The borg queen from First Contact was pretty hardcore.

I've only seen a small handful of films but the Borg Queen is my favorite.

A pretty huge dropoff after Kahn, but I'll go with Kruge and Chang.

"I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will."

Having seen her multiple times on Voyager dilutes the villainy of the Borg Queen and, therefore, as a choice for me.

Easily, the Borg Queen. Best ST movie by a mile.

Wow. Crap on someone else's opinion without giving your own. That takes guts nothing.

Almost half the votes have been for the Borg queen, so I don't think he's alone for that vote.

I don't think it's the best ST movie, but he's certainly not alone, it's easily one of the better ones.

Care to elaborate without just crapping on someone (and the thread)? Opinion?

I'd probably go with Kruge as my favorite villan, with the Borg queen close. I didn't think of Chang and Khan so much as villans even though they were the enemy at the time. (Both excellent character roles)

Chang was a better villan than Khan. I never looked at Khan as a villan as much as a fighter. Chang was a villan.

I loved his use of shakespear.

Chang, easily. "You have not experienced Shakespeare until you've heard it in the original Klingon."

Both Wrath of Kahn and First Contact get 91% at rottentomatoes.com, so no...he's FAR from alone in that opinion.

And try to get your grammar correct when thread crapping, for crying out loud.

As for my choice, I'd have to pick those damn dirty whales from Star Trek IV. There was something sinister about them.
