Favorite Picard or Kirk. They are the 2 kings of Star Trek captains.

Other were just poor. Janeway had annoying voice, Archer had stick up his ass, Sisko wasent captain of the ship really.

And she promoted B'ellana to head of engineering.
As I recall, Torres earned that promotion by helping Voyager get out of a precarious situation in "Parallax." The post wasn't given to her.

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

B'elana was a utilitarian promotion. She'd proven herself to Janeway that despite her discipline issues she was just a better engineering than lameboy. Also the promotion was a message to the Maquis that they are equal members of the crew.

I didn't know until recently that all human characters in Voyager were under explicit instructions to be lame.

It's true Janeway was a hypocrite in some ways but that isn't necessarily a negative for a fictional character.

I'd prefer that over Archers perpetually slightly annoyed manner of dealing with everyone and everything.

My fav is sisko because i liked seeing a captain who was a family man and i personally enjoyed his emissary story.In the pale moonlight also cemented him as the captain i like the most.

Picard sadly gets my vote as my least favourite but not because i dislike him i just like the others a little more.
How in the world can you like Archer and Janeway more than Picard?

Re: Who is your favourite and least favourite captain?

1.Kirk - soldier, diplomat, tactical genius, could hold his own leading a fleet of ships, or in a bare-knuckle fight; everything a starship captain should be.

2. Picard - the thinking man's captain, perfect man for the time in Federation history that he served in.

3. Sisko - had the best elements of both Kirk and Picard, I only rank him third because I didn't want to have him share second with Picard.

4. Janeway - tough and resourceful, got her ship and crew home against all odds.

5. Archer - I always liked Archer, but he was always at a great disadvantage compared to the other captains, and lacked the seasoning and shared tradition that the others had.

They were all great, each in their own way.

Favorite: Picard, because he is so level-headed, almost never losing his cool.

Least Favorite: Sisko, because he is often too emotional to be rational. And to lead requires one to be rational.
