I guess we're not counting Enterprise as Star Trek? I guess it would kind of ruin the list of all of the characters were from the one series.

Yeah, this...as much as I like Wil, I'm surprised his TNG character didn't make this list.

Know how I know you didn't RTFA?

hey now, Seven was VERY useful. Especially on those lonely nights...
 
2012-09-20 10:27:49 AM
I've always been kinda neutral to Voyager and never understood the hate for that series. But then, I only watched the first season or two. Maybe all the suck came later? I may be biased and will consume anything Trek related considering that I even thought Enterprise was okay.

I don't think putting Jake there is fair. His relationship with Captain Sisko was absolutely central to that show. Jadzia was far more useless.

DamnYankees: I don't think putting Jake there is fair. His relationship with Captain Sisko was absolutely central to that show. Jadzia was far more useless.


Jake Sisko should get a pass for one reason: The Visitor. And Rapture. Making the decision to cut off Sisko's visions...but yes, I agree about Jadzia, at least until she and Worf had some scenes together. DS9 had the most solid of casts. TNG had Troi, VOY had 7of9, and ENT had T'Pol as nothing more than technobabble eye candy. Troi and Riker were two of the most useless characters ever seen in the Trek universe.
 
2012-09-20 12:13:59 PM
The entire cast of Voyager? Seven of Tits was *not* useless.

I do agree with the Worf in Insurrection. He kind of reminded me of Norm on Cheers in that he just wanders on to the bridge of the Enterprise when it's convenient even though he's normally several quadrants away...

(Doors to turbolift squeak open. The entire bridge crew turns to see who it is)
Bridge Crew: "Worf!!!"
Riker: "How does some blood-wine sound Worfie?"
Worf: "I don't know. I usually finish it before it gets a word in!"

And Troi was quite useful...

The English Major: ENT had T'Pol as nothing more than technobabble eye candy.


Disagree with this. I thought T'Pol was a pretty good character. The security officer, whatever that guy's name was, was the most useless.
 
2012-09-20 12:28:05 PM
I actually rather like Ethan Phillips as an actor. It's unfortunate that he played one of my least favorite characters in the history of Star Trek.

DamnYankees: Disagree with this. I thought T'Pol was a pretty good character. The security officer, whatever that guy's name was, was the most useless.


Malcom Reed. Though I would say that, in hindsight, Mayweather and Sato take the Useless Cake. T'Pol was interesting in a few of the Vulcan episodes, but early on she was as annoying as Neelix.
 
2012-09-20 12:40:10 PM
list was surprisingly good. I agree with subby.
the list could have been short by just replacing the individuals with the cast of voyger

enterprise was terribad, but but but btu blalock is so hawt

I dont even consider Mayweather a main character. That's how useless he was. He's like Barclay in TNG, in terms of screen time, not awesomeness.
 
2012-09-20 12:40:28 PM
that was nerdy even for a topless robot article...

Also, the vulcan chick from enterprise was hot enough to not be useless.
 
2012-09-20 12:50:26 PM
They forgot Biggs Darklighter.

Ro Laren.
 
2012-09-20 01:27:55 PM

Tr0mBoNe: Ro Laren.


She was redeemed in the DS9 relaunch novels. I need angrymacface to back me up on this.

She totally banged Quark.
 
2012-09-20 01:54:29 PM
All I know is that I would've recontaminated a decontaminating T'Pol, like, 100 times.
 
2012-09-20 02:01:36 PM
What about the Traveller? The aids patient from another galaxy.
 
2012-09-20 02:02:11 PM
I would have put Q on there, as much as I liked him.
 
2012-09-20 02:04:05 PM
The Ferengi were washouts as villians in TNG.
 
2012-09-20 02:04:49 PM
"When audiences didn't buy that a beautiful Ocampa (portrayed by Jennifer Lien, who deserved better) would shack up with an alien who resembled a ginger Mr. T stricken with chicken pox, it paralleled the concerns the show's producers were having about the romance."

Now THAT phrase is hilarious!

Some people hate Q as a convenient plot device, but I thought John DeLance was a great actor and loved seeing his interactions with Picard.
 
2012-09-20 02:05:36 PM
Hey subby Seven of Nine had some use, three uses in fact.
 
2012-09-20 02:07:39 PM
I rather liked Pulaski myself.. I must have been about 18 back then, but she was rather MILFy. A bit feistier than Dr. Crusher, with prettier eyes.

Also the actress played the blind assistant to the Medusian ambassador, back in the day.
 
2012-09-20 02:07:48 PM
I object. I LOVE STAR TREK VOYAGER. I have the box set and I literally watched it on my computer dvd player for weeks. I went through the entire series three times and still have a disk in my computer right now. I like the other Star Trek's as well, but I have to admit, Voyager is my favorite. It is the only box set that I have ever purchased.

/let the ridicule begin
//I'm thick skinned (kinda like Neelix).
///Tuvok was freaking awesome
////And the B'Elana/Tom Paris romance was sweet.

You do know that most health insurance plans cover therapy sessions and other forms of mental care, right? Perhaps you should avail yourself of such services.

Deanna Troi? Something about her appeals to me.

Please explain this quote from TFT...

"If you count yourself amongst the ranks of the dozen or so fans of Enterprise in existence and consider this entry a cheap shot, remember that even the show's producers thought so little of it that they made the series' finale into a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode."

Having only seen the first 2 episodes of Enterprise, I'm not sure I get the joke. I did enjoy STTNG, but everything after sucked IMO.

Yeah I rewatched the season of TNG with her, and granted she got off to a really bad start talking sh*t on Data, but at the end, I rather liked her character. She was a total badass. Still prefer Crusher, though.

FirstNationalBastard: Harry Kim was useless.

They would have killed him off if Garret Wang he hadn't appeared on some 100 sexiest people list.


They did kill him off. Too bad he didn't stay dead.

They link to the last couple minutes of the final episode of Enterprise, which ends up being on the holo-deck with Riker and Troi watching historical footage. I didn't think it was all that bad of a scene.

The most semi-major character in Star Trek is Leeta.

Her only purpose was to be Rom's hot wife.

I didn't find her that hot until the last few seasons, when they started making her wear the regular uniform. Plus she seemed a bit fitter then.

Oh, Basher got to bang her for a year or two first. But we didn't get to watch.

Alphax: I didn't find her that hot until the last few seasons, when they started making her wear the regular uniform. Plus she seemed a bit fitter then.


Exactly the same. I honestly find her hard to look at in those early seasons. But frankly, everyone is hard to look at in seasons 1 and 2.

I've recently started rewatching Enterprise (in the last 7 or 8 eps of the first season right now) and I got to say, I always felt that ENT was unfairly maligned.

Far and away the worst thing about the show was Bakula. He was a terrible choice for that role. A lot of the other characters were underdeveloped and underutilized, making them seem boring also. But at the core they were all good concepts.

I was in the "Oh, it's another titty mctitterson' camp when I first saw Blalock on the cast as T'Pol, but I felt she did a pretty good job actually and really grew over time.

In rewatching from the beginning like I am, I've really come to appreciate even more her being the voice of reason on the ship, calling the crew out on their prejudices and preconceptions and warning Archer when he's farking with shiat he doesn't understand or isn't his business. That was a perspective sorely missing in ST up to that point.

Completely agree. That show isn't nearly as bad as its remembered as being. Flox, T'Pol and Trip were all very good, and I don't really even think Bakula is that bad. That might just be because I love Bakula.

I watched most of the series, but a few episodes into the last season, after some rather good episodes, I suddenly lost all desire to watch more. I'm not sure why.
