What do you think of Jake's character?

I actually think it was a good, neutral character, and showed how children of Starfleet officers deal with their parents assignments.

It was also cool how he wasn't "the captains boy", as shown in "The Sound of Her Voice", when he conspired with Quark.

An almost non-exsistent character particularly towards the end. He was no more than Sisko's son or Nog's best friend. In fact Nog became such a superior character it was a wonder why Jake was still credited in the main titles. Even still I never hated him, he was just so...meh.

he was there just enough to show the family side of things, but he didn't get as annoying as Wesley

I never hated him, and he did help show the family man in sisko, but towards the end his character was pointless.

He was only played by cirroc lofton, so not much of a trivia question on your part, more of a fail.

wow, there was a lot more than just him.

there was lofton as the jake we see all the time.
we see an young jake in the pilot
'Visitor' also has an adult jake and an elderly jake, and possibly a third in that episode.


can anyone think of any others (without going to wikipedia) ?

[edit] ok, i broke my own rule. ¿apparently, adult and elderly jake in 'Visitor' were played by the same guy( ! ) , and there were no others besides young jake from the pilot, normal jake in the show, and old jake in 'the visitor'

Yes, Tony Todd ... the "Candyman."  Ha.

He's also known in Trek circles for playing Kurn, Worf's brother.

I liked Jake alot.  Much better than KNOW-IT-ALL Weasley Crusher!  Jake is a kid, getting into trouble, messing with girls, growing up, and his staying behind in "Call to Arms" was brilliant! I actually thought Weyoun and Dukat would use him as a hostage against Sisko, with Jake possibly being killed in the process.  Glad I was wrong.

Jake was a good character, though not developed enough, which is probably just a result of their having ten thousand characters to deal with, most of whom were actually in a position to encounter and contend with alien wonders and threats.   Jake just went to school and bummed around the station's mall...   My main gripe was that he was supposed tyo be developing into a writer, but showed no signs of being a thoughtful or creative person.
