The humans in Star Trek are what we could be someday, but which species from ST do you think are most like humans are today? I vote Ferengi.

Pessimistic much? No. It's definitely the Bajorans.

Well, each Star Trek species is a representation of a different facet of humanity. Sometimes we're Ferengi, sometimes we're Bajoran, Klingon, Vulcan etc. So I don't think you can say which species are most like present day humans because it varies, mainly because we're human. :logical:

Based on physical appearance, definately Bajoran. My nose might be a bit old and wrinkled, but I definately do not have the earlobes (or the bald scalp) to be a Ferengi!

We are like the Borg!  Everywhere you go people are plugged into each other via cell phone, blackberry, laptops.  We also walk around with ipods in our ears.  its only a matter of time before our gadgets become implanted.

Out of those choices, either Ferenghi or Borg, hard to decide. Ferenghi, because a lot of people are animalistic like them, and want riches like them. Borg, because 'We only wish to improve life for all species,' which pretty much says that they want to force everyone else to accept their technology, which a lot of people and big corporations do.
