  • 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.

  • Khan Noonien Singh on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#3) Khan Noonien Singh

    • Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek

    Who He Is: A genetically modified human who rises to prominence during the Eugenics Wars of the late 20th century to become the tyrannical ruler of more than a quarter of Earth's population. He and his followers flee persecution in a sleeper ship called the SS Botany Bay, which is how he is discovered and revived in the 23rd century.

    Why He's So Lucky: In terms of genetics, Khan wins the genetic lottery, but he would argue that he makes his own luck through pure strength of will, superior tactics, and a genius-level intelligence.

    Luckiest Moment: By all rights, Khan should have perished shortly after Kirk exiled him to Ceti Alpha V. A cataclysm on the next planet over, Ceti Alpha VI, wipes out most of the indigenous life on the planet, including Khan's wife. The surviving planet is knocked into a new orbit, turning it into a wasteland. While none of that is lucky, what follows certainly is.

    The events of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan only occur because Starfleet fails to do its homework. The organization completely overlooks the fact that an entire planet has blown up and been replaced by its neighbor. No sooner does the USS Reliant land on Ceti Alpha V than Khan and his people subdue the crew and seek revenge for their suffering. Khan's lucky that Chekov didn't remember where he'd seen the Botany Bay before - until it was too late to stop him from shoving a worm in his ear.

  • Seven of Nine on Random Luckiest Characters In The ‘Star Trek’ Franchis

    (#2) Seven of Nine

    • Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek

    Who She Is: Seven of Nine is just a young girl named Annika when she is assimilated by the Borg. She grows up as a member of the Collective, which makes it hard for her to acclimate with the crew of the Voyager. She is an incredibly intelligent engineer, and her knowledge of the Borg helps Captain Janeway in her ongoing conflict with the powerful aliens.

    Why She's So Lucky: Because Janeway takes a shine to the former Borg right away, Seven of Nine finds luck in her acceptance on the Voyager. This saves her life countless times.

    Luckiest Moment: In the original Voyager timeline, Seven of Nine perishes before the crew reaches Earth. Janeway, despite getting the Voyager home, can't forgive herself for failing to save Seven and defies orders to travel back in time. Through the aged admiral's interference, a new timeline is created in which Voyager ends up on Earth with most of its crew unharmed.

    It could be argued that Seven of Nine is one of the luckiest people in the universe, as Janeway's decision to defy Starfleet's temporal directives gives her a literal second chance at life.

  • 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.

  • 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.
