A classic invasion of the body snatchers theme topped off with the unforgettable gross-out moment where Remmick goes boom

Jack the Ripper (aka Redjac) makes his way to the the 23rd century, but he still has a thing for knives

1. Dustin Cook - October 31, 2007

FIRST! Best of Both Worlds anyone?

2. Jörg - October 31, 2007

I always found “Night terrors” really scary. “One moon circles”, “Eyes in the dark” – spooky.

3. Jim Smith - October 31, 2007

I like ‘Star Trek’ a lot. I’ve never considered it to even approach ‘scary’ or even contemplated ‘scary’ being one of the show’s attributes or thought about using the adjective to describe any aspect of the series. Funny isn’t it, the differences in perception people have?

4. Daskill - October 31, 2007

Agreed.

5. Smitty - October 31, 2007

TNG Frame of Mind

Trek meets The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari.

-cs™

6. Luca AKA RuFFeD_UP AKA Lukas - October 31, 2007

Frame of mind and Genesis should be in there.

7. Cervantes - October 31, 2007

As a kid, I always thought the unknown mysterious creatures and constructs had the most creepy potential, such as the gigantic, seemingly unstoppable, and unknown ‘Doomsday Machine’, which seemed a scary prospect to confront…

Unlike say, Klingons or Romulans. ;)

Happy Halloween all.

8. max - October 31, 2007

Yeah, where’s Night Terrors? I know it isn’t anybodies favorite, but its totally a Halloween episode.

9. Etha Williams - October 31, 2007

Schisms…oh my God, I still can’t watch that episode straight through. I remember the first time I watched it, during the holodeck scene, I had to pause it mid-scene because I was having the weirdest physiological fear response — cold sweats, trembling, dizziness….very few things scare me, especially in movies, but that episode still scares the HELL out of me.

Frame of Mind was pretty frightening too…actually of all the movies & TV shows I’ve watched, Trek has some of the scariest moments for me.

10. Demtetrius Duncan - October 31, 2007

When I was a kid I found some of the TOS episodes really scary–especially the Lights of Zetar. The face of the dying woman on Memory Alpha, the matching brain wave scans. Brr. Catspaw, not so much. Where No Man Has Gone Before was pretty creepy–the energy barrier, the glowing eyes, Mitchell’s growing powers.
What about Devil in the Dark?

11. Ron - October 31, 2007

Trek’s efforts to be scary were usually hampered a.) when the protagonists of the episode are never actually scared themselves (such as TOS’s “Catspaw”), or b.) when you just know there’s going to be some technobabble cause and solution to the frights (any “scary” TNG episode from the third season or so on).

That said, along with what there is on the list already I’d add that there are some genuinely creepy moments in “First Contact” (the film, not the episode) as well as ENT’s first season episode “Silent Enemy.”

12. Jamie - October 31, 2007

WHAT!??

Why isn’t Voyager’s “The Thaw” on this list?

An episode based on a character who embodies fear itself.

I was certain that was going to be number 1… but it wasn’t even on there.

???

13. Andy Patterson - October 31, 2007

I grew up in a medium sized Texas town which supported 3 Universities all with religious affiliations. One Baptist. One Methodist and the other Church of Christ. To say the least, it was a very conservative town. I’d been watching the Star Trek re-runs that the nation was enjoying in the early 70’s for about three years when it was announced one day that we would be getting 5 episodes that we’d never seen. They were all episodes that dealt with deities or related scary subjects. They were:

Where No Man Has Gone Before
Wolf In The Fold
Return To Tomorrw
The Lights of Zetar

and Catspaw

Where No Man Has Gone Before always scared the hell out of me, what with Gary Lockwood’s great creepy performance and those EYES.

14. Gabriel Bell - October 31, 2007

DS9’s two-parter “Homefront” and “Paradise Lost.”

Scary because it was so prescient on our current foreign policy follies.

15. SPB - October 31, 2007

You know, “RETURN OF THE ARCHONS” was pretty atmospheric in and of itself. Maybe not a flat-out “horror” episode, but the “Festival” sequence was extremely unsettling. More creepy than scary, but it still manages to get under your skin! I think you could easily get away with showing this one on Halloween, too!

16. jon1701 - October 31, 2007

Where is NIGHT TERRORS!!!

Oh, and Devil in the Dark scared the crap out of me when I was 3 years old. Does that count?

17. SPB - October 31, 2007

And don’t forget “ARENA!” That Gorn scared the bejesus out of me as a kid… I had to watch the episode from behind the family couch, much like the “Bigfoot” episodes of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN!

18. Rog - October 31, 2007

I think the only moment in Trek that ever sent a chill down my spine was when Nagilam popped onto the viewscreen in… what… “Where Silence Has Lease.”

19. Dave in RI - October 31, 2007

For me, most of the TOS episodes mentioned were the scarier/creepier ones simply because I originally saw them as a child. Not so scary as an adult, of course, but I remember how I felt watching them as a kid.
However, if I had the chance to view the later series as a kid, I’m sure many of those episodes would have creeped me out to no end also. :-)

20. Scott - October 31, 2007

Can’t believe no one’s mentioned Charlie X. That faceless woman, Charlie’s eyes rolling up in his head, Spock’s broken legs, and Charlie turning that nice Tina into an iguana all creeped me out as a liddow boy.

Scott B. out.

P.S. I agree with SPB that Return of the Archons had a creepy vibe to it too.

21. Cox of Seagulls - October 31, 2007

Schisms always scared me as a kid. So did Where Silence Has Lease. A lot of early TNG was creepy.

22. Cox of Seagulls - October 31, 2007

Silent Enemy was pretty creepy too.

Brrr!

23. Kurt - October 31, 2007

The scariest trek moment of all time is in ST II when the eels are crawling into Chekov and Terrel’s ear. I couldn’t watch that scene until I was in my twenties it creeped me out so much

24. Derek - October 31, 2007

# 3, I agree. Re: never considered it to even approach ’scary’
I never thought of any Trek as being scary, What’s up with That? Been watching since the 60’s….. I’d have to say, I seen every show many times and I ‘ve saw every show on it’s first Air Date.
Maybe Star Trek XI will scare me,,,

25. Nathan - October 31, 2007

I’d agree with most of your choices, but Frame of Mind definitely, definitely deserves to be on that list… that and Schisms are probably the two scariest episodes in my book. Empok Nor is pretty darn frightening too…

26. Hon. David Kulessa - October 31, 2007

Genesis just for that bit where Barclay jumps up at the window as a half-spider. I know it’s coming and I still jump every time.

Frame of Mind was borderline hilarious, but first time I watched it I was also kinda freaked.

Night Terrors was a horrible episode, but I can still barely watch that bit in the morgue when all the bodies sit up.

Voyager episodes like One and Persistence of Vision are pretty freaky too, in places.

And not to leave out DS9, Empok Nor and The Adversary off the top of my head. I haven’t watched enough TOS and I don’t like enough ENT to pick anything from them.

-TGP-

27. Hon. David Kulessa - October 31, 2007

Ooh! The Assignment from season 5 of DS9 is pretty freaky, in the same way that TNG’s Power Play is. I mean, Keiko was scary even before she was taken over by evil spirits.

-TGP-

28. Hon. David Kulessa - October 31, 2007

Sorry. Hard Time from DS9 as well.

-TGP-

29. Lee - October 31, 2007

What about TNG Gothic ghost story, “Sub Rosa”? One of my favorites…

30. Mike P - October 31, 2007

Is “The Thaw” the one with the supposedly scary clown? That episode, and Michael McKean’s performance, was so bad it was scary…

The movie “First Contact” is definitely the scariest Star Trek ever on screen. Maybe it was excluded b/c it is not an episode per se?

31. Kyle Nin - October 31, 2007

I agree that “Schisms” is probably the scariest, but I think “Frame of Mind”, “Night Terrors” and “Genesis” should be on the Top 10 as well. Those episodes really freaked me out. If anything, TNG did the best job of all the Treks, as far as scary moments go.

32. Jackson Roykirk - October 31, 2007

What about ‘The Corbomite Maneuver’. ;)

That Balok really creeped me out! And I’m not talking about the puppet — it was the creepy little bald Clint Howard with the weird dubbed voice that gave me the heepie-jeebies.

As a young boy, I had many nightmares about being chased by little Blalok, trying to force me to drink tranya. :-)

33. Jackson Roykirk - October 31, 2007

RE: #32

oops! Freudian Slip!

I meant I had nightmares about being chased by little BALOK, not BLALOK.

(although I must admit, If I was a young teenage lad during the run of ‘Enterprise’, I probably would have had dreams about Ms. Blalock.)

34. RetroWarbird - October 31, 2007

Crap. I can’t remember the name …

But the episode where Riker is trapped in the alien mental institution is possibly the only episode of Star Trek that ever really freaked me out.

There’s been cool “scary” moments all over, sure. But that episode makes me cringe.

35. CmdrR. - October 31, 2007

It’s pretty scary that Threshold still plays in re-runs.

Genesis is full of fun boo-scares.

36. Jackson Roykirk - October 31, 2007

#34, RetroWarbird:

The episode was ‘Frame of Mind’, from season 6.

37. CmdrR. - October 31, 2007

Is Ann Rice credited at all for Sub Rosa? She should be.

38. NCC-73515 - October 31, 2007

dark frontiers (voy). seven watching the assimilation of an entire culture – remember the screams? the assimilation chamber? the guy she holds before he is assimilated?
another scene that scared the hell out of me was in “identity crisis” – the holodeck record scene with the strange shadow on the wall…

39. Tjats - October 31, 2007

Wow, “Night Terrors” got the shaft. That was the first episode I thought of. The scene with Crusher seeing all the dead bodies sitting up still haunts me. But “Catspaw?” They weren’t even trying to be scary on that one. :-)

40. Andy Patterson - October 31, 2007

The lights of Zetar with the creepy woman’s voice. It was like the Exorcist to me.

41. Dennis Bailey - October 31, 2007

I think “What Are Little Girls Made Of?” would be on my list.

42. The NCC Factor - October 31, 2007

Genesis was the most terrifying when I watched it, I had nightmares that night! But Schisms was also scary, I started feeling faint I sware.

43. ety3 - October 31, 2007

I always thought the best villains on Voyager were the Vidiians – the organ harversters. They had a couple of creepy episodes, plus that really creepy makeup.

44. Jörg - October 31, 2007

Right, “Faces” is scary, when Sulan steals Durst’s face.

45. I AM THX-1138 - October 31, 2007

I think “Fistful of Data’s” was one of the scarier episodes. I mean, Brent Spiner in a dress. Creepy.

46. Noleuser - October 31, 2007

WHAT ABOUT THAT EPISODE WHERE GEORDI TURNS INTO A GLOWING BLUE THING! AHH!

47. T Negative - October 31, 2007

Great list!! I have to agree with a lot of people here that Night Terrors and Frame of Mind should be on the list.

When I was a kid Galt from Gamesters of Triskelion kind of freaked me out, there was something creepy about him back then.

48. Noleuser - October 31, 2007

Hey guys there’s in interesting article at aintitcool about the star trek script that preceded JJ’s!

49. TJ Trek - October 31, 2007

This is what makes Star Trek great. The format allows for straight up comedy, drama, horror, and plain old sci-fi.

50. TJ Trek - October 31, 2007

What about the riker episode where his mind is getting screw with. Is in a play is he in an assain assylum. When I was younger, hat episode scared h sh** out fof me. Yah and schism too. The other ones i;ve seen off the list, not soo much.

51. The Vulcanista - October 31, 2007

I got a personal grudge against “Man Trap.” That was the episode that made my mother forbid me from watching Star Trek during its original run. >:-(

Peace. Live long and prosper.
The Vulcanista }:-|

52. Kyle Nin - October 31, 2007

#50: See #36.

#46: That’s “Identity Crisis” from Season 4.

53. I AM THX-1138 - October 31, 2007

Chain of Command. That was scary. Patrick Stewart was naked in that one. No glute tone. Blech.

54. Little Rebellions » Happy Halloween - October 31, 2007

[...] Also, for the fellow nerds out there, TrekMovie has a great rundown of the top 10 scary Star Trek episodes from the entire run of the franchise. I’d recommend seeing every single one of the episodes they’ve mentioned – most of them are good examples of Trek’s ability to be more than flying around in space. [...]

55. Cyberziggy - October 31, 2007

Encounter At Farpoint… when Wesley Crusher opened his mouth for the first time.

56. Tony - October 31, 2007

Other “scarry” items:

TNG – Realm of Fear – “creatures” in the transporter
TNG – Aquiel – Only because of the life-sucking morphic creature
TOS – Omega Glory – the notion of being decrystalized is somewhat scarry
VOY – Threshold – for all the wrong reasons
VOY – Scorpion – 8472 gave me the heebie-jeebies at first
DS9 – Reckoning – Kira and Jake posessed by prophets
ENT – Extinction – Archer and Hoshi become creatures
TOS – Tholian Web – I always thought those Tholians were spooky looking

57. Tony - October 31, 2007

Oh yeah… TOS – Deadly Years – turning old before your time unless you get SCARED!!! Love it!

TNG – Where No Man Has Gone Before – had elements of scare in it with the crew’s imagination running wild and Picard stepping off the turbolift into the zooming starfield.

58. OR Coast Trekkie - October 31, 2007

“The higher, the fewer!”

Oh wait, this is creepy-scary, not “Oh crap, TNG has jumped the shark” scary. Although Screech as that bubble head thing was kinda fightening…

59. Dunsel Report - October 31, 2007

Is anyone else afraid of the transporter accident from The Motion Picture?

60. Cox of Seagulls - October 31, 2007

Yeah, the transporter bit scared me a bit as a child. Or rather, the screams did.

61. JeFF - October 31, 2007

Uhh… yeah, Night Terrors?!?

When Beverly was doing her analysis of the corpses from the Brattain… that FREAKED me OUT when they sat up all around her. Granted, I was 11 years old, but still… this episode is well worthy of the list.

62. Izbot - October 31, 2007

Ugh. Night Terrors was anything but scary. Well, it was scary that it was even made. That awful Ron Jones score! It’s so annoying I can’t even think about the episode without getting a headache…

63. Kyle Nin - October 31, 2007

62: “Night Terrors” gave me nightmares after I watched it. Caused especially by that whole unsettling dream that Troi had with the “eyes in the dark”.

I didn’t really find anything from TOS to be particularly scary. Not like nightmare-scary, anyway.

64. manuel.davidoff - October 31, 2007

ent: impulse seems like, resident evil… really it’s a sux episode

65. NCC-73515 - October 31, 2007

re 59, 60: “what we got back didn’t live long…”

66. Jamie - October 31, 2007

Which was the VOY episode with the invisible aliens doing experiments on the crew?

That one freaked me out pretty good.

67. Richard Daystrom - October 31, 2007

What about ” Spock’s Brain ” That was scary enough making me realize that the scripts they were using were getting close to “Lost In Space”

68. catchupwiththesun - October 31, 2007

#66 I believe you are thinking ‘scientific method’ from the fourth season.

schisms is right where it belongs. That scene in the holodeck terrified me when i was a kid. genesis also scared the heck out of me. the worf creature was downright frightening at age 6.

69. TexCee - October 31, 2007

“Schisms” gave me the creeps. May be the scariest of all. Also love “Masks” where Data starts morphing into various personalities and the ship is transformed into a sort of Mayan temple. Great creepy, atmospheric music!

70. Sxottlan - November 1, 2007

I’m real surprised Night Terrors isn’t on here. It’s about the scariest episode of any Trek imho. The scene where the ensign hears something moving below decks on the ship and then of course the morgue scene. Nothing grandiose, just very simple and very creepy.

I’d also vote for Enterprise’s Strange New World. It depends on being more psychologically disturbing than gory and it goes a long way. The simple ghost story Travis tells at the campfire and how later he sees NX-01 crew members walking in the distance and ignoring him.

Same goes for Voyager’s One. I love how we grow increasingly unsure how real every thing is. One of my favorite under-rated episodes.

71. Kyle Nin - November 1, 2007

#66: That’s the Season 4 episode “Scientific Method”.

Another VOY episode that I think should have been mentioned is the Season 4 episode “Revulsion”. That’s the one with the psychotic hologram.

72. Randall - November 1, 2007

I was a kid when the original series first aired, though I caught it mainly in its first syndication run in the very early Seventies. I distinctly remembered being creeped out by several of the episodes… particularly “Devil in the Dark.” (the Horta).

But I clearly recall, at that young age, being most creeped out by “The Menagerie,” “Where No Man Has Gone Before” and “The Man Trap.” The overall reason, I think (though each episode has its own spooky flavor) is because these scripts seemed to carry with them an air of “The Outer Limits”…. (with “The Menagerie” it’s more than just a vague impression). Perhaps it was because these three scripts were formulated so early in Star Trek’s evolution—the two pilots and one of the first scripts produced (first to air). Maybe the memory of “The Outer Limits” was still fresh in the minds of Roddenberry and the other writers… or maybe it was just the flavor of the times. All I know is, there was a tremendous quality of eerie-ness to the Talosians, as well as some real terror in Pike’s battle with the Neanderthal-like Kalar… and overall an air of menace and nightmare-like fear in that episode (some of this even bled over into the “Menagerie” framing story—Mendez’ disappearance at the end—he was just an illusion—was particularly jarring). Similarly, in “Where No Man…” the air of nightmarish menace was there—and the horror of seeing a normal character (Mitchell) transformed into a terrifying, demonic figure, with glowing eyes… creepy.

73. Etha Williams - November 1, 2007

Let’s not forget “Violations”…not really scary in a horror-movie type way, but frightning in its own way.

74. Ives - November 1, 2007

This was a fun site to find, and a great list. The Best of Both Worlds stands out for me, because of the brilliant concept and execution of the Borg. The unstoppable, merciless nature of those cubes. The way they chased the Enterprise down, held it with tractor beams and began to slice it up. It is a bit like the menace in the Terminator movies; a superior, artificially intelligent malevolent enemy that is after you, specifically you. And if they catch you, the awaiting fate seems worth than death. It was very well done, and I still remember the incredible tension I felt watching those episodes for the first time.

75. Izbot - November 1, 2007

Again with the Night Terrors?! Troi suspended by wires–“Where are you?!” So awful! We already knew so much about the TNG characters by the time this episode arrived it was a foregone conclusion in my mind that when we found out what really terrified Picard it would involve becoming Borg again but no! Instead he’s afraid of the turbolift’s ceiling! The alltime worst TNG episodes: ‘Home Soil’, ‘Shades of Gray’ and ‘Night Terrors’.

76. Sxottlan - November 1, 2007

I’d think people could be afraid of more than one thing. Claustrophobia would be pretty common.

77. Hon. David Kulessa - November 2, 2007

Ah, the bit with the shadow in Identity Crisis was another one that freaked me out. That’s the point where I’d say “OKAY COMPUTER, TURN THIS SHIT OFF” and run away.

-TGP-

78. pinky - November 2, 2007

Not even a mention of TOS Miri.

Definitely my vote for scariest ST episode of all time.

79. Andy Patterson - November 2, 2007

Creepy Michael J. Pollard is reason enough to be scared for me. And the ugly grups.

80. I Like Voyager - January 1, 2008

Scientific Method – Voyager: Janeway sitting down for coffee with a myriad of crude needles sticking out of her skull. Creepy…

81. Yeah - July 4, 2009

Cant belive, this episode isnt mentionend ST ENT Season 3×16 Doctors Orders is the scariest episode bedies Voyagers Episode One 4×25, that i have ever seen, tng has some creepy episodes specially Night Terrors, but check out Enterprise:Doctors Orders specially when Hoshi steps out of the Shower!

82. Flu-Bird - July 26, 2009

WOLF IN THE FOLD and CATSPAW were both written by horror writter ROBERT BLOCH and THE LIGHTS OF ZETAR was written by SHERI LEWIS and the STAR TREK tng episode NIGHT TERRORISTS finding the star ship USS BRITAIN with all but one person dead and everybody having those things happening to them

83. Flu-Bird - July 28, 2009

The scarists thing about the SALT VAMPIRE in MANTRAP is that it can make itself look like someone you trust like a parent a freind and girl or boyfreind and its got those suction cup things on its hands which leaves its victims with big red splotches

84. Flu-Bird - July 28, 2009

The episode CATSPAW those part wit the three witches still gives me cold chills

85. Flu-Bird - July 30, 2009

GALILEO SEVEN the planet TARUS II those creepy gorilla creatures they carried spears that looked lie telephone poles huge sheilds and were imune to phaser stun

86. Flu-Bird - July 30, 2009

NIGHT TERRORS it would make great showing on HALLOWEEN along with CATSPAW and WOLF IN THE FOLD

87. Flu-Bird - August 29, 2009

NIGHT TERRORS when RIKER waking up with the snakes in his bed of when DR CRUSHER is in the morgue and those bodies are are sitting up and how everyone on the USS BRATTAIN had died in someway like one baricated in their cabin surrounded with phasers as if they were afraid something was comming

88. Flu-Bird - September 19, 2009

CATSPAW those witches and that erie wailing still gives me the chills when i watch this episode

89. Flu-Bird - September 19, 2009

THOLIAN WEB when they find the USS DEFIANT with everybody dead and when McCoy puts his hand through the dead body and the table then everybody on the USS ENTERPRISE keep seeing CAPTIAN KIRK materialising every now and then like UHURA in her cabin in the ENGINE ROOM and finaly on the BRIDGE

90. Flu-Bird - September 25, 2009

THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE i mean aboard the simily deserted USS CONSTELLATION and COMADOR DECKERS last moments when he comenders the shuttlecraft and takes it into the doomsday macine.DEVIL IN THE DARK the HORTA could come right through solid rock and the planet of JANIS VII is no place for a vacation

91. Dustin Gervais - September 9, 2010

I’m surprised ‘Skin of Evil’ (NG) wasn’t even mentioned. The episode where Yar was killed by Armus. Gave me nightmares for a week growing up.

92. ChuckUp - November 1, 2010

Am I the only one freaked out by the transporter accident in Star Trek The Motion Picture? I was about 5-6 when I saw it in the theater and and still like the movie but couldn’t watch (or hear) that scene until I was about 30. Now it just looks goofy. But kinda cool.

93. Schisms not scary, but.. - February 8, 2011

First Contact was much scarier than Schisms. When the Borg quietly slide behind crew members and inject them with nanotubules.. also where you see Human skin being replaced by Borg, and ocular implants inserted into them..

Schisms isn’t scary. The Star Trek Voyager episode where the whole crew decomposes is much scarier. At the start Chakotay strokes his hair but it all falls out, then Neelix changes colour.. before you know it the whole crew is aging rapidly, then people fall ill. Only at the end do you find out what’s causing the decomposition and by then it’s too late…
– also the best plot twist of any Trek episode I’ve seen!

(cant remember the name..)

94. Justin - January 14, 2012

Maybe I’m the only one who ever thought of this, but I thought the whole idea of “macrocosm” was pretty scary.

95. AmbiguousG - January 21, 2012

I know I’m probably the only one who thinks this, but I found the fake God of Sha Ka Ree from Star Trek V to be a bit scary.

Think about it: In spite of all the cliches (God looking like Santa, eyes shooting lightning/lasers, etc.), wouldn’t it be intimidating to face him, especially that part before the Klingons show up and blast him (those glowing eyes keep me up at night sometimes)?
