Re: Most annoying Starfleet munchkin

Looks like Jake put on a little weight, too. I recall Cirroc Lofton was skinny as a rail. I always liked his character, particularly when they decided to make him a writer and not follow in his father's Starfleet footsteps. Then Sisko kind of got a surrogate Starfleet son in the form of Nog, another unexpected development. I esp. liked the ep that was a takeoff on The Red Badge of Courage, where he flees the scene of a battle with the Dominion, and is guilty about it. -- RR

Wesley by far. Ever since "Encounter at Farpoint" he annoyed the hell out of me.

EDIT: New poll is up, check it out here!

Since there wasn't really any annoying kids in TOS (that I recall), this'll just be for TNG, DS9, and VOY. Who is the most annoying?

Personally I'm going with Naomi. Wesley is a close contender, granted, but I really think it was more along the lines of what they did with his character more than the character himself. He gets points for being angsty though. Naomi OTOH, had this indescribable out-of-placeness. Every time they used her character, it always seemed forced to me. Plus she was really chipper, which was kind of off-beat with a lot of the episodes she was in.
I agree. Naomi always gave me the heebie-jeebies. That time she badgered Seven about Borg kids, even though it was the Borg Queen speaking through her, I thought the creepiest thing about it was that kid!

Re: Most annoying Starfleet munchkin

Here are a couple of pics I snapped of Cirroc Lofton at the Orlando Vulkon in July. (That's Aron "Nog" Eisenberg with him in the first pic.)

Are the two of them to scale there???

Poor Aron does not seem to reach Loftons navel! He didn't look that short on the show


I was thinking at least Naomi had an excuse for the captains assistant thing, she was a child.
Wes was a teenager, he should have been getting into trouble, scoring chicks his mother didn't approve of, drinking, staying out after hours etc
When they got the academy career going he wasn't annoying anymore tho.

I know! Cirroc is only about one stride closer to the camera, though. I'll see if I can dig up a pic where the comparison isn't confounded by camera angle.

Here you go. You can see that even on a more even plane, Cirroc is quite a bit larger than Aron.

Wesley IS the only option. Unless you count Trip, who was such an annoying loud mouth prick, he acted like an immature asshole.

Even Wesley wasn't THAT bad. A pansified putz, yes, but not THAT bad.

I can see the choices now:

Most annoying Starfleet munchkin

1) Wesley

2) The Boy

3) Doctor Crusher's son

4) Star Fleet washout turned energy being

Peeps:
I think the key here is "Starfleet munchkin." In other words, young kids who are Starfleet officer wannabes or who became officers. So Alexander was never in Starfleet. Neither, up till the point we saw her, was Molly O'Brien.

Jake shouldn't be included in the poll because he was the 24th century equivalent of a military brat, not a Starfleet cadet or officer.
If you had named the poll most annoying ST munchkin, you could've added Alexander Rozhenko and Molly O'Brien for sure. And then Jake would fit, too.
A tribute to Jake Sisko

To me it's 1. Alexander, 2. Molly.
Jake would fit, but I wouldn't vote for him. He's not annoying, he grows up into a remarkable person. And set aside his freakish asparagus proportions, he becomes quite alluring. How many real dreamers are there in Star Trek? His choice of profession calls for respect - he stands out for it in the DS9 universe like the Pierre Bezukhov of War and Peace (the outsider/passive observer who represents the author himself).
One would think that fans, particularly fanfic writers would identify with him.

Oops! I was not the first to praise Jake. Got to the end of the thread before I read it all.

Good thing Lofton filled out. But if you look closer, he's not larger than Eisenberg, he just has more square shoulders and wears a waistcoat.
