    Maihar'du was great, but Mr. Homn had to deal with Lwaxana. That can't be easy.

    Mr. Homn gets my vote. I just think "which servant would I like to have if I wanted one", and Mr. Homn it would be. He just has this unique quiet sassy attitude that I appreciate a lot.

    I voted Maihar’du.

    He was on the ball enough to realize when he master was under alien influence.

    I went with the holographic option. That way a sentient being isn't in servitude, and I don't have to pay anyone.

    I wouldn’t want a holographic butler to look human or otherwise sentient. We see so many holograms used as emotional blankies.

    If there’s no actual emotion there I don’t want to feel there is.

    Unless the being likes to serve? Then again, what makes a sentient being like to serve? Altruism? Naah, that's too simple a possibility. Which isn't to say it's not a possibility, since given the lengthy array of human personality types - of which some can be found in other sentient beings as well as others that other sentient beings have that we don't have... I apologize if anyone took a nap while reading that, I am known for rambling on and on and on and on and on just a tad...

    It's Star Trek. I don't want to have to deal with the ethical ramifications when my holo-butler suddenly becomes sentient and accuses me of being a slavemaster.

    A holo-butler with the face of Dr. Lewis Zimmerman? The beginning of another holo strike!
