Toughest Star Trek Species
 
A poll generated from:
http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=215668

Who is the toughest Star Trek species?

The Metron, the Trelane, and the Q are left out for obvious reasons.

Toughest in what regard?

^In an all out confrontation, without alliances, who would come out on top.

^In a war or person-to-person confrontation?

^A war between species.

I voted Hirogen...in complete disregard for the rules of this poll. :p

You see, the word 'toughest' to me doesn't imply 'who would win a war', it suggests who would possess the physical and mental toughness to prevail.

Too many of the races mentioned are only formidable due to their tricks. The Founders are shape shifters [I see no real evidence of 'toughness' from them], the Doud...we know very little about, what we do know is they are reclusive explorers. [not 'tough'] The Borg are bad-ass due to their technology and fact that most of them are mindless drones.

The Prophets are god-like and frequently stand-offish.

So I vote the Hirogen. Who are frequently up for a fight, will relish it and have the physical and metal stature to continue it.

Whichever one the writers need to be stronger.

Humans. The power of the plot prevails.

You missed out Jem Hadar, that's who I would've voted.

I counted them as part of the Founder's technology.

It kinda does, considering that they're the creators and custodians of this universe.

I mean, it should be noted that every species or race on this list were fundamentally affected by humans in some form or shape, when in reality humanity would have been wiped out several times over, from invasion to plague to a mere finger snap. In the grand scheme of things, species' power levels are inconsistent across the board, and are written only to serve the plot and the goals of the writers (8472, for example).

Sorry, first thing I could think of was 'depends on how long you cook them for'. :rommie:

My initial reaction would have been the Douwd, since the one depicted seemed within the realm of Q-level power, but didn't seen omniscient like Q seem.

The Prophets also have Q-level ability, but seem to be able to manipulate time and space at least in a limited area (including sealing themselves off from the Alpha Quadrant and residing in the Worm hole), and there are more of them than the single Douwd that was encountered, so I would have to give it to them over the Douwd.
