The whole episode "The Angriest Angel" was one Crowning Moment of Awesome for Colonel T.C.McQueen, but finally taking down Chiggy von Richthofen - an alien space combat ace in a nigh-indestructible fighter, while the Colonel Bad Ass himself is not even considered combat capable due to inner ear damage - still makes one cheer with deep, deep satisfaction.
McQueen: This one's for you, Winslow!
Made even more awesome when you remember that, in order to be considered mission-capable, McQueen had to have his artificial inner ear removed (he'd had one implanted after being wounded in combat, and the stresses of flying a fighter would cause the implant to explode). So, in the battle against Chiggy von Richthofen, he was flying with absolutely no inner ear!
Even yet more awesome, he did it with no support from the Saratoga, and with conventional weaponry after Chiggy von Richthofen had already shrugged off a freakin' superweapon that had been designed solely and specifically to kill him. All while listening to Beethoven's "Funeral March", no less.
