Worst STAR TREK Moments

STAR TREK premiered 42 years ago on September 8th.

Here's a bit of video from SciFiDude42 with the 10 worst moments in classic STAR TREK. Like any list, this is all a matter of opinion. Some spoilers about what's in the video are after the jump, so go look now and don't read what's below if you want to be surprised by the content:

I have no problem with numbers 10 ("And the Children Will Lead"), 7 (the cheesy monsters from "The Galileo Seven"), 4 (the cheesy Godzilla rock cave Vaal in "The Apple"), 3 ("The Return of the Archons"), 2 ("Spock's Brain") and 1 ("The Way to Eden"). But, if you like TOS (The Old Show), you gotta embrace some of the cheese!

I'm sorry, but I like four of theses "worsts:" 9 ("The Omega Glory," wherein Shatner dramatically reads (as only The Shat can!) the US Constitution), 8 (the crew realizes they're in the old west in "Spectre of the Gun"), 6 (Abraham Lincoln appears in "The Savage Curtain"), 5 (the very good teaser for an otherwise bad/confusing episode "The Alternative Factor").

Now, there are certainly things to pick on. I'll give you that. Here are a few off the top of my head:
  • Shatner filing his nails in "Turnabout Intruder"

  • Clint Howard's dubbed voice and laugh in "The Corbomite Maneuver."

  • McCoy r-r-ripping Kirk's sleeve off to hypo him at the end of "The Naked Time."

  • The non-disguised microphone that is supposed to mask your heartbeat in "Courtmartial."

  • Kirk, McCoy, Scotty openly lusting after "Mudd's Women;" Dr. Miranda Jones "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"
But, the show is fun. More fun than TAS, TNG, DS9, VOY or Enterprise, in my opinion. That's what makes it endure.
