ST09 introduced us to strong, calm and competent captains. I think that's one thing TOS purists cannot deny as a good thing.
What are you talking about?
As for my vote for worst series Captain: sorry, it's got to be Archer for my money. I get that he's meant to be a portrayal of someone inventing the paradigm of the Starfleet Captain, but too often he just didn't have believable leadership qualities.
He's talking about Robeau and Pike.
With StiD, that solidified my great admiration for Bruce greenwood's Pike -- completely believable as an inspiring leader that would drive Kirk to be the Captain he is
