Ever want a quick guide as to what score Chuck gave a particular episode of Star Trek? You're in luck, because his Trivia section has got you covered. Remember, the score given is relative to all other episodes in each particular series, and not in any other. Also, the scores are awarded in approximate bell-curve fashion: this means that there will be relatively few episodes with a very high or very low score. The scores listed below will always reflect his most recent review of that episode.
Within each score category, episodes are listed by series, in chronological order (by original airdate). Clicking on the episode title will link you to our write-up about it in the Recap section of the site, if there is one.
This is a work in progress, so please feel free to lend a hand.
TNG: "Code of Honor" - Awarded not only due to its silly plot and horribly incompetent direction, but the Unfortunate Implications of having the planet consist entirely of black people and being a stereotype of Darkest Africa from the 1940's.
ENT: "A Night in Sickbay" - An episode where Archer demonstrates his diplomacytraining by sulking about his dog. Actually got some of the highest ratings of the season, but they plummeted after this episode and put the franchise in danger.
Two episodes have given the award to a real-life person rather than one of the episode's characters:
"Shades of Gray" - Awarded to episode writer and outgoing showrunner Maurice Hurley, as a special parting gift for the man Chuck considers the worst-ever Star Trek writer.
"Qpid" - Won by the episode's director, due to the awkward staging and filming of much of the episode, combined with the fact that he didn't find any of the characters that annoying.
Three episodes have given the award to an object rather than a person.
"The Hunted" - Won by James Cromwell's mustache
"The Best of Both Worlds" - Won by Wesley's hair
"Parallels" - Won by Data's painting
"The Game" - Won by The "Outrageous" Okona, even though he wasn't in the episode, because he was so annoying in his own episode giving him the award just once simply wasn't enough
"Captain's Holiday" - Won by the entire Enterprise crew for the way they spend most of the first act.
"Realm of Fear" - Won by the bad special effects for making the object within the transporter look like an eye instead of a mouth
"Ship in a Bottle" - Won by Dr. Pulaski despite the fact that she had long-since departed TNG, due to Chuck's resentment at her being in "Elementary Dear Data," which he had to rewatch to get the backstory for this episode.
"The Chase" - Awarded to Disney due to their closure of the Blip.tv website, thus requiring Chuck to find new hosting and delaying the upload of the episode.
"Eye of the Needle" - Neelix is not in the episode at all, so not awarded.
"Tattoo" - Waived as compensation for Neelix suffering Eye Scream
"The Gift" gives the award to the departure of Kes, which is not caused by Neelix in universe but when the production team decided not to get rid of Harry Kim, they decided to also keep the hated Neelix and instead get rid of his attractive, intelligent and well liked girlfriend.
"The Disease" - Actually received a bonus point for Neelix not acting like an idiot
"Life Line" - Awarded to a moment clearly undeserving of one:
Chuck: Neelix walked into a room and handed the Doctor a PADD. This offended me.
