Wait a minute: does Welshy count?
Sure, if you like him. I wanted him gone the first second I saw him, but I'm sure there are plenty who like him.
My favorites
TOS: Kirk, Spock, McCoy (I'd put the whole cast, really.)
DS9: Quark, Garak, Nog
Voy: Janeway, Seven
Ent: Trip, T'Pol (This series, too, would have the whole cast.)

TOS and Enterprise were both series that I liked all the characters. I wish Enterprise had done more with the cast and the initial exploration of the crew and what they each uniquely brought to the ship. I didn't really want to see Klingons in the first year, much less the first episode. The less said about the temporal cold war the better, but overall I really liked the Enterprise cast about equally with the TOS cast.

Re: Your Top Trek Characters

Top 15
1. Picard
2. McCoy
3. Riker
4. The Doctor
5. Worf
6. Martok
7. Data
8. Ro
9. Q
10. Quark
11. NuKirk
12. Kirk
13. Dr. Crusher
14. Porthos
15. Kira

Honorable mentions: Voyager's first episode, "Caretaker"'s Tom Paris. He wasn't the same after that episode but I guess no one would be after what happened; Dukat before the Pah-wraith puppeting, same reason; and I had high hopes for NuScotty, I like Simon Pegg films, but I thought he would at least get a little drunk.

Re: Your Top Trek Characters

Porthos is great!

The Enterprise crew loves boasting about being the first humans to go where-ever, but Porthos was always under-appraised in that regard, plus, after all he's been through, NuScotty loses the hundread year old dog in a teleporting accident.

Do we know for sure that it was Porthos that nuScotty lost in his transporter experiment? Scotty said that it was Adm. Archer's prized Beagle, but Porthos really would have been about 100 during the timeframe of ST09. None of my beagles ever lived past 13 or so.

Phlox did put that weird gland in him during A Night in Sickbay.

Screenwriter Roberto Orci, responding to a question about whether it was Porthos, and whether veterinary science had advanced enough for a dog to live over a hundred years. He answered "YES!", however, it should be noted that the individual who asked the question pleaded for the writer to "please say yes." I'm all for it being the same dog.

Re: Your Top Trek Characters

I'll try to keep the list within reason:
TOS: Spock, McCoy, Scotty
TNG: Picard, Data, Troi, Spot (a request from Mrs. Blueshirt)
DS9: Bashir, Kira, Quark, Garak (all of them, really; the ones I name can't be separated from how well they play off the other characters)
VOY: Seven, the Doctor, Tuvok
ENT: Phlox
Antagonists: Q, Dukat, Weyoun, Toreth

And he was played by the most natural actors in the cast.
