In my opinion it is, nobody comes
I initially detested Phlox, simply because he reminded me too much of Neelix
So, it wasn't just me then?
Although, I never hated Phlox, or Neelix. In fact, I've never hated a Star Trek character more than Trip. Luxwana Troi came close, but even SHE didn't annoy me simply by being onscreen the way Trip did.
