This week's poll will begin a series of polls on these moments, starting with the Original Series. Set far in the future, TOS was written and produced at a time of huge social upheavals and stresses in the United States. The Old South was aflame with the Civil Rights Movement, thousands of young men were involved in the increasingly unpopular war in Vietnam and the country was in the existential struggle with the USSR known as the Cold War. Roddenberry's genius was to write commentary into many of his episodes of TOS that made clear his opinions.

What's your favorite?

It may seem odd, but I chose The Trouble With Tribbles in which the tribbles can identify the enemy when all the technology and clever officers failed to do so, proving that the instinct of the heart is sometimes far better than anything else! :P

I liked Balance of Terror because it made me think.

I picked the kiss, especially since the network nixed it, but Roddenberry and Shater conspired to get it in anyway.
