Seeing as how you all managed to get through your discussion about Trek series and movies without coming to blows despite somehow not recognising that Wrath of Khan edges out First Contact for the top spot, I'll put this one forward: Favourite Trek Captain.

Oh and before we all get demoted I'd like to point out that Captain Daniel Butterworth is not eligible, and suggestions of Captain Jellico may lead to questions about your sanity.

I might have to give this one some thought, as I haven't really thought about it much before. Off the top of my head though I would probably have to go with Sisko. He did punch Q after all.

Kirk is my favorite, and I mean the Shatter Kirk, not Chris Pine., although Zachary Quinto as Spock and short lived captain makes me a bit weak in the knees. Picard also ranks pretty high in my book.

Pine did a pretty good job as Kirk in the new movies, but it McCoy who stood out to be the most in that movie.

I would have to go with Picard and Archer. Despite Voyager being my favourite series Janeway would have to be my least favourite captain.

57. Speaking of losing, Picard has never lost a first officer to a man who once made a career out of selling Chrysler Cordobas, either.
