Repent, ye heathens, and say three Hail Robaus (or is it Hail Picards? Can't remember.)!

James T. Kirk was moving through the market place, packed with locals. Suddenly the crowd parted, there was Mackenzie Calhoun, swinging his pathetic sword back and forth. Weary of the display, Kirk pulls his type one phaser
and casually disintergrates Calhoun. Kirk continues through the market place.

I guess he did things that other Captains wouldn't have dared to do... like poison a planet.

Ah, he's a badass, no doubt. Having graduated from the Robau School of Awesomeness, he can't help but be.

Calhoun walks up to Kirk in a bar. Punchs Kirk. Snaps his neck as he does. Walks out.

IMO punching Q was his real act of badassness.

Re: Most badass captain?

Sisko did some pretty bad ass things (as mentioned- poisoning a planet, punching Q, facing down a Dominion fleet with one ship etc) but I wouldn't feel "uncool" if we were to hang out, ya know what I mean? He was bold. Sure. There's no questioning that. But was he really bad ass? When I hear that term I automatically think of Jim Kirk.

He was a womanizing, space faring cowboy who I would feel totally lame hanging out with. (Note: I'm not talking about William Shatner. I'd feel okay about hanging out with him.)

My vote goes to Kirk with Sisko in second. The other Captains, while each great in certain respects, do not meet my standard for bad-assery. I can conceede that they each had their bad ass moments though. (Janeway with her guns, Picard deciding to ram the Enterprise into the Scimitar, Archer cutting off Phloxs' head...)

Robau. I am a proud defender of his badassnes after all.

If someone could stand in his shadow it would be Sisco. I just love it when he hits Q.

Re: Most badass captain?

Hmmm, hard to decide, I'll have to think about this one.

One I'll have to mention though for consideration is Rachel Garrett (I think her name is), captain of the Enterprise-C. Sure in the alternate history she gets killed before she heads out to her final battle, but the intention is still there. Go back in time for certain death to avert a war that will destroy the Federation.
