Re: The absolute worst captain in Star Trek

My biggest problem with Harriman is the way he was written. It would have been far more satisfying to see a well trained, competent and vital officer need Kirk's help and advice than some noob who couldn't operate the head in his quarters without two cadets and an instruction tape! All this managed to do was make Star Fleet look ineffective and unprofessional. (I tell myself he was the yard captain who oversaw the building of the big E - (B) and Starfleet, for some undisclosed reason, allowed him to take her out of space dock for her trials.... I know. It still doesn't make any sense, but it lets me not cringe quite so forcefully......)
