Who's the best 'Star Trek' captain: Kirk or Picard? | The Tylt
If you want to rile up Trekkies, just ask them who's the best captain in the franchise. James Tiberius Kirk, portrayed by William Shatner, was the franchise's first real captain (sorry, Captain Pike fans) and later rebooted in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" film series (played by Chris Pine). But many fans argue Jean-Luc Picard is actually the best captain, and we have the incredible Patrick Stewart to thank for keeping the "Star Trek" train going from the mid-1980s until the early 2000s, and now again in the new series "Star Trek: Picard."
