2. The Enterprise goes to a visit a remote outpost of scientists, who are all perfectly fine.

3. Some of the crew uses the holodeck, and it works properly.

4. The crew of The Enterprise discovers a totally new life-form, which later turns out to be rather a well-known old life-form just wearing a funny hat.

5. The crew of The Enterprise is struck by a mysterious plague, for which the only cure can be found in the well-stocked Enterprise sick bay.

6. The captain has to make a difficult decision about a less advanced people, which is made a great deal easier by the Star Fleet Prime Directive

7. The Enterprise successfully ferries an alien VIP from one place to another without a serious incident.

8. An enigmatic being composed of pure energy attempts to interface with the Enterprise's computer, only to find out it has forgotten to bring the right leads.

9. A power surge is rapidly and correctly diagnosed as a faulty capacitor by the highly trained and competent engineering staff.

10.The Enterprise is captured by a vastly superior alien intelligence which does not put it on trial.

26. A routine mission does not go wrong.

14. The Enterprise is involved in a bizzare time-warp experience which is in some way unconnected with the late twentieth century.

19. Spock (or Data) is fired from his high-ranking position for not being able to understand the most basic nuances of about one in three sentences that anyone says to him.

How about one on starwars?

The good guys face a bad guy army that doesn't have an immensely stupid weaknesses (small port that's just big enough for a torp to go through and destroy entire ship, no chamber leading to faulty power block that the bad guy KNEW was faulty, no wide open entrance into most important section of the flagship that controls the entire bad guy army,e.t.c)

Speaking of x-wings attacking the enterprise... Starwars is owned by fighters whereas Startrek is owned by starships... it would be entertaining to see a mix of the two
