Not sure if he's loved, but I personally can't stand Archer. He's arrogant, rude and keeps interfering with things that are none of his business.

It's significant that Spock specifically asks McCoy to attend his marriage ceremony in "Amok Time", showing that he considers the doctor to be as close a friend as Kirk.

Re: Loved Trek Characters You Just Don't Like

Does anyone else notice that Spock is not a "disliked" character ANYWHERE on this thread? Universally loved Spock!

Anyway, as for disliked characters: Nu-Uhura and occasionally Captain Pompous Windbag Picard. They just cast the Nu-Scottie wrong, funny as Simon Pegg is.

I think it's against the law to hate Spock.

Anyone who hates Spock doesn't deserve Star Trek.

Spock is Trek, more than any other character, in my opinion. Spock's been the constant in the franchise, from "The Cage" to STID.

It's also punishable by 400 hours of watching Spock-themed episodes.

Re: Loved Trek Characters You Just Don't Like

When I first saw Spock in 1966, I thought he was the dumbest looking alien I'd ever seen. This was because I'd been spoiled by 1963's The Outer Limits.

Re: Loved Trek Characters You Just Don't Like

I think Spock is probably the most popular and iconic character of Star Trek. He's a great character and there really wasn't anyone like him when Trek came out. He is absolutely integral to Star Trek, at least TOS. So yeah I don't understand anyone who doesn't like him (although I like McCoy more )

Granted I never understood character hate to begin with (probably why I should have stayed out of this thread lol).

There are characters I am indifferent too, but I can't say I hate any character. If I hate a character it more has to do with the writing than that character. And if I don't like the writing it is usually for more than one character.

We think alike. I agree with every word you said except McCoy. I like him and Spock equally.

Spock's all right. I do think he gets way more hype than he delivers on though. I'm talking about Nimoy Spock. Quinto Spock is just meh.

I don't think several of these qualify as "Loved Trek Characters"...

Ask the thousands of J/C`s.

I wouldn`t say "hate", but I don`t like so much:
O`Brien, Tasha Yar, Troi, Kes, Chekov, Quark, Sulu
