Creepy Trek

Post by WarpNein » Thu Nov 01, 2018 3:35 am

It's Halloween, and in that spirit (hah) what are your scariest/creepiest/most unsettling episodes of Trek. Any Trek will do.

My favorites are Night Terrors, Identity Crisis and Schisms. Crusher hallucinating the shrouded corpses sitting upright is unfailingly chilling. The dusky Tarchannen settlement and Worf's raised hackles are creepy moments. My favorite is the holodeck recreation in Schisms, where each character comes to realize the terrifying experience they've all shared.

Thoughts? Which episodes creep you out?

:rofl:

My favorite is, of course, Catspaw from TOS. Those freaky looking little beasties at the end always gave me the chills. :o

IMO those are some of the best alien life forms ever shown on Trek- truly different instead of bumpy foreheaded cliches.

The FX of the time were limited. Gene Roddenberry sent down to Central Casting for non-human actor and got Lassie, Flipper, and Mr, Ed. So we get admittedly interesting girls painted weird colors. At least TNG could afford rubber appliances.

CGI is a blessing beyond belief for Science Fiction shows.
