TL;DR Top Ten Lists: Silliest Star Trek: TNG Adversaries!

Musketeer Riker

In our experiences, top ten lists normally have two flaws: they're poorly formatted for quick reading and they are normally wrong. Just check all the comments of any top ten list, and you'll see lots of other folks think the list is wrong, too.

With our TL;DR Top Ten Lists, we're going to fix both problems... with your help. We're just gonna give you a couple of things on our top ten list (to make it faster to read), and you fill out the rest in the comments below (to make sure the list is accurate). Add to the list, argue with us, argue with each other, but most importantly be nice and have fun.

Today's TL;DR Top Ten List topic is:

Silliest Star Trek: The Next Generation Adversaries!

The children from the ST:TNG Episode
  1. Musketeer Riker ("Hollow Pursuits") -- In planning this list, we were originally just going to do villains. But then we decided to expand it to anyone who stands in the way of the good crew of the Enterprise D doing their thang. Musketeer Riker just barely stands in the way. He's late to the fight, he's shorter than regular Riker (we'll call that one "original recipe"), and he's just a bit goofy. For all of that, we call Musketeer Riker a silly adversary.
  2. Children ("Disaster") -- Picard was just doing his duty and taking the three young winners of a science fair on a short tour of the ship. We're guessing that tour was of safe and fun areas, like the arboretum and aquatics lab. And then Picard would send them on their way and go back to work. But could he quickly and easily do that? No, because he was thwarted by silly, little children (oh sure, and a quantum filament collision, but we're blaming the children).
  3. Horga'hn statue ("Captain's Holiday") -- Again, Picard is foiled by something seemingly innocent. This time, it's a statue he acquires per Riker's request. We're pretty sure Riker already had one and just wanted the Captain to get a little something extra on his vacation. But sometimes you want to participate in jamaharon, and other times you just want to read a good book! Foiled by a silly (sexy) statue.
  4. Kivas Fajo ("The Most Toys") -- Fajo is a collector. He likes to have all the best things and show them off to his friends. He steals his things and puts them on display. He even is bold enough to steal Data. And here's why Kivas Fajo is a silly adversary. Sure he's capable of killing (RIP Varria), but he makes one error. This episode is called, "The Most Toys," which means, as a toy, Data isn't worth as much since he's not mint in packaging.

And now it's your turn. What do you think numbers 5-10 are? Do you agree with our numbers 1-4?

Take to the comments and help us find the Silliest Star Trek: The Next Generation Adversaries!
