I've noticed that child/teenager characters are some of the most hated characters in Star Trek. Wesley Crusher is king, if you take a scientific poll among all Star Trek fans probably. I personally think that Jake is more so and much more annoying. There are also the children from TOS and many other child actors in Star Trek. However, sometimes I think that they are necessary to move the plot and need to show realism. However, we use art to escape reality into something more entertaining... Thoughts....????!!!
