1 Answer 1


Spock: 9 times

  • Star Trek 2009 (Spock Prime)
  • TOS 'The Savage Curtain'
  • The Voyage Home (twice)
  • TAS 'Yesteryear'
  • Wrath of Khan
  • TOS 'Is There In Truth No Beauty?'
  • TOS 'Assignment: Earth'

and in a very close second place comes

Tuvok: 8 times

  • VOY 'Year of Hell'
  • VOY 'Resolutions'
  • VOY 'Homestead' (twice)
  • VOY 'Counterpoint'

    I think it's safe to say that Worf is not third. Feb 9, 2016 at 18:27
