute fav episode i would say Yesteryear because learning about Spocks origins (whether they be cannon or not) is  too exciting to ignore. However The Lorelei Signal and The Infinite Vulcan are close seconds. And in my opinion The Magicks of Megas-Tu is by far the worst episode of TAS and one of the worst in all of Star Trek

The worst is definitely Albatross. The title had nothing to do with the episode... or is it the other way around? Well, either way, that was a dud.


 


Best? I dunno... I always liked that one where they found that water planet... can't remember the title right off.

Favs:
Yesteryear- great character development
One of our planets is missing- liked the use of diplomacy
Ambergris element- original and inventive

Bad:
Megas-Tu- angered me how it sympathizes with the devil
The Jihad- slow, dull, and silly.

Ambergris Element! That was it. It was fun in a corny B-movie kind of way.

I didn't find it corney. The concept of bio engineering a person like that was innovative for its time. I also liked the amphibious shuttle craft. It was one of the few episodes that captured the spirit of TOS while telling a story you couldn't do in live action.

Well you know: it was Star Trek's spin on the whole legend of Atlantis.

I don't know about that. The Atlantis people didn't turn themselves into fish.

Then how, pray tell, did they survive at the bottom of the ocean? Hmmm...

Been a long time since I saw the movie, but I DO remember it involved Leonard Nimoy.  So maybe there IS a connection.

I Think maybe he was the voice of the princess's father.

Among my favorites are: Yesteryear, More Trouble More Tribbles, The Time Trap, and The Practical Joker.


I don't like The Slaver Weapon or The Ambergris Element.

I hated The Magicks of Megas-Tu. Incredibly unrealistic. Did not like sympathizing with the devil, and did anyone NOT make the connection between someone named "Lucian" with hooves, and Lucifer?


My favorite is probably The Slaver Weapon. The Time Trap was good, too.

Right. Unlike the rest of Star Trek, which is realism in its purest form: Nazi planet, Al Capone planet, American Revolution taking place in Mongol Empire planet, etc....
