Saw the other thread and musing now. Back when the "Kirk vs Picard" (and "Data vs Spock", etc) debate theme was all the rage, I frowned at how TNG's best episode was their captain learning to play a little flute. (and crying) OTOH, Kirk saved Earth multiple times and kicked a lot of butt. Not trolling, I really feel it's a no-contest. ps. Spock's dad can beat up Data's dad.
