Looks and personality - Miles O'Brien

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Kira, and not because she's a woman, but because she's such a reactionary.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of yours, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Bashir, Quark, Jake, and Leeta. DEFINITELY Leeta.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of yours, why?
Eddington. Schmuck.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
I would be a weapons/security officer

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
I'd likely be working on a starship working a tactical station.

Chief of Operations and steal Miles' job lol.

Jake but with Ben's facial hair.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Female Changeling. I can only hold one shape (though it expands and contracts at times), I'm not "female" and I don't have plans for galactic domination...at least plans I'm going to admit to on the web.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Jake Sisko. Age and personalities work out pretty well, plus he is really the only on not in an armed service.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Dukat. You don't win friends in fire-caves.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
I have no military service, no idea about the technology, no real galactic-culture knowledge outside the very limited view I've seen on the show, plus my degree is 4 centuries out of date so the basics might be useful...but that isn't much. I probably have to work in one of the shops on the Prom.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
Risa + sexing it up. Probably get tireness and sore after a while. I wonder if they would still have travel guide/show people. I'd like that job since it involves travelling and sampling other cultures, etc...plus I get to force my opinions on others and I love that in real life.

In terms of personality, Keiko, because she's a mother and ran the school.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Worf, though he's one of my favourite characters. I'm not physically fit and dislike weapons.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
O'Brien, Bashir, Jadzia, Ezri, Kasidy, Jake, and I'd like to think Sisko, because I'm laid-back and easy-going.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Quark, because I don't drink alcohol.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Human resources or diplomatic relations. I have no mathematical or scientific ability, so I'd be kinda useless on the station.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
As I said above, if I was in Starfleet I'd be involved with first contact/diplomatic relations, so I could be anywhere.

Kira. I relate most easily to her, she's a lot like me - outspoken, passionate, determined, stubborn, opinionated, principled, she has a temper like me, and she's quite caring, tender-hearted and vulnerable deep inside... Which doesn't mean that there aren't big differences and that I am like her, but I can see myself being like her if I had her background. I'd also say that, apart from the hair, she is closer to me in appearance than Ezri or Jadzia or other females on the show.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possible and why?
Rom and Leeta. Also Grand Nagus Zek... Weyoun...

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Odo, Jadzia, Kira (again), O'Brien, Sisko, Jake (as an adult, ... he's a writer, we have similar interests), Ziyal, Ezri... Anyone who is frank, honest, loyal and trustworthy; who isn't overbearing and arrogant and who treats you like an equal; who I can have an intelligent conversation with; and who won't continually hit on me in an annoying way. The latter could be a problem with Bashir, at least before he grows up from his clueless manchild stage, as he started to do in the later seasons.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Winn. She reminds me of the kind of people that I really can't stand in real life.

Per the above mentioned requirements, I would probably never be real friends with Worf, since he's not one to have a conversation with; Rom, since you can't have an intelligent conversation with him, unless it's about engineering, which I have no clue about or interest in; Quark, since you can't count on him to stop hitting on you in an annoying way if you're female (Bashir, as noted above, is an open verdict) and he'll always have some scheme going; or Garak - who would be an acquaintance to have a fun conversation with, but who totally fails requirement #1, and I can't be real friends with someone I can't trust. (And Dukat is kinda obvious - he fails everything except the intelligent conversation requirement, and even that only while he's sane)

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Hm... I suppose I could be a reporter for a news service, or make holo-documentaries, or something... Maybe I'd be an archeologist researching old Bajor artefacts (and occasionally going to the excavation sites at B'hala. And for a hobby, I'd go and sing at Vic's.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
Probably something to do with humanistic and social sciences or arts. Maybe I'd be a writer or a holoprogram-maker (are there still filmmakers out there?)... or I'd be researching history, anthropology, sociology of various planets, comparing languages, decrypting ancient languages, stuff like that. Maybe even helping with the continuous re-programming and perfecting of the Universal Translator?

Re: DS9 and YOU

1. Which character of DS9 (no matter if main cast or guest star) would you say is most like yourself (personality wise and/or appearance wise..or two characters, one for personality, one for appearance) and why?
Damar. Right now I may be an underling who drinks too much, but just wait till you see what I have planned for later in life.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possible and why?
Odo. He has an innate desire for order. I... *looks around the room* ...don't.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Quark. He is the bartender.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Kira. I would ask her out immediately, and she would probably say no. Either way, we'd never be friends.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Garak's assistant in the tailor shop. I'd be well-dressed, and I'd be... well, Garak's assistant! Surely some of the awesomeness would rub off?!?! And I'd get to be there when Sisko comes storming in after learning about the destruction of Vreenak's shuttle in ItPM, which would be AWESOME. Of course, Garak would probably kill me later, but it would be worth it.

To the extent I survive, I could eventually get a job with Section 31 based on the knowledge and aura of awesomeness I had acquired from years of hemming trousers with Garak.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
On Bajor. The Sisko likes it, and who am I to question The Sisko?

1) Garak - can be quite devious smart and have a way with words in fact i enjoy word games etc.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
2) Odo - im just not like odo in sense of work ethic, and if i could shape shift i would get up to so much mischief.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
3) Ezri shes hot and cute

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
4) worf he just seems to boring and not the sort of person i could be friends with

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
5) even though its not seen in the show i imagine i would be trying to break dominion / Cardassian codes as i find the idea of code breaking fun and can get easily hooked on it.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
6) probably on a major human planet maybe not earth doing something in the political sphere

1. Which character of DS9 (no matter if main cast or guest star) would you say is most like yourself (personality wise and/or appearance wise..or two characters, one for personality, one for appearance) and why?
O'Brien and season 1 Bashir. O'Brien is just a normal guy with a family that also happens to have a job on the station that he's good at, that's pretty much the way I'd like to see myself, except I don't have moobs. At the same time, I'm quite arrogant and only barely tolerable, but the big difference between early Bashir and myself is that he can back up his arrogance with his super-human abilities and I... can't.

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possible and why?
Probably Quark. I love hoarding money, but that's about it for the commonalities.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
How should I know? I like almost all the characters on DS9 on some level, it pretty much comes down to whoever would tolerate me.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Garak. He's my favourite character so I don't like saying it, but I don't think he'd be interested in me. I have no big secrets and I'm not a fascinating person, so I can't imagine he'd waste his time in my company.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
I'd work in the engineering department, but I probably wouldn't be in charge of it.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
I'd be an engineer on Starbase 1, taking in the view whenever I could.

personality-vise probably a mixture of miles, worf and garak. as for looks, i don't know. bashir minus the middle eastern heritage.
2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
definitely bashir. or quark for that matter
3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Probably Miles 'cause id be probably the only one who can keep up with that engineering bs of his. but safe to say bashir would have gotten some competition when it came to ezri.
4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
I have to second on eddington. do i need a reason? i hate traitors. and yes i consider him a traitor. wouldnt have had a problem with him if he resigned and joined the maquis.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Probably engineering or security on ds9. tactical on defiant

1.Kira because her passion, stubbornness,shes kind loving,. Jadzia because i have many moods
2. Dukat- im not a killer, evil and heartless individual.
3. Jadzia- Id be able to trust her, shes loyal and she would have good advice to offer, shes friendly and funny.
4.
Quark, id never be able to trust him, and he gets on my nerves at times

I'm about the same height and build as Ezri but personality wise I'm more like Jadzia. I can be a bit like Kira sometimes if I'm in a mood, but I'm mostly laid back like Jadzia.
2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Probably Odo, he's usually so serious and organised.
3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
I could see me getting along with Quark because he owns the bar, Jadzia because she likes enjoys a party and I could enjoy a pint with Miles and Julian.
4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Odo and Sisko both seem too serious and they'd probably be too busy with work.
5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
I'd like to be a science officer since I have a degree in chemistry.
6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
I'd like to be a science officer on a starship, maybe Voyager stuck in the delta quadrant.

Odo. Hard-core sense of justice, oftentimes cool and detached--but when pressed, reveals the great emotions within. And a bit of an outsider....

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Weyoun. I'm no ultra-dependent, rear-kissing yes man--and I'm incapable of pulling cons on people.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
Hard to choose between Ezri, Bashir, Odo, and Quark.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
The Female Changeling.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Someone else suggested working with Garak.... I'd concurr. Training in the art of The Game...what's not to love about that?

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
In Paris, heavily involved in the politics of the UFP.

None of the DS9 characters look like myself, but out of all the ST characters, I'd have to relate closer to Riker in appearance (mostly because of the beard I got now and how I usually have my hair)

But personality-wise, I'm a split between Odo and Garak. Odo being much like what I used to be in my younger years (and a bit like today) and Garak for how I am today.... but I still got the Riker charm

2. And which character is as opposite from yourself as possibel and why?
Quark... Just about everything about his personality doesn't match my own. But I still like the guy and could see myself getting into a couple of schemes of his.

3. Which character would be most likely become a good friend of you, if you would be a character in DS9? Why?
I'd probably get along with just about everybody. Even in my real life I hold no "Best Friends" as all my friends are equal. But probably Sisko, O'Brien and Ezri..... perhaps Worf as well.

4. Which character would most likely never become a good friend of you, why?
Probably Winn.... she's a wanker.

5. What would be your job on DS9? Why that one?
Either Tactical/Security or Command due to my own background in those areas via family and personal experience.... that and I seem to figure out what's going on before the crew does in the show.... and I seem to also know what someone is about to say on the show before they do. That and I tend to have an unbiased view of situations and can view the bigger picture of what's going on.

6. If you would not be living on the station, but be in that universe/timeline..well you know...where would you be living instead and what would you be doing there?
If I wasn't there, then I'd probably be on a starship somewhere..... or working on Risa.... or perhaps working on Holodeck programs.
