1) TOS: The Cage / Where No Man Has Gone Before


2) VOY: Caretaker


3) DS9: Emissary


4) ENT: Broken Bow


5) TNG: Encounter At Farpoint


If you like break out the two TOS pilots if you like and rate them separately.

I have a hard time placing the pilots for TOS. They were very different than the preimeres of the other shows. But as far as the other ones, I rank them like this:


1. DS9: Emissary


A big part of what I like to see in a premiere is how the captain is introduced, and I thought Sisko had an awesome introduction, especially the first 5 minutes.


 


2. VOY: Caretaker


Voyager had a lot of cool premises making the premiere really cool


 


3. Encounter at Farpoint


This one has it's weaknesses for sure, but I just love the courtroom scenes, and I love Picard's role in the episode (yes, I love the mean Picard)


 


4. ENT: Broken Bow


A really fun episode that gets done everything it needs to, but I just didn't think there was as much substance as the others.

I generally agree with this, but I have ENT: Broken Bow above TNG: encounter at Farpoint.  My main problem with Broken Bow was that the Suleban (sp?) were kind of thrown at us out of nowhere, but otherwise I thought it was well done.  The TNG opener was good for its time, especailly with Trek being absent for so long, but comparing it to how well done the other openers were has me putting it further down on the list.
