Coolest races - the Borg. I'm going for inventive and truly frightening. Completely amoral. Yikes.

Best doctor - McCoy hands down

Most entertaining recurring character - Harry Mudd

Best captain - Picard

Least likeable captain - Archer (I see a consensus here, though I never watched Enterprise.) Otherwise, I'd go with Janeway.

Best hair - Troi

Worst hair - Troi

Best costumes - Do movies count? I'd take ST II

Best episode - The one with Picard marooned on the planet with the alien captain, and they had to learn to communicate with each other. I concur as well. Paul Winfield I believe was the other captain. He also played the captain of the Reliant in Star Trek II, as well as the General in the Gropos episode of B5.

Best series - DS9

Best love story - None. I think ST did a lousy job with love stories. IMHO.

Worst episode - Any episode featuring Wesley Crusher

Funniest character - Qwark

Most boring character - Wesley Crusher

Best regular character - Seven of Nine (and not for the eye candy!)

I forgot about Barclay. He was a good character and well acted.

Another of my favorite episodes was TNG where Troi's mother had been kidnapped and she and Picard had to flirt to get her away from the captors.

Coolest race: The Pakled (Just kidding) No probably Race 8472 because they were the most monsteresque alien creatures that Star Trek ever did without the cheesiness that came with a lot of them due to bad special effects. They were also the only people who could justifiably get away with killing the borg unlike that rubbish last episode of Voyager and that ridiculously powerful shuttle craft.


Best doctor: Have to say the EMH, simply because of his bedside manner. (I refer you to the episode with the Vidians, in which they came into the sickbay, scanned the Doctor and said 'According to my readings, you're not here,' and the Doctor replied, "believe me, I wish I weren't!" His saracasm had me in stitches!


Most entertaining recurring character: Rick, or was it Vic, Can't remember, the self aware holgram on DS9. Primarily because I'm a Jazz fan


Best captain: Picard, because of his leadership skills, even though I prefer Kirk.


Least likeable captain: Janeway, simply because she got too gungho at the end.


Best hair: Klaa.


Worst hair: Kirk's combover.


Best costumes: The Star Trek six starfleet uniform, I can't stand the pyjamas they wear in the later series.


Best episode: The Drumhead TNG because of its very human witchhunt style storyline.


Best series: The original series.


Best love story: Star Trek can't do romance.


Worst episode: Most of Voyager.


Funniest character: EMH again.


Most boring character: Wesley


Best regular character: Kirk.

Coolest race : Most interesting...Platonians

Best doctor : McCoy

Most entertaining recurring character : Q

Best captain : Kirk

Least likeable captain : Janeway (not Kate Mulgrew's fault, though.)

Best hair : Worf from DS9

Worst hair : Kirk from the movies.

Best costumes : ST : Enterprise. Not that TOS go-go dancer outfits weren't nice :wink:

Best episode : TOS's ep 035 "The Doomsday Machine," or DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations."

Best series : TOS

Best love story : I agree with Merle, IMO ST did a lousy job with love stories, but if made to make a decision, I'd say T'Pol's burgeoning and unfinished romance on ST : Enterprise.

Worst episode : The first season of ST : Voyager and/or anything including Wesley.

Funniest character : Barclay

Most boring character : Wesley

Best regular character : Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Robert Picardo's "Doctor," and T'Pol in order of series appearance. What, you wanted me to pick one? :twisted:

OH, I just have to get into this one. BTW, I'm not too knowledegable about the names of the episodes, so bear with me.

Coolest race- Cardassians. Cold, calculating, vicious and political.


Best doctor- Bashir. Whenever it was a Bashir centered story the episode usually rocked.


Most entertaining recurring character- Grand Nagus.


Best captain- Sisko. They put him in charge of the Federations only ship that was made for war for a reason.


Least likeable captain- Janeway. That entire series, actually. Except the doctor.


Best hair- Worf.


Worst hair- Janeway. Marge Simpson, anyone?


Best costumes- The costumes from DS9. The STO movies, their uniforms made them look like college professors.


Best episode- Tie between two DS9 episodes. The one where the defiant was destroyed by the Dominion's new weapons and they let the pods go to, "spread fear through their ranks." or the one where Bashir and Jake Sisko are sent to the outpost under attack by Klingons. It was quite sad when Jake runs out during the Klingon shelling and finds that Officer in the crater with his stomach blown open. "Lay me on my back. I want to die looking at the sky, not with my face in the dirt."


Best series- DS9.


Best love story- Bashir and O'brian.


Worst episode- about a 71 way Tie. 3/4s of the TNG episodes sucked.


Funniest character- Quark.


Most boring character- Wesley Crusher.


Best regular character- Gul Dukat.
