And Whom Would You Prefer?

Another poll has come and gone, and again you solidify my beliefs about you... for the most part. I asked:

Who is your favorite Star Trek villain?

And you answered:

Khan (Wrath of Khan) 33%
Nero (Star Trek) 0%
The Borg Queen (Star Trek: First Contact) 5%
Q (TNG) 27%
Commander Kruge (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock) 0%
Praetor Shinzon (Star Trek: Nemesis) 0%
The Tribbles (hee hee...) 11%
Someone else (these choices suck, Linus...) 22%


I agree that Khan is DA MAN, and I am pleased with Q being second in line; exactly as I would rate them. It also gives me giggles that the Tribbles got more votes than the Borg Queen - you guys crack me up. I'm a little saddened by the lack of love for Commander Kruge (come on - it was Christopher Lloyd! And he had a huge lizard/dog/thing for a pet!) but I did set up the poll for one answer per person, so I guess it's to be expected.

I am, however, surprised at the number of "Someone else" votes. Over a 5th of you thought someone was better than the group I put up above. I suppose I could have added Gul Dukat or General Chang, or even the gloriously gratuitously violent Jem'Hadar (aren't they hawt, what with all those head ridges and spikes and leather pants and stuff?) but seriously - are any of them BETTER than Khan? So you guys who chose "someone else" pony up. Tell us who your favorite Trek villain is in the comments, and why.

Old School for me - I voted Khan without a second thought...

I'll admit, I just thought of one who should have been on the list - Lore, Data's evil twin was a pretty cool bad guy. He had that whole doppelganger thing going on... if only he could have learned not to use contractions.

Apropos of very little, I've been thinking about names. What with the baddie in the new Trek movie being called Nero and a big deal being made about Kirk's middle name being Tiberius, I really think people need to start naming their kids some of those good old Roman names again. My purely hypothetical kids Trajan, Agrippa, and Drucilla would rule the schoolyard with iron fists. And they'd throw the best parties in high school and college.


In other news: I've been listening to Lily Allen's "Fuck You" repeatedly. I cannot stop. It's the cute little tune and tone of voice contrasting with the lyrics. It just makes me giggle. You know how people use songs played over and over again really loud as a kind of torture in warzones and places like Gitmo? Well, the next time Fred Phelps comes to town, you guys should totally play this song, Screeching Weasel's "I Wanna Be A Homosexual," Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time," and, I dunno, something by the Indigo Girls on a constant rotation at top volume until those ass goblins give up and go home.

As I suspected - those who chose the "someone else" option in this poll are silent. I imagine this indicates that those respondents were just enjoying the opportunity to be a jackass and skew the results. My bad; see if I ever put a cop-out answer on a poll again...
