Better say Enkidu and Gilgamesh. It's more native.

I'd pick the same seeing as how one has a crazy raping, bleed-to-the-bone vampire controlling the whole franchise and the other... hasn't.

Gilgamesh was not a part of their history, it was Picard trying to tell a story to Dathon about a time of history on Earth. And Dathon laughed and said "Gilgamesh?" and a few sentences later Dathon snuffed it, dead.

Here is the transcript..

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Gilgamesh, a king. Gilgamesh, a king. At Uruk. He tormented his subjects. He made them angry. They cried out aloud, "Send us a companion for our king! Spare us from his madness!" Enkidu, a wild man... from the forest, entered the city. They fought in the temple. They fought in the streets. Gilgamesh defeated Enkidu. They became great friends. Gilgamesh and Enkidu at Uruk.

Captain Dathon: [faintly] At Uruk.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The... the new friends went out into the desert together, where the Great Bull of Heaven was killing men by the hundreds. Enkidu caught the Bull by the tail. Gilgamesh struck him with his sword.

Captain Dathon: [laughing] Gilgamesh.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: They were... victorious. But... Enkidu fell to the ground, struck down by the gods. And Gilgamesh... wept bitter tears, saying, "He who was my companion, through adventure and hardship, is gone forever."

[Captain Dathon dies]

Yeah, but that also means you got trapped.

GOTCHA!
