The Top 20 Hottest Star Trek Villains Of All Time

Star Trek is often thought of as being a science fiction franchise about brainy people who generally get along and find themselves involved in complex morality plays, and yeah, it is. However, Star Trek is also full of dark, mysterious, physically commanding and sexy bad guys (and girls).

Between the evil “mirror universe” ¬†versions of the ship’s heroes, and bombastic bad guys like Ricardo Montalban’s Khan and Benedict Cumberbatch’s John Harrison, Star Trek has a long list of compelling villains to find yourself sympathizing (a little too much) with. Not to mention the fact that patently sexy people such as Kim Cattrall, Tom Hardy and Iman have also shown up to threaten the Enterprise on the big screen.

I mean, sure, it’s a little weird to find yourself sexually attracted to a Klingon or an Android off his rocker, but Star Trek has always been about exploration. And who hasn’t been a wee bit intrigued by Gorn?

And while we’re on the subject of villains…who are Benedict Cumberbatch’s and Zachary Quinto’s favorite Star Trek foes????

Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness, is no stranger to villainy, as he played Sylar on Heroes. But who’s his favorite Star Trek villain?

Sure, Benedict Cumberbatch’s John Harrison tops our list, but who tops his?
