    Well, that’s a toughie. Kirk of course was the very DEFINITION of awesome. Uhura was the first woman that I ever saw on TV that I wouldn’t mind being when I grew up. But… Spock. It was always Spock. I really connected with his “I don’t really fit in with any of these people but I do my best” plight when I was a kid. (Hell, I still do.)

  2. NOMAD the demented space probot!
    When I saw that episode for the first time (in syndication) I was only 4 or 5 yars old and it had a great effect on me.
    I felt sorry for NOMAD who was only looking for ot’s creator- and as a little kid I saw it as looking for it’s mommy and daddy.
    It made me sad. :(
    And when Nomad was tricked by Kirk into a logic subroutine loop overload and they beamed him out into cold space to explode all alone- it made me even sadder.
    As soon as the show ended I immediately drew a picture of Nomad from memory, taping several sheets of paper together, so that I had what i assumed was a lifesize crayon rendition of the little, misunderstood space probe.
    I ? NOMAD

    I would have to say Spock. Analytical, logical, and yet from time to time he is inandated with emotion but uses his logic to supress his human side to maintain his more logical Vulcan side of himself. If only we all could be more like him maybe our species and civilization would strive to be more than what we are now.

    I think the answer to this question changes every day, or at least every time I’m asked. Today is definitely a Montgomery Scott sort of day, though.

    As a kid and now as the guy who keeps the wheels on in a large facility, it would be Scotty. But, maybe just because Evil Spock only made one appearance.

    What? I already *made* a tape!
    Actually, I just opened my closet door and all my winter sweaters dropped on me – as I recreated the classic Kirk-awash-in-Tribbles moment which still tickles my inner Trekkie (I’m an outer Trekker).

    But I had to step in and mention my favorite *memorable* character not in the cast – crewman Kevin Riley.
    He who crooned “I’ll Take You Home Kathleen” as the ship dove into oblivion; he who hath historically-motivated hatred for a Shakespearian actor in one of TOS’s most intriguing ‘ship shows’.
    The life-on-a-starship aspects of the show were brought to life in these moments.
    Made me appreciate even more the journey my friends in space were taking, boldly going where I would one day wish to be.

    And yeah, I’d probably be the one with some drunken space-sickness, warbling incessant nostalgic tunes until they put me in the brig.
