What do you think are some of the best Star Trek TV episodes, from any of the series?
State the title or story line, and the series name, if you know it.
There were also some episodes that were rather weird or stinkers, but a number of them were really good. 

Even the original series from way back had some good episodes.  All of the series seem to be on reruns and streaming services.  I have not seen them all as there are so many.

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

The Next Generation episode where there was an Enterprise D and the previous Enterprise C, because of a temporal rift, is memorable. 

Feel free to add more replies as you think of other great episodes...

I did not particuarly care for the Star Trek Voyager series but the very last episode is one of my favorites.

 Endgame_(Star_Trek:_Voyager) last episode,

Voyager finally makes it back home to Earth.

The Borg are unable to penetrate Voyager's new adaptive hull armor or to capture it with tractor beams, while Voyager destroys two Borg cubes with transphasic torpedoes!

With the deactivation of the Queen, the Unicomplex suffers a cascade failure and explodes, killing the partially assimilated Admiral. Meanwhile, Captain Janeway and her crew have entered a transwarp corridor and fired torpedoes at the unprotected manifolds while traveling back to the Alpha Quadrant.

Another good Voyager episode is “Macrocosm.”

Alien creatures cause havoc on the Enterprise.

@ChrissyRyan - that particular episode was well done  :) great plot line, Kirk trapped in the shifting phases of space and time, can Scotty transport him back in time, before it's too late ?

It was a great episode.  I will try to recall more from all of the series and post some more as I get time, maybe even today.

Trials and Tribble-ations” Season 5, Episode 6 from Deep Space 9. 

Like Northern Star said though, Endgame from Voyager is the best.  It was really amazing.

Never became a big fan of Star Trek but I've seen a fair share of episodes from various versions. Trouble With Tribbles is still my favorite from the original. They're so cute :3
I have a little fuzzy ball on my key chain and I do call it my tribble.

Otherwise any episode that has "Q" in it from the next generation. He was my favorite character.

The Voyager returning home episode was interesting in its time sequencing of events in that it opened up with scenes many years after their return, plus the main story that followed about what happened on their way back.
