1. Picard

2. Data

(We weren't allowed to watch Star Trek the original, because my little sister freaked out over it once. I signed on for the later mission.)

I only get one?


1.  Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Kirk,  then Archer ....

2. Ambassador Spock, T'Pol, Data, Tuvok, Spock (ST:90210), and finally Spock (TOS) ....

I love Spock more after Star Fleet.  He is just cooler when he started appearing in TNG and after ... I also liked Spock in the restart when they allowed him to be more human and resisting his emotions and stuff ... but in TOS his character just wasn't developed enough and I really didn't get into him.

I have to go with Picard/Data. TNG is just far and away the best for me.

Extra choice favorite of all time ST-wise: Seven of Nine!! ;)
I am watching Jeri Ryan in the series Body of Proof and I keep picturing her as Seven of Nine.:D She certainly wins the Hottest Borg award.

I liked pretty much all of them. But Archer the least, I guess. Mainly because he simply had the bad luck to appear in Enterprise, which seemed the least inspired/most tired of all the ST series, story-wise.

In the 1960s I knew ST existed, and craved to see it. But in my rural area we either couldn't get the network it played on, or else the local affiliate didn't carry it, figuring it was over the heads of us hicks, I suppose. But one day I somehow got to listen to an episode (audio only) on a radio which had a TV band.

Around 1989 I would watch ST:NG on a tiny 3 inch B&W portable TV, via antenna. It was a poor signal, but sometimes I could make it out. I was living out of a suitcase in Boston. Had a good paying job, but couldn't know if it'd end any time, and so didn't stock my place with anything but bare essentials. Hence, the tiny TV.

In 2001 I had a good 27 inch TV-- but only rabbit ears antenna-- close to the Mexican border in Texas. The number of legible channels available was remarkably similar to what I experienced in the 1960s, with only a couple truly clear ones-- and Voyager played on neither. Indeed, Voyager played on a channel I could barely pick up at all. But sometimes I could discern the outline of Janeway amongst the snow, in the series finale. Once again I was living out of a suitcase, working a job which could end any day, and so not subscribing to things like cable or internet for that reason.

Oh man, this is tough!!

1. Janeway (tough, smart broad -- and her unfolding and evolving over the series was great) with Sisko a close second
2. Tuvok

Completely agree that Data is in a class of his own. And Seven was excellent -- I remember how upset I was when they killed off Kes to bring her in, but then when they really grew her character (like when her assimilated personalities came out, or when they found that single Borg and she tried to "adopt" him) she blew me away.

Overall TNG is my fave series, in large part due to nostalgia, but TNG, DS9 and VOY were all top-notch in my opinion. (I mean, every long-running show has a couple bad years, lol.) I never watched TOS, and I gave up on Enterprise pretty early on.

1. Sisko.  He is my favorite and DS9 is also, imo, the best.

2. T'Pol. She seemed to get people in less trouble than Spock, right? Also, not bad on the eyes. I mean that in a very biological imperative sort of way.

Geoffrey you're a man after my own heart. It's hard to choose just one.

I agree with you about Spock, I've come to enjoy him more as the franchise evolved. What's quite interesting is to see the big change in him after the very first pilot "The Cage" with Capt. Pike. He was quite different in that episode.

Picard and Data are awesome. Jeri Ryan wins many hottest awards... not just Hottest Borg award :) LOL

Sisko: more normal and more mature; makes him a stronger and more genuine character imho.
Spock: every other Vulcan character I've seen display nuanced facial expressions making them poor poker players.

Data: in a class of his own. :)
I like your choices and your reasoning behind them.

Sisko is a very cool character. Very reasoned, very steady emotionally and just a lot of fun to watch.

Spock is the original Vulcan and I think that makes every other Vulcan role harder on the actors that come after him.
