What? No Checkov???

Pavel Checkov is probably the #1 pick, followed by O'Brien and Harry Kim.

whipping boy is a slang term for human punching bag. From all the characters i listed they were all punching bags in star trek. Which one got the worse punches from villains, consoles, etc. in your opinion.

"take us out"...

five-card stud, nothing
wild... and the sky's the
limit.

let's compare the worse hit each character took.

worf had his spine broken when containers came down on top of him.

Laforge got phasered multiple times in that one episode when he was abducted by the retard aliens

Mayweather got abducted by the freakin station and plugged his brain into the computer

Kim got infected with species 8472 germs and was being eaten inside out.

Come to think of it they all had it bad. lol I do like O'brian's elbow thing every episode.

"take us out"...

I've been thinking alot on this and I'm with studly nomad. Obrian is the definitive whipping boy. "Obrian must suffer" says it all, no other character had the writers actively looking to give him a hard time. Plus he wasn't an officer so everyone bossed him around, including his wife.

ok then i'd have to pick harry kim.
he died twice in the series "deadlock and Emanations
he got infected by species 8472 "scorpion"
he was transformed into another species on "favorite son"
he never got promoted
he was slapped by seven several times "the gift and waking moments"
the hirogen beat him up "the killing game"
he was in a prison on "the chute"
he was terrorized by a clown in "the thaw"

Definitely O'Brien in DS9, but in the Original Series, I actually think it was Spock. The writers knew that everyone loved him, so all kinds of weird crap was done to him.

It is interesting how spock went from being picked on to a legend. Hope for you nerds in school.

I think that Matthias was just saying that (he?) is no longer in school, not that he's not a nerd.
