Alaimo is someone who has actually improved with age. I remember him playing a heavy on lots of mid-'70's to early '80's TV shows. The long, shaggy hair look wasn't his best. It took me a while to realize who he was when he was playing Gul Dukat. I didn't recognize the name, but man, you'd never forget the voice.
Is that look really anyone's best? The 70s were really a decade of awful hairstyles.

I like this pic with short hair that I found online. Apparently it's from an early 70s episode of the show "Nancy Drew Mysteries" and he played a character called... The Masked Man! Why are some actors always typecast as villains?



Oh and BTW I watched a really crappy late 80s B-movie called "Arena" on Youtube a couple of days ago, only because it has Alaimo and Armin Shimerman in it (and Claudia Christian from B5!) It's a typical cliche-ridden sports story about a good fighter (a dumb-looking strapping blond lead) in the world of shady sports business - the only difference being that it's sort of SF - some of the characters are aliens, including most of the wrestlers who are huge monsters, and the hero is the first human to challenge the stronger species. No surprises there when it comes to casting - Christian is the tough but honest female lead, Alaimo is the main villain - evil shady sports promoter, and Shimerman, in a really ugly mask, is his weesel-like henchman called... Weezil! Alaimo's character has silvery skin and long dark hair and acts a bit Dukat-like. I liked the look. Hot in of sort of Goth-android way (though I suppose the character is meant to be an alien)

I'd say I agree.

But then again, it seems most of the guys I find most attractive (with exceptions like Alexander Siddig, who I found attractive, and Cirroc Lofton who IS still older than I am, but not by much) tend to be older. For instance, in the most recent movie, I seemed to ignore all the guys that were getting most of the buzz and went straight for Christopher Pike [Bruce Greenwood]. I think it's a combination of looks and gravitas, personally. (Which I much prefer to the immaturity I often see in younger men and the roles they play in TV/movies.)

DevilEyes--Sorry I misunderstood! It's just that my first reaction when I saw that description was kind of an "Awwwwww, that's harsh! " one. But I totally agree about being freaked out on the idea of a Gattaca future or where it looks like everybody's been Photoshopped. Some of that almost goes into "uncanny valley" territory to me.

Re: Most attractive Trek alien races?

^^ I swing both ways, but I've also usually been drawn to people older than I am. I have to say way back in the day, Louise Fletcher was smokin' hot, and I still think she has gorgeous eyes.

^^^ And dayum, great pics of Alaimo!

Re: Most attractive Trek alien races?

I'm one of the few who voted for the Borg. I can't really say why and contrary to what was suggested I'm not remotely into BDSM.
It probably has to do with my love for Hugh (really, I could have hugged the little guy to death) that spread to all his fellow Borg. Over time I just stopped minding the grey skin and black tubes and then I realized one day that I like their look.

Another big vote goes to the Cardassians. The reasons have been stated before by others here and I'd only have to repeat what they said.

I also voted for Vulcans, Vorta and Andorians.

The Borg don't really seem like potentially good BDSM partners. Or any other kind of sexual activity. Maybe the Queen would be, but the rest of them of them are just sexless drones while they're in the collective.

If I were to guess to which races could get really kinky, I'd suspect the Vulcans, especially in Pon Farr mood (you gotta let out the steam some time, after you've been logical and suppresing emotions all day long); some of the Cardassians quite probably; maybe Romulans, too; Trills seem open-minded to all sorts of things; judging by the Intendant, the Bajorans can be kinky, too. The Klingons might not be into BDSM, but they 'normal' sex is already rough stuff by human standards.

TOS Romulans (I don't like the new look. AT ALL. )

I always thought Mark Lenard was so handsome, in both his roles.
Without the makeup, he's not so attractive. You're right that the alien makeup can add to the appeal.
I met Mark a couple times IRL and thought he was a handsome devil...beautiful voice and lovely manners too, which only added to the charm.

Don't care for the picture, but adored ML as Sarek and he made a pretty handsome a Rom too. I hated when TNG added those stupid ridges to the Rommies.

I do find Vulcan men VERY sexy Usually tall and dark...intelligent...responsible...with all those "mastered" emotions roiling underneath...plus Vulcans have superior strength, endurance and cardio-vascular systems...and they're touch telepaths...lots of interesting erotic possibilities there

Re: Most attractive Trek alien races?

TOS Rommies (NOOO RIDGES!) and Vulcans. You people know that rommies and vulcans look EXACTLY ALIKE without ridges (theyre there to distinguish them from vulcans) right? then again, vulcans act as almost polar opposites from the rommies, so i guess it depends on what you find sexy about their personalities.

oh, i picked the vorta too. i wasnt a fan of yelgrun's looks (played by iggy pop) though.

i like pointy eared aliens i guess.

oh, and i picked andriods. i looooved data!

I'm attracted to any alien females that have their clothes designed by Bill Theiss.

Re: Most attractive Trek alien races?

For me it's a tie between Cardassian and Bajoran women. Both races have something incredibly sexy about them, although I'm not entirely sure why. Must be the necks or the noses, respectively.
