    1. Saru by a long shot
    2. Stamets also way ahead of the rest
    3. Pike

    Would have had Lorca if it wasn't for the big reveal.
    Also have a massive softspot for Detmer but we don't get enough of her to have near the top 3

    I like Reno too but she needs more screen time

    1. Suru
    2. Stamets - I hope we get a little less pining for Culber this season. I want the first season Stamets back.
    3. Pike - I'm looking forward to SNW because of Mount

    Honorable Mentions:

    Lorca - Yeah the character assassination was dumb, but I wonder looking back and having seen season 1 as a binge recently, if he wasn't right about everything

    Tilly - She can be a little annoying, but she's a fun character and I appreciated "Runaway (Also rewatched recently)" more because of her.

    Burnham is a fantastic character, complex and inherently conflicted, with a solid arc, and I think SMG is a great actress even if prone to over-emoting. I love Stamets and don’t think he’s featured nearly enough. Tilly is enormous fun and also wonderfully empathetic and relatable. My favourite though is probably Saru, who’s up there with Spock, Data and Odo as one of Trek’s great ‘alien outsider’ characters, yet among the most human of all.

    I like Tilly because she reminds me of myself, an officer who isn't quite squared away. And I like Lorca because he's played by Lucius Malfoy. Not sure about #3 right now.

    I'd have to break it down by season since the cast has changed significantly so far each time, and attentions to characters have changed too


    1: Pike
    2: Saru
    3: Culber

    ill have to see, with season 3. The Homerization of Tilly that seemed about to happen in s2 needs to stop, though.

    I'll consider only the first 2 seasons for now, although I gotta say I'm very impressed by Ayala, particularly after seeing him in the Ready Room. Good acting, Royal Shakespeare Company actor, eloquent, intelligent, bonuses: that accent plus he's a friend/ colleague of SPS ... So he and his feline friend are certainly on the shortlist for the future.

    1. Saru
    2. Reno
    3. Culber
    4. Prime Giorgiou (R.I.P.)
    5. Stamets

    1. Saru
    2. Stamets
    3. Pike

    Honorable mention: Amanda, Admiral Cornwell, Lorca.

    Tilly is getting to almost be a parody of herself, like JJ Trek Scotty in the movies.
    Still like her.

    Burnham, Tyler, L'Rell, Culber, and Georgiou are all interesting characters as well. Good backstories.

    Also like #1, Spock, Sarek, & Mudd.

    1. Burnham and Saru tied. Don't make me choose!
    3. Stamets and Tilly tied. Ditto!

    Honorable mentions: Cornwall, L'Rell, Spock and Empress Georgiou

    Lorca and Pike are great, just not the kinds of characters I gravitate towards.

    Sahil seems to have become popular fast, judging from the feedback I've seen.

    My top 3:

    - Lorca
    - Tilly
    - Mudd

    My top 3 of original DSC characters:
    1. Ash Tyler (love his growth in s2)
    2. Gabriel Lorca (before the mirror twist)
    3. Paul Stamets

    Counting characters from TOS:
    1. Christopher Pike
    2. Spock
    3. Number One

    I'd be easier with Burnham, if she had not so much screen time and knew basic rules of logic. The only episode in which she behaved like a scientist and a good officer was "New Eden."

    I like them all but currently my top 3 are:

    1. Tilly
    2. Georgiou
    3. Stamets

    Stamets and Jett Reno and Saru are current favorites of mine. Of current non regulars, I also like Captain Pike, Number One and Spock. I liked Captain Lorca and was irritated when they made him evil.

    I’ve always found Michael Burnham a rather tedious character and Tilly has become annoying.
