Today is Mother’s Day. Many fans have their Moms to thank for either introducing them to Star Trek or supporting them when no one else would. TrekMovie.com would like to thank all the moms who help make the world a better place each day by presenting this list of Star Trek’s Greatest Moms. Each character was selected because she represents an archetypal quality we appreciate in the very best of 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.
9 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.
#7 Lwaxana Troi
While she has some annoying traits, it cannot be said that Lwaxana Troi didn’t love her daughter Deanna.
#6 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?
#5 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.
#4 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.
#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)
Spock’s human mother Amanda epitomizes unconditional love and helps her son strike the balance between his two sides.
Honorable Mention: The 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 was actually a mother to the alien space whale ‘Junior.’
