Does the claimed, um, medicinal value of green M&M's apply to Kirk's green alien conquests?????

I'm a huge fan of the original Star Trek, and I voted Kirk since the poll is unfortunately skewed to these millenials...

That said; Picard did, almost singlehandedly, defeat a Borg Cube...

Kirk never wore green tights and frolicked about in Sherwood forest.

Also.....Kirk once fought a Greek god and won.

And on his ships.......there were Mini-Skirts. Kirk also had more dates than his first officer.

He's like Chuck Norris....there are hundreds of reasons why he was the man.

Who is this Picard you speak of?

1. Kirk
2. Jim Carrey in Star Trek scene in Cable Guy

Look there's no right answer. But if there is, it's Jean Luc Picard. Star Trek the Next Generation was epic.

LOL your words ring true! But in Kirk's defense:

1. Kirk has a better character concept along with history. Look how his character roots are portrayed by Chris pine? Picard on the other hand..did he have a "young Picard" movie? nope because his younger self is probably uninteresting.. Picard was probably a young pompous private school kid with exceptional grades and a bossy know-it-all attitude who drinks tea. Probably just like the young Xavier. Kirk drank alcohol at bars!

2. Kirk's acting can be up for debate. I think he accurately portrayed the paradigms of society at the time. Just like Picard did at his time. However, look at Kirk's acting in the motion pictures? Who has seen Wrath of Khan and can still vote Picard?

3. A man who isn't interested in alien poontang cannot be trusted to lead! He who doesn't, does not have a level of transparency to him. Look at Zapp Brannigan from futurama. He's the opposite of a leader however he still has his position because of his one saving attribute which is his transparency for his exploits of alien poontang.

4. While we're on this subject of Kirk's attributes, Kirk would have slapped Wesley with a backhand and then French kissed Wesley's mother in the same scene. Kirk has a higher entertainment value because he easily doesn't hesitate todo what we want to do deep in our hearts. Picard also provides entertainment value but the kind of entertainment you get when playing a game like chess against someone who is almost as smart as you.

I rest my case.

And to reinforce your case, William Shatner is a renowned Shakespearian actor. Anyone can reference his early career and see this.

His portrayal of Kirk is such an over the top manner was how the studio wanted it done.

Wait, Kirk defeated not only Tribbles, but a Gogon AND a Gorn. And had a green chick too.

I vote Picard.







NOT, settle down MK.
