I am sure I am forgetting someone....but this would be my list.
I'd add Leila Kalomi above Troy. But you are also forgetting Rachel Nichols as Gaila from the reboot and Noa Tishby as Amanda Cole from ENT. Both above Troy and IMO above Jadzia. This list could get looonnnnggggg.
Uhura is hard to place, she got much more attention than the other females on the show, such as Yeoman Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney) and Yeoman Teresa Ross (Venita Wolf). But I'm a sucker for blondes so maybe that is my reasoning for the Yoeman....
T'Pol is my favorite character from all the series, just her development as an officer and coming to terms with her emotions was really good writing IMHO.
I'll also add for what it is worth. TNG was crap for IMO sex appeal. Sure they all wore jumpsuits. Tasha Yarr was the best looking and she was killed off early.
Otherwise I agree with your assessment.
I'd like to see a writer on a future Star Trek series write in a scene or weapon's dealer or rouge captain who carries a sword that works exactly like a light saber and claim it to be "An ancient weapon from when times were more civilized." Cause really, that is all SW has going for it. I thought I remembered reading someone say in one of the early episode of TNG there is a character who carries a weapon similar, but have never been able to find it. I could see the gap being bridged as several space quadrants have never been explored.
My favorite series was Enterprise too. then TNG, not sure what order I'd put DS9, OG, or Vo.
