Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?
 
My fav is sisko because i liked seeing a captain who was a family man and i personally enjoyed his emissary story.In the pale moonlight also cemented him as the captain i like the most.

Picard sadly gets my vote as my least favourite but not because i dislike him i just like the others a little more.

Picard is my favourite. He's an intellectual, a diplomat, sophisticated and a blend of my two favourite countries: UK and France. He seems to me to be the Captain who stands up for human (and alien) dignity and rights.

My least favourite would be Captain Archer. I admit to not having seen a lot of Enterprise but he was bland, dithered a lot and had little charisma.

Favorite: Captain Kirk, a great captain and childhood hero of mine. Brilliant at strategy and coming up with unique situations to problems.

Least Favorite: Captain Janeway. She was okay at times, but I didn't always agree with many of her decisions and didn't think the writing for her was very consistent.

Picard would be my favorite. To me, he pretty much epitomized what a Starfleet captain should be. A cultured man, calm in a crisis, a skilled diplomat and negotiator, who quietly won the loyalty and respect of his people by being quietly competent.

Archer... is the exact opposite. He often seemed panicked as if he was over his head much of the time. He seemed to have zero diplomatic skills, quarreled with his subordinates regularly, and never had a plan for anything. While he was good at improvising his way out of situations, he'd have avoided getting into most of them if he had just listened to his subordinates or done some planning ahead of time.

As for middle of the pack? Sisko, Kirk and Janeway in that order.

Kirk or Picard for me. OK - Picard, he's more cerebral.

And Janeway. Couldn't stand her. Maybe played by a different actress she'd have been less awful, but I don't know...

Favorite: Benjamin Sisko-the most realistic and down-to-earth captain.

Least favorite: Jonathan Archer-I just don't think this captain had much swagger to him.

Favorite: Picard

No character in history has more moral force than Picard.

Least favorite: Archer

Archer had a way of delivering lines that I just found irritating.

Favorite: Kirk. Big risk, big reward character.

Least Favorite: I really don't have a least favorite.

It really is a serious tie between kirk and Picard. I can't choose a side because they're both so good yet so different. Archer would be my least favorite.
