Sunday Seven #306

It may feel a bit strange to see that on the tenth anniversary of September 11th terror attacks, the Sunday Seven has nothing to do with that subject.

I’ll be posting some thoughts on the anniversary later today. In the meantime, I thought I’d keep this week’s question independent of that dark day.

Earlier this week, we saw different, much more pleasant anniversary: the 45th anniversary of the premiere of a science fiction program on NBC that had a modest beginning, but grew into a cultural phenomenon. I’m sure you know by now that I’m talking about Star Trek.

After several series devoted to the franchise, there are many, many characters to admire. Could you name your favorite seven? They could be from any of the Star Trek series. They can be Star Fleet heroes or any of the myriad villains.

But I do ask you to list the series from which they come, particularly if the character isn’t part of the “core” cast.

That’s the challenge for this week! As always, thanks for stopping by!

  1. I started this on Sunday evening, but as you can see, I really got into this post. I loved it, it was very enjoyable. It also beat watching the telly, which had nothing but the 9-11 tragedy. Having lived through it and seen it from New Jersey (and not on the telly until later) I never need to experience it again; this was a very welcome change.

    Here is my link, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it:

  2. Picard, Janeway, Data, Seven of Nine, Naomi Wildman, Que, Guinan- actually found this really hard to narrow down i basically love them all!
