Besides Redshirts mostly die from doing stupid stuff, so I like my chances there.
He has a very valid point here.
I prefer captains that are competent and stable. That lets Archer and Janeway out.
I also prefer captains not to be punks. That kicks Mr. Pine's NuKirk out the airlock.
I find that a captain with a stick up his ass is far too ridged in his thinking. I'm afraid that sees Picard off the ship.
Which leaves me with Kirk and Sisko, either of whom would be fine. But since I'm not really interested getting mixed up in the Dominion War, and don't plan to do anything that's blatantly stupid, I'll go with Kirk.
