Below are some fan comments:
“Which captain would make the best parent? Got to be Sisko; he was the only captain to maintain a relationship with his kid. The only other parent captain parent was Kirk, but he had a very brief time with his adult son.” – Jason Kelly
“Anyone but Kirk... all of Kirk’s children died...” – Ben Grimm
“Kirk I imagine would be an awful absent father. Janeway OK, except for the 7-year absence. Picard? A man who doesn’t like children. Sisko seems to be a good parent, though.” – Michaela Lyktberg
“Mum Janeway, daddy Kirk. Now, they can give a child so much love, fun and discipline. As much as I love Picard, he would be an awful father: he doesn't like children, and is too cold.” – KloDiana Xhindole
