Since I was about seven years old, I loved Star Trek
and had managed to watch every episode in syndication by the time that I was ten. Although there was competition, to me, the most gripping episode was and remains "The Doomsday Machine.
" The dramatic tension
is riveting, especially when Kirk and Scotty managed to bring the Constellation
back into combat and then drive it down the planet killer's throat. And William Windom's depiction of the mad Commodore Matthew Decker was excellent in its exquisite detail. Quite appropriately it was nominated for a Hugo Award and was Jimmy Doohan's favorite. You can watch the whole episode here
