Poll Results!

The last poll asked who was your favorite first officer and the results are in!

First up, with a whopping 75 percent of the popular vote, is Mr. Spock!
I figured Mr. Spock would be the most popular, but didn't realize how many old school Trekkies there are!

Coming in second with 20 percent of the vote was The Next Generation's William T. Riker.
I thought Commander Riker would place where he did. He's a popular, fun character, who embodied a lot of what James Kirk did for the original series.

Next up with the remaining five percent of the vote was Kira Nerys, first officer of Deep Space Nine.At first I thought of Kira as an Ensign Ro knockoff, but fortunately she developed her own personality (and hairstyle) over the years. I think she really came into her own during Deep Space Nine's seventh season.

Which leaves Commander Chakotay and T'Pol, who garnered no votes at all.

Chakotay was never my favorite on Voyager, and I think most people see him in the same light.Unfortunate, but considering Robert Beltran has made comments dissing Voyager and his role in the show, he places where he deserves to be.

T'Pol on the other hand, I really wanted to like when Enterprise started, but in the first two seasons her character walked around as if she had a very large stick up her butt!
By the time the third and fourth seasons aired, writers were getting away from that characterization, but it was too little, too late. The damage had been done.

Thanks to everyone for your votes and look for a new poll coming soon!
