Sisko or Janeway. Archer would have driven me nuts. Though Sisko's blanking-out/vision thing might be a bit odd.
Yes Archer would I suspect very much irritate me IRL.

And much as I love the NX-01 (it's my favorite ship) when it came down to it I'd prefer the comfort and better defenses of the other series ships.

^ What if it wasn't on DS9, but rather a starship like any other captain? The Defiant, for example. Would you still serve with Sisko in that situation?

Re: Which Captain would you want to serve under?

Oh yeah if you're talking places it would be DS9.

But on the Defiant, NO WAY!! It's only purpose is to go do scary stuff!

I'm sure Jellico's crew on the Cairo weren't constantly bitching about his command style the way that TNG's were. In that case they complained simply because Jellico wasn't Picard.
Of course the crew of the Cairo wasn't constantly complaining. Did you see how quick Jellico booted Riker and next scene Data shows up in red? That still makes me laugh every time. But yeah, the complainers he'd have shipped off a long time ago.

Jellico -was- a hardass. But not a malicious hardass. He's no less effective than Picard. Picard would let his people have free run so long as they got the job done, whereas Jellico was pretty much a micro-manager who wanted direct control of everything. Just different command styles. Even though he clearly disliked Riker, he even pandered to him for the good of the mission, so that's always his priority. Jellico was personable and nice to everyone the first time he met them, so it's not like he's going out of his way to be a jerk.

Though my favorite Jellico moment was him telling Troi to put some clothes on.

^ And in Treklit, here's what Jellico does:



I figure anyone with that kind of power who still does that, is OK in my book.

Re: Which Captain would you want to serve under?

The problem with Picard is his nepotism approach. He lets Crusher's boy play on the bridge and gives him a regular bridge shift.

Imagine you're a security officer and Yar dies. Who does he promote to that new position? Someone who wasn't even in security! Same for throwing La Forge into the Chief Engineer spot when he wasn't even in the engineering department!

I voted for Sisko since he made Nog actually work for his position.

So, he couldn't "get it done"?

I'll go with Sisko.
