Hey... Janeway is a -great- villain!
You're all jealous.
Just because he doesn't kill people doesn't mean he's a nice person. And ok I admit Dax likes him and I guess the others have brief waves of liking him but on the whole he is not exactly a great buddy. Also most of the time he is unintentionally a positive force. Like in the episode Shakaar and Kira start dating (can't remember what it's called) and he's has a go at Odo for making too much noise and says he doesn't care how he feels. That in itself is horrible but it just happened to make Odo deal with it.
Pft, one of my favorite characters in Trek is Damar, the reformed villain. Redemption is out there for Janeway if she just admits her wrong doing!
I never liked Chapel's mopey-dopey lovesick over Spock routine. God bless her, Majel Barrett Roddenberry was tireless in her work for the franchise, and I even met and bought a cheap phaser from her 20-odd years ago when I spotted her at her dealer's table at a convention (she was not an announced guest). But I didn't much care for any of her characters. Except for her role as Lumpy Rutherford's mom on Leave It To Beaver.
The Ferengi and Garak were all that made DS9 tolerable. Quark was a breath of fresh air from the growing sanctimoniousness that permeated the TNG era. Quark was a great outsider looking at the Federation. Sometimes very trenchantly correct about the Federation as in the Root Beer analogy. It was something true about the franchise as a whole and not simply as a plot point in an episode.
Well I do love Garak. And I guess Quark can make some interesting points about the Federation but the actual character of Quark I just do not like. And personally I think Garak should've been the bigger character and Quark the smaller. I found Garak had an interesting backstory and he could've said all the same stuff Quark did about the Federation.
Quark is freaking HOT. And he's a breath of fresh air on that station stale with Federation wankery and Klingon farting contests.
I'm hoping dumps Chak in the next book, will that be enough?
He's my Trek hero. I'd love a Quark/Dominar Rigel crossover.
I originally came here for Star Trek. I come back for your caustic comments, teacake! I'm not jealous, I'm a teacaker! Are there teacake fanzines? Sign me up!
Don't crush my dreams!!!!
I don't care much for Kira.
I'm 99.8% sure that you're joking, but I'm still going to have to go look it up now.
Oh no, you weren't joking! So, Majel was like 28 when she played Lumpy's mom, so Gwen must have had Lumpy when she was..what, 13? Well, Fred always struck me as being kind of a creep, this just confirms it.
For 12 years now, I've been hearing how this clown is a "relatable" character, and "the kind of guy you'd want to have a beer with". I just don't see it.
He started out as a whiny, petulant asshole, and got worse as the show went on.
For my money, Reed is the much more "relatable" character, and FAR more approachable. I'd rather have a whole ship full of Reeds than even one Trip.
By far my least favorite character is the original Khan. So arrogant and slimy, yuck!
I admit to not being overly fond of Q either, I only liked the episode where he was temporarily mortal.
In that case, you must have loved the ENT series finale!
Ironically enough, no. Even I felt the moron deserved better than that.
But, again ironically, his committing suicide that way WAS perfectly in character with how he always shot off his mouth, and NEVER thought anything through.
Don't be a teahater.
