Again with the cop-out "I don't have one."

A few years ago I would have said Pulaski from TNG. Not because she was abrasive or anything like that, that aspect of her was actually quite refreshing, but because of her attitude towards Data (they were probably going for a McCoy vs Spock thing, which was never going to work because Data is the diametric opposite of Spock). Now, I didn't mind her attitude toward Data per se either, because it probably helped him grow and examine himself and learn to stand up for himself better (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he's noticeably less down on himself in season 3 than in season 1 -- I'm pretty sure season 3!Data wouldn't have said it was all his fault the Enterprise got hijacked because he was *gasp* painting on his shore leave rather than manning his post 24/7, as he did in 11001001) but back then I was under the impression that Pulaski herself didn't develop in her views, since I hadn't seen enough of season 2 due to it being super-boring. Later I realized she did develop towards the end, and that retroactively made her likeable even earlier in the season. So nowadays I like Pulaski a lot.

So...yeah, I don't have any regular characters I dislike. I quite like the much-maligned characters like Wesley, Troi, Neelix, Ezri Dax, because when other fans start talking about how awful a character is, all it does is throw their good points and likeable traits into sharp relief for me and make me like them more, even if I didn't care much for them before. However, [personal profile] selenak  listed some of the minor one-shot characters that were particularly crummy, so just to not be wishy-washy again, I'll pick Nero from Star Trek XI. So boring I can't remember a single line he said. I remember he was bald and had tattoos, which should make him automatically interesting because he wasn't wearing an '80s powersuit with Over 9000-level shoulder pads, but I still can't remember a single line he said.
