and tell me with a strait face that didn't feel like the opening to a porno. Go ahead and try. I dare you.
This show also wins the award for having the dumbest Enterprise.
In my opinion Neelix is the guy you're glad you're friends with, but you would never under any circumstances introduce him to your other friends.
At least he was capable of some sort of competence. Janeway on the other hand.... how did she become a captain? Seriously, how? I swear she is good at everything BUT being a captain.
Harry Kim was a bad combination of Sulu and LaForge with the awesome of neither. The writers never gave him the Character Development they should have.
Kes was a bad idea. Her character, how she was introduced, how she was removed... just.. bad...
Dr. Pulaski was bad, Troi was annoying for a while, but she had her moments of awesome. Wesley Crusher was the worst for a long time, but even he has been surpassed by the
worst, most god awful, bad, terrible, horrible no good Star Trek character of ALL
I cannot stand JJTrek Uhura. There is nothing good about JJTrek Uhura. Sure the actress is good looking, but nothing, nothing can redeem JJTrek Uhura in my eyes.
Real Uhura was elegant, ladylike and attractive. She teased Spock for fun, she liked cute things, she was competent and capable, but screwed up, failed, and had her limits. She felt like a real person.
JJTrek Uhura is a bossy sarcastic brat. She seems unbelievably competent, she looks more like a Star Trek themed hooker than a Star Trek character, the whole relationship with Spock is silly, nothing about her is sympathetic or redeeming. Say what you will Wesley Crusher, but at least he was an original character. They took the real Uhura and butchered her into the all the bad parts of Wesley and T'its. Her entire being feels manufactured for the explosion and boob fueled generation.
Real Uhura was someone to look up too. JJTrek Uhura is someone you ask "Cash or Credit?"
I agree Neelix was almost a cool character. If you look up Rennesaince man on Wikipedia it mentions him. If only he didnt have those pukey "Look im a guest on Arsenio Hall circa 1993" type outfits etc.
JJ Uhura is every catty woman I have ever known only after the guy with the biggest paycheque or most power and treat everyone else like trash at least she is realistic :\.
Polaski just seemed like a very real person maybe not someone you would like but Star trek can be a bit like a medical drama or police procedural in spaace and you dont like everybody you work with.
I liked Wesley as a kid I guess he was a reference point and am not as annoyed by him as other characters like Lwoxanna Troi I was sticking to regular cast members but ya she is awful. And i never liked Tasha Yar but she gets eaten by a Tarpit/ garbage bag monster. Not to mention "Guess who Piccard slept with? Whoopi Goldberg" Guinan...
Harry kim was such an Asian stereotype. Good in school, neat and tidy plays a musical instrument.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)
