As far as I'm concerned, Rom was the worst character. I didn't care for him at all, the way he was written or portrayed, and if I ever watch Deep Space 9 again, I'm likely to skip every single scene he's in.
Wow this is also a ban. Rom was awesome. Nog was a bit questionable but not bad. Rom had his moments of being the most funny character on the show and had great character development.

Yeah, Rom was annoying sometimes, but he had some great scenes with Quark. "When you see how much your body's worth, you'll wish you'd died years ago!"

Now LEETA, on the other hand, was a million times worse than Ezri.

She had big boobies so she was okay in my book.

At least they were honest about why Leeta was around unlike other shows that try and justify characters in tight revealing clothing.

Leeta: I have brains!
Quark: Sure you do honey. That's why I hired you. Now eat up and take those "brains" where the customers can get a good and long look at them.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

The only Ezri episodes I don't like are the first one where she gets to the station, and the one with the vulcan serial killer.

At first it seemed like the writers knew they had so little time to develop her they had to shove her down our throats immediately, and that's how it felt after that episode. Then, ugh, that vulcan serial killer. That episode is terrible all the way through.

Starting out with the blatant 'frame the scene for obvious tragedy', then with Joran trying to Hannibal Lecter her by insisting that the fact that all the victims have emotional photos showing means that the killer is a vulcan, then '...It was the logical thing to do'. That episode is Threshold bad.

They did a generally good job with Ezri, but she wouldn't have worked well as a long term character since she has a job that has to use writearounds to participate in the action.

Ezri Dax is best Dax.

Vic Fontaine has to be my least favorite.
I liked him as a character (he showed that the sentience of holograms was a product of advancing tech, and that the Doctor on Voyager was not a special snowflake), and he wasn't too annoying.

But as a concept? Dumb. A holographic councilor might work...if there wasn't a real one right there! Plus, they used him way too much. One episode, maybe, and then the ending like they did. But several? No, especially not at that point in the show, and especially when they are focusing so hard on another cast member.

The only time Vic didn't make sense for me was Mirror-Vic, a real person, though that was just a setup for a joke.

At that point the writers had given up trying to make the Mirror Universe episodes make any kind of sense!

You got it wrong: Nog was awesome. Rom was a one-note character, a disgrace, a panto caricature.

Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

I think I just love Dax in general, I love Ezri! Not saying Ezri Dax is best Dax, but is very very good.

I also liked that little speech she gave to Worf on the truth about Klingons.
I love that little speech. It works even better because we've seen the truth of it over... what, 10 years by that point? And it was the sort of thing Jadzia or Curzon would never have said, so it had to be somebody "new."

I like Ezri too, although I kinda wish they had developed a romance between her and Jake.
Yes! I've been saying this since... whenever season 7 aired. '99, right? The Ezri/Bashir thing was nice enough but uninspired and too much "Bashir got her after all," the Ezri/Worf thing was just a bad idea (which they realized). But how fun would it have been for Ben to have to deal with Jake dating one of his closest confidants, and who'd probably seen Jake in diapers (now that could be awkwardly fun for the show). Plus, it would have given Jake something to do.

Don't be silly. Keiko was the most annoying character on DS9 by a long shot.
Oh no, you're one of those people?
