Random Geek Question: Favorite Captain
I have to say I was a bit surprised by the results. I knew Janeway, Sisco and Archer wouldn't get many votes but I really thought Kirk and Picard would be neck and neck. Well they weren't, one of these guys ran away with it. And that person was Captain Jean Luc Picard, he by far was the favorite. I got about 23 replies on Twitter and 2 on Facebook and I would say 75% of you said Picard, with 24% for Kirk and less then 1% for Janeway, Archer, Sisco and even Captain Jellico (who has to be my least favorite Captain of all of Trek).
Most of those who voted for Kirk didn't say he was the best but that he was the first Captain that they saw on Trek and there was a sentimental connection to him.
