    OK this may be a slightly trashy thread but I find it interesting!

    Who's your favourite Trek couple? Whether it's married, one-time thing or just a fan invented couple.

    My fave real pairing has to be Troi and Riker. Their wedding was just soooo cute. Also loved Jadzia and Worf. Also, not really a couple, but the Garak-Bashir flirting was just priceless ;)

    Riker screwed everything in sight, got fat, got old, and then asked Deanna to marry him.

    My favorite couple would have to be Sarek and Amanda. In Journey to Babel they seem to be a comfortable older couple, I perfer to think Amanda simply died of old age about a half century after Journey and Sarek was beside her side to the end.

    Given the actors' past involvement with one another, I would have loved to see a B'elanna-Damar romance.

    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. :lol:

    I really love Sisko and Cassidy their entire relationship is so cute. Sarek and Amanda is also a fave.

    Quark and Pel is another i really like its a shame that one was only for one episode i would have liked to see it develop further.

    Wow, you're right, a lot of potential with this thread.

    Sarek and Amanda will always be a good place to start. Here's one that was not presented on screen, but an intriguing possibility; Spock and Saavik.

    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.)

    3) Paris/Rain Robinson. I will go to my grave insisting that Paris had way more chemistry with Rain than he ever did with B'Elanna . . . .

    Rom and Leeta were a enjoyable watch

    Dax and worf also, keiko always annoyed me, as I liked O Brien.

    Paris& Torres ok, likewise with riker and troi.

    Meh, I never got the love for the Riker/Troi bit. He just kept her on the backburner waiting while he slept with every alien of the week, and only married her once he got too old and fat for that to fly anymore. Must be nice to have her willing to all but wait like that.

    I guess the relationship I liked the most was O'brien/Keiko. Sure they weren't the perfect couple by any measure, but it was fairly realistic. As much as they argued the makeup sex must've been good. ;)

    Why not? It's about time Uhura got a little romance . . . which she never got to do on the original show.

    Hell, even Chekov got more action on TOS. :)

    Well Uhura had that brief thing with Scotty in ST5. ;)

    I wasn't ever sold on the Spock/Uhura matching either. Just too... random and forced.

    It is also my least favorite aspect of nuTrek.

    Spock/McCoy [TOS] is my favorite couple in all of Trek. While on the surface, it seems they cannot stand one another... in reality there is a love, also.

    Sarek/Amanda is my other favorite Trek couple.

    Riker/Troi and Paris/Torres are my favorites.

    I wish Trip/T'Pol had realized its potential.

    Oh, and yes I like Spock/Uhura just fine.
