Though the thread title initially had me thinking this was going to be about how many children were produced.
That's what I thought, too.

For some great Original Series fanfic, check out the Valjiir Continuum!

Surprised Worf isn't in the top ten with his amount of screen time. Also surprised that Chakotay is as high as he is
Although he may have had few lines of spoken dialog, Michael Dorn probably had numerous acting cues that were not captured by transcripts taken from CC. Moreover, the whole crew was seldom along for the ride on DS9 as it was on TNG. Almost every episode of TNG required the full crew to sit on the bridge whether they were essential to the story or not. The two main characters of an episode could be isolated in a runabout, and even the Defiant was seldom manned by the entire DS9 crew.

Very, very interesting. Can this program also count words/lines for single characters?

Could be fun to see how many times:

- Bones said "He's dead (Jim)"
- Picard said "Engage"
- Uhura said "Hailing frequencies open"
- Scotty said "She can't take much more!"
- Harry said "Can't get a lock"
- The word "interference" was (mis)used.

and more hilarious one-liners.
McCoy said variations of he's/she's dead 19 times.
Picard commands engage 81 times.
Uhura makes 24 mentions of hailing, most of which are variations of the "Hailing frequencies open, sir."
For the Scotty one, it's difficult. I split everything by the word "more," but only found just one instance where he said "much more." This might be one of those things like "Beam me up, Scotty" that are over-exaggerated.
Harry says variations of "can't get a lock" about 15 times. This only includes the times where he couldn't get a lock, rather than when he could.
I don't know what you refer to by interference.
