For those Trekkies Out There - Kirk or Picard?

It's a long debated topic that I'm interested in hearing your ideas on. Basically, who is your favorite Enterprise captain? Tell me a little on why you chose that particular captain - was it wit, charm, good looks or something else? For me, my captain of choice is Picard. True, I was a Riker fan, since he took over the role of being the one to bed all the alien ladies so Picard could be more of a staunch moralist or some such. But who couldn't like Picard? What with his interests in archeology and his earl grey tea, hot. After TNG, as well, I never got into a Star Trek series as much. DS9 never interested me and Voyager? Eh, Janeway started out ok but degraded as the series went on. Picard all the way for me.

Picard is the one I prefer. he is more sophisticated and a better actor. never over the top like Kirk...the classic Star Trek is playing where I am at now and it is still worth watching.

Picard all the way! He was more intelligent than Kirk, he had a better head on his shoulders, he understood when it was alright to bend or even break the rules better than Kirk, and he just seemed to have a better grasp of what it is to be a captain than Kirk did. Kirk was a stubborn, pig headed lady's man. Spock was much more qualified to be captain than Kirk was. I liked DS9 well enough, but I couldn't stand Janeway on Voyager. They really shoved the idea of "OMG LOOK! WOMAN CAPTAIN! WE ARE SO PROGRESSIVE!!!' down our throats. That irked me.
