Star Trek: TNG characters make the best cat names out of all the star trek series

It's also the best series. I don't know if there's any correlation between cat name suitability and quality of show, but with a few exceptions Star Trek: Enterprise and Voyager characters make for pretty bad cat names.

worf is also awesome cat name.

"Data" actually is pretty marginal for a cat name, but full-rank "Lt. Cmdr Data" is unbeatable.

search results for "named my cat tasha yar" disappointing.

My cousin had a cat named Data, I thought it was a cute name.

Whedonverse pet names > Star Trek though
Battlestar Galactica would make for great pet names

have named cats Buffy & Spike and my parents' corgi is River Tam, the last is shockingly appropriate

Tasha Yar is a badass name for a cat! doesn't require the rank in front.
Names that do require full rank/position for best effect:

Cmdr Riker
Counselor Troi (you could just go Deana Troi on this one, but Counselor Troi sounds more therapeutic and is a great name for an aloof, lazy cat who doesn't give a shit about your problems -- also a great/inappropriate name for a cat: Imzadi)
Doctor Crusher
Admiral Nechayev

Disagree with Whedonverse -- all the major/title characters are pretty lousily named. you have to go to the periphery to get good cat names in whedonville

I'd name a cat Number One rather than Riker

if it was a dog you could train him to go out and pee when you say "make it so"

good call on 'number one'
Lt. Barclay would also be a better name for a dog, I realized

Majel would be a nice name for a cat.

in keeping with Voyager is an inferior series -- seven of nine is bad name for a cat. (unless you had like nine cats)

Commander Janeway is a great name, exception that proves the Voyager rule

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 14 May 2012 20:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

Oh I don't know.

The Doctor
Cmdr. Tom Paris (and when the cat misbehaves, you can bust him down to ensign)
B'Elanna
Chikatay
Tuvix

Kes would be a terrible cat name, however.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 14 May 2012 20:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

The cat would think you were hissing at it every time you called its name.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Monday, 14 May 2012 20:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

disagree -- tuvok and neelix (and tuvix) are the only good cat names on that show. janeway only works if your cat has a ridiculous haircut. chkotay will also commit your cat to getting a tribal face tattoo

Philip Nunez, Monday, 14 May 2012 21:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

janeway also works if your cat has a croaky voice and drinks black coffee

Or if she's inconsistent in her adherence to the prime directive.

i'll grant you CAThryn Janeway is preferable to Jonathan Archer

I knew a guy who had Enterprise models in his room, AND had a tabby named Spot, but didn't name it after Data's cat! Astonishing!

btw, Dr. Pulcatski would be a good name, for a skunk.

oh duh re: locatus of borg

no way. you had it right the first time. locutus is the best cat name ever, because of cutus!
