    This forum doesn't exactly ask the tough questions, but I'm interested to know: who do you think is the best Andromeda character?

    *This character could be part of the main crew, or some alien whose one-time appearance made a real impression.

    From the main cast, it's definitely Dylan.

    From guest characters, it's a tie between Remiel and Hector who were both in "Day of Judgement, Day of Wrath" but that's probably because "Stargate SG-1" is my all-time favourite show.

    The best charecter was without a doubt Tier. He was tough and funny (in a tough guy way). Once he was off the show it was a lot worse.

    Thanks to all of you who have replied so far. I'm an all-out Harper fan myself. I've got a soft spot for cute little geniuses. Of course, if I had to choose a character to emulate, it would so be Trance. I know that isn't an answer to my question, but she's so cool.

    Of the main cast, it's in my opinion Tier. But I am a huge fan of James Masters. The Nitzean he was playing was hilarious (don't remember his name), and he brought som humor into the episode he was in.

    A lot of people like Tyr. I had no idea he was such a fan favorite; he was so mean and intimidating. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, but on ever other Andromeda fan site I've been to, if the fans aren't in love with Harper, they watch the show for Beka. Its cool to have found a different fan base. By the way, James Marsters played Charlemagne Bolivar... I looked it up online.

    mine would have to be Mr Seamus Harper. i see him as the comic relief chacter (you know so the series doesn't to borin') but then again i always choose the funny ones (guess thats just me though)

    In order:

    Wonderful characters:

    2.Harper
    3.Rhade
    4.Tyr

    Then, the rest of the character are still great, but just under the ones above:

    5.Becka
    6.Andromeda/Rommie
    7.Doyle

    Trance. She's sexy, cool and mysterious. I like Purple Trance more, but gold Trance rocks, too. Laura bertram is a great actress!

    I can't believe I forgot Dylan. He's tied with Harper.

    You know... that's extremely tough. I like Beka's put up or shut up attitude... but one of the reasons I watch the show is to see how Trance is going to save the day next. I really do wish they would have put something in that told you something about trance's real self -- background or SOMETHING...anything.
    For example, I wish they had explained that scene in season 1 where harper apparently says something to her in her own language, and she tries to nudge Dylan away from the subject.
    And of course, lets not kid ourselves.... Lexa Doig is just plain sexy.

    In order though, I have to give overall props in the following order:

    1. Trance (mysticality wins the day, not to mention good looks)
    2. Dylan (The Commonwealth pwns)
    3. Harper (Computer Engineering's my thing, so I can semi relate... genius = good)
    4. Beka (Put up or shut up time)
    5. Tyr

    I feel sad having to do that, since I really like them all. Also, in terms of guest characters... by far the win goes to Sam Profit/Uncle Sid, played by the AMAZING John de Lancie...
    who makes many appearances in Stargate I might add... and oh yeah, there's that Q guy... Q was the heart of TNG with his quirks and annoyances; John De Lancie is an amazing actor!

    The truth behind Trance is that she is the avatar of a sun. There are many suns, therefore many avatars, and they exist together as a population, so they have their own language. This is the language that Harper spoke to her in. Remember at the end of "Harper 2.0" when she turns away from Harper and reveals the tatoo of a sun? That was a clue to her identity. If you already know this, than feel free to reply with more questions. I will be glad to research.

    In seasons 1-4 it would be Harper, with Rommie/Andromeda a close second. In season 5, Rhade. I like my Rhade's drunk and angry.

    1. Trance
    2. Rommie
    3. Harper
    4. Beka
    5. Dylan
    6. Rev Bem
    7. Doyle
    8. Rhade
    9. Tyr

    In order.

    Tyr and Rhade are just so flat! I don't see any depth to their characters at all! They just fill a stereotype that always bugs me.
