Both, however, did have the necessary nerve needed for a leader in that situation, and they both listend to advisors, but always made their own decision. Picard, though, is more distant from his crew than Kirk, and also seems more "human".


Really, cause I remember Picard leaving the deck unnecesarily many times to be in the thick of things when in fact he should have stayed with the ship and provided leadership. But then I guess we wouldn't have as interesting of stories.

What year did the Borg thing happen? I wonder if that accounts for Picards emotional distance from his crew.

Picard played by Patrick Stewart......his looks, that voice....

As far as being leaders....well - each had his own style and it worked for them.

I agree. smile

I have to go with Picard as my fave. Kirk is a close second, though.

Picard had this almost james bondesque feel to him - so smooth, and debonaire. You knew who was in control of his ship!

But kirk was really hot back in the old days. Its so easy to foget how good looking he was given all the spoofs and remakes over the years - but he was a nice to look at.

OMG Moe-- the U Tube of Shatner!!! When the third Shatner appeared I had tears. That was great. Oh, but he was good looking back then. I enjoy watching him now on Boston Legal. He's still got something special.

And Riker married Laura from General Hospital? Where have I been? Has Riker been in anything since Star Trek?

It looks like he's doing more directing than acting these days:

Picard, by far. Smooth and calm, with more humanity than Kirk. Don't think that I don't like Kirk..I grew up on Kirk and TOS -- they still kick butt for something done in the late 60s.

I like Kirk the best, the older episodes the better. I love the old Star Trek shows. But Picard is right behind him.

The Rocketman thing is hilarious - and then there was a spoof of that by The Family Guy -
