List some of your favorite episodes from the various Star Trek series.
The first I'll name is from my least liked series: Voyager. The episode: Latent Image. This is a great episode centering on The Doctor. He discovers memory issues and later learns his memory was erased because he had a psychotic break after being put in a situation where he had to choose which of two patients he'd save and which he'd let die. This is a great episode and seeing the doctor try to come to grips with what happened makes for one of the best trek episodes.
The other episode I'll talk about for now is "The Measure of a Man". This is the ep of TNG where a guy from Starfleet wants to dismantle Data and Picard argues in favor of him being given the same rights as humans. A great episode.

The Original Series, for me, veers from being some of the best television I've ever seen, to some of the worst.
TOS - Space Seed. Not just because of Khan either. It's a damn good episode.
I'm also a fan of Balance of Terror and The Doomsday Machine, among others.
TNG - Chain of Command is my favourite bar none, even if on subsequent watches Riker looks more and more like a dick. Not that Jellico was right, mind you, but he wasn't totally wrong either. And David Warner ****ing kills it as Madred. I also think it's Stewart's best performance in the series.
I like episodes from every series, but I'm particularly fond of The Offspring, Yesterday's Enterprise, The Drumhead, Measure of A Man, Q Who.
DS9 - In The Pale Moonlight. It's not just dark. It's believably dark. Sisko and Garak are amazing, and it's a massive turning point in what was a brilliant arc.
As it's my favourite show, DS9 is going to have most of my favourite episodes, so really, I like most of them. Special mention goes to Sacrifice of Angels though, purely for the spectacle of it all.
VOY - Scorpion, probably. It's one of Chakotay's best episodes, and is the introduction of Seven, who to be fair is one of the best characters in the series. I like Message in a Bottle too. Andy Dick might be a **** IRL, but he plays the role of a more annoying EMH perfectly. Worst Case Scenario starts off as one of my favourite episodes but falls apart once the malfunction happens, I feel.
ENT - The Expanse. Just a great episode from top to bottom, and set the tone for a really solid-to-great season of Star Trek.
I like most of seasons three and four, but anything with Shran in it gets my vote.
DIS - As poor as I feel the show has been, there have been some good moments. Pike especially carried a lot of episodes from mediocrity to a point of actually being somewhat enjoyable. I am hoping the show grows its beard in the third season, though.
I tend to like a lot of the screwy, one-off episodes. Anything with parallel universes is good with me. And episodes like Genesis in TNG (the one where they all devolve and Worf tries to eat everyone).
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
I never got into Deep Space Nine or Enterprise, so can't say about those.
Voyager ... have to get back to you on that. I didn't get into the show first run, but I've rediscovered it in syndication, and I like it even better than Next Gen. But I'm not that familiar with it, yet, to name a favorite episode, though I can say candidates involve 7 of 9, and The Doctor, my two favorite Voyager characters.
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
