    #5 The Cage (original pilot)
    #4 Where No Man Has Gone Before
    #3 The Changeling
    #2 The Doomsday Machine, and...
    #1 Mirror, Mirror

    Why can't I do a poll?  I did one for TSMDM, why not Trek TOS??

    I'm not as much in agreement with your best episodes as I am your worst. Here's my Top 5:

    5. Mirror, Mirror & The Enemy Within (tie)(Hope you don't mind)
    4. What Are Little Girls Made Of?
    3. Squire Of Gothos
    2. I, Mudd
    1. The Trouble With Tribbles

    5 Space Seed (only because it spawned the greatest Star Trek film)

    4 Mirror, Mirror (Just a fun concept, and a different view of the Enterprise)

    3 The Trouble with Tribbles (most all around entertaining episode)

    2 Balance of Terror (shows why Kirk really is the best) 

    1  City of the Edge of Forever (showing the difficult decisions a star captain has to make)

    Wow. Picking just five is almost impossible (how about a "20 best episodes" thread?). Anyway, here goes:

    5. The Enterprise Incident
    4. City on the Edge of Forever
    3. Amok Time
    2. Balance of Terror
    1. Mirror, Mirror

    Just to add, not slighting Mirror Mirror, City on the Edge of Forever, Balance of Terror, Arena& Trouble with Tribbles...any true fan understands they are all classic episodes, but the five I mentioned are personal favorites...
