I love that Garrett gets so much love. That's the kind of thing that makes Trek fans so great.

Re: Best Starfleet Captains

Garrett had the balls to take on 4 Romulan Warbirds. Not out smart and/or run, fight. And she was willing to go back even though she knew they'd never survive. She's got more cajones than the other Captains put together.

Also, where does all this Robau love come from? I never saw anything special about him. He put the elder Kirk in command and sacrificed himself as it turn out for very little.

At least Janeway's sacrifice saved billions of lives, her ship, her crew and herself (Year of Hell). And around here she's not very well liked.

Robau is the Boba Fett of the Trek universe. Beloved even though he got little screen time and went out like a bitch.

Re: Best Starfleet Captains

It took a Romulan supership from the future, a demented insane warlord of a Romulan, planetoid destroying artillary, a ten foot metal trident, and blowing his ship out infront of him, just to kill him, face to face no less. Sorry but a 'few minutes' or not, that's a hell of a lot just to kill one man.

Sadly, no. He appeared only on screen on TNG's "The Wounded." Excellent episode, BTW. It's a shame that he was not brought back on DS9 as a Maquis Officer or at least a Maquis sympathizer.

Hard to be a Maquis while being incarcerated in a Federation prison.

1) Archer
2) Picard
3) Sisko
4) Pike
5) Kirk

Re: Best Starfleet Captains

I'm re-watching Enterprise, and halfway through the second season. While I find the show is sort of ambling along, I am gaining a new respect for Archer.

The Saratoga's captain, played by Madge Sinclair, was pretty badass.

Ditto for Tryla Scott.

I think Tryla Scott could have been cool, but as far as canon is concerned she was in all of one episode, and she was under parasite control the whole time.

I see her getting a lot of love on forums (same with Rachel Garrett) but it all seems to be based on a singular appearance. It would have been nicer to see more canon appearances by either character.

Maxwell was right all along! I wish they had brought him back along with other Maquis sympathizers like Tom Riker and Cal Hudson. Did the latter survive or was he killed? Can't recall.
Michael Eddington reported that Cal Hudson was killed during some kind of Maquis mission.
