So did he. (But by the third TNG movie, 'Insurrection'.)

I notice just about everyone who has posted has gravitated toward one or two of a list of particular traits:
-swagger (e.g., Okona)
-charming (e.g., Bashir)
-thoughtful (e.g., Picard)
-powerful (e.g., Sisko)

It's interesting that no one said Miles O'Brien yet. If I were to have a Scrubs-esque 'bromance' with anyone, it would probably be the Chief. He just seems like the perfect, most understanding, most loyal best friend forever.

Of course, I would probably have to kill Bashir for that spot.
Well the question was "hottest", not necessarily who the most socially or emotionally attractive character was. I broke down the TNG cast because none of them struck me as particularly physically attractive or "sexy" immediately. Sure once you got to know him, Picard was a stud. Off the bat? I'd pass.

And you try telling Diana Troi that its ok because Riker grew out of it. I'm sure that's every girl's dream... For the man of her dreams to eventually come around and decide that middle age is the right time to finally commit. Sorry, but Riker clearly knew that Troi was his "Break glass in case of emergency" woman. Once his looks started to slip, his gut started to grow and his charm failed to wow the nubile Ensigns, he decided "Hey, maybe its time to pack in these wild stallions and give Dianna another go-round". I guess that limited telepathy does not work on Imzadi.

Totally agreed there, which is why I especially enjoyed TNG 'Conundrum', where Ro and Troi have a nice chat together.

Although they really did flesh out the on-off relationship between the two of them. Still, I think I would have liked to have seen her end up with Thomas Riker.

Just wanted to comment that I think it's important to take into account the whole storyline, since the question didn't say, 'hottest first impression'. Just my opinion though.

I was just noticing that there is a difference in what 'hotness' means to different people, especially between women and men in general.

I was going to say Obrien, but I can't look at him without thinking of Cowen from Stargate Atlantis, and he's a bad guy in that.

There's also Ensign Kim, innocent and funny till the end. Although, few characters in Voyager actually changed during it's run

From Voyager ... Chakotay and Ayala (a background character, but was virtually all over Trek).

After that came Enterprise and was swept away by Archer (man is Bakula a hottie to this day as well).
Connor Trineer as well, but he's second to Bakula.
:-D

From TNG ... I must say that Riker in the early seasons was a passing interest, but I grew tired of him (though some of the security officers were hunky ... there was one in the episode 'Dauphin' if I'm not mistaken who was guarding Anya outside the crew quarters and spoke with Wesley briefly).

From DS9 ... Sisko I was thinking about once or twice (in a passing sense), but nothing to write home about.
TOS ... no one really.

The thing about O'brien is that he's not "hot". He has many redeeming qualities, qualities that would make him a fine choice for a husband and partner. I just don't see him as the kind of guy who's picked out from across a crowded room and instantly the thoguht of sweaty things pops into the other person's head.

And for reference, my definition of hotness has always been "Having the qualities of physical attractiveness such as to inspire the desire for a sexual or romantic relationship."

I'm fairly new to the whole Star Trek universe, so I don't have a lot of reference material in the older stuff, but I'm ALL about Nero in the latest movie. Definitely hot!

I'm still trying to think of secondary characters or guest stars that made me swoon, but I just can't recall any right now...

EDIT: Q! omg why didn't I think of Q! I love his smile and his laugh, and the character is just so coy and playful. Love it.

Data is amazing. What initially attracted me to him is his wonderful personality. He's intelligent, kind, and has that childlike wonder and curiosity about everyday life. And he's hilarious without even intending to be! Plus, he's cute.

Harry Kim is also quite adorable too.
