If one episode from the original 1960s TV series of Star Trek was to be re-made into a full length, big screen movie, which one would you choose?

"All our yesterdays" would be nice, as it had a lot of snow and ice in that wilderness where Spock and McCoy were sent to via a time portal.
Another good one would be the "City on the edge of forever", where the trio go through another time portal on this alien planet and end up in 1920's Earth...

I forget the name of the episode, but the one where they are fighting these things on the walls of this place and one attacks spock and attaches itself to his nervous system and at the end they expose spock to light to get rid of it and spock is blinded (or so the captain thinks) until they find out its only temporary.

The name of that ep is Operation: Annihilate! :D
The Gamesters of Triskelion is an ep that might be interesting to see on the big screen.Or Return of the Archons.

Return of the Archons would be a good one, from what little of it I can still remember. Shore Leave - an idyllic adventure playground, made out to look real where McCoy gets killed - is another memorable one that could be fleshed-out and re-jigged into an enjoyable movie.
Using virtual reality, it may even become possible one day to re-create Kirk, Spock and McCoy in their original spirit and form...

The Doomsday Machine There is so much more they could have done with that story. Or the one about the people who live in the clouds ...?
Of course tomorrow I might have a different answer.

The Enterprise Incident
Seeming tense and erratic, Captain Kirk takes the U.S.S. Enterprise into Romulan space and the ship is immediately surrounded by Romulan warships. Kirk and Spock beam aboard the Romulan flag-ship and confront the Romulan Commander, a woman. Kirk explains that his ship entered Romulan territory because of equipment malfunction. Spock, however, denounces this explanation, saying Kirk ordered them here, due to his reduced mental stability. This, not surprisingly, enrages the Captain. The Romulan Commander orders the U.S.S. Enterprise be taken to the Romulan base. Scotty, placed in command of the starship, refuses. McCoy is beamed aboard the flag-ship to tend Kirk, who has become irrational to the point of violence. When he arrives, Kirk attacks Spock who reacts, without thinking, by using the Vulcan death grip, killing Kirk.
McCoy returns to the U.S.S. Enterprise with Kirk's body, while Spock remains on the Romulan ship. Unknown to the Romulan Commander, this has all been a ploy to sneak the officers on board and steal the Romulan cloaking device. After Kirk's body has been removed to his ship, the Romulan Commander begins to try and entice Spock into defecting to the Romulan side.
Disguised as a Romulan, Kirk returns to the Romulan ship and steals the vessel's cloaking device and returns with it to the U.S.S. Enterprise. When the Commander discovers the theft, she feels betrayed and in retaliation decides to execute Spock. The Vulcan pretends to confess to her and ultimately stalls until Scotty is able to install the cloaking device on board the U.S.S. Enterprise. Spock is beamed back aboard the starship, but since the Romulan Commander was standing near him, she is also beamed aboard.
The Romulan Subcommander, now in charge of the flag-ship, gives chase, ordered by his commander to destroy the Federation ship. Fortunately, the newly-installed cloaking device works and the U.S.S. Enterprise makes good her escape, with the Romulan Commander on board a their prisoner.
