What specialization would the various Star Trek series captains (Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, and *ugh* Archer) be if they were in STO? What abilities have they uses?

I specifically remember Kirk using Orbital Strike on a bunch of gangsters in A Piece of the Action. I guess that would place him in Engineering.

Good question.

I would put Kirk as Tac or Eng, Picard was Eng I think, he was able to discern a lot of things to do with engineering. Janeway was science that is clear, Archer would have to be Tac (with a conscience LOL). No idea about Sisko because I rarely watched DS9. Thing is you can't go by the colour of their uniforms so the only other way is to research the ways they operated.

Actually Picard was a Scientist, namely Archelogist.

I lean towards Picard being science. He's very much the philosopher captain. I wouldn't put him engineering as he defers heavily to his bridge officers for those matters I find.

Of course he was a scientist, I can't believe I forgot that Duh! Only watched every show 100 times too LOL

I actually answered this the other day in a different thread. It took a bit of research to find each captain's primary training prior to when they took command. Most were only mentioned once or twice in their respective series.

Archer is an Engineering Officer, a Test Pilot

Kirk is a Tactical officer, Hand-to-Hand Specialist.

Picard is a Science officer, an Archeologist.

Sisko is an Engineering Officer, a Starship Design Specialist

Janeway is Science Officer, a Geologist.

I always considered him to be more of a mouth-to-mouth specialist but we don't seem to have a class for that

That is not an official Starfleet task. Although, it did explain why he kept a doctor with him everywhere he went.

I think that pretty much nails it (also, Picard seemed to have some background as an astrophysicist or inclination towards it).

However, I think you could see secondary specializations for everyone BUT Kirk, who would be Tac/Tac.

Archer, I think, would be Eng/Sci, being big on his scientific mandate.

Picard would be Sci/Tac (in terms of strategy but also movies Picard, who was all Tac).

Sisko would be Eng/Tac (his hand to hand training as a wrestler/boxer and strategic expertise in the Dominion War although he was primarily a ship builder who was good at analyzing ships).

Janeway would be Sci/Eng.(She really liked to second guess B'Elanna and Seven and look over their shoulders on R&D).

In some respects, I think having limited access to a second set of ground and space skills would be more Trek and it would be nice to have freeform speccing as a Gold feature or let us pick a second ground tree with the next rank/level increase.

I think that,

Picard:Tac/Sci *Ship Control * Doff and Boff Advantages
Archer: Tac/Eng *Ship DPSx10* Engagement specialist*
Janeway: Sci/Tac *Fast Decisions * Crew Spacial Tactics** Traps and Weapon Power Spacial Rifts
Sisco: Tac *Assault* Power x20 *
Kirk: Tac/Eng *Speed* 2ndry Plans
