Best Starfleet Captains
 
It may be hard to find anybody who doesn't answer either Kirk or Picard for the best of all-time, but how would you fill out a top 5 Captains? The "best" may be debated elsewhere, but I don't think the debate even gets interesting until you get past 1 and 2. My list is here. I have a few unconventional choices. I'm curious to see what you think of these 5, and what 5 you would all choose...

"Best" Starship Captain can cover an awfully wide range of categories, not all of them necessarily compatible with each other.

Your fifth choice of Mackenzie Calhoun makes no sense. Other than in some alternate universe, the guy would have been shown to the closest air lock as soon as Starfleet figure out who he was and put together the details of his back history.

Calhoun really is kind of pathetic.

My Top Five, in no order:

Capt. James T. Kirk
Capt. Benjamin Sisko
Capt. Edward Jellico
Capt. Hikaru Sulu
Capt. Will Decker*

(* - okay, a bit of a stretch maybe, but the kid looked like he had potential)

I would not mind have served under Captain Benjamin Maxwell (TNG: The Wounded). He seemed like a very honorable and trustworthy man.

You mean honorable, other than killing all those Cardassians?

Maxwell was right all along! I wish they had brought him back along with other Maquis sympathizers like Tom Riker and Cal Hudson. Did the latter survive or was he killed? Can't recall.
