Since the 50th Anniversary is coming up, I thought I’d throw these out there.

I’m not saying these are the best, just my favorites.

In no particular order:

A Taste Of Armageddon:

During a diplomatic mission to Eminiar VII, the Enterprise gets caught in a “war” where the casualties walk themselves into disintegration chambers, as one does. Kirk comes up with a solution that pleases no one. Written by Gene L. Coon and
Robert Hamner and guest-starring the inimitable David Opatoshu, this is not one to miss.

Mirror Mirror

A transporter malfunction transports Kirk, Uhura, Scott and McCoy into a parallel universe of lawful evil parallels. And Spock has a goatee.

Space Seed

The Enterprise finds an ancient colony ship with some interesting passengers, including KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.

The City on the Edge of Forever

Kirk, Spock and McCoy are flung back in time where they meet Joan Collins. Kirk falls in love with her, and who could blame him? Screenplay by Harlan Ellison, who, it is said, was locked in a room by Roddenberry until he rewrote it to the Head Man’s satisfaction.

A Piece of the Action

The Enterprise has been ordered to Sigma Iotia II, where the space vessel Horizon had been reported missing 100 years earlier. They find that the natives have gone all gangsta because the missing ship left them a book on the mobs of Chicago. Usually, The Trouble With Tribbles gets more cred for comedy, but, IMO, you just can’t beat Spock in a Fedora. Another gem from David P. Harmon and Gene L. Coon.

Just my favorites, folks. If you have your own, feel free to let us know.
