Which 'Star Trek' Character Are You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Who hasn’t wondered where they fit into the ever-expanding Star Trek universe? What began in the 1960s as a cut-and-dried space western developed into one of the most beloved science fiction series of the 20th and 21st centuries. To find out where you’d fit into the myriad worlds of Star Trek try consulting your horoscope and seeing what your zodiac sign says about your disposition in the Alpha Quadrant.

With the vast array of Federation officers, alien races, and evil robots that populate the final frontier it’s impossible to pin down exactly which Star Trek character you are through astrology, but the following chart will help you get a handle on where you fit in the world of the Federation.

After discovering which Star Trek character you are, why not take a look and see how the stars place you a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.


  • Aries (March 21 - April 19): Commander Riker

    stubborn sign if ever there was one, Aries are a confident and determined lot with a penchant for being a little moody. They can jump into the fire without thinking through all of the options, but they don't necessarily see that as a bad thing. The more challenging a situation then the more exciting they find it to be. 

    Despite spending his best years playing second fiddle on the Enterprise D, Commander Riker is no spring chicken when it comes to taking the lead. After Captain Picard was taken over by the Borg, Riker spearheaded an effort to stop the hybrid cybernetic creatures at all costs, even if it meant killing his mentor.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Captain Janeway

    If you're in Starfleet then you'll want to serve under a Taurus. You can always count on them to pull through, and if they're your friend they'll be loyal to you forever. However, don't get on their bad side because that's where you'll spend the rest of your career once you do.

    When Captain Janeway finds herself all the way in the Delta quadrant with no way to return home she stays cool under pressure, even when she has to work with the Maquis to find a way back to Earth. She goes to bat for her crew constantly, especially her main man Tuvok, whom despite not technically being her number two, is definitely her best friend on the crew.

  • Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Garak

    You could drop a Gemini in a the middle of a space station full of hostile enemies and they would find a way to adapt. You can count on a Gemini to consistently be inconsistent. They'll be cagey and flaky one week, while being on time and emotionally open the next. You don't know exactly what you're going to get with this sign, but you know it's going to be exciting. 

    Garak is the Gemini to lead all Geminis. He seems to be a simple tailor, but he's also a spy. He's distinctly Cardassian except for that whole thing about working closely with the Federation. This is the one character in all of Star Trek who is impossible to figure out.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Michael Burnham

    If you need to get a little emotional look no further than a Cancer. These Water signs are guided purely by the the volatile nature of their mental states. In the best of times this makes them thoughtful and provides them with a way to look at things outside the box. At their worst, Cancers are easily intimidated and can get twisted up inside their own heads.  

    Despite being raised on Vulcan, Michael Burnham is one of the most emotional characters that Star Trek has ever seen. She tries to get through the obstacles that are placed before her with her wits alone, but she's usually swayed heavily by her emotions and this ends up getting her in trouble time and time again.

  • Leo (July 23 - August 22): Captain James T. Kirk

    Leos are big, bright balls of fire and everyone else is just existing in their orbit. Or at least that's how they act. They're only comfortable when they're the center of attention, which is usually all the time, and they really don't know how to sit out a conversation without throwing in their two cents. 

    Captain Kirk is the closest thing the Federation has to a cocksure, swaggering pirate. He enters ever situation with a smirk, and he doesn't believe in a no-win scenario. There's nothing in the known universe that can stop Kirk when he puts his mind to something, be it a genetically altered muscle bound freak, his own crew, or death itself.

  • Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Saru

    If you're looking for someone to labor endlessly over a thankless task then look no further than a Virgo. People who fall under this sign are perfectly happy to drudge through an assignment without so much as making a peep. However they can also spook easily and they tend to be caustic if you catch them at the wrong time. All in all, they make the perfect science officers.

    When the audience first meets Saru he's a scaredy-cat Kelpien who would rather run away from a fight than directly engage. As he grows throughout the first season of Discovery he learns how to use his fear as an advantage. Through his tireless efforts and unyielding work ethic (and a little help from Michael Burnham) he managed to lead his ship back from the mirror universe.
