POLL: Best Star Trek Crew Member

December 26, 2021

Thanks for your interest in this topic! The poll is now closed, but you can check out the episode of the podcast in which we discuss the results by clicking here.

For Season 5, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast is boldly going where it has never gone before: into the world of Star Trek! This sci-fi franchise has given us dozens of iconic characters over its 60-year career. And now the Great Pop Culture Debate wants to decide: who is the best Star Trek crew member ever? And we want YOUR opinions!

Below find a list of every major crew member from every Star Trek property, from the original series up through Prodigy, listed in chronological order. (You can also take the poll by clicking here.) Pick up to 32 of your favorites. Note that we stuck just to main cast, but if there’s a secondary crew member you think should be included, by all means include them in the write-in field below. We are focused strictly on crew members for this episode, but if there’s another area of Trek lore you think we should debate in the future, please share it with us at greatpopculturedebate@gmail.com.

The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in an episode of Season 5 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in March 2022. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.

Miles Edward O’Brien is the greatest Star Trek character of all time, and Shax will never die.
