We’re looking at the best couples in Star Trek history on Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day coming to an end, we figured we’d wrap up our Valentine’s Day-themed Star Trek posts by looking at the best couples in Star Trek history. There really were some good ones, even if Star Trek isn’t too known for its romance stories.
Like with the other two, this is in no particular order, but we do have some honorable mentions to get to first.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Benjamin Sisko and Cassidy Yates
This was a great romance, but it doesn’t make the list for a few reasons; one Cassidy was a smuggler with ties to the Maquis, and Benjamin had her arrested over it. No one in the top three can have arrested the other. That’s a big romantic no-no. Plus, without going too deep into spoilers, their ending isn’t a happy one.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Odo and Kira
Like with Sisko and Yates, Odo and Kira were torn over one another for almost the entirety of the series. They were together for about one full season across the last six episodes of season six and all but the finale in season seven when Odo returns to his planet.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Worf and Jadzia
This was a great pairing and was wonderful to see unfold during their three seasons together but like with others on this list, there was a definitive flaw. In their case, it was their ending.
Star Trek: Voyager – Tom Paris and B’Elanna Torres
Usually, it’s the guy that is afraid of commitment but Voyager flipped that on its head with B’Elanna Torres and Tom Paris. It was a great slow build that finally saw them become a great, fully fleshed-out couple. Unfortunately their great “couple-moments” came few and far between.
