Greetings --

This is my first day here (November 16, 2001) at this forum and this is my first post!

On a Sports-BaseBall Forum (, they have a free-for-all section where any topic can be discussed. A fan put up this thread "Pick your All-Time Star Trek Dream Crew"

The fan suggested these categories --
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1st officer
Chief of Security
Additional regular character(s) who doesn't fit the above!

Recurring good character(s) (guy/gal)
Recurring bad character(s) (guy/gal)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Folks weren't specificly asked to keep choices confined to the above, but most did when they responded. You can deviate a little bit if you like.

Thanx-A-Lot, Enjoy and God Bless Vespucci-Land, Frank-0-Sport

Brace Yourselves -- these are my choices and I do a LOT of deviation !!!!
DISCLAIMER: I have not really watched the ENTERPRISE series AT ALL, so no characters from it are represented here!

Ship: The Run-A-Bouts -- There should be two in every garage; Beats Metro Rush Hour in any millenium!

Captain: Tie - Picard-Sisko-Janeway

First Officer: Tie - Cmdr Elizabeth Shelby (Best of Both Worlds, part 2); DS9's Kira Nerys;
Majel Barrett's "Number One" in the pilot "The Cage" -- aka - "The Menagerie"

Doctor: All The Ones I've Seen (McCoy, Crusher, Polaski, Bashir, HoloGram Man)

Navigator: Ambassador Kolos, "No Truth in Beauty". Anyone who can find their way out of a void is #1 in my book.

Helmsman: Hikaru Sulu.
Honorable Mention: Lt. Monroe in Next Gen's "Disaster". Before she died, she aligned the ship to prevent catastrophic damage.

Nurse: Kes (Voyager). She heals with thought power! Try topping that!

Communications: Uhura! She's got the pipes, baby! -- AND STILL DOES!

Computer: The Slaver Weapon (1973 animated series). "When I am off, I have no sense of passing tyyimmmme!"
Now THAT is Pure Machine Logic at its best!

Tactical: Tasha Yar in "Yesterday's Enterprise"

Security: Tie - Worf; Odo

Engineering: Tie -- Scotty; Geordi; O'Brien

Counselor: TIE - Deanna Troi (better curves); Guinan (better hours)

The Bar: That poor, hapless bartender in "The Trouble with Tribbles". (surprise!)

Ship's Would-be Detective: Lt. Cmdr Data. Elementary, my dear Trekkites.

Ship's Cat: The Tiger from the TOS episode "Shore Leave" (apologies to Data's pet cat Spot).

Ship's Funniest Laugher: Lt. Cmdr Data in TNG's "Deja Q"
DISCLAIMER (in voice of F. Murray Abraham): That was not Data laughing. It was Q laughing at Picard thru that hideous, obscene giggle.

Model Rocket Builder who breathed new life into Hobby and Toy Stores everywhere: Zefram Cochrane, of course!!!

A Certain Character's Quote - One of many things we Trek Fans wish we could know the resolution of:   "Oh God, What I'd Love To Show You" -- Beverly Crusher to Jean-Luc Picard in the TNG Year One episode "The Naked Now".

Best & most important episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise", which created several never really seized upon possibilities.

Best recurring good person: Gene Roddenberry, the Heart and Soul.

Worst recurring bad person Entities who did not realize certain paths and directions that Trek (especially TNG) could venture off to!

Thanx-A-Lot, Enjoy and God Bless Vespucci-Land, Frank-0-Sport

Excellent choices Grason. Ed Jelico was brilliant, if a bit of a bastard.

Ship USS Prometheus

Captain: Picard, can't change him as I think he's great.

1st Officer: Chakotay, again thought he was great.

Science Officer: Data, you know it makes sense.

Engineer: Chief O'brien, to be sure, he's agrand ol' Irish fella.

Helmsman: Tom Paris, he can fly, no doubt about that.

Doctor: McCoy. no one else comes close, though I would like the EMH to come in now and then.

Chief of Security: Worf, Hard as nails.

Additional characters: Good old Ensign Yates would make a comeback and I'd have Harry Kim somewhere as well.

Recurring good guy: Q, as I don't think he's a bad guy anymore.

Recurring good gal: 7 of 9, she looks to damn good to leave out.

Recurring bad guy: Weyoun, I know the Domian war is over, he's just such a cool bad ass.

recurring bad gal: Evil Romulan Yar.

Ship: Has to be the Prometheus. That ship kicked about 348 different varieties of ass.

Captain: Hmm.. this is a hard one. I am going to have to go with Benjamin Sisko. He was straight up and in your face. I liked that.

1st officer: Chakotay. He would balance Sisko's volatile nature with his own calmn temperament

Engineer: Geordi La Forge.

Helmsman: Data, easily.

Communications Officer: I don't know if it's her first or last name, but Hoshi from Enterprise. I have a thing for Asians.

Doctor: The Holographic Doctor. Leonard McCoy is a close second.

Chief of Security: Pavel Chekov. If I am not mistaken, his character was a Security Chief for a while in the movies. I do not care for Worf and Tuvok is just a bland character to me.

Additional regular character(s): Jadzia Dax. Make her the head of sciences or something.

Recurring bad character(s) (guy/gal) The Romulans. The best Star Trek alien race, hands down. The Q would be a nice addition as well.

Hrm... this was a tough one...

Ship: On pure looks- the Gorn vessel. Anyone ever see that thing? I first saw a pic. of it in an olllld Star Trek board game. It looked mean as Hell. If we're going for the total package, though- the Prometheus. That thing has the capability to be a Dreadnought of some kind. Like crossing the Bismark and the Yamato. Pure Hellfire. That's what I'd call it. USS Hellfire. Honorable mention to the Gunship with Guts: the Defiant.

Captain: Picard. I mean... the man did more than Kirk ever dreamed of. The Borg, Q, Cardassian torture, Romulan half-breeds from an alternate universe, has his own damn Maneuver... He is the perfect Starship Captain.

1st Officer: If you've got Picard, ya gotta have Riker- but only AFTER he grew his beard. He was such a dink before that. Happened with Sisko, too. Anyway... Riker is the perfect Number One, but only with Picard. They're a double act. It's a switcheroo of the first Captain/#1, with the gungho charisma taking a side seat to the cooler intellect.

Engineer: I like O'Brien alot. He's smart, quick thinking, and I think he'd be fun to drink with. But c'mon... who's better than Scotty. That man IS the miracle worker. And ya know what- probably just as fun to drink with. "Well it's uh... it's green."

Helmsman: Data. Honorable mention to Paris and all, but... I'd rather have Data on my ship anyday.

Doctor: This was a tough call. Julian Bashere is engineered to be brilliant. But I gotta go with Crusher. The fact that she's a hot red head doesn't hurt, either. Honorable mention to The Doctor of Voyager. Their scene together in First Contact kicked ass... had me rollin.'

Science Officer: Spock... who else? Also, I'd LOVE to sit in on a Riker, Spock, Scotty, Data poker match. Oh, the possibilities...

Security Chief: The double act of Worf and Odo. Worked on DS9, it'd work on a ship.

Communications: I'm with Aesiron on this... Hoshi all the way. I can't imagine how many IQ points it takes to do her job. Plus she's hot... what can I say?

Bartender: Quark. He was funny, and 9 times out of 10, a pretty stand up guy. Takes guts to fight a Klingon when you're only 5'4" or so, no matter what kind of help you're gettin. Plus... It's always good to have a good hook up around, nudge-nudge, wink-wink, ya know-ya know?

Reoccuring Bad Guys: Again, a shout to the Gorn. What happened with them? They got that one episode and poof! they're gone? What's up with that? Are they the Kesier Sosez of races or something? WTF?

Reoccuring Good Guys: Guinan, since I din't have her at the Bar. I'd love to see Guinan walking into a bar run by Quark... oh man... Are you listening, Screenwriters?

For what it's worth.....

Well, here would be my choices for an all-star dream crew:

SHIP: Romulan Empire's SCIMITAR Class, newest and most powerful super battleship designed by the Remans, I'd name it after my ship in the Starfleet Command 3 PC game- The FALCHION.

CAPTAIN: No doubt about it, James Tiberius Kirk. The Captain to end all Captains. Mr. Star Trek himself! Extensive combat and diplomatic experience and a hit with the chicks!

FIRST OFFICER: THE Gary Mitchell character in WNMHGB episode- this was a tough choice between Spock and Mitchell but I ultimately chose Mitchell because he is better tactically than Spock, Spock would be my choice as head science officer but he would be senior to Mitchell in rank and therefore cannot be ordered around by him. (If Mitchell didn't die of course- but my alternate choice would be Riker for the same reasons as above).

**note** There was a reorganization of Starfleet since the time of TOS and TNG, helmsmen and navigators were hereby referred to as bridge command specialists; the consoles were designed so that either person at the front could function in case the other was unavailable. Communications and tactical were now handled by security specialists that sat behind the Captain (in a galaxy class starship). Away team members would normally not include the Captain as that would jeopardize the ship's command integrity.

Now, on to the rest of my list:

HELM 1: Sulu- though he was ultimately promoted to Captain of the Excelsior, he is still the best helmsman of the bunch.

HELM 2: Data- As long as he sits there, drives the ship and shut up like any good andriod will do, he is my choice for backup to Sulu.

SCIENCE OFFICER: Spock- The master of analysis would be a great complement and he would be permanently stationed on the bridge.

TACTICAL/COMM: Chekhov- Oh yeah, he is quite good and funny when it comes to dealing death with weapons and he is definitely my choice for that.

ENGINEER: Scotty- The best! no one comes even close to him!

DOCTOR: McCoy with the holographic Doctor on Voyager as an assistant. Now that would make one hell of a comedy team!

BARTENDER: Harry Mudd- The quintessential con-man! You have to bring him back! Trek is no fun without him!

RECURRING GOOD PERSON: Garak- The best character of the TNG timeline and master spy too! Call him the Tailor of Panama!

RECURRING BAD PERSON: Khan Noonian Singh- Quite simply the most complex and best villian Trek has to offer! He learns from his mistakes and would be stronger each time the crew faces him!

CHIEF OF SECURITY: This position would be for intruders on the ship as well as part of the away team will be filled by Odo. He can change shape and he is quite deadly.

AWAY TEAM: (Although Kirk would kill to be leading this team I would keep him at the bridge! no excuses.)

1) Spock
2) Data
3) Odo
4) Holographic Doctor

Starfleet is not a military organization, by this time there doesn't exest any human military organizations. Starfleet is an institution whose main mission is to explore, defence is a secondary mission, and it doesn't even think about conquoring anything.

Although Starfleet is based on a militaristic heirarchy, it is not a military organisation itself. This is a very common misconception.
