Re: Who is the worst character in all of Star Trek main cast?

That's a lot of hate for Crusher.

I went with Troi. I don't hate the character by any means, but she's the most likely to get on my nerves in regards to any Star Trek series.

Harry Kim. What exactly was the point of this character, again? Seven years of nothing? How exciting. Poor Mayweather got the same treatment but at least he only suffered in the background for four years. Plus, I actually liked Mayweather a little more somehow.

Possibly the worst character was one that was flawlessly played by the actor, who was universally loved. What made him such a bad character was comments that grew more and more tiresome about one detail regarding that character that came up in nearly every episode of that series. And probably the worst epidsode of that series centered on this otherwise charming character, who is not on the poll list yet appeared in perhaps every episode of that series.

Who would that be?
Morn?
Morn? What's not to like? I was thinking of Porthos, and all the inane lines about cheese.

I like Morn too, but you seemed to be pointing to him.

No ENT? Archer and T'Pol would be my top two, not sure who would "win."

So I voted for Neelix. But like most of the bad characters, he was also unimportant. I'd rather vote for a character who really helped screw up a show.
Holy crap I left out an entire show.

Sorry, folks. I screwed this one up.
You should also check your spelling on a few names you did get. But either way, Wesley wins all the way. That sounded weird: how can this looser win anything? Meh...

Re: Who is the worst character in all of Star Trek main cast?

OK, until (if?) there is a new improved version of the thread, I'll vote in this one. I haven't seen ENT other than "Broken Bow" anyway (and pretty much EVERY character annoyed me in it...but they may get better later). I picked Chekov, Rand, Chapel, Wesley Crusher, Yar, Kim and Neelix. Deanna Troi got a very near and lucky escape, for having an interesting episode or two ("Face of the Enemy").

Re: Who is the worst character in all of Star Trek main cast?

Neelix. Just a nothing character. Of all the "alien" characters on Trek, he mostly seemed like a human in a mask. Not the actor's fault, just bad writing. What is a Talaxian? Can anyone answer that, along the lines of What is a Vulcan or What is a Klingon? They would have been better off just having Ethan play another of the Marquis crew.

Come on, would anyone really buy that guy as a Maquis fighter?

Your mileage may vary. As far as I am concerned, it works out for Spock, Kira, Dukat, Sarek, Ro Laren, K'Ehleyr, Picard, Data (I'd rather describe it as lovable cuteness, but many girls find him hot), Damar, and I would argue, maybe even Jadzia Dax, among others. But then anyone can disagree with both who they consider a good character, and who they find sexy. Quite a few people find Seven an interesting character.
There's a difference between an attractive character and a character designed to boost ratings with their chest. For example, Saavik was an attractive character, but she wasn't really sexy, per se.
I'm not sure why that quote is attributed to me... I never said it. That was DevilEyes. Though I more-or-less agree with the sentiment.

And I personally like Seven. Yes, she was attractive, and the design of her catsuits made things rather obvious, but I never saw her as just a sexy babe designed to boost ratings. Maybe the suits at UPN did, but I actually enjoyed the character, and Ryan's portrayal of her.

I voted for Pulaski. The actress was good, but the character just wasn't handled very well by the powers that be--who obviously realized their mistake, because Crusher returned the next year.
