How about yourself?March 30, 2014 at 4:04 am #2114
You have good taste. 🙂
Dr McCoy is my absolute favorite character. Spock is second. I also like Picard, Dr. Crusher, Uhura, and Geordy. Worf and Data are both cool too though not my favorites I still like them. I haven’t seen enough of Dr. Bashir – is that doctor in Enterprise?
Inner Light is a good one. My favorites are The Empath, Requiem for Methuselah, City on the Edge of Forever, and Plato’s Stepchildren.April 13, 2014 at 1:48 am #2186
Haha, thank you. I try 🙂
Dr Bashir is from DS9. I’m not really a fan of Enterprise as it took canon Star Trek history, and smashed it to a billion pieces, lol. I tend to consider it an alternate universe in the Star Trek Continuum.
I’m also quite a fan of Riker, I think it would have been good to have done a film perhaps, with him on his first mission as captain of the USS Titan.
I like Data because I identify with him a lot due to a personality disorder. Despite years of trying to “fit in” with Humans, I am farther from doing so than Data was half the time.
Worf always stuck to his principles no matter what, even in the face of losing his families titles and lands, he refused to betray those who had entrusted him. And again, he was an outsider trying to fit in, and often finding it extremely difficult.
All those episodes were also good ones.
I take it you are more a fan of TOS?April 24, 2014 at 1:51 am #2271acegeekParticipant
I could never quite get into TOS, so I haven’t watched all of the episodes. I just recently finished re-watching all of Voyager, I’m currently re-watching DS9, and plan to finish off Enterprise as I quit midway through it’s original run. TNG I’ve watched through many times, but I might re-watch that again too 😀
TOS: Spock and Bones (I want to say Sulu cause I love George Takei, but I honestly know little of Sulu as a character)
TNG: Picard, Data, Riker, Troi
VOY: Janeway, Tuvok, Neelix, Kim, Seven
DS9: Kira, O’Brian, others to be determined as I watch more
ENT: TBDMay 5, 2014 at 8:17 pm #2354MyiaParticipant
My favourite characters are Jim Kirk, Spock, or Worf.
My favourite episode is TOS S01 The Naked Time.
I also enjoy the movie “The Journey Home” because of Checkov’s line: “I am looking for ze nuclear wessels.”May 26, 2014 at 5:11 pm #2557AnonymousInactive
My favorite characters from all the series so far (grew up on Voyager, just finishing up TNG, just starting DS9, watched a few from Enterprise but probably won’t watch anymore): Seven, Janeway, Torres, Guinan.
Also characters I’ve enjoyed: Data, Warf, the Doctor, Tuvok, Harry, Picard
Agree with Steve about Data. You didn’t mention anything about Voyager so I’m not sure if you’ve seen it, but Seven of Nine is my favorite character for the same reason you like Data. You should check her out! Alas, she doesn’t arrive until the 4th season…and you have to put up with Kess until then…May 26, 2014 at 5:26 pm #2558MyiaParticipant
Voyager is my least favourite of the Star Treks, but as a kid I always liked Neelix. And of course, Seven of Nine was fabulous.June 6, 2014 at 3:52 am #2630SamParticipant
I don’t really have a favorite episode/episodes, but here are my favorite characters by show,
TOS; Doctor L McCoy
Next Gen; Data
DS9; Doctor J Bashir
Voyager; 7 of 9
New Movies; Scotty or ChekovJune 6, 2014 at 5:41 pm #2641
Aye, I have caught some of Voyager but not all. Eventually I want to get all the series on Boxset DVD. I had all of TNG but they were lost in an accident.
I’ve recently seen some of Voyager mostly from Scorpion onwards, so from the introduction of Seven of Nine (because my friend likes the Borg story arc).
I’ve not seen a great deal of TOS.
I really like Picard. I don’t like the overly “bureaucratic” style of TNG, where they have to have a conference every time something happens. But Picard was a great captain, with passionate speeches, and willing to do what was necessary. That, and I like Patrick Stuart as both an actor and as a Human being.June 18, 2014 at 7:18 pm #2739AnonymousInactive
My favourite character is TNG Jean-Luc Picard, and that’s not because we are both beautifully bald, but the strength and conviction he gives each story. I saw Patrick Stuart in an Ibsen play in Guildford many years ago and he certainly filled the whole building with his presence.
TNG season 3 is my favourite with the impressive script of “Yesterday’s Enterprise”. For some reason I’ve been very fond of the time travelling episodes of all Star Trek seasons.June 19, 2014 at 12:27 am #2740AnonymousInactive
Spock and Bones. I’m a TOS junkie, but in the new movies sassy Spock is so my favorite person ever.
I really want to say something about Wesley Crusher. He annoys me, but it’s little Wil Wheaton and his current work is quite spectacular. Same with George Takei.July 6, 2014 at 1:14 am #2836M.T. “Toad” NoahParticipant
I was raised in a time when TNG did not yet exist. So my core values are very TOS originated. TNG is nice, Voyager is right OUT 🙁 The minute they failed to do their research on Native American Spirit Guides destroyed the show’s credibility to me and I have not watched another episode. Also, it took the original Trek ideal of people having religious devotion and practice individually and being able to function kindly and on a friendly basis regardless of that fact; and forced one crew-member’s spirituality on the ENTIRE SHIP. NOPE NOPE NOPE. DS9 was pretty good as a soap opera based in the Trek Universe. Enterprise was kinda fun, but I have to admit I didn’t pay close attention (I’m not a tv person in general). The alternate universe new ones are kinda cool, but I prefer the old stuff to stay old stuff and not constantly reinvent the same thing over and over and over. Also, can we get back to cutting edge stories that actually challenge society’s status quo? That was Roddenberry’s point with TOS. Thank you all for listening. I am stepping off the soapbox now. 😀August 29, 2014 at 5:09 pm #3093
I agree with you on the reboot movies how we should get back to challenging the status quo instead of reinventing old stuff, that is one of the issues I have with the new movies.March 5, 2018 at 4:39 am #29538Lori CSpectator
Don’t have a favorite season, but anytime two, or three, of the trifecta (Kirk, Sock, McCoy) were together in a scene.
