The problem with lists like these is that I remember too many of the villains.
Charlie Jane Anders:
Star Trek has never really been about its villains. Even the Klingons, Romulans and Borg have provided object lessons about understanding. Kirk had foils more than he had villains. So it’s no surprise that when Trek tries to do baddies, it frequently stumbles.
Spoiler Alert! My Top 3:
- Space Hippies (Star Trek Classic, ‘The Way To Eden”)
- The Ferengi (Star Trek TNG; seriously weak)
- Janice Lester (Star Trek Classic, ‘The Turnabout Intruder’)
Captain Kirk as an effeminate woman was hilarious, though.
