Cyborg had a good idea with that poll, but here we can have a whole thread and a poll dedicated to it. Who is the best captain ever? My fav is Kirk. Legends never die...
Post why you voted the way you did. I voted for Kirk because no matter what situation he found himself in, he never gave up. To him, there was no "no-win situation." :) Also, his style of command always appealed to me.
same reason as you said. :agreed:
kirk and same reason lol
I'd have to say Sisko. He had the same no no-win situation stance as Kirk, but he was also a major religious figure to the bajorans. Thats something Kirk can't claim. I mean, come on taking the Defiant to fight a Jem'Hadar fleet by itself is pretty bloody gutsy. Of course, he was saved by the Prophets, but that just justifies his religious importance.

I think Picard is probably the best captain because he takes command of a situation and does what needs to be done. Whenever he's around, other officers (even superior ones) seem to take notice and have a lot of respect for him. He also knows how to keep his cool in difficult situations which I think is important for any great captain.
Uh no, u guys it is clearly JANEWAY. She took a small, long range science vessel, missing almost half her original crew, and took it 70 000 light years across the galaxy. She single handedly took on species such as the Kazon, Hirogen, 8472 and even the borg, and suceeded. Using the limited resources she had, she forged multiple alliances with clearly hostile species (such as the borg) and used those to her advantage. AND unlike the other captains, she had no starfleet behind her to support her endeavours. She was alone in a hostile corner of the galaxy. And yet she prospered, and got the rag-tag ship halfway across the galaxy. She contributed to starfleets overall technology, and she hold many records (fastest speed attained, longest away mission etc etc) and better yet, she was promoted to admiral right after it (as seen in nemesis). Only kirk has achieved that honor (to my knoledge) Janeway is clearly the most resourceful and confident all the captains, so she is definetly the best.
I'd choose either Janeway or Picard. I almost have to flip a coin to choose who to vote for.
And who is Captain Jonathan Archer?
He's the captain in the new series Star Trek: Enterprise.
