    Apologies if this has posted before. I checked the first 5 pages and the closest thing I saw was a discussion thread for the best captain. Since not all Trek shows' lead character are starfleet captains, I'd thought I run a poll on who people think is the best lead character .
    I have only seen one episode of LD but I think I have the correct character listed. (someone correct me if I'm wrong). And I think Dal is the main lead for PROD but maybe it's Gwynn ? Or are they co leads ?

    Mariner and Dal are the two I would've called the lead as well, though I suppose you could argue that Mariner and Boimler are kind of co-leads.

    I toyed with idea of listing Picard twice since it can be argued you can have different opinions on him depending on which show . Decided against it to make things more streamlined. So if your someone who loved TNG Picard and disliked PICARD'S Picard (or vice versa), I suggest you average it out :biggrin:

    My thoughts:
    Kirk: While TOS wasn't my main Trek, it is hard to overstate the character's importance to the phenomenon as a whole.
    Picard: Helped Berman era Trek find it's own identity. Smart, cerebral, and with enough weaknesses (isolated, bad with kids) to be human.
    Sisko: The most well-rounded Trek protagonist, and the one who took the greatest character journey.
    Janeway: Yes, she made mistakes. But she was still awesome.
    Archer: Inoffensive, but unexceptional.
    Burnham: See "Archer".
    Mariner: I find her irritating, maybe because I'm more like Boimler.
    Tal: He has his moments. But needs seasoning.
    Pike: Too soon to be sure, but I like him so far.

    Multiple votes make it difficult to pick just one or two.... So I picked several characters. Kirk, Sisko and Picard among them.

    Sisko and Pike :bolian: (My decision for Pike is based solely on his appearances in DSC as SNW is not out here yet :wah:)
    Picard would have been up there as well, but I didn't really like him in his own show, so he was "averaged out". And Mariner almost made it but I just find her too much sometimes.

    For those who chose Burnham, can you provide any insight as to why you like the character? Genuinely curious. Not a fan of her but I don't Outright dislike the character. Would be interested in hearing other people's perspective.

    Sorry, I was thrown by the use of the word "is."

    Was that Clinton-esque of me?

    Nah, I thought we had to pick just one. :p

    Kirk (TOS, TAS)
    Picard (TNG, PIC)
    Sisko (DS9)
    Janeway (VOY)
