My favorite TNG episode. It was a big step to let Picard himself who always fought against Admirals like Satie or Nechayev or later Dougherty do something wrong, but it is more realistic than infallible moral figurehead and shows the more subtle differences between good and evil. It's not making mistakes like lusting for revenge like Picard in FC or Kirk in TUC which is bad, but not stoping and realizing what you became before it is too late.

I always liked how she appeared to break him before he turned her father's own words against her, myself.

But it is one the best TNG episodes, I agree.

I got choked up the first time I watched "The Tholian Web". The Voyager episode "One Small Step" is the only other episode to ever do that to me. Although some other episodes did get me emotional, but those were the only two that ever pushed it to the limit.

I forgot how good "One Small Step" was - you're right.

I'm really enjoying this thread a great deal. For one, there's no bashing or arguing. And for two, it's reminding me of so many good episodes that I forgot about.

And did anyone else notice - all facets of Trek have been represented here. Pretty cool.


PS - "The Tholian Web" freaked me out the first time I saw it. I was a little kid and naive enough to acutally believe that Captain Kirk was lost forever...!

DS9 episode... The Visitor... seems a common one to get people.. I found it a very well made little piece of work and I did kinda get watery eyed.

I didn't cry when Kirk died, oddly enough, but a couple older ladies in front of me in the movie theater did... then I kinda did a smidge just cause they did... lol.. but I digress.

To some extent, I ''feel'' the most for that particular ''enterprise'', her ''crew'' both the actors and those they portrayed, as they had the bad luck to come at the end of a decades long journey when what was coined as ''franchise fatigue'' was setting in.

Star Trek is truly a journey enjoyed both as a whole and as the sum of its parts by generations of fans.

That pretty much sums up how I feel as well. I also include some scenes from Terra Prime.

Seconded. That was the most emotional Star Trek episode ever.

Cried like a little girl.

Balance of Terror, the end when the Girl was in the chapel, when Kirk came to her and she fell into his arms got me.

I know it isn't an episode, but I was going through some tough emotional times in my life when I watched the death of Spock on TWOK, I literally wept.

Endgame, when I saw the tears in Harry Kims eyes when Tom first heard his baby girl cry on the intercom.

Inner Light

The Visitor.

These are the Voyagers when at the very end they show all 3 Enterprises, NX 01, NCC 1701, 1701 D

I'd watched all the original series a number of times before the hormones that lead to me tearing up (or, weeping outright) kicked in....

I wept when Data's child died.

I've teared up a lot...in fact, I can't narrow it down...but that's me. I'll be honest, the music for Voyager does me in....how lame is that?

I'm a crier. I've cried at any number of commercials (including one for McDonalds) and absolutely cried at the first Pokemon movie (was there more than one? I had to take my daughter to the one movie...)

....I don't even want to say what happened at TARZAN....

While not my favorite series, it's still one of my very top compositions in all of TREK. Doesn't make me cry, but it's quite emotionally resonant.

Here's another one: Jessie's song from TOY STORY 2. Impossible not to tear up at that one.
