Note, this is not another “Who is your favorite captain” or “Who is the BEST captain poll.”  Which one is best suited for this aspect of the Starfleet charter?
In other words:


If you are facing enemy ships or soldiers and this fight is definitely going to happen, who do you want taking point?

Gotta go with Sisko there. He's aggressive - both physically and while in command.  But he also does it smartly - he doesn't let his ego or temper get in the way (usually.)

I went with Kirk but it was tough between archer and janeway.  I know very little about sisko never watched DS9 (just a couple of episodes).

Sisko. He was definitely the toughest Captain, and the best soldier. He is the one, I believe, who came up with the plan for retaking DS9 when it was captured by the Dominion. Sisko was the best fighter.


Goodbye. I am gone.

This was an easy Sisko vote for me. He was tough with a highly strategic mind and actually helped designed what was probably the first federation battleship. None of the others seemed to have his fighting experience or know how.

I can just imagine Kirk trying to fight a Jem'Hadar in hand to hand combat...

He fought Klingons and Gorn hand to hand. There can't be that much of a difference.

Sisko.  He kicked some serious butt in the Dominion War.

It is interesting that all the votes for this one are Kirk and Sisko. In the explorer thread, nobody went for Sisko. I'm glad to see we can see where the strengths lie and not one was superior in all respects.

Kirk is the best soldier captain. He even said in an episode he was a soldier not a diplomat.

Sisko. He made a better Klingon than most actual Klingons, he designed the first Federation Warship, and he WON ACTUAL WARS. He is the best possible example of what any true military officer of ANY time period should be.


1st runner up, KIRK of course.

It's either Kirk or Sisko.  I guess, being a longtime TOS fan, I'm a bit more biased towards Kirk.  Certainly, because of the circumstances and length of DS9, we saw more examples of Sisko acting as a soldier. 


As an aside, my wife and I have been watching DS9.  She likes TOS a lot, thinks TNG is ok, but I've been kind of surprised by how much she is enjoying DS9 too.   She thinks it's a lot better than TNG and the closest to TOS, which is how I feel too.  


And, y'know, I think from seeing it again, my appreciation for Sisko has increased.   I always considered him a great captain, second only to Kirk in the franchise, but I never cared much for him as a character.  I dunno, I just never warmed up to Avery Brooks' Sisko the way I did to Patrick Stewart's Picard.  Now, though, I find myself liking the guy more.  I don't know quite why that is.  I still like Kirk and Picard a lot more, though.

Good point!  And what about all those gladiators in "The Gamesters of Triskelion?"
