It's not close to my favourite show but hell, The Inner Light from ST:TNG is easily the best for me. It's one of the few episodes of an ongoing science fiction show that manages to grasp at the promise of the written genre. It's not space battles, it's not even conflict really but it's the soul of Asimov, Ballard and many more in a piece of heart breaking and illuminating television.
