• So I’ve recently reconnected with my Trekkie side and haven been enjoying re-watching the old movies and catching up on all The Next Generation episodes I never saw. So I wanted to ask and see how was everyone’s favorite?

    Mine, surprisingly enough, is Captain Sulu, from Star Trek VI the undiscovered country. I always loved how he raced his ship into the fray to help the Enterprise in the final battle.

    Sulu was a bad-ass.

    But Picard was the ultimate.

    100 reasons why Kirk was better than Picard.

    http://www.comedycorner.org/12.html

    My personal favs are:

    91. Diplomacy for Kirk is a phaser and a smirk.
    71. When Picard was 37, he was only Captain of the lowly freighter, Stargazer. When Kirk was 37, he was Captain of the flagship Enterprise.
    46. Picard’s middle name isn’t tough or awe-inspiring like Tiberius is.
    42 Picard hasn’t fathered any children; Kirk – probably millions.
    37. Kirk once made a cannon out of bamboo, sulphur, potassium nitrate, charcoal and then fired diamonds into the hearts of his enemies. (Need we say more?)
    31. One Word: Fisticuffs.
    30. Kirk’s name is hated throughout the galaxy.
    22. The Klingons didn’t have a word for surrender – until they met Kirk.
    18. Picard allows cats on board, while Kirk beams away even really cute things, like Tribbles.
    6. Three Words: Flying Leg Kick
    4. Kirk traveled through The Great Barrier, met God, and wasn’t even impressed.
    3. Kirk’s bedroom is a passion pit with electric sheets.

    Thanks for your top reasons, Malachi.
    I always liked kirk without knowing those details(or having forgotten) them.
    No changing my mind now!

    No doubt that Kirk was the Trek Guru!

  • Man you guys are nerds.

    Kirk all the way.

    Ok watch Balance of Terror and consider Mark Lenard’s performance. He is the Romulan commander.

  • '17 '16 '15 '12

    Benjamin Sisko, without doubt 🙂

    Although I like the cited reasons for Kirk.

  • '18 '17 '16 '11 Moderator

    Blech, Sisko?  He couldnt run a space station, let alone a starship!

    I’d have to say Kirk followed by Ryker (series finale with the 3 nacell warship) and then Janeway with the armored shuttle from hell cause, wow, she took out the BORG.

    Ha, without Seven of Nine Captain Mickey Mouse would not even get near a Borg Sphere. Sisko, on the other hand, won the Dominion War.

    Worf won the dominion war. 😛  Sisko was along for the ride!

    And Ryker flew that sovereign class battleship like a pro!

  • '17 '16 '15 '12

    Good point, Commander 🙂

    Besides, Romulan Empire commanders are second to none, anyway.
    Well, maybe not the one IL mentioned, unfortunately.

  • '17 '16 '15 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    He was the original Romulan and he is a great actor BTW

  • '17 '16 '15 '12

    he definitly is a great actor. As Keras (not canon, this name, I think) and as Sarek.

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Benjami Stinkso has got nothing on the black captain from the last star trek movie, who gets a spear through his heart in the first five minutes.

    Ok, I know this post is off-topic, but I don’t know if there is a desire for it with a separate thread…but, if you could create your own Starfleet enemy what or who would it be?

    Star Trek vs Predator

    I suppose Xenomorph’s would do too?

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Star Trek Wars anyone? lol…


  • I liked the new movie but can you really top William Shatner? Love it when he is on family guy.

  • '18 '17 '16 '15 Customizer

    Picard was always my favorite, because I grew up watching TNG. But objectively, Kirk must be considered the better captain.

    Humans.  D@mn beings think they whole universe revolves around them!  I’d love to see the United Federation of Planets turn on Earth and destroy it, or at least subjugate it (since they are all for freedom, it would be great irony!) then have, maybe, an oberth class starship or reliant class starship work to build a new coalition to liberate Earth!

    Heck, they altered the timeline anyway with the Romulans going back in time to demo-Vulcan.  This could be natural fallout!
