Is it even close? It's Picard!

Sisko to win a war.

Picard to prevent a war.

Kirk to defeat a superior force one on one.

Janeway to supply the coffee.

Archer to yell at aliens.
Ha!
I guess I'll have to go with Picard as my favorite.

My least favorite would be Spock(I like him as a character, but don't put him in command!)

Data was in command of a ship at least once, can I pick him for a favorite? It's hard to pick a least favorite... can we promote Chakotay to captain?

Give Archer a break, guys! He's not used to making decisions solo! Normally, he has a guy from the future HELPING him! Well, helping except when he looks crazy because people see him talking to thin air.

Favourite: Picard, without doubt.
Least favourite: Jellico. In my opinion you can be a strong leader without being a douchebag, apparently he didn't share this idea..

Favorite: CAPT Jean Luc Picard - Superb leadership style.

Least: CAPT Benjamin Sisko - He had two speaking styles. Low mumbling on one end of the spectrum and loud enunciating the shit out of his words while screaming on the other.

I never had any problem understanding Sisko. He generally spoke in a calm easygoing manner, but his voice could be like thunder whenever he was incensed and/or in a crisis situation.

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

Favorite is Kirk, both of them. I like Shatner's Kirk in the movies better than on TOS (he had a certain amount of cheese to him in the series, but matured well in the movies), and I like Pine's different take on Kirk. Both have good command presence.

Least favorite is Archer. I don't dislike him, but he seems to not have as much of a command presence, and also something about his mannerisms reminds me of George W Bush at times, and I can't stand GW Bush. Oddly, so does Trip~in fact if they ever do a movie about Bush, they need to get Conner Trinneer to play him.

There is a movie about Bush...it's called W. Personally, I would have called it "Dubya".

I meant another movie. Maybe that one could be called Dubya, if ever made.

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

Def. Picard is my most fav. and hard to say who I like least because each captain had there own unique way of commanding there ship. It would be either Benjamin Sisko or Katherine Janeway but I like them enough that I don't really wanna refer to them as my least favorite.

You didn't specify main characters, so I'm going outside the box:

Favorite: Captain Proton
Worst: Captain Dirgo (TNG: Final Mission)
Good one!

I don't want to vote yet since I haven't seen all of TOS or ENT.

From what I've watched (VOY, DS9, and TNG)....I have to say I love both Janeway and Sisko, although I think Janeway has more personality. Also like Picard of course.

Sooooo....Can I also vote for Captain Proton? I don't dislike anyone!

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

Although I'm mostly a TNG fan, Kirk is my favorite captain.

I like them all, but Sisko would be my least favorite captain because he had such a hard time accepting himself as the Emissary.

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

Oh, so we're listing B listers then? Alright.

Favorite: Edward Jellico... quite possibly the most effective captain we see. A man who will get the job done no matter the cost and a welcome deviation from the happy go lucky status quo.

Least: Jonathan Archer by virtue of he doesn't deserve to be an A lister.

Honorable mention: Erika Hernandez. Enterprise would've been better with her as the main captain.
