    Star Wars > Star Trek.......by far!


    Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break, then will come roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions, that insane Berserker rage, of which the northern poets sing. That talisman is brittle, and the day will come when it will pitifully break. The old stone gods will rise from the long-forgotten ruin and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes; and Thor, leaping to life with his giant hammer, will crush the Gothic cathedrals!

    ---Heinrich Heine

    I've seen some of the episodes, and I amazed to see how often Picard is ready to risk the lives of his entire crew in order to fraternize with the enemy.

    This guy is mentally ill.

    Replace him with Seven of Nine. She understands the deal: Strike first or get killed!

    Definitely Picard. William Shatner is cool too, but Patrick Stewart RULES.

    EDIT:

    [RANT MODE]

    Also, Star Wars destroyed science fiction, and put an end to quality cinema made in the USA for the most part. Star Wars created the 80's. :speechles

    The Empire Strikes Back is not completely wortless, but all other Star Wars movies are.

    There was no other way for him to tackle the problems he encountered. Maybe you would be better to support that weenie Archer.

    A typical Star Trek encounter:
    Crewman: "Captain! We have an unknown contact!"
    Picard: "Maybe they are friendly!"
    Crewman: "But sir, they could blast us any moment!"
    Picard: "I know. But maybe they are friendly..?"
    Crewman: "At least we should raise our shields!"
    Picard: "NO! They may consider this to be an act of hostility. Maybe they are friendly?"

    Later...

    Crewman: "Thank God they didn't blast us to pieces!"
    Picard: "Yes, they could easily have done so. But I like to play Russian roulette. Now, off for another mission, Number One!"
    Seven of Nine: "You are an idiot, Captain Picard."
    Picard: "I'm sorry... But at least I am friendly."

    Hmmm... I bet the authors of Star Trek enjoy a pretty good income check every month.

    Otherwise my choice would have been Picard, but the guy (ot the TNG series as a whole) has too many things going for him that Kirk had not; Better budjet, better dialogue etc etc

    Kirk was the driving force of the original series, whereas Picard, while dynamic, intelligent etc, isn't in the same way the primus motor of TNG. Also, Picard oftentimes seems to rule by committee, whereas Kirk's word is law.

    Besides, Kirk got more girls and kicked more ass.
