Default Looking for your best and worst Star Trek episodes

As part of the coming "Star Trek Month" in The Couch Potato, I want to try to include a top 10/20 of the best and worst episodes of the series. All five versions can be included, ie Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Star Trek Voyager and Enterprise if you must.

You can list all your best and/or worst episodes, in order if you want or not if you don't want to: I'll be organising them anyway. If possible, give the reasons why you think the episodes are good or bad.

Thanks!

The Empath
I remember seeing Star Trek reruns at a very early age, and before I really could grasp what was going one I found this particular one intriguing. Every so often I get to see them and the older I get the more I understood. I just remember seeing clips of it, it was kinda dream-like, but I remember loving the whole concept behind the main character. I thought it was Sci-fiction at its best. I heard Trekees consdier "The City on the Edge of Forever" as the best episode ever. But the The Empath has always been a personal favorite and one I consider the best episode.

The Empath (episode) - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki

I don't know if it the worst but one I found particularly annoying to no end in sight was
And the Children Shall Lead

It will take some time, but I can do my favorites/least favorites for TNG.

When I saw that Neapolitan had put the Empath, I thought yer I agree it's certainly one of the worst Trek episodes, then I saw he was voting it as one of the best!

Anyway I need some time to put the best and worst up of original Trek, but some of the very best I'd vote:

Balance of Terror
City on the Edge of Forever
Galileo Seven
The Menagerie (2 part story)
What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Thanks guys.

Some of my own best and worst:

Best: "Best of both worlds part I" (TNG), "In the pale moonlight" (DS9) "The year of Hell" (VOY), "The Enterprise incident" (TOS)

Worst: "Code of honor" (TNG), "Fascination" (DS9) "Fair Haven" (VOY), "The omega glory" (TOS)

Just off the top of my head: it'll take some time to get a proper list together.
Thanks for helping out and keep 'em coming.

PS Neo, that episode "The empath", you may or may not know, was banned for a long time because of the at-the-time graphic scenes of torture. How times change huh?
And yes, I wanted to punch that kid (Jimmy? Billy?) in "And the children shall lead"...

I'm not a big trekkie but with all the respect and admiration I have for the series, what it's done and what it achieved, I have a "worst" episode for you.
Storm Front (episode) - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
Simply painful to watch, on more levels than one.

If you watch carefully, when the Gorn throws a cardboard rock at him to supposedly crush him, it's so light that Kirk has to work to keep it from rolling off him!
