Dear Bratty Friends,
A friend sent me this link to a Guest Post by Coty Chanley called, "The 5 Hottest Beefcakes in Star Trek." I said, I hate to be contrary, but those are definitely NOT the hottest Star Trek characters ever in my book. Sure, everybody has their favorite characters, sure, everybody has their own tastes as to what they find hot or not, but geez, George Takei is gay people!
Not that there's anything wrong with that... :)
So, my friend said, why not put up your own list? Somewhere in the back of my mind, I think I've probably done one already, probably about a hundred times. But hey, once more around the block works for me! You never know -- you might just get lucky...
My top 5 Star Trek hotties are:
#5 Spock, TOS
Let's just put out there what every thinking girl knows - smart guys are sexy. Yes, men that can think their way out of a box are hot! It doesn't matter that he has pointed ears or green skin. What does matter is that smoldering undercurrent of repressed sexuality that every girl would like to sample. More than once, if you please. So here he is... Spock:
|From All Our Yesterdays, TOS|
|See how he's so much cooler than the blond?|
#4 Dr. Phlox, Star Trek Enterprise
What you say? Dr. Phlox? The guy with the insane toenails? Well, yeah, he does need to trim them, I'll be the first to say. But check this out: he's not shy about sex, he's into multiple partners and he's got a nice bedside manner! Better than mine, probably. Heh.
He's also damn cute in real life: I give you John Billingsley
I"m not 100% sure what it is about slightly rat-faced guys that seems so appealing. All I know is that I always seem to notice them. Is it the long nose? The sharp edges? Or that they always seem to have this slightly lost or sad look about them....? Come on, you gotta admit he's hotter than Trip! He might be shorter, but that's not a problem. Cute and sexy all wrapped up in a different package is still cute and sexy!
#2 Kira Nerys, DS9
The last two on my list are both from DS9, and both are hot in their own way. Now, I have a friend that would argue that Kira is no way as hot as Seven of Nine, but I beg to differ. You gotta love the attitude, and big blondes just don't do it for me.
What's that you say? I don't swing that way? Well, the bough that doesn't bend breaks, you know. Besides, look at that nose! But I'll bet she's a little heartbreaker from the word go!
|Sorry Cathy, we must have different tastes in women!|
Yep, I have a bad Cardassian crush, and who the hell doesn't? It's not as though you can fail to notice them sauntering around in their tights with their jet-black hair. It makes you want to go up and have a beer with them - the darker the better. And these bad boys are dark, which is part of their mystique, as you know.
I think it's Jeffrey Combs's voice that attracts the ladies, but it might also be the blue skin. Or perhaps it's just curiosity over what those antennae can actually do .... But the more I think about it, he kind of stands on his own. Ladies and gents - I give you the blue boy himself: Shran!
|Shran looking ... um... happy|
And that ends my spur of the moment, long overdue - or perhaps too oft overdone - list of five (plus a few more) sexiest Star Trek characters. You might laugh, you might not agree, but hey, at least some of them are blue!
