    Yup.
    You might have meant slave girl, but "salve girl" has started my imagination going [drools].

    none of them

    Captain Pike (Jeffrey Hunter). he had the tough looks, and probably a broader range than Shatner. Shame he didnt stay.

    As a person I preferred Janeway but if I wanted the job done I would go for Kirk.

    Only if that job entailed blowing ones own trumpet. Piccard is your man, clever, wise, modest, diplomatic, and comfortable with his hair loss :clap:

    As long time Trek fan - has to be Kirk. Shoot first ask questions latter - Picard was vice versa. That said - any one know where I can get the Star Trek TNG DVD sets cheaply?

    No I would say Kirk was more resourceful but get the job done no matter the cost, a bit gung ho.

    Picard as you say.

    And Janeway probably the most approachable and would not leave a member of the crew behind.

    Also. lets remember that Picard needed Kirks help to sort out one guy in generations. I bet if the roles had been reversed kirk would have done it all himself :D

    Picard for me.
    As the character Picard I always felt he would be the perfect father figure.
    Not necesarely as Patrick Stewart though, which is what I think makes him such a good actor.

    They are two very different people!

    As picard he commands so much respect and admiration. Ive always wondered how similar Picard and Stewart really are if at all?

    Picard is the only one of the lot to whom I would feel safe entrusting that kind of firepower. I think Patrick Stewart is really rather a good actor - underrated. The only thing I never quite believed in is that Picard was actually French. The relationship between him and Riker, particularly, always struck me as being the epitome of the relationship between a wise, experienced, British captain and a hot-headed young american first officer. Riker, I felt, might be very good at starting wars, while Picard would be good at preventing them. :)

    If you are interested in seeing (or rather reading) Riker as a Captain, there is a good startrek book out now called "Titan". Set after the events in "Nemesis", Riker gets his own command with Troy as his first officer. Rather good book. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Since we wont be getting any more trek for a while, these books make a good substitute.

    (Sorry, off topic)

    Well, there is a PC (only?) MMORPG in development.

    There is also a possible movie featuring one cast or another.

    Shatner recelntly announced some new books featuring Spock and Kirk before they joined starfleet also explaining how they got into starfleet.

    Then there are all the other books and such.

    TV show wise, It doesnt look bright just now. When Enterprise finished Braga and that other oaf said that "the frachise needed a rest" and that it had suffered from "over exposure".

    Hopefully in a few years, they will make a new show with a whole new cast and be as good and refreshing as TNG was in its day.
