Let’s talk Star Trek. I’m asking the eternal question: Who was the best captain?
Also, what’s your criteria for judging the best captain?
A while back, Scott got into this very conversation with a woman. She claimed Kirk, he claimed Picard. She was all, “But Kirk is so much more fun to watch!” Scott countered that with his opinion that Picard was a better captain because he was more sensible, less hasty, more of a thinker and less of a let’s-go-make-sweet-alien-love-immediately kind of guy.
She looked at him strangely and said, “Um, so you’re talking about him as if he were a real person. Um, that’s scary.”
Is it any wonder we hate people?
