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.

Yeah that was really creepy how the Edo people ran around in those revealing skimpy little outfits all the time(including the males), but they would have people executed for the slightest infraction like Nazis or something.

Lately I've been watching more TOS and VOY so I'll talk about those.


TOS has too many, but I will single out "Miri" and "The Alternate Factor".


The latter was BAD weird and the former, well, the verdict is still out.


VOY has some too, I won't mention "Theshold" cuzz that's obvious.


"Distant Origin" is weird because it's probably the only star trek episode in which the main characters are not seen at all until near the end of the episode. The entire episode is written from the Alien's point of view.


"Living Witness" is also weird because it's the only episode of star trek in which NONE of the main characters appear. (The EHM seen is supposed to be a backup module). Secondly, the entire episode takes place 900 years from Voyager's present. All the main characters are dead (except the real EMH) and it's the 33rd Centery, whcih also makes it chronilogically the farthest in time we've ever seen on Star Trek. 


"Before and After" is weird because it's one of the better episodes in the early seasons and it's a Kes episode (just kidding). On a serious note, Kes is experiencing time in reverse so she's jumping backward to younger states until eventually jumps back to her birth, then the womb, then an embryo. We've seen other trek characters as old people and as children before, but she went from a senior citizen to an empryo in one episode. Only character in Trek to be seen as at literally every stage in life. 


EDIT: Forgot to add, she went from embryo to non-existent for a second of two. The womb was bad enough, the embryo was worst but non-existence has blown the scale of weirdness.
