Re: Loved Trek Characters You Just Don't Like

The Ferengi and Garak were all that made DS9 tolerable. Quark was a breath of fresh air from the growing sanctimoniousness that permeated the TNG era. Quark was a great outsider looking at the Federation. Sometimes very trenchantly correct about the Federation as in the Root Beer analogy. It was something true about the franchise as a whole and not simply as a plot point in an episode.
Well I do love Garak. And I guess Quark can make some interesting points about the Federation but the actual character of Quark I just do not like. And personally I think Garak should've been the bigger character and Quark the smaller. I found Garak had an interesting backstory and he could've said all the same stuff Quark did about the Federation.
