I'd say "Charlie X" as well.

Amok Time, By Any Other Name, Galileo Seven and Let This Be Your Last Battlefield to name a few that sucked me in, oh and lets not forget The Way to Eden!

It's hard to say as I purposefully set out to start watching Star Trek (I have never seen it on TV as I don't have cable). I have many that I really liked, but I would probably go with the pilot, The Cage, since it is the first one I saw and if I hadn't liked it I probably wouldn't have watched any more.

Like some others, I got into Star Trek because of the "new movies". So I'm still in the "catching up" stages (even though I watched Star Trek in the 70's as a kid but I didn't remember many details). Initially I found it really hard to get into TOS. That slowly changed after Dagger of the mind and The Corbomite Manouver which I both really enjoyed, but the episode that *really* got me into TOS, was The Menagerie. It blew me away.

The Trouble with Tribbles. That is the episodes that has stuck in my mind for years and years since seeing as a kid.

I started watching it as a child in the 70s.  It was on Saturday afternoons, in syndication.  It wasn't until my teens, in the 80s that I truly appreciated it, and loved it.  By far, my favorite episode is "Spectre of the Gun" where Kirk, Spock, Scotty, and McCoy end up on a strange planet, destined to re-live the gunfight at the OK Corral.  Besides the stroyline, I found the way it was filmed was creepy, with a Twilight Zone-ish feel.  I loved it.  I have been a die-hard Trekkie ever since.
