Re: Who is the worst character in any of the trek series?

I will have to go with Riker on this one; he serves no purpose. On a much brighter note however, I will say that in in most series they did a superb job casting the doctor. As hated as "Enterprise" is; the doctor is just great as is the other much hated "Voyager" doctor.

Hmm... between Harry "Cardboard" Kim and Jonathan "Double Dumbass" Archer... gotta choose Archer. At least Harry's character flaws and screw ups were on a much smaller scale.

To make it harder to choose you must pick someone who was on the credits of a star trek show. I was torn between two and decided my least favourite is chakotay because his dialogue is poor in my opinion and i could never believe him as a maquis fighter.
TOS: Rand
TNG: Troi
VOY: Kes
DS9: Kai Winn
ENT: Archer (season 1)
Abrams Trek: Chekov

If it weren't just series/film regulars, it'd obviously be Vic Fontaine. But under these circumstances, Kes or Mayweather. Really not because they were totally unlikable (like Fontaine), but because they were basically complete blank slates.

Re: Who is the worst character in any of the trek series?

I'm torn between Chakotay, Neelix and Malcolm.

Hmm... Chakotay.

Edit: Oh, if Abrams Trek counts, then everybody in Abrams Trek not Kirk, Spock or Uhura. Worst casting ever. Other than those three the cast were treated as throwaway characters.

Wait, do you have a problem with the casting or the treatment of the characters? Very different things. I'd agree that there's not enough screen time for McCoy/Sulu/Chekov, but the casting is pretty awesome. and certainly by Into Darkness, Scotty is not treated as a throwaway.

Re: Who is the worst character in any of the trek series?

TOS: None. Only the main 3 were really and truly developed and they're all great. Put a gun to my head and I guess I say Chekov if only because I like him the least of the big 7.
TNG: Troi. Useless. At least Wesley did enough to get on your nerves. Troi is just irrelevant.
DS9: Jake. Again, mostly irrelevant and directionless for many seasons. It's sad when Nog blows you away as a character.
VOY: Janeway. Worst captain ever.
NuTrek: Scotty. Bad comic relief is grating. Kirk is a second if only b/c the writers have made him a caricature of Shatner's play on the character.

Harry was I believe fresh out of the academy, so being intelligent in some ways, yet clueless in others is somewhat understandable.

Archer on the other hand was selected for a high profile command, you would think that whoever starfleet selected would be the best commanding officer availible.

It kind of scary to think that maybe Archer was !!!!

Re: Who is the worst character in any of the trek series?

TOS: None, They all worked for me.
TNG: Alexander and Wesley. Alex was too wimpy (I wanted him to be a rambunctious kid) and Wes was too... ugh.
DS9: Jadzia. She didn't feel like she had multiple lives.
VOY: Torres and Chakotay. Whenever Torres gets mad it's her Klingon sides fault and Chakotay didn't feel like an Ex-Maquis, but more like Janeway's sidekick.
ENT: I liked Archer in the beginning, who went down hill after that. Hoshi was mostly useless, Mayweather had no story (other than the clipper ship thing), T'Pol needed to figure out if she was Vulcan or not. Trip was just off and Reed was a bore. Phlox and Porthos were the only characters I was ok with.

I was going to say that but if Wesley was more like Doogie Howser than he would be fine.

Why does everyone hate Wesley?

Am I the only one who was disappointed when he left TNG? :P
