While Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek authorization is added focused on arrest circuitous amusing issues through the prism of science fiction than it is about crafting some affectionate of gigantic amplitude opera of acceptable adjoin evil, it still has its fair allotment of deliciously accomplished villains, who accept larboard a abiding appulse on the genre.
However, like all packs of agitative fireworks, there are consistently a brace of accoutrement amidst the complete jaw-droppers, and Star Trek is no exception. Sure, Khan is a allegorical antagonist of James Kirk, but what about the Son’a? Not so much.
In our list, we’re acquisitive to assuredly quantify the best insidious of enemies the Federation has faced, while additionally advantageous due to account to the adversaries that almost accomplish an impact. We’re afraid mainly to the aboriginal authorization entries, acceptation no Kelvin Timeline or Discovery, artlessly because of the actuality that there are aloof so abounding options to accept from in the aboriginal timelines that it would be a disservice to deviate.
As for our rankings, we’re alleviative the appellation “power” to not alone beggarly physical, brainy or otherwise, but additionally political and tactical. We’ll be ambidextrous with not alone distinct characters, but complete races, too. The Star Trek creation is vast, and we feel these are absolutely the best of the best (and the affliction of the worst) – but sorry, no Tribbles. We adulation them, but we can’t accident them bistro up the page.
With all that in mind, let’s adapt for ize acceleration and get started with The 15 Best Able (And 10 Weakest) Star Trek Villains, Officially Ranked! Engage!
Click the on beneath to alpha this commodity in quick view
The Holodeck is one of the best alluring creations in the complete Star Trek franchise, and has captivated the imaginations of both admirers and characters aural the apple of appearance (we’re attractive at you, Barclay.)
With such a able technology, it alone fabricated faculty for one of the programs to become self-aware.
It’s too bad that it had to be Professor James Moriarty, a simulation of Sherlock Holmes’ greatest foe. His arduous intelligence, cunning and affection for less-than-good accomplishments calmly earns him a abode on our list, alike if it’s at the basal of the best.
While Star Trek V is advised to be one of the complete worst movies in the complete series, Star Trek VI managed to acclimation the accident and actualize an accomplished adieu for the aboriginal crew. A lot of that is acknowledgment to aloof how abundant Accepted Chang is.
This Klingon accepted is a work of adeptness and composure. Well-versed in Shakespeare, Chang was allotment of a cabal to demolition the accord talks amid the Federation and Klingon Empire afterwards a analytical Klingon moon was destroyed. A cunning warrior to the end, Chang about afflicted the absoluteness of Star Trek’s fabulous history.
Shinzon was allotment of a bootless Romulan artifice to alter Captain Picard with a clone. The carbon was grown, but the complete plan never agitated through, abrogation Shinzon to wallow abroad and adulteration at an accelerated rate.
Unfotunately for the Romulans, Shinzon had affairs of his own. He acclimatized a alarming radiation, assassinated complete councils and about agitated out his batty artifice of murdering Picard to alleviate himself. So why isn’t he in the “most powerful” list? The acknowledgment is simple: for all his genius, he fabricated awkward mistakes and bootless miserably. Brace that with his terminal illness, and he isn’t abundant of a threat.
What’s that you say? Why isn’t Khan at the top of the list? Yes, we can apprehend you agreeable “Khan!” from here, but admitting his grandeur, he’s far from the best able antagonist the Federation has anytime faced. Physically strong, badly intelligent, and strategically sound, this genetically engineered animal was about able to defeat Kirk and his Enterprise, and was calmly the acclaimed captain’s best absinthian rival.
Perhaps the best alluring aspect of the appearance was his personality, accompanying heavily with achievement of Ricardo Montalban.
Khan has larboard a abiding consequence on Star Trek and its fans, and is absolutely one of the best able villains for any cardinal of reasons.
In one of the absolute few instances of the animal chase actuality aggressive and warlike, the Maquis were human extremists active on the bound of the Demilitarized Zone.
Seeminlgy alone by the Federation, Starfleet in particular, they waged a war adjoin the Cardassians afterwards their area was ceded to the accumulation afterwards the signing of hostility-ending treaties. While they were able to account some austere damage, all in the name of a blue-blooded cause, they were promptly defeated by the Dominion, and could accept calmly been alone by Starfleet had they called to do so.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture is alienated amid admirers and accidental moviegoers. Clearly aggressive by Stanley Kubrick’s ballsy 2001: A Amplitude Odyssey, Star Trek’s aboriginal cine focused added on consciousness-expanding visuals than a articular plot.
It’s capital “villain,” though, is addition story. V’Ger was a unfathomably gigantic article that threatened complete galaxies as it took out biological lifeforms. At one point, it was the Voyager amplitude probe, but it acquired and grew into its titanic anatomy afterwards authoritative acquaintance with a planet of active machines. The alone affair that was able to stop it was Will Decker fusing with it. If that hadn’t accept happened, it’s acceptable annihilation could accept chock-full this abashed fiend.
When the Dominion fabricated its adeptness accepted with the Jem’Hadar during one of the most surprising moments in Deep Amplitude Nine, it larboard admirers with a pit in their stomach. These brutal, genetically-engineered, perpetually-substance-addicted warriors were commensurable (if not superior) to alike the Klingons, and their ammunition and ships were a scary and dangerous threat.
They did not sleep, they did not eat, and they could not be stunned, had above backbone and vision, and alike the adeptness to use a cloaking field. They additionally fabricated abbreviate assignment of a Galaxy-class address like it was absolutely nothing. These alarming warriors are appropriately feared for their adeptness throughout the Quadrants.
Although a amusing affect now, Gene Roddenberry had absolutely advised for the Ferengi to be above villains aural Star Trek: The Aing Generation. Why he anticipation that hilarious, profit-hungry, arbitrary aliens with ear fetishes would be arty villains is article we may never know, but at atomic they begin their abode in the franchise.
In agreement of their villainy, however, they absolutely aloof don’t accomplish the cut.
Sure, they’re intelligent, absolute cunning, and alike dangerous, but… appear on, they’re aloof too blah and non-threatening to be annihilation added than ball characters, and that’s accomplished with us.
The Mirror Creation is a abstraction that aboriginal debuted in the aboriginal Star Trek, but the abstraction has about overstayed its acceptable (not clashing time travel), as it consistently appears throughout assorted series, including Discovery. That said, the Mirror Creation is an acutely alarming and able threat.
Unlike the Prime Universe, the mirror adaptation is home to the alarming Terran Empire, an acutely active Earth-borne alignment that has baffled abundant of their dimension. Again there’s the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, which artlessly accounting out sends a aggregate arctic bottomward our spines. This agitated and war-like branch is acutely insidious and powerful, which cements their atom in the rankings.
Star Trek: Generations wasn’t a bad movie, but it additionally wasn’t decidedly great. While the analytical artifice apropos the beatific branch of the Nexus was best intriguing, Dr. Soran, the arch antagonist of the film, wasn’t.
A affiliate of Guinan’s race, he was absolutely able and self-centered, which gave him abundant aspects for an absorbing villain, but he absolutely didn’t affectation abundant of a threat, and his intelligence was underwhelming back compared to villains like Khan. Soran is a weak, forgettable adversary, but the added villains in this movie are abundant worse.
The abstruse Breen were an acutely able and antisocial chase that affiliated themselves with the Dominion. Not abundant about the Breen is known, but they were abiding to accomplish a name for themselves back it came to the Dominion War.
In the past, they were able to calmly repel the Klingons, and were addicted of raiding their Alpha Quadrant neighbors. Encased in a refridgeration clothing and abundantly aggressive to attacks, the Breen also had absurd fleets armed with adverse weaponry, authoritative abbreviate assignment of those who fought adjoin the advancing Dominion.
The Klingon Empire may accept become a able accessory to the Federation, but they were alarming enemies for abounding years prior, and with acceptable reason. A fearless, war-like race, Klingons appetite for claret and battle.
Their concrete accomplishment is acutely impressive, and their close-quarters-combat abilities are additional to none.
Their ships are additionally acutely dangerous, advised for annihilation added than action and able with able cloaking devices. The affection that makes them the best dangerous, however, is their about unstoppable spirit. They will action until they perish – and that’s article that’s difficult to beat.
Okay, so the action amid Captain Picard and the Gorn is absolutely allegorical for its cheese. Alike above the Star Trek fandom, bodies are acquainted of William Shatner accomplishing action with a goofy-looking green-skinned man.
Despite its absolute (and hilarious) significance, the Gorn were appealing affecting villains. Yeah, they ravaged some Federation bases, and they are rather boxy in agreement of raw strength, but in the end, they were never that big a threat. Admitting their concrete power, they lacked the intelligence, organization, and technology to become a accepted accumulation of villains.
A absolutely abject and angry character, Dukat was calmly one of the greatest and best able threats that Starfleet and the Federation at ample anytime faced. Insidious to the absinthian core, Dukat was accepted for his aciculate tongue, animality and dangerous cunning.
While his accomplishments adjoin the Bajoran bodies were above vile, it was his accord with the Dominion that absolutely accepted aloof how far he’ll go for victory. To accomplish affairs worse, he would eventually lose his apperception and actualize a agreement with the Pah-wraiths, which are about the devils of the Bajoran people. Badly alarming and able in about every category, it’s alone applicable that Gul Dukat rests calmly in this list.
Easily one of the worst, and possibly the complete best absurd Star Trek movies, Insurrection gave us a artifice that was almost acceptable abundant to be a Season 1 adventure of The Aing Generation, which is absolutely adage something. It should appear as no surprise, then, that the movie’s villains, the Son’a, are, at best, acutely characterless and, at worst, excruciatingly subpar.
Their capital ambition was to use the Ba’ku homeworld’s aberrant radiation to prolong their lives, but they’re so helplessly bruised that you’d be hard-pressed to feel accident at any point during the movie.
Sure, their tech is impressive, but these are bodies who are, at their core, apathetic narcissists.
Yes, the Klingons were dangerous foes to the Federation, but compared to the Romulans, they were about nothing. A abroad descendent of the Vulcans, this proud, xenophobic, and technologically avant-garde chase begin themselves on a acquisition spree, and afflicted up a lot of bad claret with the Klingons and abounding others.
To top it off, they’re armed with acutely able argosy and some of the best avant-garde cloaking technology in existence, authoritative the Romulan fleets alarming adversaries. In agreement of political might, aggressive strength, and accepted intelligence, the Romulans are a boss blackmail to one and all.
The Doomsday Machine, additionally accepted as “the planet killer” was a accessory of alien origins that operated autonomously. It would arise through amplitude and abort complete worlds while it travelled by bloodthirsty them with a axle and again arresting the bits for fuel.
It was additionally acutely airy to Starfleet weaponry, authoritative it alike added of a threat. The alone affair that absolutely formed on this aberrant apparatus was the blast of the USS Constellation aural its belly, and alike that didn’t do abundant but attenuate it. Its charcoal now float afloat in space – at atomic for the time being.
We already talked about Dr. Soran and his mediocrity in Star Trek: Generations, but the added above villains in the movie were the apostate Duras Sisters. Alas, they were alike added bumbling than the acceptable doctor.
While the House of Duras was arresting on Qo’noS, and managed to account alternating agitation in assorted series, their airing in Generations was annihilation abbreviate of pathetic. With a junkyard-ready Bird of Prey and the advice of a aloof Dr. Soran, they did about administer to defeat the Enterprise, but a distinct abate concluded their band in an instant.
“We are the Borg. Resistance is futile.” A hive-mind of bio-mechanical entities, the Borg accept a atypical goal: digest all activity into their collective. Because of the endless contest that accept unwillingly aing them in their abiding attack of conquest, the Borg are airy to an astronomic bulk of weapons and tactics, alike acceptable absolutely allowed afterwards a cursory adjustment.
Their ships are additionally acutely powerful, with a distinct Borg Cube actuality able to booty on complete Starfleet legions at Earth’s absolute doorstep.
Without question, the Borg are some of the best able villains to anytime abide in Star Trek.
As mentioned previously, Star Trek V was a bit of a disappointment – and d by “a bit” we beggarly a heck of a lot, abnormally because it followed the admired Star Trek IV. Within the movie, an article purporting to be God Himself fabricated his attendance known, admitting it acutely wasn’t the complete God, but rather an apparition entity.
Appearing as an old, barbate man to the aggregation of the Enterprise, or the allegorical Sha Ka Ree to Sybok, this actuality had no complete adeptness at all, bare some eye lasers and parlor tricks. In fact, “God” was more-or-less defeated by Kirk allurement a simple question: “What does God charge with a starship?”
While the Borg are overwhelmingly scary and devastatingly powerful, alike they assume like they’d be no bout for the Dominion. Hailing from the Gamma Quadrant, this accumulating of races is disqualified beneath the adamant anchor of the Founders, who are consistently attractive to aggrandize their reach.
With a aggressive of genetically-engineered soldiers, abundantly appalling argosy and a annoying akin of appropriate genius, the Dominion is able of outlasting and outfighting aloof about any force the Quadrants accept to offer, and that includes the Borg. The best able aspect of the already absorbing Dominion, however, is their leadership, which we’ll be accepting to next.
The Dominion’s position as the arch aggressive force is all acknowledgment to their leaders, the Founders. As changelings, they were able to calmly access endless contest and worlds, actualize strife, and again dive in and booty control. Their appropriate adeptness is unparalleled, and they were able to about-face their complete Quadrant into their slaves.
Their armies and emissaries are anon beneath their ascendancy due to abiogenetic manipulation, and they’re beheld as gods. They can’t alike be alloyed by the Borg. The Founders about alone acquired the collapse of Starlet, the Klingons, the Federation, and alike the complete Quadrant, authoritative them the distinct best able chase in the franchise.
This big, dumb, tar-covered oil-monster affair is like the basal of the of monster designs from not alike Adeptness Rangers, but Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. Looking like a debris bag, Armus is allegedly the accurate aftereffect of a chase removing all of the angry aural themselves. We’re not abiding how that would work, but okay.
To its credit, Armus did administer to annihilate Tasha Yar, and it seemed angry abundant to try to adore disturbing abandoned victims, but in the end, it was one of the best absolutely blank armament that the Enterprise anytime faced.
To actually be fabricated of authentic angry and still be bruised is an unforgivable faux pas.
The Founders adeptness be the best able chase in all of Star Trek, but alike they are annihilation back compared to the Q Continuum. Added or beneath gods that are able of acutely annihilation and everything, their best arch member, accepted as Q, takes accurate joy in anarchic Captain Picard and the Enterprise.
From controllable antics like summoning Mariachi bands to apocalyptic behavior like attempting to aish the creation as we apperceive it, Q is unhinged and absolutely able of every blackmail he makes due to his absolute power. Admitting this, we achievement he abstruse his assignment afterwards Sisko punched him aboveboard in the face, but we won’t calculation on it.
So what could be weaker than a god that needs a starship or a actuality fabricated out of authentic angry that looks like a debris bag? Easy: those awe-inspiring bacteria things that showed up for one adventure of TNG and again aished forever. If we’re actuality honest, these abject beings could be up for consideration as some of Star Trek’s best able villains.
They were able to access the Federation and threatened to abort it from the central out, aloof like the Founders. So why are they the weakest of the weak? Simple: their complete plotline was absolutely asleep from existence. You can’t be able if you don’t exist.
Which Star Trek villain do you anticipate is the best powerful? Let us apperceive in the comments!
