Dax has 8 lifetimes of memories, Seven of Nine and Data whom both have just extensive knowledge of everything, T'Pol and Spock the eternal Logical mind of Vulcans plus these two also qualify as scientists. So taking in all aspects of intelligence(common sense, mathmatics, enginering, command, logic, reasoning, ingenuity, and reasoning, critical thinking and abstract thought). I think I would go with Dax. but please give your own description of who is smarter using those qualifications.

and the rest in order, Data, Seven of Nine, Spock and T'Pol.

There is a differance between intelligence and wisdom.
Data is obviously more intelligent; Spock has the wisdom of a couple hundred of years through expierence. I would take wisdom over intelligence anyday. :logical:

Is Data more "intelligent," or is it he's just been programmed with more information than an organic brain would hold?

;)

:logical:

Ah!! But, yet he's still just a programed machine. Data is a walking/talking computer with as much information as any android could hold. He just didn't have the wisdom to use it properly to his advantage at all times.
Wisdom would direct one how to use your intelligence....not saying he wasn't wise in some ways, after all, he did learn much from time spent consulting with Troi, Riker Picard etc., learning a great deal. However, compared to a Vulcan mind, he had much to learn imo.

I would go with, in the order of smartest to least smart:

Data, Dax, Spock, T'Pol, then Seven of Nine. Seven may have access to a vast amount of information but that doesn't necessarily make her the smartest.

Don't forget several times thoughout DS9 Dax uses previous knowledge to help out. Like The Seige episode episode. She also was in command of the Defiant in the war several times.

and I didn't put Guinan just like other characters like Q as I was only picking from the main cast.

Data was probably the smartest, couple that with his limitless perfect memory and you have a super genius.  Spock is a close second, I mean the guy remember the computation for time travel after having been dead in Star Trek IV!

wouldn't spock be above data if he can calculate how to travel through time while data can't.
