Space: The final frontier. Since all the way back in 1966, television viewers have been privileged to accompany the Starship Enterprise as it explored strange new worlds, sought out new life and new civilizations, and boldly went where no one had gone before. The Enterprise’s sister ship, Voyager, went even farther. And even without quite as many new worlds and civilizations, Deep Space 9 managed to serve up some of the most compelling adventures of all.

The five separate series in the Star Trek saga have included so many outstanding episodes that choosing favorites is a Herculean task. Here at Geek Speak, however, we’re always up for a challenge. To celebrate the end of Star Trek‘s 50th Anniversary year, and in anticipation of Star Trek Discovery in 2017, here are the episodes that stayed with us long after the star field faded away…

KEY: Star Trek (TOS), The Next Generation (TNG), Deep Space Nine (DS9), Voyager (VOY), Enterprise (ENT)
