    It wasn't like he was a bad guy or anything, just strict. I'm glad you reminded me of him.

    I guess he is a solid, realistic example of a more brute-force command style, so... cool. :)

    Kirk, nuKirk and Jellico.

    Sisko is a close fourth.

    Really BillJ you'd go with NuKirk? Too green for me, though obviously Starfleet didn't think so.

    But we have no evidence that he would.

    In fact, I recall he wasn't quite on top of his game during that ep.

    Anyway, Picard, Sulu, Martok, Shran, OldPike.
    Kirk has a nasty tendency to lose crewmembers all the time, Janeway is insane, Jellico is a blowhard and I'm sure not following a fanatic like Sisko or Kira anywhere.

    Edit: Guess I forgot Archer. Well, he's a decent enough guy, but he's not really that competent.

    Well, Jellico did in fact get the job done, he was just kind of a dick about it.

    I voted the straight ticket: Pike, Kirk, Sulu, Picard, Sisko.

    Yeah he did. He completely saw through the Cardassians ploy, played to their weaknesses, kept their plan to seize the planet from working and saved Picard to boot. If that's not evidence of getting the job done, despite some hurt feelings, I don't know what is.

    Riker just needs to put his big boy pants on and not throw a childish tantrum when he doesn't get his way. Had they launched a rescue mission like he wanted, the Federation and Cardassia probably would've gone to war that episode.

    Yes, I was talking about Will Decker. Matt got his entire crew killed, which isn't what I'd want in a commanding officer.

    All the captains nearly got their crews killed on more than one occasion. I don't think we see enough of Matt Decker to know what kind of commanding officer he was and whether or not he made a poor decision in beaming down the Constellation's crew.

    Will Decker would've gotten the Enterprise crew digitized right off the bat by ordering sensor scans on V'ger when they first spot it. So I'm not sure I'd want to follow him either.

    Pike, Picard, Sisko and Kira. I'd follow any of them to hell and back.

    It looks like Kirk, Picard, and Sisko is taking the lead (as I expected). I did think NuPike would out class his predecessor. TOS' Pike was a bit whiny. I voted for him because he came back by the end of the pilot and sacrificed himself (paralyzed) rescuing those cadets but NuPike seems like he has a more stable head on his shoulders and he has that father figure side to boot.

    Definitely Picard is my first choise. Calm and reasonable 90% of time, so it is impossible to fall into panic under his command.
    Also, I liked Captain Pike from Abrams' films. Maybe because of an actor.

    What no Captain J.T. Esteban? I picked Picard, Sisko, Sulu and NuPike.

    Archer, Picard, Sisko and nuPike. I'd have to see a little bit more of nuKirk before I could honestly say he had my absolute faith.

    I'd follow Kirk in any universe, as long as I'm not wearing a red shirt.

    Picard is the first to take the lead. It isn't by much and it could change instantly but it makes sense, the man knows how to weight his options. It's also good to see everyone on the list having at least one person in the Trek BBS that would follow them.
