Best Series Friendship
 
Ok, this has probably already been done, but it never hurts to revisit topics every once in a while :)

In all five series, which is the best friendship (of those listed that is)?

As much as I detest O'Brien I voted for the Bashir/O'Brien friendship because I do think it turned out the best, especially considering the rough start between the two men.

Absolutely Bashir and O'Brien.

I loved Kira and Jadzia too.

This will sound like a cliche', but you can't beat the Big Three: Kirk, Spock, and McCoy.

Those three would do anything for each other. They had their disagreements, but in the end, they were completely loyal. Even though Spock and McCoy had their "feud", when push came to shove, they were there for each other.

Have to go with O'Brien/Bashir.

The Bashir/O'Brien friendship was the most real one.

Kirk/Spock followed by Sisko/Jadzia Dax.

A billion fanfic authors can't be wrong - it's Kirk and Spock.

(although the idea of them as lovers is one I could really do without)

All we ever saw Kirk and Spock doing was playing chess.

O'Brien and Bashir drank, fought the Alamo, played darts, discussed women..

But Kirk and Spock were working with a huge culture gap and were friends. Bashir and O'Brien were from very similar cultures.

The Triad of Kirk, Spock and Bones, followed by Bashir and O'Brien. Honourable mention to Tom Paris and Harry Kim,

Oh believe me I'm all for Kirk and Spock and their deep bond. I think it's a soulmate kind of thing that transcends regular friendships. But what we saw on screen of Bashir and O'Brien was the stuff of human friendships that most people desire. Buddies, comrades, confidants, playmates.. and good point that there would be less of those activities because of cultural differences with Kirk and Spock.

Bashir/O'Brien. Two complete opposites who find common ground in their situation. And they way it was written/acted, it seemed like a real friendship.

Bashir/O'Brien. I teared up during their little montage in the finale.
