I missed that episode. I'd always wondered if Picard actually felt any pain during his assimilation into the Borg.

DS9 definitely had the best overall cast, with Sisko and O'Brien and Dr. Bashir (who became a very interesting character in the last couple seasons after being a boring prettyboy for most of the show), plus a ton of fun recurring characters -- Garak, the Grand Nagus, the Intendant, Gul Dukat ...

But best single character? Gotta be Picard.

One of the oddest juxatpositions I've seen recently was seeing Dr. Bashir as a prince in Syriana. That was screwing with my mind for about half the movie (which isn't a movie you need to have your head screwed with on something as random as that in the first place, either).

That being said, when I was younger, I really enjoyed Quark, for some reason. However, having seen a lot of TNG episodes in the last few years has made me realize that Data pretty much rocked my face off, even moreso that Spiner had to stifle emotion. I always enjoyed Sisko and Picard certainly has some great moments, but I've been a Data guy since I was smart enough to know.

There's a few. Kirk, the man had a way of creating the most intense feuds with people and/or entire species, heh.

Picard, as he's basically the ultimate Starfleet captain. The man's a giant in the field.

Data, even with the self-serving stuff thrown into Nemesis, Data is just a great character. All the "Data episodes" from TNG are among the best.

Q, no more needs to be said about him heh.

O'Brien, as he was the representation of the utterly loyal, down-to-earth blue-collar man who is indispensible to any military force. And yes, I know Starfleet is not solely military but the Dominion War changed lots of things.

GARAK. Everything came together to click for this character, from the casting to the writing for him. Quite possibly the most interesting character in Star Trek (as well as the most humorous, heh).

That episode really made it hurt that much more when they were all killed off at the start of Generations.

Indeed. It's why I can't agree with people who dislike Generations. With the impact of what happens to both Picard and Kirk, along with the (at least I think) funny bits with Data adjusting to the emotion chip, I enjoy the movie a lot.

The nerd side of me also has a bunch of questions stemming from this. Will Picard think hard on settling down? What about him and Beverly? Are there going to be any more Picards? Just seeing something like that happen to a man, especially a favorite character, like Picard is a tough pill to swallow.

Khan is my favorite, because his motivation for wanting revenge on Kirk are entirely genuine, and also Ricardo Montalban is awesomely over the top evil in Star Trek 2.

Another vote here for Bones.

Deanna Troi, first at the time I thought she was a darn hot woman, I so loved the character being an empath. Some kind of lure there for me.

I'd vote for Odo.

My least favorite characters would be Picard and Q. They both seemed like dicks. too arrogant and bossy like the doctor on House.
