    As you know, "Turnabout Intruder" turned out to be the last TOS episode to make air. I personally feel that the series could have gone out on a better note.

    With that in mind, which third season episode do YOU think would have made a better finale?

    I'd go with "All Our Yesterdays". Not only do I feel that this is the best episode of season three, but it would make my top ten episodes of ALL Trek series.

    What about you?

    I agree with "All Our Yesterdays". That's the only episode that really has a "finale" quality to it. I can't think of another one that could serve as a finale..."Day of the Dove" maybe, but it's a stretch.

    I'm really not a big fan of most 3rd season episodes.

    "All Our Yesterdays" would've been a good finale, can also say "Whom Gods Destroy" for a fun ending or "The Enterprise Incident," would've made a good plank for the movie instead of the plot-recycle ST:TMP was.

    Yes to "All Our Yesterdays". Its possible this ep was written last (it has a higher stardate), although "Turnabout" was produced last.
    The exploding star as the end was cool.

    "All Our Yesterdays" would be good plot-wise, but I don't think I'd be happy with a finale that had no scenes on the Enterprise and none of the major chacacters except Scotty's voice.

    You mean none of the minor characters.
    It was a good Kirk-Spock-McCoy ep.

    Yeah, it really is a great character study for the three of them. It's sort of an exploration of their friendship, to some extent.

    Is it really over? New Voyages "To Serve All My Days" should be coming out soon.
