Kirk vs. Picard

Dammit I've had it!!

There are heretics within these sacred halls that have the unmitigated gall to believe that Picard can even begin to hold a candle to our beloved Captain James T. Kirk. While both are accomplished, Kirk is easily the winner. I won't go into details. If Captain Blood and I can agree on this, everyone can see the obvious answer.

Vote.

Don't screw this up.

Got to go with Kirk. Whenever I see Picard, I think of Scrooge from A Christmas Carol.

He was great in that.

It’s hard to beat Kirk since he is the original. Kirk is more daring and more of a risk taker. Picard is a bit more cerebral but also ballsy when pushed. I like them both but didn’t want to like Picard in the beginning.

I will add that I think Chris Pine was a worthy successor to Shatner in the new movies.

Just like Craig was to Connery.

It was those guys that brought me back to the franchise's.

#9 made me spit coffee on my monitor. So true. He probably would send him to the mail room to sort mail till he grows up.

I don’t think Kirk would like the idea of LCDR Data either. Remember when he was accused of murder and the attorney he chose only used books to reference? He doesn’t trust computers, only uses them as the tool they were originally intended for. Spock was as close as a LCDR Data but also had human characteristics, could bleed and had other living being attributes. That’s why they were best friends and he trusted Spock implicitly.

Spock was half human and chose to repress that side of him while Data was all machine, all logic and overtly wished he was human with a touch of emotion. Yeah, Kirk would have stationed him in engineering where Scotty would have taken him apart...

Kirk would have talked Mr. Data to death, just like he did to countless other computers.

More importantly, Kirk faced off with GOD/SATAN in one movie...and wasn't impressed or intimidated.....

I thought Kirk and Spock were bitter rival at the start.
