    Why Kirk Rules...

    The age old question... Who was the BEST Captain of the Enterprise. Well, personally, there is no contest for me. I mean, Picard was okay, but he was a talker, a dreamer... The guy from Quantum Leap? Bah. I picture him in a dress. The geek from Ferris Buehler? Tough call there. He didn't even get his tractor beam and his ship was toast.
