Archer was the Captain who achieved much with little tech
Pike was a complete wuss
Kirk was the Captain of my youth and to me at least still the best of them
Sulu was a good officer and a good captain
Picard was doing his job but should have been assigned as a diplomat not a ships commander
Riker id have had placed under close arrest and replaced with Data
Data was efficient
Siskos great failing? he had Q down and didn't finish him
Janeway ???? Psychotic dog abandoning squeeky voiced borg loving child abducting mass murderer
as i'm aware of that this thread is senseless the more or less, cause it's about taste, i would like to take a guess :
for me it's more about the characters, or may the producers influence. roddenberry went from kirk to picard (also sisko in the beginning?! duno it), according to his fiction of star trek.
berman then started with letting almost everything explode. don't get me wrong. i just watched the ds9 seasons and found it an awesome professional, good series in whole (again).
all ended up with janeway, who (if you ask me) reminded me to picard in many situations.
for me picard as a character, represents the essence of what i always thougt was roddenberrys idea of star trek.
at least i grew up next generation, so i guess i'm infuenced ...

Picard had the opportunity to destroy the Borg for good via genocide, but didn't. Now we're all paying the consequences of his inaction. I'm sure taking the moral high ground has been of great comfort to all family and friends of the lives lost against the Borg since then.
You're all forgetting Solok was the best captain. He beat Sisko at his own game, baseball. Vulcan superiority forever.
