Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I agree about Sarek\Amanda and Odo\Kira.

I actually liked Troi & TOM Riker, better than Troi and Will Riker, at least during the series. In the movies, however, Riker\Troi was actually one of the few good things about the last two movies.

I dunno, Vash and Picard never seemed a good fit to me. She's too loose and wild for the calm and refined Picard. It did show as well as much as they argued in the two episodes they were together in.

Vash was an interesting character and a nice change of pace from the "do no wrong" Roddenberry humans, it's just too bad she only appeared in bad episodes.
I never cared for the Picard\Vash angle, either. I didn't like Vash at all. And something about her teeth always bugged me!

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Would Kirk/Enterprise qualify as a couple? I mean, seriously...

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Data and Tasha Yar.

And yes, Kirk's greatest love was The Enterprise.

From The Naked Time:

KIRK: I've got it, the disease. Love. You're better off without it, and I'm better off without mine. This vessel, I give, she takes. She won't permit me my life. I've got to live hers.
SPOCK: Jim.
KIRK: I have a beautiful yeoman. Have you noticed her, Mister Spock? You're allowed to notice her. The Captain's not permitted
SPOCK: Jim, there is an intermix formula.
KIRK: Now I know why it's called she.
SPOCK: It's never been tested. It's a theoretical relationship between time and antimatter.
KIRK: Flesh woman to touch, to hold. A beach to walk on. A few days, no braid on my shoulder.
SCOTT: Captain.
KIRK: Scotty, help.
SPOCK: Stand by to intermix. I'll call the formulae in from the Bridge.
UHURA [OC]: Entering upper stratosphere, Captain. Skin temperature now twenty one hundred seventy degrees.
KIRK: I've got to hang on. Tell them. Clear the corridors, the turbo lift. Hurry. (Scott and Spock leave) Never lose you. Never.

that was somethign I always though was odd, and if I was Troi I'd be really pissed at Riker for. He broke up with her because his career was the most important thing to him. But then he turns down how many oportunities for advancement, so he broke up with her and then didn't persue his career, I'd be pissed at that
Lwaxana Troi blasted him for that in one episode. She said Riker was holding Troi back.

And I think Deanna subconsciously resented it --in Man Of The People, she bedded an officer and Riker walks in.

She was like, "yeah I was with him. I do things with other men. And it's really none of your business".

True, Riker never said anything first and she was under some alien influenced disease or something, but it came out really resentful like she always wanted to say that.

I agree.

She was a fun diversion, but in no way did that qualify as a great coupling.

That's what made them an interesting couple.

News flash--Real couples do that.

Jennifer Hetrick and Patrick Stewart were engaged for a while during TNG's run.

I can't believe anyone said Spok/Uhura
LOL you're late with the shock, I suggest you to never google them then
I've read that they're one of the most popular het ships of the franchise right now and judging by some stats (e.g., fan communities, fans and fanfictions) it might be quite true.

It's a tie for me:

Sarek & the Lady Amanda - They just exude elegance, and class.

Spock & Uhura (NuTrek) - Because it's a relationship that is fresh, new, between two characters that I respect, and I'd like to see where it goes. Also, I think it's cute when they argue.
basically...
it's the only pairs that picked my interests.

though, I agree with:

Nothing trashy about it. We can only hope that there will still be couples and love stories in the future . . . .

I have high hopes for Spock/Uhura, but since that relationship is still a work-in-progress, let's go for:

1) Trip and T'Pol. One of the better chemistry experiments between Trek regulars. They had a nice, prickly sexual tension thing going.

2) Spock and Zarabeth. Just a one-shot, but I still bought that relationship, and that Spock genuinely lost a shot at something precious there. (Plus, I just reread Ann Crispin's "Yesterday" novels, so I have Zarabeth on the brain.)

the chemistry was surely there
