Re: Who was the most hated character among fans while DS9 was airing?

Rom. Definitely Rom. He had his good moments, sure, but more often than not, if he was the focus of a story, few had positive things to say about it afterwards.

Re: Who was the most hated character among fans while DS9 was airing?

I agree with the general sentiment that there weren't any Wesley like characters on DS9, though to be honest I never hated Wesley either. I can understand it, but I just don't agree with the general dislike of his character, though that's a topic for another time.
I think on DS9, most of the characters, even the ones that were disliked or at least were not the stand out favorites, grew so much over time, that even if you started out not liking them, they at least developed some qualities that redeemed them.

It is interesting to note, that I've seen some ill words thrown toward lwaxana Troi and her appearances on DS9 over the years. Even though she only showed up two or three times, more than a few people never seemed to take to the idea of her interest in Odo.
Personally, while not my favorite guest star, I by no means hated her or her ongoing story line with Odo.

Re: Who was the most hated character among fans while DS9 was airing?

I'd say early Bashir annoyed me a lot. But by season 3 or 4, they'd made an active effort to make him less insufferable and though that major plot twist concerning him is really out there, it suited him in the end. Though Ezri did annoy me too... but for spoilers I won't get into that. Let's just say she distracted from the main plot more often than contributing to it.

As for Nog, Captain Kathryn. I'd actually say he probably had the best character arc out of -everyone- on DS9. He's a petty Ferengi brat at first but he changes... a lot. If you watched the season 7 finale of DS9 you seriously wouldn't recognize him, but the slow changes over the years really do become him.

This will be unpopular, but the character I resented the most was Ezri Dax. I felt they wasted too much time on a new character when they had really important plots to tie up by the end of the series. I won't say any more so as not to spoil Captain Kathryn!
Eh...I don't think Bashir is that bad. He has a cute affection for Jadzia and I like his love/hate relationship with O'Brien and Garak. It's not as funny or interesting as the Odo/Quark relationship, but is still funny to watch. Either way, I don't have any dislike for Bashir. He isn't my favorite character, but he's not too bad in my opinion.

I love Garak. He needed more episodes. Well since I am only approaching Season 3, maybe more will come. I think he is an awesome character.

Dang...all these premonitions about Nog coming in. I might have to look up spoilers to satisfy my curiousity now... Or should I just wait and be surprised?

Up to you of course! You'd probably appreciate it more if you watched it develop over time.

Yeah... I won't peek.

I was sad to read that Jadzia is replaced in Season 4. Did the actor quit or did the producers want a character swap?

Well since that one's spoiled for you already... It was at the end of season 6 actually. Terry Farrell had a six year contract and didn't renew.

Bashir was annoying early on but that was kind of the point. Even the "everyman" O'Brian thought he was annoying at first.

Garak is my favorite character in all of Star Trek and don't worry he appears in over 30 episodes so you will be getting plenty more Garak. And when you are done with the show you could always checkout "A Stich in Time" it's a book all about Garaks life written by the actor himself and is considered one of the best Trek books ever written.

Ah...I had the seasons mixed up.

That's kind of sad...she only had one more season to go.

Yeah Garak is awesome. I get so happy whenever he shows up in an episode haha.

Re: Who was the most hated character among fans while DS9 was airing?

I'm not crazy about the Ferengi, except Quark. He's the only one that doesn't look like he's wearing a big rubber head.

Now that I think about it, they could have made Zek a lot funnier by casting Billy Crystal.

Re: Who was the most hated character among fans while DS9 was airing?

I wasn't a fan of Bashir to start with, but as previously stated, that was the point. It took time to warm up to him and find him a delight to watch, especially his friendships with O'Brien, Dax and Garak.
