This is the most difficult to choose. I grew up watching TNG and there isn't one character I don't like. I voted for Riker, simply because he was the first trek character I began to like- outspoken, determined, original, unorthodox, passionate and quite flawed. But aas I said, I liked the others equally.

The Next Generation is a tough one for me. I really like a lot of the characters to some degree. I even really started liking Beverly Crusher there towards the end when they really started to add some dimension to her character. But overall during the entire course of the show I really liked Deanna Troi.

Picard is my favorite from TNG. But as others have said this is a difficult choice, there are a lot of great characters here. Even among the minor characters there were some great ones -- for instance, the Duras Sisters were always fun!
Ugh! I agree with everyone, tough choice! So I opted for my all-time favourite: Beverly Crusher.
Compassionate by nature, Beverly's medical expertise earned her the seat of Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise; a lead role for a woman ill-at-ease with personal relationships and command situations. I liked that frailty in her, even though she never lacked determination. Throughout the series, we get to see her struggle to acquire the necessary leadership skills that her position demands, which is nice.
As mentioned by General Tanner, Doctor Crusher did not get nearly enough screen time and character development. She nailed episodes like ''Sub Rosa'', ''Remember Me'', ''The High Ground'' and ''Attached''.

Lt. Col Welkin, I didn't see Beverly, struggling to acquire leadership skills(I think Deanna was like that). I mean Beverly seemed to already have them. They replaced her after the first season(so she got less chances to develop as a character compared to the others. )As I heard, she got back in the show due to the fans' requests. But she did have some good episodes of her own, as mentioned above, but also some good moments in other episodes. "Sub Rosa" did not impress me at all. I prefered the episode when she fell in love with the Trill(that was much more convincing. Attached, on the othe hand, was among the best. "The High Ground" as well. And I really loved "Transfigurations".
The way I remember it, Beverly truly wasn't comfortable in the captain's chair the first times around and doubted her own decisions, the crew doubted them too. Was it in Descent Part 1 or 2? Can't recall clearly. Furthermore, when she's interacting with people, she often clenches her fists as well as other small signs of nervosity (shy smile, hesitant gestures).
