SF and Fantasy's 20 Most Irritating Characters 4

4 Keiko O’Brien
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Role: Whinging botanist wife of long-suffering Chief O’Brien.

The painful truth: Keiko’s main function on DS9 was to moan. And whine. And whinge. And complain. And tut. And frown. And flounce. And gripe. And look uncomfortable acting with small children. Keiko once determined that the video showing her husband being killed had been falsified because she sees him drinking coffee, and he never drinks coffee in the morning. Apparently. Gosh, what an interesting life she must lead. It’s always a relief when she gets taken over by aliens. Her motto may well have been, “Not tonight dear, I’ve got to give everybody else headaches.”
