Picard (no contest)
Spock (among the ones that stay in that position for most of the show)
Odo (I like all those non-human obsever type characters like Spock, Data, Odo and such.)
Bashir (Favorite DS9 character)
Trip (I know, nobody but me likes Enterprise, but he was my favorite from that season. Scotty and Geordi are close, though.)
Paris (Hoped to get away without any VOY, but he is clearly the most memorable; Sulu always seemed to be a fairly minor character for a member of the core bridge team to me, but I am not that much of a TOS guy.)
Dukat (was there any other real villain?)

Also, what about stuff like Science, Operations, Tactical and such? This crew definitely needs more Data.

It's hard to use science or tactical because not all incarnations of ST had these positions.

Spock was both the Science and 1st Officer.

Kirk's crew had a communications officer etc.

Not all crews had tactical. I tried to pick positions that most if not all the crews had.

Best Captain - Kirk. The original and best
First Officer - Riker. A Kirk in the making.
Security - Tuvok. Actually a bit of a psychopath
Doctor - McCoy. I don't think he was ever sober.
Chief Engineer - Scotty. There can be only one.
Helmsman - Anyone but Wesley.
Villain  - Jack the Ripper, AKA Beratis, AKA Kesla, AKA Hengist, AKA the Enterprise's computer, AKA Jaris, AKA Hengist (again)

Best Captain - Janeway (she's mental and push her too hard and she'll blow up the ship)
First Officer - Riker (yum!)
Security - Worf (Klingon's are cool)
Doctor - Bones from the latest film (Karl Urban ... yum! yum!)
Chief Engineer - B'elanna Tores (she might get it together with Worf, although Scotty from the latest film played by Simon Pegg would be fun)
Helmsman - Yeah whatever
Villain - Borg
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: Dan on December 02, 2012, 07:47:35 pm
Security - Worf (Klingon's are cool)

He's a wimp that can get beaten by almost anyone in the Star Trek universe.

Watch:

Worf gets Pwned (Extended Version) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nqb-o1ub54#)

Villain - Borg

Unfortunately, First Contact ruined the concept. :-/

Villain: sela

Post by: TheBestYoucan on December 02, 2012, 10:43:15 pm
Best Captain: Picard. I love Kirk. But Picard is what Kirk could have been if he had learned from his youth. I mean, Picard got stabbed by a Nausicaan through his heart (and laughed when it happened) he was so cocky. After that, he humbled himself and became the Picard we know today.

First Officer: Spock. Again, I love Riker, but Spock outwits him 9/10 times I'm sure.

Security: I wanted to go with Warf but unfortunately Warf is too emotionally charged. Odo, despite the fact that he becomes a useless bucket of water every so often, is much more versatile.

Doctor: State the nature of your emergency! The Doctor, Voyager.

Chief Engineer: While LaForge was a genius.. Montgomery Scott had to do much more with much less more often.

Helmsman: Hated his Holodeck programs, but the man could pilot the hell out of a ship. Tom Paris

Villain - Q! IS there any other villain? (Ok, maybe Moriarty). Surprised nobody has said.. KHAAAAAAAAN!
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: eagleday on December 30, 2012, 03:40:35 pm
Best Captain: Jean-Luc Picard. Although I have one thing in agreement with Capt. Janeway: we're both hate Temporal Mechanics.
First Officer: William T. Riker. Undoubtedly the one you need to back you up in the direst times. Spock is OK but you have to (literally) think twice with Vulcans.
Security: Worf, definitely.
Doctor: Leonard McCoy and Emergency Medical Hologram ('The Doctor').
Chief Engineer: Geordi LaForge. I imagine an ideal engineer is a young man, while I pay high regard to Montgomery Scott.
Helmsman: Tom Paris. You need a real pilot who can fly not only a starship, but a piston-powered biplane as well.
Villain : Resistance is futile (should I say the name?)

Best Captain - Sisko
First Officer - Riker
Security - Worf

Captain - Jean-Luc Picard
1st officer - Spock
Security - Odo
Doctor - EMH (which is great as long as you have power on board)
Chief Engineer - Charles Tucker III
Helmsman - Jadzia Dax (if my memory serves me correctly, she was a helmsman aboard the Defiant)
Villain -  Moriarty (if one can beat Sherlock Holmes and Data...)

Trip (I know, nobody but me likes Enterprise, but he was my favorite from that season. Scotty and Geordi are close, though.)

I love Enterprise - It's actually my favourite

And I also noted that ops was missing though security and tactical are pretty much the same. Worf and Malcolm each covered both

Captain .... hmm... this is tougher than I thought - I'll get back to you
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew

Worf
Bones
Trip
Dax (hope yer right crozebra) also I may have seen ashley judd in this position too (TNG)
Orion girls

Ops: DATA
Science: Spock
Transporter Cheif: O'Brien
Miscellaneous Hottie: Gaila (Rachel Nichols)

My other favourite is the newest (abrams?) version of star trek

Best Captain: Kathryn Janeway -- there's something to be said for being psycho -- probably drank too much sugary soda
First Officer: Kira Nerys -- big chip on her shoulders for good reason -- We come in peace, fire the photon torpedos!
Security: Tasha Yar -- a little angsty but a good woman in a clinch
Doctor: Beverly Crusher -- most sensible woman they ever had on the show
Chief Engineer: Q -- if he can't fix it nobody can, besides, he'd be the token guy on the ship
Helmsman: T'Pol -- someone who can both steer and think for herself
Villain: Villain?  We don't need no stinking villain! We got girl power!  Babes in space forever!

I wonder - do Q really have a sex? Because him assuming a male gender (and his mate from that one Voyager episode a female one) might have simply been a viewer-friendly presentation.
Also, with Janeway, Kira and T'Pol on deck, you do not need any villain when you have each other.

Q had a daughter did he not? Or maybe it was a human who joined Q - can't remember how that came about. Just remember the safari outfits.

He did mate with a Q who took on a female appearance and had a son. Given that everything we ever see about the Q is just an image for humans to come remotely close to understanding anything, however, this does not tell much.
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: Gman707 on February 14, 2013, 11:38:20 pm
The Q can be either sex. While q apears as the same male to starfleet to alow him to be identified, he demonstrates that he can apear as anything in tng. He apears to janeway in his male form when he wishes to mate with her to apeal to her sexuallity. Doubtless, had she been lesbian he would have chosen a female form.
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: ToneBender on February 15, 2013, 05:53:44 am
I'm working my through TNG on Netflix and actually happened on the episode today - It was an archaeologist that picard knew and they ended up doing a robin hood challenge for Q and in the end Q took her with him. Also Q joked that if he'd realized how easily this girl could get picard worked up he would have appeared as a female. S04E20 Qpid

Q would also make a good tactical officer...

I don't remember about Adm. Janeway being psycho or drinking soda. She is known to be a strict guardian of Starfleet Prime Directive and Codes even in the completely foreign Delta quadrant, and the foremost defender of crew safety. For that very reason, she deserves to be an admiral. Oh, and she loves pecan pie and tea, hates temporal mechanics as much as I do, and is more sensible than Bev Crusher.

I wonder why you don't mention Ro Laren. She's a far better helmsman than T'Pol. In fact: T'Pol never touches NX-01 helm: she is a science officer. Long afterwards, she becomes a first officer: a position Kira Nerys never holds. She is directly assigned as DS9 space station commander sometimes around the end of Dominion War. But she serves no starship at all during the war; concentrating herself helping her home nation Bajoran.

There is one TNG episode where LaForge consults a woman who designs the Enterprise-D warp drive. B'Elanna Torres is also a chief engineer. Her temper is what rules her out of my list. But technically speaking she's one hell of an engineer.

Female villain? You forget the Borg Queen?

Pffft, mostly out of context.

Worf lost 75% of the fights he's ever been in on screen.

There's even a trope named after him (The Worf Effect) that consists of having your supposed badass being beaten by the creature of the week to show it's really strong.
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: Dan on February 23, 2013, 04:36:37 am
Worf did lose many fights, true, but at the same time, you made a point for me.  The creatures were always extraordinarily strong, and Worf usually being the strongest available to test it against, he was the only one usually able to fight them without dying or receiving serious injuries.

Given how often he was beaten by his own crew I wouldn't say he was the strongest one. And when everything you meat is stronger than you, you can't be qualified as strong. In TNG, Worf being a badass is merely an informed ability (we're told but never showed).

I admit he gets better in DS9.
Title: Re: Star Trek: Pick your Crew
Post by: Dan on February 23, 2013, 04:52:40 am
A lot of the times he was "beaten" it was often because he was holding back and reluctant to fight them, for one reason or another.

If he could have prevailed but didn't, he showed terrible judgement then. You can't protect your crew when beaten nearly to death. And it's not a good situation to find you yourself in anyway.

I'm not saying he was the do-all end-all of badassery.  But claiming that he was a complete wimp and a horrible security officer is an argument doomed to failure, given that in the end, he still did just as good of a job protecting his crew and ship as anyone else.

I'd say they were kept safe (relatively speaking) despite his incompetence. As to who'd be better... what about pretty much anyone able to beat him on a weekly basis?

That is true.  But, the first time we saw Pike he was all mopey and depressed.  The second and last time we saw him he was in neck down chair with the beepey blinky light thing.  Although if NBC had given Pike and the original crew of the first pilot episode a chance I think I would have really liked them.  Though I do like Spock better in Where No Man Has Gone Before than in The Cage.
