I think Spock for me as well, as has been mentioned above he is one of the coolest characters ever created. I think a big part of that appeal was Nimoy's great interpretation and portrayal of the character.

Mind you, Kirk & McCoy are great characters as well. The dynamic between those 3 is, imo, the distilled essence of the show.

I'll submit that EVERYONE likes Scotty.

I can see where people would not care for some aspects of Kirk or McCoy or Spock or others. But Scotty?? Come on! Who doesn't like Scotty? Who could possibly have any gripes about him?

I like Scotty; except for his rampant alcoholism...

Kirk is The King however.

Agreed, whenever he'd go off on a tear about something he'd remind me of my grandma. She was exactly like that.

Ironically, she couldn't see it.

With me he's a lot like my Dad. His family was from Georgia and I was actually born there on De Kelley's birthday.

I was thinking about my favorite characters from each series...Hoshi/ENT, 7 Of 9/VOY, Jadzia Dax/DS9 & Data/TNG...and I really don't have a favorite from TOS...I liked TOS and all...but I feel I may like all the characters equally enough where I don't have a favorite.

Do you have a favorite TOS character...I would like to hear who & why...this may help me a little.
whoops wrong thread

I dont dislike any of them but I'd say that Spock and McCoy are clear favourites with Spock just taking it.

Bones. For me as a child he was so kind and fatherly and reliable. He was safe. I loved him for years. Kirk near second for me. It's only been lately that I've really taken to Spock, and now I love him a great deal.

Re: I Don't Have A Favorite...

Spock is way cool and Kirk will always be my hero, but as times goes by, McCoy is increasingly becoming my favorite. I just get such a kick out of him -- he always has the best lines! Kelley was SUCH a scene stealer (particularly in the movies).

Spock, of course, followed by Spock, then Spock, then Spock.

He was indeed the coolest character on TV when I was a kid, and you know what? He's still one of the all-time coolest characters on TV. There's just never been anybody like him.

Spock is first. He was the most intriguing character. But McCoy was a close second.

Re: I Don't Have A Favorite...

The more I think about it, I think the Kirk, Spock & McCoy dynamic is great...lately after reading all this...I always liked Chekov...I am still not ready to pick a favorite though.

Of course I think Walter Koening carried that character well.

Re: I Don't Have A Favorite...

I am a TOS-er with no favorite. Kirk when younger, so "first love" so to speak. But I now wish I were Spock, and really appreciate the acting of De Kelley. And there is no character I hate, unlike in any of the other series!

Uhura. I watched Star Trek as a child and I wanted to grow up to be just like her.

Have a look in your local phone book, maybe you'll find his great-great grandpa. Buy him a scotch.
