    Kirk, of course. Kirk could take a punch.

    Picard.

    Kirk is a good captain, but he sometimes acts on impulse, not reason. Picard is one of the best diplomats in Starfleet, probably the best. Picard looks at the bigger picture, and relies on Riker to do the rough stuff. Though he still knows how to kick a Klingon's ass.

    None of the other Star Trek captains come close to either. Janeway and Sisko are definitely good captains though. I never really had a reason to care about Archer, he's not a great captain.

    Kirk would not have stood a chance against the borg.

    Has to be Picard.

    lol. I know a lot of people out there are die hard kirk fans.

    I personally admire Jean-Luc Picard because, he is very calm cool and collected at all times... Even setting his own ship to self destruct seems like a minor issue to him.

    The fact that he is so calm and logical astounds me. Even when he makes mistakes, he accepts them with grace and learns from them.

    Plus Riker makes the perfect kirk-like contrast.. Riker is much younger and more passionate although perhaps not *as* potentially wild as Kirk ... He makes the perfect "student" if you will.

    I think that is what I like about Picard.. he takes a very mentor like role in the series.

    Dude(s) Picard is FRENCH. Aren't they the biggest Wussies we have here on this planet? Seriously, I know you all think he could be there in a pinch, but I am sure he would surrender at some point......:eek:
    Kirk would die trying, right or wrong.

    And don't Flame me, I am half French myself.

    lol.

    There is an exception to every rule :p

    And Kirk already showed the preference to destroy his own ship as oppose to surrender.

    Can you picture Kirk fighting the borg?

    Kirk: "How dare you board this ship?!"

    <Throws punch>

    Borg drone: <injects Kirk with nanites>

    Borg drone: "You have been assimilated. Resistance is futile"

    Kirk: "You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile."




    Picard may not get down and get his hands dirty in the fighting (he's got people for that), but he knows how to deal with a problem and lead a ship of people who's lives depend on him.

    Have you seen Riker lately? The only rough stuff he's going to be doing nowdays is murderlating a buffet.

    Riker is one mean machine. He'd tear a Nausicaan in half with his bare hands.

    LOL! I am just old school, I guess. When I think Captain of the Enterprise, Kirk is the first and only that pops into my mind. To me he is THE captain.


    This is a great thread....
