I dunno, Vash and Picard never seemed a good fit to me. She's too loose and wild for the calm and refined Picard.
That's what made them an interesting couple.

It did show as well as much as they argued in the two episodes they were together in.
News flash--Real couples do that.
Jennifer Hetrick and Patrick Stewart were engaged for a while during TNG's run.
But of course he cast her aside.

She's too old for Patrick's taste.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

My own few pennies...

Most relationships on all the Treks didn't ring "true" for me. More, those that did start to feel real went off the rails in terms of believability. One such was Amanda/Sarek. Her hissy fit at the end of "Journey to Babel" struck a very wrong chord, although up until then it felt very real. Was as if the production decided to staple on a slice of 50s sitcom onto the end, just so they could get a line everyone wanted (understandably, the line is great--my objection lies with the setup).

Never, ever saw any chemistry between Rider/Troi. Nor the two characters that in theory had captured Scotty's heart. Kirk's squeeze-of-the-week had all the emotional depth of a James Bond tryst. The "relationship" between Picard and Lwaxana felt fun, but came across as parsecs closer to a kind of friendship than anything like real romance. Other relationships, like Janeway's with her boyfriend (okay there was no time to develop that) and Sisko's with Yates, felt forced.

But the ones I did believe in, did feel touched a note of actual romantic chemistry...

Paris/Torres - because it seemed to spontaneously grow out of two flawed characters' interaction over years.
Picard/Vash - not because this was a Great Love, but because these two ended up with a strong connection, even though they'd be miserable married to one another.
Jadzia/Worf - for much the same reason as Paris/Torres. They worked with each other, got to know each other, and I totally accepted these two felt something real.
Spock/Uhura - heresy I know, but seems to me there was always a specific connection these two felt in the original timeline, and an alternate history if they'd met under different circumstances this seemed possible. Don't like how it played out in STID, though.

Special mention for Odo/Kira that almost made sense to me, for the Doctor's infatuation with Seven, and Bones' feelings for his old flame Nancy.

Yep. During the 3rd and 4th seasons, so while they were shooting Qpid.

I actually liked Troi & TOM Riker, better than Troi and Will Riker, at least during the series. In the movies, however, Riker\Troi was actually one of the few good things about the last two movies.
All of this. Also, Spock and Kirk. Not a couple in that sense but their bromance is epic for me.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Rom/Leeta are adorable.

Odo/Kira, but only because I like Odo and he was happy for a while at that time (and I loved the part when he first kisses her). I'm not tremendously fond of Kira, though.

Yeah, that's pretty much my feelings on that.
