YMMV / Star Trek: The Next Generation S3E22 "The Most Toys"

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Kivas Fajo is a Collector of the Strange with the attitude of a sociopathic brat, who uses his job as a trader to cover for his thievery of unique and valuable objects. After desiring to add Data, the only known sentient android in the galaxy to his collection, he poisons an inhabited planet's water supply so he can kidnap Data and cover it up as an accidental death while trading over the antidote. When Data is in his care, Fajo doesn't care about his sentience and degrades and humiliates him into catering to his whims, insistent that he's just another shiny object. When Data refuses to comply, Fajo eventually forces him to obey by threatening to kill his broken, co-dependent slave girlfriend Varria with a Varon-T Disruptor, which is illegal to carry in the Federation due to the agonizingly slow and torturous way it kills its targets from the inside out. When Varria helps Data escape, Fajo murders her with it and pins the blame on Data. He then threatens to continue killing more of his own servants if Data keeps refusing to obey him, and even dismisses Varria's death by stating that he can easily find a replacement, causing Data to pull a Zeroth Law Rebellion because he's concluded, unemotionally, that Fajo is just that dangerous. Among the series's one-shot villains, Kivas Fajo is without a doubt among the worst.

  • Foe Yay: Fajo and Data is a one-sided example. Fajo is obsessed with possessing Data, and comments that he'd prefer it if Data was naked.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Saul Rubinek as a villainous Collector of the Strange.
  • Ho Yay: Plenty between Data and Fajo, all of it one-sided on Fajo's part.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Fajo indisputably crosses it when he shoots and kills Varria with a Varon-T disruptor. Even Fajo himself seems momentarily shaken by that act—he immediately tosses the disruptor away after firing. Unfortunately, he soon recovers and threatens to use the horrific weapon again.
