My picks for best Captain...<br><br>
1. Jean-Luc Picard<br>
2. James T. Kirk<br>
3. Kathryn Janeway<br>
4. Jonathan Archer<br>
5. Benjamin Sisko<br><br>
To be honest Sisko always bothered me. He's just a grinning, over-acting goofball.<br><br>
What are your picks for best Captain?<br><br>

I will forever love Spock. I think he should have been Captain! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Well yes honey and I admit to a strange sexual attraction to Spock but we're talking lead characters here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Nice choices, MLP! I am also one of those few who like Kathryn Janeway but I put James T. Kirk ahead of her simply for nostaligia value.

What about the lesser-known captains? Like the women in charge when there's the alternate timeline and The Federation's at war with the Klingons. Trying for the life of me to remember her name.

Well this thread is to rank the best Captains among the five main series. We can get into the rest in a separate thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

When you think about it, Kirk was <i>constantly</i> going against the core values of Starfleet, especially the Prime Directive. He succeeded as an action hero but he sucked as a by-the-books military man.

Yeah, Kirk generally irritated me, because of his humongous ego, but his character was exactly what he needed to be in relation to the other characters, so he's difficult for me to place. (For instance, Spock would not have worked nearly as well with any other captain as a foil.)

Spock and Picard would have made the most boring team up ever.

Yep, and I also think it's important to put Kirk into context with his time (1960's).<br><br>
So how do the rest of you rank the five main Star Trek Captains?

Well, pah. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
As for the Spock/Kirk dynamic, it is special, but Spock/Janeway could've been an interesting pair.

Perhaps the original intent of my thread has now been lost, but....<br><br>
Each series had it's own captain/commander and I'd like to know how you would rank them?<br><br>
Jean-Luc Picard<br>
James T. Kirk<br>
Kathryn Janeway<br>
Jonathan Archer<br>
Benjamin Sisko

So this is what it feels like to totally lose control of a thread? Cool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Please remember that I was a good little poster and responded appropriately to your opening post. That should count in my favor when/if I turn my snarkiness on you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

First rule of command, D'Ger: the galaxy is unpredictable and hostile.<br><br>
My list:<br><br>
Picard<br>
Janeway<br>
Kirk<br>
Sisco<br>
Archer<br><br>
I put Archer last, only because I never saw that series.
