Jake. I like writers.

Nog would be a close second, and I was rather fond of Naomi as well. She seemed like a good kid.

I'm surprised and happy to see so much love for Nog. As others have said, his character arc was amazing. That aside, I'll always love the trouble he and Jake got into as two mischievous boys on the run from Odo.

Re: Poll: Who's your favorite Trek kid?

Jake and Nog always felt like real teenagers, hanging out on the Promenade and occasionally misbehaving, unlike Wesley, who too often seemed like a cross between a miniature adult and some idealized notion of what a teenage whiz kid should be . . . .

Nog was my hands-down favorite among the non-others in the poll, so I went with him.

However, my overall favorite Trek kid, from all series, including one-offs, is the young Spock from TAS:Yesteryear.

^This. Nog probably should win, but I have soft spot for both Jake and Naomi. Even Icheb had a few good moments.

Re: Poll: Who's your favorite Trek kid?

Yeah, Jake was probably the most realistic kid of any of the Trek series. He was funny, laid-back, creative but unambitious - basically just a regular teenager. He was the anti-Wesley... which is probably why I like him.

But Nog is still my favorite; he reminds me of an eager, hyper-active little puppy.

Re: Poll: Who's your favorite Trek kid?

Yeah, I was groaning inside for a couple early episodes when Sisko seemed to be encouraging Jake to join Starfleet... though I was pleasantly surprised when Jake just said he didn't want to, but was afraid of disappointing his father... who in the end had no problem with it. It seemed very real. One of my favorite Jake episodes was Nor the Battle to the Strong... he was really a regular guy with merits and limitations in that episode and you could feel for him.

Sarjenka, the little girl in "Pen Pals". She was very sweet.

I only voted for Jake because Nog was doing just fine on his own.

Naomi wins my vote, followed by Nog and Icheb.

POOR WESLEY, no votes for him.

My God, teacake. That new avatar is hilariously disturbing.

I go with Jake. He had a quiet soul and I'm glad they didn't have him join Starfleet. I liked the twist of Nog ending up at the academy.

Re: Poll: Who's your favorite Trek kid?

I voted for Jake, since he seems like the kid I most would have hung out with when I was his age. And my dog is named Jake.

I'd vote for Naomi WIldman if we were talking about how they look today.

I might have voted for ALexander, if only because he made me miss Wesley.

I voted for Nog. His character developed the most and I found myself disliking him less and less over time.

Hm. DS9 characters own at least 75% of the poll.

What's more, they had their own series of young reader novels as well focusing in their adventures: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (young reader series)-Wesley never had that (although I still like him.)
