A Visual Ranking of Every Villain from Star Trek: The Original Series

The first episode of Star Trek was broadcast on September 8, 1966, making the futuristic universe of the Enterprise 50 years old today. There were 79 episodes of the original series, all featuring some character, entity, group, or concept that provided conflict. Not all of them were what we’d normally call villains, but they are all pictured and ranked at Uproxx. That means 77 "villains,"  because a couple appeared in more than one episode. Which is your favorite: Elaan of Troyius, Nomad, Harvey Mudd, Khan, Balok, the Doomsday Machine, or some other villain? Yeah, it’s the Tribbles. Gotta be the Tribbles.

1) Handheld (and voice activated) 2-way radios existed before Star Trek communicators. Dick Tracey comics had a radio watch back in 1946.

2) People had flat laptops before 1987. Omitting the keyboard for TV was nothing special. And see the 1972 Dynabook.

3) Companies were videoconferencing long before 1988. There were even videophones available to the public in the 1930s...

4) Several companies had prototype "optical head-mounted displays" in the mid-90s, including Sony and IBM, a few years before Star Trek featured an imaginary one.
