Re: 'Scott the Dick' characters in TV
^ I didn't see Q as a "Scott the Dick" kind of character. Sure, he was a pain, but I did find some depth in him. Especially in episodes like "Death Wish" and even "Q and the Grey". About the only time I saw him as a "Scott" was on DS9...
How about pretty much everyone in the Alliance from Firefly
