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

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


Not to mention some funny lines from Quark regarding her appearance:

Quark: [about Rom] He needs a woman with a body and brains.
Leeta: I have brains.
Quark: Sure you do, honey. That's why I hired you. Now, eat up, and then take those brains back to the dabo wheel where the customers can get a good long look at them.

DamnYankees: 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.


Marina Sirtis was farking hot the whole entire run. If I was any of the male cast members on that show, I would've hit on her hard.

angrymacface: The English Major: Tr0mBoNe: Ro Laren.

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

She totally banged Quark.


Nothing said so far goes against my point.

Seriously... Starfleet issued hair bands?
 
2012-09-20 02:23:58 PM

DamnYankees:

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.


*shrugs*
I thought he was a good captain. Not really getting the hate.
 
2012-09-20 02:25:37 PM

Detinwolf: thismomentinblackhistory: I would have put Q on there, as much as I liked him.

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.


You have no taste sir!

Jean Luc Picard and Captain Kirk were by far the most useless characters.

2012-09-20 02:30:51 PM
Why all the hate for Enterprise? I found the first season to be very good, as it's more true to what will happen when he finally have warp drive and the ability to visit other planets. We're not going to be all touchy-feely like TNG, but we're going to shoot first and ask questions later.

The most useless Star Trek character of all time. Even among a crew as terrible as the Enterprise NX-01, he was the most useless out of them.

For all those that said Reed, at least he got a Section 31 subplot in the show.

2012-09-20 02:41:23 PM
I like Enterprise, maybe my favorite ST series. I think the theme song was great, if a little hokey. I think Roddenberry would've loved it. I'm actually kinda surprised it isn't more popular. The Xindi arc was great, even if it didn't mesh perfectly with canon. If there was a season with Shran replacing Reed and UPN hadn't gone tits up, it would've gotten to seven seasons too. I think it would be tied with DS9 if that were the case. Call me crazy if you want. Bakula can't be the worst thing about a series with Reed and Merryweather. Hoshi was horrible too, but the character concept had a ton of potential.

The entirety of the Voyager cast blew, so I don't get why half of Enterprise's crew sucking makes it worse somehow.

Reed's main thing, he came from generations of Royal Navy officers, and early in the show clashed a lot with the captain about ship armaments and military preparedness.

Merryweather was just sorta there, and got kidnapped by bad guys once or twice. Like the sentient ship repair station.

Bluemookie: 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.


It's not a joke. The finale of ENT is revealed to be a holodeck program of Riker's, set during the TNG episode Pegasus while he tries to figure out what to do.

The one thing I really loved about Enterprise was the MACOs - space marines.

But Diana Muldaur was no DeForest Kelley -- with whom she had worked with on an episode of the original Star Trek

Actually, she was on two episodes of TOS - she played Ann Mulhall/Thalassa in "Return to Tomorrow", and Miranda Jones in "Is There Truth In No Beauty?"

Reed sucked. There was an episode dedicated to how no one knew him or liked him in anyway. They had to sort through his poop to figure out his favorite food. Horrible character top to bottom. Even in the deus ex machina episodes he sucked, no one wanted to marry him when they got stranded in the past.

Writers didn't help though, tried to make him and Trip friends when they had already established that Trip and Archer were best friends.

Season 4 of ENT was by far the best season of Trek.

I just finished rewatching The Doomsday Machine. I hope William Windom got a nomination for that role.

He almost did a Shatner chew-job with the role but pulled back nicely when he needed to.

Lovely episode.

I thought he was all right. Maybe it was his accent that made him cool. I liked the episode where he was trying to disarm the Romulan mine, anyway.

I think the guy is a good actor, just the character was horrible. There are some bright spots based upon acting skills, and I think he was gonna sacrifice himself during that episode because no one liked him. Could be wrong on that, but pretty sure

It's too bad Jack Nicholson didn't successfully kill off Winn Adami in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
 
2012-09-20 03:14:52 PM
I'll also stand up for Voyager.

Yes, there were big sucky parts. Neelix, in particular, annoyed the hell out of me. So that's a fair shot at the series.

The finale is, likewise, pretty awful (LOL, let's ignore our previously established rules against time shenanigans to use those to get Voyager home!)

However, the premise (Monster of the Week in unexplored deep space) was excellent, and I always prefer those types of episodes of Star Trek series to the political maneuverings of the Federation.

Janeway was an enjoyable captain, and actually managed to be funny sometimes. The Doctor is my favorite non-human Trek character, and Voyager had the best Q episodes.

Wow, remember 1995? TNG just ended, DS9 was doing well, Voyager was about to start and Generations had just come out and First Contact was on the way. People sure did love Star Trek in 95

Possibly. Can't say I really enjoyed his bit part in Heroes, though. Haven't seen him in any other roles.

I never thought that his character was useless, though I did think his acting was terrible.

She eventually becomes Security Chief at DS9 as part of the Bajoran militia, rejoins Starfleet when Bajor joins the Federation after Picard gives her a uniform and note, and is captain of Deep Space Nine after serving for years as first officer. And yes, she and Quark are knocking earlobes.

thenewmissus: 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.

You're not alone. Show for show, it was the most consistent. There are far more episodes of TNG and DS9 are simply unwatchable.

Seven of Nine was one of the most interesting characters in Star Trek and not just because of her tits. Well not just because of her tits. That's what everyone immediately thought but as a Borg who was assimilated as a child and slowly regained her humanity, she was a very interesting character. And in the episodes where she had different personalities, Jeri Ryan proved to be a pretty good actress. She has a nice singing voice too.

The Doctor in Voyager was also a pretty good character. As was the Klingon chick.

The characters in DS9 were the best. There were no redeeming characters in Enterprise.

I'll argue for Jake Sisko
His character initially wasn't more than Wussly Crusher 2.0
but by the time the Dominion War was underway, he was the representative of the civilians in the war. He was the eyes and ears, sharing the war stories, good and bad, with those on the outside.
It's not a big role, but one that you rarely see as part of the regular cast.

Seven was a good character, and paired very nicely with the Doctor. I think she would have been better if Voyager hadn't completely neutered the Borg throughout the series, though. Seven was one of at least three or four plotlines that had "a Borg regains its humanity". First there was a group of renegade Borg that helped Chakotay, then they had the Borg kids show up.

B'Elanna was terrible. She had potential, but the writing for her character was really inconsistent. It was like they just didn't know what to do with her most of the time.

As useless of Harry was, at least it was fun to see how many ways the writers could torture him. He was like Voyager's answer to O'Brien.

Other than the Warp 9.5 episode, the worst has got to be when the crew finds out they're actually the copy of the original ship from the Demon class planet.
I mean, shiat, who wrote that? Laziest conceit ever.

List is incomplete without Tasha Yar. She was always advising aggressive action, but Picard would never listen to her.

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: but by the time the Dominion War was underway, he was the representative of the civilians in the war. He was the eyes and ears, sharing the war stories, good and bad, with those on the outside.


Nor the Battle to the Strong.

"More than anything, I wanted to believe what he was saying. But the truth is, I was just as scared in the hospital as I'd been when we went for the generator. So scared that all I could think about what was doing whatever it took to stay alive. Once that meant running away and once it meant picking up a phaser. The Battle of Ajilon Prime will probably be remembered as a pointless skirmish but I will always remember it as something more, as a place I learned that the line between courage and cowardice is a lot thinner than most people believe."

It was kinda interesting to see them actually follow up on that, though. They had a whole duplicate ship and crew out there.

I'm not sure about worst episode, since it's been a while since I've watched the series. I do remember not enjoying any of the "Chakotay explores his spirituality" episodes. A lot of that is probably due to the fact that it's obvious that Robert Beltran just didn't give a shiat and doesn't hide it.

I think that was sort of the point, they established early on that Janeway hated the thought of time travel paradoxes but over the years she became such a psycho biatch about getting everyone home that she didn't care. How do the time cops figure into all that? Who knows. That was another cool episode, where they go back to 1996 and meet Sarah Silverman. I was actually at Griffith Park when they shot that. Didn't get to meet Sarah though.
