    Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Gift
    VS
    Star Trek: The Original Series - Amok Time

    Tough call! The Gift by the teensiest of margins. I won't be upset if Amok Time wins, though.

    As an aside, the Body was on F/X earlier today, and it got me really choked up. Maybe it was the recent loss of my grandmother...

    Star Trek: The Original Series - Mirror, Mirror
    VS
    Star Trek: The Next Generation - Tapestry

    I hate to see TOS go down 2 for 2, but as I've said before, Tapestry is an episode that got me to totally re-think my life!

    Yesterday's Enterprise (This one was hard because I love Our Mrs Reynolds as well)

    Farscape PK Wars Part II - Just superb, humour, drama, emotion... just brilliant.

    Star Trek: The Next Generation - Yesterday's Enterprise

    Yesterday's Enterprise, because of the catagory. Our Mrs. Reynolds isn't actually time travel. Again, I strongly suggest there be a "comedy" catagory (or a catagory for teh hawtness!1!!11!1!)



    Farscape - The Peacekeeper Wars, Part 2

    Don't go by the region names. I chose them at random and shuffled all the episodes in without any proper categorization. They're there to distinguish each region so that the title can be changed to alert people that the tourney has been updated. Besides that, they're meaningless.


    No, but it's possible there might be a tournament on that in the future.
