Here we go again, complicating things. We were so close to a total Riker victory. My vote, in case you didn't figure it out, goes to Riker. I think the important takeaway from this debate is that there's just a lot more going on with Riker by the end of his series than there was with Spock. Some people liked that, some people didn't, but it was hard to argue that Riker wasn't the most developed first officer. He changed, he fell in love, he grew a pretty awesome beard.
