She had some creepy big hands though...
But of course he cast her aside.
She's too old for Patrick's taste.
My own few pennies...
Most relationships on all the Treks didn't ring "true" for me. More, those that did start to feel real went off the rails in terms of believability. One such was Amanda/Sarek. Her hissy fit at the end of "Journey to Babel" struck a very wrong chord, although up until then it felt very real. Was as if the production decided to staple on a slice of 50s sitcom onto the end, just so they could get a line everyone wanted (understandably, the line is great--my objection lies with the setup).
Never, ever saw any chemistry between Rider/Troi. Nor the two characters that in theory had captured Scotty's heart. Kirk's squeeze-of-the-week had all the emotional depth of a James Bond tryst. The "relationship" between Picard and Lwaxana felt fun, but came across as parsecs closer to a kind of friendship than anything like real romance. Other relationships, like Janeway's with her boyfriend (okay there was no time to develop that) and Sisko's with Yates, felt forced.
But the ones I did believe in, did feel touched a note of actual romantic chemistry...
Paris/Torres - because it seemed to spontaneously grow out of two flawed characters' interaction over years.
Picard/Vash - not because this was a Great Love, but because these two ended up with a strong connection, even though they'd be miserable married to one another.
Jadzia/Worf - for much the same reason as Paris/Torres. They worked with each other, got to know each other, and I totally accepted these two felt something real.
Spock/Uhura - heresy I know, but seems to me there was always a specific connection these two felt in the original timeline, and an alternate history if they'd met under different circumstances this seemed possible. Don't like how it played out in STID, though.
Special mention for Odo/Kira that almost made sense to me, for the Doctor's infatuation with Seven, and Bones' feelings for his old flame Nancy.
Yep. During the 3rd and 4th seasons, so while they were shooting Qpid.
Picard and Darren.
Hello, did anyone mention Data and Yarr? That would have been an interesting couple. My favorite has to be Tpol and tripp. Hands Down! New here not sure if I clicked on the right section. LOL enjoying the articles very much
All of this. Also, Spock and Kirk. Not a couple in that sense but their bromance is epic for me.
I should have mentioned T'Pol/Tripp as well.
Trip&T'Pol and Riker and Deanna Troi . Kira and Odo. Sarek/Amanda BenSisko/Kassidy Yates.
... AGREED!!! Very well said.
Rom/Leeta are adorable.
Odo/Kira, but only because I like Odo and he was happy for a while at that time (and I loved the part when he first kisses her). I'm not tremendously fond of Kira, though.
Yeah, that's pretty much my feelings on that.
Trip and T'Pol and Riker and Deanna?
That might have saved TATV.
Phlox probably would have been set to join in!
Picard/Crusher (ST GEN):: I finally got my wish in the Trek novel universe.
Riker/Troi (ST GEN-----Movies):I was always like just get together already because not once did I think of worf/troi as end game.
Spock/Uhura (Star Trek 2009): unfortunately I did not like the movie into darkness and everything that came with it.
Did somebody by the name of KaraBear just vomit at mention of this couple? vomiting at the mention of two minority characters in a romantic relationship is just a big NO NO. prejudice much? or pephaps its because she ruined your K/S slash.
I say this with logic. Spock/Uhura from the 2009 film was one of the best couples star trek ever produced. the critical reception and popularity from the 2009 film about this pairing speaks for itself. Too bad it was ruined by the writers in the second film. STiD was a pretty bad film.
Sarek/Amanda (Star Trek TOS and Star Trek 2009): I saw the deleted scenes of the sarek and amanda fight from the 2009 film and I ask. How could you not love this pairing. although I never want to watch a sex scene featuring Sarek and Amanda.
Tpol/Trip (star trek ENT): Tpol endless experience with love, sex and emotions added another dimension to her character. Too bad Trip died. The writers did consider a Tpol reunion with him.
Data and just any girl (Star Trek GEN): Data constant need to feel like humans did was very enduring and I felt like he showed this need most when he was either Geordi or when he tried to be a boyfriend to Jenna D'Sora in the episode: In Theory.
It was so so sweet. My heart still breaks when Data said:"Then I will delete the appropriate program''. thereby ending the relationship.
Riker/Troi - Too bad we got jerked around for seven seasons and three movies before the fans finally got the payoff on that stroyline.
Worf and Jadzia
Tom and B'elanna
Picard and Vash
Sarek and Amanda
Spock counts as a minority in the real world?
