TOS: Omega Directive- I still don't understan what exactly is happening with this episode and how it relates to the US, but I'll watch it again to try to understand it. It just sticks out as the all time weirdest premise for a show I have seen.


TNG: The one where Geordi starts transforming into an invisible alien because of some adaption from the planet that changes any being into an indiginous life form. Really liked this epsiode, but WEIRD!


DS9: Emporer's New Cloak- super weird, I think the writers were basically joking about how ridiculous the mirror universe is because nothing makes sense. Vic Fontaine is a real person in the 24th Century mirror universe? Lots of weird sexual innuendo, and trust me, it's just weird.


VOY: All time weirdest premise for Star Trek ever- Janeway and Paris devolve into salamanders and mate because they went to warp 10. It's even sounds weird tying it out but that's what happened.


ENT: Sorry I don't remember the name, but the one where they look for an old colony and find people living underground. Bizarre.

Oh, yeah, the ENT episode was Terra Nova. That was strange. Wasn't the Omega Directive a voyager episode?


Anyway, there were a lot of weird TOS episodes. I recently watched I, Mudd. That one was funny, and really weird. then there are normal weirds, like Spock's Brain. The whole series was full of them


TNG - Masks was crazy. Others come to mind, but I don't remember any being weirder than masks.


DS9 - I don't consider many episodes to be weird. Over all, it was probably the least weird series. But Move Along Home was crazy.


VOY - Yep, the salamander episode. That giant virus one was weird too.


ENT - Well, there was A Night in Sickbay, with replacing Porthos' brain with a chameoleon, the one where Hoshi decintigrates, and a few others.

The DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" might be the weirdest trek episode of all.

"Requiem for Methuselah" (TOS)


Leonardo da Vinci (!!!) has found immortality
& is living alone on his purchased planet
with his android made to appear female.



Captain Kirk, Spock & Bones beam down to the planet.
In 10 minutes, Kirk ("naturally") falls in love with "her,"
resulting in da Vinci and Kirk punching eachother out,
trying to possess her. Made even stranger by the fact
that the Real Life da Vinci was a raving homosexual ...

I tend to think there are two kinds of weird: good weird and bad weird.  Star Trek has both. 


TOS


Good weird: "I, Mudd"


Bad weird: "Spock's Brain"


 


TNG


Good weird: "Phantasms"


Bad weird: "QPid"


 


DS9


Good weird: "Who Mourns for Morn?"


Bad weird: "Profit and Lace"


 


VOY


Good weird: "Projections"


Bad weird: "Threshold"


 


ENT


Good weird: "In a Mirror, Darkly"


Bad weird: "A Night in Sickbay"


 


And an honorable mention for TNG's "Genesis," which is just bizarre.

"Profit and Lace" is often considered to be the worst DS9 episode period not just the worst weird episode.

Sorry, I meant the Omega Glory for that TOS epiode

I didn't think Terra Nova was that weird. Certainly not as weird as many other Ent. episodes.


BTW in A Night In Sickbay, they weren't actually replacing Porthos' brain, just one specific gland. (pituitary gland I think -- I'll have to watch again to confirm.)


I reckon Future Tense was a far stranger episode than either of those! Especially when time starts repeating around the vicinity of the time capsule.


Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

Okay, for TOS I also think that the I,Mudd is good weird: I love it! But another one,I don't remember the name, is where there is the black and white people. I mean, obvious, much? And then yes, the TNG one where troi is a cake ( and crusher is drinking rikers brain?????!!!?) That episode freaked me out.


Romulans are awesome. This is a fact. I am a firm believer in the fact that someday romulans will rule the galaxy. AND LOGIC WILL DIE (take that spock)

Doesn't anybody else besides me think that DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations" episode is one of the weirdest? It's the DS9 characters in an episode of the old 1960s Star Trek.

Good episode though.

The TNG first seaon episode "Justice" was by far one of the weirdest stories in all of Star Trek.  A planet full of super-creepy humanoids with the emotional maturity of Care-Bears, add to that a total lack of sexual inhibitions.
