You beat me to posting this, except I would have said
2. Black red shirt guy
And
3. Attorney Melvin Belli

As a runner up I'd also say Spock's brain.

At least not until his emotion-chip.

Same is true for his countless human-like observations and motivations.

But I agree about Vulcans - I find them rather dull and one-sided.

That's why I'm so fond of Spock, because he's only half-Vulcan - and I find his conflicted nature dramatically appealing - and a much more plausible mirror of the challenges of the human condition.

Gul Dukat was a great villain except for the end bit.
I liked Cracked magazine's take on TNG, "I am Dudu. I am an android. I am stiff and lifeless. The rest of the cast has no excuse." I thought it was appropos.

For my part, I think Data was a great character because:

1. Brent's acting.
2. The episodes revolving around him.

To me, it always seemed Data was played like an innocent child rather than an android without emotion, which is what he was established as.

They utterly failed to justify his desire and quest to be human. At least to me.

I've seen 95% of TNG about 15-20 times, by the way

Oh that's easy. A wizard did it. i.e. Dr Soong made him that way - particularly because he was incomplete without his emotion chip; although his positronic brain was built with emotions in mind which is why he could take issue with Dr Polaski calling him Data instead of Dayta or long for his affection to the late Lt. Yar.

I just started re-watching the series on DVD. Been a looooong time.

P.S. Isn't @crpgnut's #1 pick a bannable offence!?

P.P.S. I don't think it was Mudd on the Tribbles (a.k.a. furry wurry!?) episode. Mudd was in the one with the "beautiful" women and then the androids. The trader in the Tribbles episode did seem a lot like him, though.

I think the guy involved with the tribbles was Cyrano Jones. He struck me as more of a petty criminal than Mudd was.
