Re: Your Favorite ST Love Story!

Kirk/Keeler was my favorite.

Odo/Kira was good in parts but I could never get over the feeling that they were just thrown together because they were two series regulars. And early on it was just painful...the Odo/Kira/Shakaar triangle. His choosing his love for her over the wholeness of Great Link made the romance astonishing. But Odo and Kira as friends was much more believable for me. His reaction to her at the end of "Necessary Evil" is one of DS9's greatest moments.
Maltz: You said you would kill me. Kirk: I lied.

Re: Your Favorite ST Love Story!

That's a tough question, since love stories are certainly not Star Trek's strength. I think Garak's unrequited love for Bashir is my favorite of all time. Seriously.

I honestly don't think romance was one of Trek's greatest strengths. There isn't a single relationship in the history of the franchise that I ever found to be compelling. I think part of it is that so many of the relationships were aliens-of-the-week, or were written so inconsistently that there was no point in getting emotionally wrapped up (Picard/Crusher or Riker/Troi, who kept teasing the audience without any real advancement over the course of the series).

I agree. I used to like Tom and BElanna from voyager. but they got stale real quick. A real tv couple needs obsticles and a reason for the fan to root for them. the writer's of Star trek just didn't get it.

Spock and Leila Kalomi. I really feel for both of them.
