For this Halloween, we’re looking at three of the scariest Star Trek: The Next Generation villains.
With it being the Halloween season, we’re looking at the scariest villain Star Trek has ever offered series by series. We’ve already done Voyager and The Next Generation and now we’re moving on to arguably the most popular Trek show ever, The Next Generation.
Star Trek: The Next Generation has featured many scary moments, and we’re not talking about the first two seasons of the show. We’re talking about some of the more horrifying creations that Trek has ever created.
Now, we’re not looking at alien races, otherwise, the Borg would be on the list three times. We’re looking at the individuals that struck fear into us. Now, these are just three, not the only three. Fear is subjective and not everyone is going to have the same reaction to a pick as others.
These are our three but we’d love to hear your three in the comment section.
Three of the scariest villains from Star Trek: The Next Generation to look at this Halloween
The Borg can represent many things, personally, they’re space zombies to me. But what are zombies if not a flock of people with a singular purpose and no room for personal growth? That’s why Locutus is so horrifying. He’s the physical embodiment of a good man, a moral man, falling victim to the group-think of a mob.
Yeah, a lot of what makes these things scary is the psychological implications of what these characters represent. For Dexter Remmick, the main alien parasite in the episode “Conspiracy”, it’s really just the whole getting melted by a phaser and an alien slug exploding out of his abdomen thing.
Armus doesn’t look scary, nor is his whole “physical embodiment of malevolence” really all that terrifying. Yet, what makes Armus so scary is the fact that he can actually kill off a main character. His arrival in Star Trek meant the end for Tasha Yar, an end most fans didn’t see coming.
