Top 155 Star Trek Episodes of All Time (1966-2016)

by christian94 | created - 19 Jul 2013 | updated - 2 months ago | Public

Best 155 episodes (ranked 9 or 10/10) out of about 700 total, or over 3 weeks straight continuous running time (over 31 000 mins). From all 5 series (28 seasons) in chronological order by series starting with Enterprise (prequel) and ending with Voyager. I have seen all of TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT episodes (most more than once). Hoping the 2017 new series will be as captivating as these epic voyages.

Note 1: Animated series not included. Note 2: Multi-part episodes counted as individuals

DS9 (65 episodes) TNG (29 episodes) VOY (28 episodes) ENT (18 episodes) TOS (15 episodes)
