Garak. He enjoys dusting off his spy skills so much, it would be a shame to deprive him the pleasure.

Would you rather buy a weapon from the Minosians (the makers of the Echo Papa 607), or Bang-Bang (the makers of the sweetest little automatic in the world)?

Re: Would you rather?

Going with the Bang-Bang: how could the Echo Papa not take out Yar? Besides, the notion of the learning weapon in fiction seems contrived: it always throws out a few gimmies.

Would you rather have Worf deliver your first born or organize your son's/daughter's coming of age ceremony, complete with pain sticks?

Coming of age ceremony with pain sticks. The kid will appreciate how good he/she has it, and if I need to bring him/her in line, I can threaten to have Worf babysit.

Would you rather "share your pain" with Sybok or endure the prison memory torture O'brien did in Hard Time?

Share pain. It wasn't torture, and it wasn't traumatic. And as McCoy made clear, it didn't necessarily mean mind control.

Would you rather assist Julian Bashir in an assignment in his "James Bond" program, or assist Garak in an assignment for the Obsidian Order?

I'd rather help Bashir. Garak strikes me as the type to tie up loose ends and would slit my throat after I helped him on a mission.

Would you rather have to out think your way out of a temporal anomaly or out think your way out of a spatial anomaly?

Temporal. I think I'd have a better chance of coming out of it alive.

Would you rather be friends with Trip Tucker or Geordi LaForge?

Geordi, though it's almost too close to call. He seems to hang out with the ordinary crew more often.

Would you rather your engineer be an Ornaran or a Pakled?

A Pakled, they seem to be smarter.

Would you rather serve under Captain Benjamin Maxwell or Captain Rudolph Ransom?

Hmm tricky... I reckon Maxwell because, for the crew, it turned out better

MULTIPLE CHOICE MAYHEM
You're on a Starship (Enterprise or Defiant depending on who you pick) in a battle situation and the captain along with other senior staff member are injured or otherwise engaged. Who would you rather take command: Troi, Bashir, Beverly, Chekov, Odo or Uhura? (ignoring their rank and whether they should be doing something else (e.g doctoring, steering)

Bashir. With his augmented abilities, he'll quickly grasp duties outside of his field.

Continuing with that theme,

You're on a Starship in a battle situation and the captain along with other senior staff members are injured or otherwise engaged. Who would you rather take command: Geordi, O'Brien, Paris, The Doctor, Scotty, or Bones?

Chekov. He's qualified. He was XO of the Reliant and filled in nicely for Kirk in ST 5.

Crusher would be second being functional, followed by Bashir, Uhura, Odo and Troi in that order.

Would you rather join Section 31, the Obsidian Order or the Tal Shiar?

Section 31. I'd wanna side with the more realistic humans in the UFP. :P Although, I don't really like any black ops type group.

Time to appeal to people's vanity...:P

Would you rather be the man or woman that builds the new capital of a UFP that now spans the entire Milk Way Galaxy or would you rather take the Enterprise-Z and be the first captain to explore the Andromeda Galaxy?

Put be on 1701-Z, any post. I'd love to see another Galaxy.

Would you rather be posted in administrative capacity (any rank below admiral) to one of the luxurious core worlds (Earth, Vulcan, Andoria, etc.) for life, or command a mission to a yet to be admitted world, far from the core, for two years?

On a core world. I could always vacation to other worlds.

Would you rather serve on a starship or space station?

A starship, I'd rather explore.

Since my last question was skipped, i'll repost it.
