Alexander's change in perspective was annoying, especially seeing as it wasn't actually necessary; the story of Sons and Daughters wasn't dependent on Alexander having a change of heart. It's wartime, and a rather unambiguous war at that, where the stakes are massive - either defend yourself against the Dominion, or become vassals of the Founders. The idea that Alexander might enlist for the duration of the war therefore makes sense; they didn't have to make his earlier character arc pointless by seeming to suggest that he now wants to be a warrior after all.

He could easily have told Worf: "I still have no intention of being a "good Klingon" and I still don't care for fitting into your culture - I'm just here because I'm helping with the war effort, and this is a just war. That's all".
Great point. Although I liked the Dukat/Ziyal/Kira storyline, I blame that episode's drop in quality in that 7 episode arc -- as I do the Section 31/Bashir/Obrien episode in the final 10 episode arc -- on the poor writing of David Weddle and Bradley Thompson. Just awful writers. Even on BSG, I liked their work least -- until Jane Espenson's arrival.

I guess it's because I was a tween or whatever when Alexander's arc on TNG was taken more seriously, but, at the least, it was interesting to have Worf deal with this and have a Klingon who wasn't a warmonger.

Re: your top five (low five?) least favourite characters

someone mentioned that blasted musical hologram... now he annoyed me so much I literally forgot all about him! He needs to go on my list... a lot worse than Winn. (Mainly because the character seemed to be such an strange add-on, nothing to do with the rest of the show, and I hate the kind of syrupy music he sings...

Actually I will say I was very fond of Winn in that every time she appeared on screen I wanted to strangle her - great acting!

Ezri I sort of liked but she could simply never replace Jadzia.

Joran was great in the second episode he appeared! The second actor really gave him the kind of understated menace that could make you believe he'd killed in cold blood.

Oh, and I really didn't like the Female Founder... I'll have to extend my list...

Re: your top five (low five?) least favourite characters

1. O'Brien. Yes I can't stand him at all. There's just something about him that made me groan with frustration every time it was an O'Brien centric episode

2. Kieko.

3. Vic Fontaine. (Glad to see I'm not the only one that disliked him)

4. Mirror Universe Kira (and regular Kira too, but she wasn't as bad as her alternate persona)

5. Zek. Love the actor that played him, just couldn't get past how cartoonish he was.

I can't remember any kid on any Star Trek that didn't need a good slap.
Nog was the best because he actually became someone. Jake was obnoxious in later seasons, always laughing and making jokes. Wesley was incredibly naive and sugary. Charlie X was okay, I guess. But those kids in And the Children Shall Lead? Slap-worthy.

By 'The second episode he appeared' I pray you mean when he inhabited Sisko. If you mean that Ezri 'Vulcan murder' fiasco, that episode is 'Worst of series' bad.

Right up from the first scene where they're being so nice to this random stranger you know minutes in advance he's about to die, you know the episode is going to be 'Hammer on head' cheesy. Then the rest of the episode plays out like the worst writer on the Criminal Minds staff wrote a Silence of the Lambs sequel. Not only is there a Vulcan who believes that killing people on the basis of seeing pictures that express emotion is 'The logical thing to do', Joran somehow figures out he's a Vulcan simply based on seeing these pictures.

Every shot, every line of dialog, and every slice of plot logic in that episode is facepalm-vomitrocious. He seems less like a cold blooded killer, and more like the bad guy on a bad crime procedural.
