Blog #4 : Random Best Of Trek
Captain Kirk. He was the man, he kicked ass and got the ladies. Who wouldn't want to be him!!
#2 Best First Officer:
Spock. He was smart, strong and logical. His vast knowledge of science often saved the day.
#3 Best Fighter:
Data. He has the strength of 10 men, he's fast, he's smart and he feels no pain. He would be the ultimate fighter against any one he fought.
#4 Hottest Female Character:
Seven of 9
Uhura (2009 film version)
Uhura!!! Actress Zoe Saldana is so hot!!! She is without a doubt the winner of this contest.
#5 Best Bad Guy:
Locutus. Picard was transformed from being a good guy to being the voice of the Borg. As Locutus Picard was forced to use his vast knowledge of starfleet operations to aid them in their invasion of the Federation. Picard was forced to kill friends, but his knowledge of the Borg helped Data to stop the Borg and stop them a second time in their second invasion (Star Trek: First Contact)
#6 Best Alien Crew Member:
Worf. Klingon warrior and hero. Worf was the first klingon cast member and the first to be seen as a good character. It was great to learn more about the klingon warrior culture through Worf. Worf was excellent on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and also excellent when he joined the cast of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in the 4th season. When we last seen Worf on the movie 'Star Trek: Nemesis' it appeared that Worf was staying on board the Enterprise-E, we would assume he was Picard's new First Officer following the death of Data and promotion of Riker. I even met Michael Dorn at a Star Trek convention, the actor who plays Worf. He was a real cool dude.
#7 Best Trek Character Interaction:
Kirk/Spock/McCoy. Their friendship, arguments and brotherhood were always priceless and touching. Spock and McCoy would always argue and Kirk would be stuck in the middle. McCoy would always speak his mind even when it upset Kirk or Spock. It was always great to see these 3 characters together.
#8 Best Trek Extended Family Member:
Sarek (Spock's Dad)
Lwaxana Troi (Troi's Mom)
Kern (Worf's Brother)
Rom (Quarks Brother)
Lwaxana. She had a mad crush on Picard and was always making him feel uncomfortable. Her episodes were always funny, but at times serious. She was last seen after having married Odo and expecting a child from another guy. She was never seen again in Trek and sadly actress Majel Barret Roddenberry passed away so Lwaxana will not be seen again.
#9 Best Star Trek series:
Star Trek: TOS
Star Trek: TNG
Star Trek: DS9
Star Trek: Enterprise
The Next Generation was the best, no doubt. They told great character driven stories and didn't always rely on special effects. Voyager is the worst series, that series relied on special effects, gimmick stories and a hot chick in a tight silver body suit for ratings. TNG had a great cast with great characters and told great stories that really made you think.
#10 Best Enemy Empire:
The Borg Collective
The Romulan Star Empire
The Klingon Empire
The Dominion. The leaders of the Dominion are the shape shifter race that Odo comes from. But they are evil and seek revenge against all 'solids' including the Federation. They enslave other races and force them to do their bidding. The Vorta are the voice for the Dominion, while the Jem'Hadar are the drug addicted super soliders. The Dominion conquered the Cardassian Union and went to war with the Federation, Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire and almost defeated them all!! They kicked ass and almost destroyed the Federation...
Well that's it for now for Best of Trek. I'm sure I'll continue with this later at some time. Let me know what you think if your a Trek fan!!
