TrekMovie’s Picks for the top 14 Star Trek Moms
(Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
Like a mythological goddess, Gracie the humpback whale repopulates her entire species and saves humanity from their own shortsightedness.
#13 Helena Rozhenko
Moms can love any child and Worf’s mom, Helena Rozhenko shows the love of adoptive parents.
(ENT: "Home" "Awakening")
A woman of conviction, T’les was willing, despite their conflicts, to give up her career for her daughter T’Pol.
#11 Lwaxana Troi
While she has some annoying traits, it cannot be said that Lwaxana Troi didn’t love her daughter Deanna.
Against the backdrop of galactic politics, K’Ehleyr was able to Worf’s son Alexander on her own until tragedy forced her to bring them together.
#9 USS Enterprise NCC 1701 D
(TNG: "Galaxy’s Child")
Not only is the Enterprise D symbolically a home (isn’t that what moms make, a house?), the D once acted as a mother to the alien space whale ‘Junior.’
#8 Carol Marcus
(Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
What can be said of Kirk’s son David’s mother, except: Can she cook, or can’t she?
#7 Kasidy Yates
Sometimes a child gets to choose his mother and Kasidy Yates was the step-mom that was able to heal Jake (and Ben) and help make them a family again.
#6 Kathryn Janeway
Not all mothers are biological mothers. Janeway always showed the motherly trait of compassion for her crew, especially with Tom, Harry and most especially, Seven.
#5 Borg Queen
(ST: First Contact + various Voyager episodes)
Although no friend of humanity, wasn’t the Borg Queen just a mom to trillions, who would do anything to improve the lives of her collective family?
Quark and Rom’s ‘Moogie’ raised two sons, imbuing them with a mix of traditional values and progressive ideas for them to both become successful Ferengi.
#3 The Horta
(TOS: "Devil in the Dark")
The mother Horta literally and figuratively exudes the protectiveness of mothers.
#2 Beverly Crusher
The only main character who is shown being a mother, Beverly is a single parent who helps her son Wesley achieve his dreams.
#1 Amanda Grayson
(TOS: "Journey to Babel" + STIV + ST09)
Spock’s human mother Amanda epitomizes unconditional love and helps her son strike the balance between his two sides, in both the prime timeline and the new alternative timeline.
BONUS Mom: Leonard Nimoy’s Real Mom
Spock’s fictional mother made the top of our list, but today Leonard Nimoy tweeted a photo of his real mom, noting "The lady is my Mom. She was curious. The man walking on is Dad. Los Angeles, 1970’s."
