Oh man this was a tough one, there are a bunch of stand out episodes that I really like in this show, the one that is my all time favourite feels like a cop-out but I can’t deny it. Trials and Tribulations is one of the most perfect homages to the original series that has ever been done. The attention to detail and the joy of seeing those wonderful TOS uniforms on our DS9 heroes are priceless.
The problem with this choice is that it’s obviously not just their show – the blending of the two really make this episode pop.
I would then like to mention the episodes that came very close to this, In The Pale Moonlight and The Visitor. Two exceptionally powerful episodes. I’d also mention that I’m very partial to Emissary and wonder if this is not the best of all the Star Trek pilot episodes.
Just before drawing this I sat and watched the whole episode and I’m more than okay with my choice – a really fun episode for all involved.
