Re: Favorite Vorta? If Any?

Weyoun, Keevan, and Kilana are all utterly amazing. Weyoun is my favorite, but I love all 3.

Weyoun 1-8 all were great

Keeven, totally dry sense of humor, loved it

Kilana, was probably the most "human" Vorta I saw

Yelgrun, was not he the back stabbing Vorta in Rocks and Shoals

The Vorta that was killed by the Ferengi and was programmed to walk but malfunctioned and kept on walking into the bulkhead..

The rest of the Vorta kind of faded into the background...
the vorta that was killed by the Ferengi was Keevan.

Yelgrun was the Iggy Pop character from the same episode. Keevan was the backstabber from Rocks and Shoals.

for someone who professes to like Keevan, you don't seem to know his character very well...

Re: Favorite Vorta? If Any?

I'm not sure... I really don't like the Vorta... horrid little creatures.
I think I like Kilana as a "person."

I liked Chris Shea, but only because of MF, if Keevan had just been in R&S... it would have been terrible!!

Weyoun (JC) did a good job, but I wouldn't have been opposed to seeing more of Borath.

I can't get over who many of them there are- 400 alone sent to Bajor... way too many Vorta... yuck!

Believe it or not, I didn't know much of Iggy Pop when he was cast as Yelgrum, so I can't say there was any stunt casting.
Ira Behr was a big fan of Iggy Pop/Iggy and the Stooges, and had pushed for Iggy to be cast earlier in "Past Tense, Part II"; Iggy was unavailable at the time and the part went instead to Clint Howard.

No, Yelgrun was the other Vorta in "The Magnificent Ferengi".

Weyoun tops the list definitely, but Yelgrun and Keevan are a very close joint second.

Re: Favorite Vorta? If Any?

The Vorta embody bureaucratic phonies. Kilana was slimey, too, you just bought into her pretense. Weyoun was the gold standard.

It was fun watching the contrast between blunt Cardassian arrogance and the Vorta's civil veneer.

For the couple of above posts- we've only met Weyoun 4-8 in DS9.
