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?

  1. wow. Only the new Kirk could ever possibly hope to attain the level of “great captainness” that Picard had all along. Jury’s still out on that one, since we have to see what Paramount puts out in the way of new Star Trek movies.

    If we’d like to choose Shatner’s best role, I vote for Denny Crane. He was amazingly fun to watch, as well as being, you know, like a “real person”. Scary?
