Oh, gods! It was so long ago, I don't know if there was any one episode... however, I remember having VHS recordings of the first 4 movies. On the tape, between TMP and TWOK, was "Space Seed" (my dad recorded it as a prelude to TWOK)...  That's probably the episode I remember most clearly.  Others I absolutely loved involved alternate/historical Earths like "Miri", "A Piece of the Action", and "All Our Yesterdays".

I'd have to go with either The Ultimate Computer, The Doomsday Machine, Tommorow is Yesterday, Assignment Earth, or City on the Edge of Forever.

When I was a child, I caught the last minute or two of Catspaw, beginning when Spock is walking up behind Kirk.  He looked like a bad guy to me, with dark hair and distorted facial features.  Back then in my experience heroes and villains wore white hats or black hats; the light-haired guy in the gold shirt was obviously the good guy, and the black-haired guy walking up behind him was probably going to stab him in the back or something equally horrible.  I inhaled big, afraid of what I was about to see.  But the black-haired guy stepped up alongside the light-haired guy, and they started talking quietly together.  I was confused.  And then a spaceship was moving away into the distance, and I understood that these two were friends on board that ship.  This new idea rocked my world-- black hair or distorted facial features doesn't make someone a bad guy, and people who are very different can be friends.  I didn't know what the name of that TV show was until several years later when I saw a commercial saying that Star Trek was going to start playing in syndication, and it showed a shot of Kirk and Spock standing side-by-side.  I immediately recognized them as my light-haired guy and black-haired guy, and knew that this was going to be the show for me.

It wasn't until fairly recently that I racognised my Trekkieness, but I liked the show the first time I ever saw it. I didn't "remember the name of that firs episode, per se, but an image from it stuck in my mind.



The next time I saw that image, I knew what the name of the episode was.


It was Balance Of Terror.

It's interesting because I saw this thread and thought about it and realized that Balance of Terror was also the episode that got me going in to Star Trek. My dad had several episodes recorded on a VHS tape and this episode was one of them. He also had the Star Trek Concordance so I was able to read through that and understand the basic ideas of the show.


Then I saw Balance of Terror, with all the submarine style warfare, Romulans and good scifi action.


It is still one of the best Star Trek episodes, in my opinion.

I have to say the TOS episodes, though more specifically it would be The Man Trap.

Star Trek IV The Voyage Home, but if only TV I think it was Balance of Terror and The City on the Edge of Forever.

Miri was the first one that really kinda freaked me out so I got to say that is when I became a big fan. But I wouldn't say it was an episode that got me but Kirk and Spock. Kirk was my first crush... kinda sad...


Hi! I am 15 and I started watching Star Trek when my dad showed it to me when I was 6. So 9 years of having basically no social life... and becoming socially awkward...
