Re: Most badass captain?
Captain Rachel Garrett. She was ready, willing and able to take her damaged ship back into battle against 4 Romulan Warbirds knowing she would lose, just for - from her point of view - a chance to stop the Federation Klingon War before it began.
Did I happen to mention, did I bother to disclose, this man we're seeking with a mole on his nose, I'm not sure of his clothes or anything else, except he's Chinese. A big clue by itself.
