Aside from the weak "Badda bing, badda bang" episode which was just frankly ridiculous....I didn't dislike him as a background thing but when they brought him to the foreground as a character, it just didn't really appeal to me at all

I never really understood the point
One of my very favourite episodes of my favourite Trek series. A great fun homage to Oceans 11 and Robin And The Seven Hoods type movies. If you can't enjoy a swingin' caper movie there's no hope for you.

And as for Vic - his point was to give them a bit of scope and variety in the storytelling. Darren was brilliant in the role and 'Vic' episodes were often the most heartfelt and touching - Vic was the counselor on the station...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
