You're the Captain and you've been given a list. Which three Commanders would you choose?

Re: Who would you have serve as your commander? (Choose 3)

I chose Spock Prime, Montgomery Scott from The Motion Picture, and Worf from DS9. Worf would handle everything tactical, Scotty would maintain engineering, and Spock would handle science missions and work next to me as my first officer.

Re: Who would you have serve as your commander? (Choose 3)

I chose Riker, Beverly and Kira. I'd have Riker as First Officer, Kira could do tactical / security and Beverly as CMO and possibly science if necessary.

I chose Spock, Scott and Kira. They're all smart, tough and have the right temperaments.

I chose Scotty to help me keep things running, and I chose T'Pol and Shelby because like the rest, they're competent officers, plus, sexy.

Did we ever see Prime Kirk as a commander? I thought he started the series as a captain. I put Janeway on there because the series referenced her Commander years on a few different occasions. If you choose her, you'll get the reckless Janeway who'll do things on her own by herself.

I only saw ST:TFF once and it's been awhile but wasn't he a captain too?

No Jadzia Dax? Not much drama, so I think she would be perfect.

Decker was captain of the Enterprise during its refit but was temporarily reduced to commander during the V'Ger mission.

Why would current captain's be excluded? Kirk, Pike, Picard and Decker are all on screen characters who obviously would've served as XO's as some point during their tenures in Starfleet. Might've been better if you had excluded everyone above a certain rank? Perhaps this poll should've only included characters who had not yet made it to first officer?

I'd also question why someone like Shran would be included? We never saw him as anything other than a starship captain. Poll seems kind of biased.

I left Lieutenant Commanders out and focused on people who made it to the Commander rank.

I'm already have 30 entries, I wasn't about to add all the captains too. It's a commander poll focusing on commanders. I already have a captain's poll.

And Shran started off as a commander. The people you choose will be the commander version we see on screen. You don't get the captain version of anyone posted.

Which makes no sense, since you have Sisko and Janeway on the list...

Like I said before, it seems like there's some bias at work here.


And Shran started off as commander.
We see Shran in command from the very first time we see him in "The Andorian Incident", just because his Andorian rank is commander doesn't mean that it is equivalent to the Starfleet rank of commander.

My four, going by my criteria of officers who haven't made it to XO...

1. Lt. Commander Scott - TOS
2. Lt. Sulu - TOS
3. Lt. Commander Data - TNG
4. Lt. Commander Dax - DS9

We've seen Sisko as a commander and heard of Janeway's exploits as a commander. Don't you think because I don't have Kirk and Picard up there because I don't like them? They're my favorite captains.

If you want to make a Lt. Commander poll, go ahead, I wasn't and I'm definitely not now. You're just going to say why didn't I add all the lieutenants.
