Favorite Star Trek main character (all series!)

I admit that it's debatable whether Chapel, Rand, Arex, M'Ress, and maybe Pulaski should be considered main cast members. But I assume that they won't win anyway.

And yes, you can only vote for one.

Tough to pick just one, but I'm going for Picard too, with Kirk and Worf a close second and third.

Where's Ensign Ro Laren of TNG? She was only in one season, but so were Pulaski and Tasha Yar, and Ezri of DS9.

I voted for Spock. He is probably the most iconic Star Trek character there is, and greatly created Vulcans as we know them.

Ro wasn't a main character. (Then again, neither where Rand, Chapel, Arex and M'ress)

Spock. To choose otherwise is illogical.

Michelle Forbes was credited as a guest star during her appearances. Denise Crosby and Nicole de Boer were in the opening credits of their respective shows.

Kate Pulaski is in fact the only TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT character who didn't appear in any opening credits, but is included in this poll. But as far as I know, Diana Muldaur would have been in the opening credits for TNG's Season 2 if she hadn't insisted on being credited as a "special guest star" for some reason.

It gets a bit trickier with TOS since only Shatner, Nimoy, and Kelley were in the opening credits back then. Here I had to use my own discretion. I stopped before including Lt. Kyle.


So, the formula I used was:

Characters whose actors appeared in the opening credits of TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT + Kate Pulaski + "recurring characters" played by Doohan, Takei, Nichols, Koenig, Barrett, Whitney during TOS and TAS.

If you don't think that Pulaski, Chapel, Rand, Arex, or M'Ress shouldn't be considered main characters, then don't vote for them.

^^ I didn't know all of that. You've clearly put a lot of thought into this.
