This is all-encompassing. Not just who would win in a fight. Not just who would get the most women. Not just who had more hair.

KIRK or PICARD???!







According to Google:
James T Kirk = 368,000 results
Jean Luc Picard = 857,000 results

Jean Luc Picard is better than James T Kirk = 4,000 Results
James T Kirk beats the snot out of Jean Luc Picard = 182 results

Kirk wins = 451,000
Picard wins = 103,000

So I guess that Google would vote for Picard...


EDIT There are now two polls. Vote for who is better in each one. The first poll is just Picard vs Kirk. The second one compares all of the major captains.

Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
Pop, pop, hope no one sees me
Gettin? freaky
I?m nerdy in the extreme
And whiter than sour cream
I was in AV Club and Glee Club and even the Chess Team
Only question I
Ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk
Or do I like Picard

Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Fair
Got my name on my underwear
:music:

Physical fight? Kirk wins.
Picard's Enterprise(s) vs Kirk's Enterprise(s)? Picard wins.
Least irritating captain? Picard wins.
More respectable captain? Picard wins.
Going bald with dignity? Picard wins.

Picard was WAY more intelligent than Kirk could ever hope to be. If you had to put your life in one of their hands it would have to be Picard, no question.

Picard. He sounds like the guy from Rammstein, he had way more class than Kirk, and post-Star Trek he went on to play a superhuman psychic with the power to kill all life on Earth with his mind (while Kirk is busy slashing prices on airfare). Then again Kirk does kinda have a Christopher Walken effect working for him, so that's tricky...

Adam Quark would kick both their asses and leave them in the garbage can of history.

Picard definitely. Sure, Kirk got the women, but Picard could kick Kirk around anyday of the week. Remember, Picard was Borg once (called Locutus). I find it hard to believe he didn't have some residual "upgrades" to his physiology.

If I had to pick a full crew... it would be...

Kirk > Picard
Spock > Riker
Worf > Uhura
Data > Checkov (Although I'd want Sulu anyways)
Scotty > Geordi
McCoy > Dr. Crusher
Sulu > Moron Crusher
Saavik (Kirstie Allie) > Deanna Troi

Even if his "equipment" matches his racial profile... he still couldnt get as many women as Kirk or Picard.

I always thought it was a commonly known fact that Kirk was superior to Picard in all possible ways.

different captains for different times. Kirk was way better during the rough and tumble 'wild west' times of the original where as picard was a much better fit for the more 'civilized' TNG
