Kinda self-explanatory in the title there... If its been done before... Oops

It's hard to pick out just one ... I've broken it down into the sexes my lady at the moment would have to be Olivia Dunham from Fringe (awesome)

My main man would need to be Rick Grimes from the Walking Dead (which is also my fave show) this tv show is just nailbiting from start to finish!

Dr Who, hands down. I probably enjoy that show more than Star Trek.

Not going to pick a favourite incarnation of the Doctor becasue each actor's added their own little twist to the role. Best companion has to be Ace though (Sylvester McCoy era)

Won't put into words why, the following video is enough :)

Mine would be Stargate Atlantis with the very wonderful Dr Rodney McKay as my fave character. :thumbup:

Favourite female character is still Jessica Alba as Max in Dark Angel, just loved that series.

I also love Fringe, though not for Agent Dunham - lol. I've always liked Joshua Jackson since Dawson's Creek so it's a bonus he's in it. ;)

It amazes me when people say they like Ace the most, I think I hated her even more than I hate Rose and that's saying something!!! The era when Dr Who truelly went down the toilet with a whimper IMO.

I'd much rather have a female companion who was proactive and useful in a tight spot, than one who did nothing but scream and whinge and whine about everything. In other words Peri. Having Ace running around blowing stuff up and generally making herself useful is a breath of fresh air after two years of Peri. :)

I would say Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones for shows.

For characters that's super hard to narrow down. For females - Six from BSG maybe. Males... probably Peter Dinklage really does an incredible job on Game of Thrones. Edward James Olmos is amazing too.

I'm not a big fan of Dr. Who - I tried watching it but didn't develop an appreciation for it.

I've never seen Dr. Who, but everyone tells me I should watch it.

My favorite non-Star Trek character: Alfred Bester from Babylon 5.

Favorite non-Star Trek shows: Babylon 5, Nu Battlestar Galactica, and HBO's Rome

Second vote for Alfred Bester / Babylon 5. NuBSG, Babylon 5, Farscape and SGU are my favorite sci-fi shows.

Can't choose just one, so here's the ones that tie for favorite:

Favorite Horror Show: The Walking Dead

Favorite Sci-Fi Show: Babylon 5/Farscape/SG-1

Favorite non-Star Trek Characters: Alfred Bester (Walter Keonig) from B5 and Scorpius (Wayne Pygram) from Farscape.

Why Walking Dead? I'm no lover of the Horror Genre, too predictable in my mind, but this, while it's not a jump to scare you type of scary, it still is scary.

Babylon 5: Come on now. It's B5! It helped kick-start the story-arc shows in US TV.

Farscape: That's a hilarious show! Even funnier than Stargate SG-1 in many ways.

SG-1: It lasted 10 years. It's hilarious, and has great character developments.

As for Bester and Scorpius: They don't see themselves as the bad guys, and while they aren't actually there physically in many episodes (Bester only got like what, 9 or 15 episodes?) they have such a presence that they seem to be everywhere.

Damn thats a tough one.

Favorite non Trek show? Still talking about Sci-Fi right? I'll go with Stargate SG1

Favorite character? Probably Dr Daniel Jackson from SG1 or Rhade from Gene Roddenberrys Andromeda

but i do watch a lot of Sci Fi and its tough picking out your favorite show and characters, i think my favorite non Sci Fi show is Criminal Minds.

Another favorite scifi character of mine; Vincent Freeman of "Gattaca" (1997)

That was also one of the BEST and most thoughtful scifi movies of the past 20 years. Like Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" meets "Black Like Me."

Probably the ONLY movie of Ethan Hawke's where I didn't instantly dislike his character (OK, "Daybreakers" was kind of cool, too....).

Favorite non-Trek shows: Babylon 5, Game of Thrones, and NCIS

Favorite characters

Babylon 5 - That's a really tough one, because they're all so very well-written, but I'd have to go with Delenn.

Game of Thrones - I'd say it's a toss up between Arya Stark, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen.

NCIS - Abby!! ^_^

Babylon 5 and Londo Mollari.

Not only is he one of the best sci-fi characters ever, he is (IMO) one of the best characters in all of TV fiction.

His journey (from comic to tragic) is unsurpassed; he changes, he grows, he makes mistakes and he suffers the consequences. Fantastic in every way.
