Q was the most fun character. Picard was the definitive captain. Troi was the most 1980’s addition. McCoy the most emotional. It’s between Spock and 7 of 9 for the least emotional. Nurse Chapel for the coolest hairstyle. The Doctor for human interest and his bumbling attempts to understand humans.
Leonard Nimoy was a genius at bigging up his role. He acquired a new superpower at least once per series. Still, if I were Scotty, I'd be fecked off. It seems Scotty could be relied upon to fill the oil and tune up the engines, but if anything serious needed fixing, up Spock would pop to supervise that he was reversing the polarity on the right anti-matter chamber or whatever. If I were Scotty I'd want to shout 'Bog off, I don't come snooping down your tachyon microscope every time you come across a new energy form you can't catagorise."
