I've long been curious about what's made some of the modern Star Trek shows better than the others, and I think it wholly has to do with the characters.  So in this thread, post your favorite and least favorite modern Star Trek characters, and if your feeling wordy, post why...

My favorites:

* Data.............................. (ST-TNG)
* Jean Luc Picard............... (ST-TNG)
* Geordi La Forg................ (ST-TNG)
* Worf............................... (ST-TNG)
* Beverly Crusher.............. (ST-TNG)
* Quark............................. (ST-DS9)
* The Doctor...................... (ST-V)
* Chakotay......................... (ST-V)
* Harry Kim........................ (ST-V)

Those I hated:

* Wesley Crusher................ (ST-TNG)
* Kira Nerys........................ (ST-DS9)
* Julian Bashir..................... (ST-DS9)
* Kathryn Janeway<--- ruined series for me.... (ST-V)
* Entire cast of Star Trek Enterprise..   (ST-E)

For myself I can of see a correlation between identifiable well-made characters, and the success of the series.  

For the old Star Trek, I pretty much like everyone a lot... especially Cpt Kirk, McCoy, and Spock.

I agree.  And that's why I like Deep Space Nine best of all the shows.  They developed those characters much more thoroughly than the other shows.  And the last 9 or 10 episode story arc was awesome!

My favorite DS9 characters are Gul Dukat, Rom and Vic Fontaine!

My least favorite DS9 character is probably Jake Sisko.

Captain Janeway
Neelix
Early Wesley

The likes :

It's the name Deanna Troi with hearts surrounding it.  So basically, one can infer, that I love Deanna Troi.

Absolutely!  How they chose her to lead the cast was totally beyond me. She'd get all wound up to try and come off as the strong leader... and then squeak in that stupid mouse voice of hers!

I love Data, Jean Luc, Worf, Harry Kim, Chacotay, Geordi, and the entire original cast - especially Chekov (what was that?... <3 <3? Looks like an ice cream cone to me!) and Sulu.

Benjamin Sisko is my favorite character in all of Trek.  Just thinking about Sisko's monologue from "In the Pale Moonlight" where he says that he'd have knowlingly let an innocent person be killed to get the Romulans to join the Dominion War still gives me chills.  Garak would be my second pick - I love conflicted characters and he was more developed than some of the main characters have been.

The only character that I ever really disliked was Neelix, who I found annoying.
