Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

Interesting list. But Scotty at 19? No way. I'd certainly place him before Archer and Janeway.

I guess the fact that archer and janeway being captains sorts of strengthens their case for high ranking which is to be expected.

The surprising ones are Crusher the doctor being higher than bashir the doctor, who appeared to have done more, visited more worlds,and other storyline dominion stuff.
Or Kira being higher than TPol who was an aide and guide and provided a lot of info to archer.

When I first saw Enterprise I wasn't at all impressed with T'Pol. However, with the passage of time, I think she's an underrated character who was actually more nuanced than I had first thought. I also believe Jolene Blalock's performance of the character was far better than I gave her credit at the time.

As I mentioned in another thread, I am fresh off watching Enterprise from start to finish ( around 3 episodes per night sometimes 4) and its a far better show than its given credit for.
I enjoyed it more than my last binge watch of voyager.

I do believe Geordi, and Wesley from TNG and Kitchen Rat Neelix are without doubt the worst main cast members ever.
The only saving grace for the awful deanna troi was she was good looking, but as characters, they were fuckin atrocious.
