Who's the best Star Trek captain: Kirk or Picard?

If you want to rile up Trekkies, just ask them who's the best captain in the franchise. James Tiberius Kirk was the franchise's first captain (played by William Shatner) and later rebooted in J. J. Abrams' "Star Trek" film series (played by Chris Pine). But so 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 they're not just Starfleet captains... they're rap gods.

Kirk and Picard also met in 'Star Trek: Generations' ... but it was not the franchise's finest hour.

#TeamKirk

Trekkies celebrated the birthday of the ORIGINAL "Star Trek" captain. Take that. 

#TeamPicard

Captain Picard is the meme god! That's how you know he's been best captain since "Star Trek: The Next Generation" premiered in 1987.
