I loved #1.. it was one of the original episodes to deal with the effects of time travel.. one of the great things about Star Trek.

Hi Bob,

Yes, I believe The City of the Edge of Forever is regarded as the best Star Trek episode every filmed. Personally I will rank it after The Best of Both Worlds in Star Trek: TNG.

Ditto your ranking of The Best of Both Worlds.. I remember talking about it with friends during the summer of 1990.. it was a great cliffhanger two-parter.. the second of the two parts (I think) legitimized the Riker character as a credible first officer.

All that said.. I have to say that the season of "Enterprise" where they fought the Xindi was one of my favorite Star Trek seasons as a whole.

'Captain Kirk' is on my TV now. He's Denny Crane from Boston Legal and oh boy he looks real different from the hunk on the comicbook cover!
