Re: Who is the scariest Star Trek villian?

While not "evil" per se, rather so desperate that they've lost all perspective, but the Vidiians are uber creepy. Although similar to the Borg in that they're going to USE you, somehow losing you individuality is a few degrees less scary than knowing you're about to be dissected and your organs harvested.

Re: Who is the scariest Star Trek villian?

You know, at first I saw "The Holodeck" and started to chuckle, but then I thought more about it and no matter how much the rest of the villains on that list get dumbed down over and over till they are nothing more than a minor annoyance.. On the other hand the holodeck proved to be a foe they could never fully dumb down, even until the last season of DS9 (they) held crew members in the grip of peril on at least a season by season basis since the early days of TNG.. And we all know that no matter how much holotechnology evolves it will probably always be able to be zapped by some plasma storm, power overload, emerging AI, so on and so on. Just the sheer amount of what seemed like insignificant things that could suddenly cause the holodeck safetys to vanish like clothes at a betazoid wedding and the characters to all suddenly turn to homicidal maniacs.

Truly such longevity of unstoppable threat must make them, the holodecks, the greatest ST villains ever!


And to those who say Q.. Remember he is the savior of the Federation* after all, and the one who truly brought Picard's abilities as a Captain and a human being to heights above and beyond any that he would have achieved with out him.

*You know, since they conveniently forgot about the Borg coming

Re: Who is the scariest Star Trek villian?

I'd definitely say the TNG Borg tied with the Vidiians. On an individual level, I'd say Gul Dukat, simply because of his body count...

Section 31 is also pretty damn scary.

Admiral Cartwright and Admiral Marcus.

That the end of the world will come not because we have soldiers who think they're doing evil but because they think pushing the big red button will be our salvation from darkness.

Don't forget Admiral Leyton from Homefront/Paradise Lost.

Re: Who is the scariest Star Trek villian?

The Vidiians brought a level of visceral body horror that I hadn't seen before in Trek, so I vote for them.

Not really a villain at all, but how about Kevin Uxbridge? One stray thought, and an entire species is wiped out. That's got to be the record for mass murder in Trek.

If there was ever a Star Trek slasher film, the Vidiians would have to be the villains.
