I chose Quark, but I think Sisko was a great Captain and O'Brien was a great Engineer.

I chose Bashir, but I would picked Garek; had he been on the list.

Garek rules!

Oh yes I agree with you about Garak. He was so mysterious, devious, and exciting to watch as his life was exposed in numerous episodes. I so wish I could meet Andrew Robinson and thank him for bringing his talent to that character and just be neat to shake his hand because his other performances are neat too.

Kira Nerys was really the only character i liked in the begining. Shes firey and not afraid to voice her opinion. Ive seen only a few episodes though.

Senior Chief Petty Officer Miles Edward O'Brien. He's a supremely complicated character that never gets enough love and constantly ends up with the short end of the shaft. More "human" than anybody else in the entire franchise. He is the every-man. It very well could have been any one of us in that role and it would have still been just as authentic.

Consider: The only enlisted man on the senior staff, always doing the brunt of the actual work, while everyone else just talks about what they should or shouldn't be doing. Miles constantly makes things happen while someone else gets credit for coming up with the idea. Separated from his family for over half the show (DS9), constanly worried about their well-being while, at the same time, repeatedly putting himself in harms way to save the life of his bosses. He has held more positions than any other character: Conn, Security, Tactical, Maintenance, Transporter Chief, Engineering, Ops, ground-based Soldier, and Intel Operative.

Hell, even the DS9 producers came up with a concept anytime they ran out of ideas they'd make an "O'Brien Must Suffer" episode. If you want more reasons to love O'Brien... "Falco", "Smiley", and who doesn't like a coffee-drinking, Cardie-hating, Asian-loving, Irish minstrel boy?

"The minstrel boy to the war has gone,
In the ranks of death you'll find him...
His father's sword he hath girded on,
And his wild harp slung be-hind him...
Land of song, said the warr-ior bard,
Tho all the world betrays... thee...,
One sword at least thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee."

This is tough. Bashir was always a fave, I love most of the episodes devoted to him. Kira is also amazing, she was such a rich and complex character. And Sisko was a highlight as well and my favorite Captain after Kirk. Plus Quark was such a memorable character. I'm going to give my vote to Kira today, but I oculd see it changing depending on my mood. This is probably the only Trek series where it is so hard for me to have a clear cut favorite, they're all that good.

Kira Nerys

Kira without question.

But I also like most of the other characters, say Odo or Sisko.
