  • Geordi La Forge on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#11) Geordi La Forge

    • Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Chains of Betrayal, Star Trek Nemesis, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek Generations, Star Trek

    Who He Is: Lieutenant Junior Grade Geordi La Forge advances quickly through the ranks of the Enterprise to become the chief engineer with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He is a brilliant engineer and one of the smartest people in all of Starfleet where warp mechanics are concerned.

    Why He's So Lucky: To be fair, Geordi isn't incredibly lucky. He's been subjected to heartbreak, deadly terrors, and horrific mishaps. Also, he's born completely blind. Ultimately, Geordi's luck stems from his ability to overcome all the hardships of his life to become a significant member of Starfleet.

    Luckiest Moment: When he is 5, Geordi receives a VISOR, which makes it possible to see the world around him, albeit not in the same way as most people. This event changes his life and helps set him on the path that would lead to his life of success and well-deserved respect.

  • Tom Paris on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#5) Tom Paris

    • Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek

    Who He Is: Tom Paris grows up under the umbrella of the Federation, as his father, Admiral Paris is a prominent member of the organization. He is a flight officer and helmsman with excellent skills, but he often finds himself getting into trouble with the law.

    Why He's So Lucky: Believe it or not, Tom is lucky because he ends up on Voyager. Sure, he has to make a 70,000-light-year trip to get from one end of the galaxy to the other, but his road to redemption comes from that journey where he earns the respect and admiration of his crew.

    Luckiest Moment: After reaching an unprecedented Warp 10 in the Cochrane, Paris rapidly mutates into a hideous amphibian, abducts Captain Janeway, and speeds off to a jungle planet. He could have spent the rest of his unnatural life as a frog monster in a swamp, but the Voyager crew tracks him down and administers some anti-proton treatment to bring him back to normal. Luckily, this incident is never mentioned again.

  • Reginald Barclay on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#8) Reginald Barclay

    • Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek

    Who He Is: Lieutenant Reginald Barclay lands a position on board the USS Enterprise-D, but due to his nervousness and lack of confidence, he stammers often and ends up causing a lot of problems for the rest of the crew. Despite this, he continues in his career to eventually help in the creation of the Emergency Medical Hologram at Jupiter Station.

    Barclay later helps bridge the unfathomable gap of communications between the USS Voyager and the rest of Starfleet when the former winds up on the wrong side of the galaxy.

    Why He's So Lucky: Despite being a bumbling fool half the time, Reg becomes a trusted member of the crew. Lt. Cdr. La Forge cuts him a lot more slack than most would in his position, and this results in his continued advancement in Starfleet.

    Luckiest Moment: Barclay's Starfleet career includes such incredible highs and abysmal lows that picking one moment is difficult. It could be that time he contracts "Barclay's Protomorphosis Syndrome," which Dr. Crusher names after him, but doesn't mutate into an alien spider. It could also be when Captain Picard chooses not to transfer him off the ship for spending all his free time - and work time - in the holodeck. Or perhaps it's the fact that he is able to achieve any success in Starfleet despite his crippling phobia of transporters.

  • Benjamin Sisko on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#12) Benjamin Sisko

    • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek

    Who He Is: Benjamin Sisko comes to DS9 a Commander but is eventually promoted to the rank of Captain. He works as the administrative head of the station - where he lives with his son, Jake - in order to bring Bajor into the Federation.

    Why He's So Lucky: It is eventually revealed that Sisko is "fated" to lead DS9 due to the intervention of the aliens that live in the wormhole near Bajor. These wormhole aliens, or Prophets, possessed Sisko's mother to ensure that she gave birth to him. Living in a non-linear time space, the aliens know that Sisko's life will ultimately lead him to DS9 to become their Emissary.

    As the Emissary, Sisko is considered a holy man in the eyes of many people on Bajor. This helps him maintain a tenuous peace between the Bajorans, the Federation, and Cardassia.

    Luckiest Moment: When the nigh-omnipotent Q attempts to wreak havoc on the space station, a riled Sisko punches him in the face - which is about the same as punching God in the face. Perhaps due to divine intervention, Sisko receives no reprisal.

  • Montgomery Scott on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#1) Montgomery Scott

    • Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek

    Who He Is: Montgomery Scott is the chief engineer on both the USS Enterprise and then the Enterprise-A under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. He builds a reputation for being something of a miracle worker, which is partly based on his ability to accomplish tasks in half the time he says is possible - but also by always quoting twice as much time as he needs. He is eventually promoted to Captain, but disappears from the historical record later in life.

    Why He's So Lucky: Scotty makes his own luck in most situations, as he is quick to make friends with people, and is relied upon by the entire crew.

    Luckiest Moment: While on his way to retire at the Norpin colony, Scotty's ship collides with the outer shell of a Dyson sphere. Unable to take off or summon help, he and his fellow engineer, Matt Franklin, have little choice other than locking their transporter patterns in the system's buffer - where they remain for 75 years.

    His luckiest moment comes when he is freed from the transporter by the crew of the Enterprise-D. Sadly, Franklin's pattern is too degraded to be recovered, and he is lost forever.

  • Wesley Crusher on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#6) Wesley Crusher

    • Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek Nemesis, Star Trek

    Who He Is: The son of Dr. Beverly Crusher, Wesley grows up on the USS Enterprise-D. He quickly demonstrates his academic brilliance, and is given a position as an acting Ensign to help his education and give him experience working on a starship.

    Why He's So Lucky: Wesley is a genius, and his ability to quickly and easily solve problems makes him a vital member of the Enterprise's crew, despite being just a child.

    More importantly, despite Captain Picard's general coldness toward children, the fact that Wesley's father perished under his command - and that he still harbors feelings towards Wesley's mother - makes him more lenient with Wesley. This basically gives Wesley a front seat to the most exciting discoveries of the 24th century.

    Luckiest Moment: Wesley impresses a visiting alien who is ostensibly working on a warp drive upgrade, but is actually trying to use the ship's technology for his own purposes. The alien, referred to as The Traveler, sees something in Wesley, and years later returns to take Wesley from the United Federation of Planets and on to unimaginable adventures.
