Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

Sorry, Archer is passable in, 'Enterprise,' but nothing special, it's the original series, 'Quantum Leap,' I detest.

That would be my order as well!

You're all wrong! It's Captain Pike, of course!

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

My sister will probably have my head for saying this, but Picard is the best. Plus, he's the one I grew up watching who seemed less of a womaniser than Corset Boy.

Then I would pick Janeway, then Sisko, then Corset Boy, then the captain I've yet to see, Archer.

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

You've not seen Archer? (Not very enterprising of you.)


I also voted for Picard, by the way.

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

Picard is wiser than Kirk. Well, it's what I'd look for in a Captain anyway.

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

Sisko I picked.

DS9 was actually pretty good. I think it's probably my favourite of the series, though I'm just a casual viewer and not a hardcore trekkie or anything. It had more real characters that developed over the course of the seasons (Garak and Odo being good examples). Sisko seemed like the kind of guy you could have a friendly drink with but would be utterly professional in his role as captain.

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

By the way, where the h*ll did Scotty get that accent ?

He sounds about as scottish as Mao Tse Tung.

I know hands-down Picard was the better choice for captain - he didn't go traipsing around the galaxy willy-nilly, ignoring the Prime Directive like a certain Kirk I voted Picard.

I just love the kitch value of the original series... and perhaps a certain vulcan

Exactly! Why anyone would want him (or as a captain either) is beyond me! It should have been Pike as the original captain anyway - he wus robbed, I tells ya

Really? I always thought you didn't like Picard's era.

When I was a kid, I loved his accent.

But yes, I was, and still am, daft.

Picard, because I love the episodes with Q, and the dynamics between them.

Picard was also extremely uhm, interesting.

Re: Best "Star Trek" captain?

Oddly enough, BBC2 is currently showing the STNG episode where Capt. Scott is rescued from the pattern buffers of an old crashed ship.

I picked Sisko, too, for pretty much the same reasons. Picard would be a very close second, though.
