How would Captain's Archer, Kirk, Picard or Sisko have handled themselves had it been them that got thrown into the Delta Quadrent?

Caption Archer interest one NX Enterpise blow array up NX Enterpise no match Kazin starship one hand on other hand. Starship much slower USS Voyager take longer get home on other hand. Caption Archer no Prime Directive stop him trade techology for techology with Kazorn. Allow NX Enterpise make voyage back Earth out skimish Kazon or any other races. Caption Kirk tough one hand ship force retreat. Prime Directive at the time not so clear cut issues trade techology effect blace of power. Is not clear cut either at time TOS.  E


nterpise that Caption Kirk command no real match Kazon or any other race sector on one hand on other hand Caption Kirk might well fear blace power be destory give each Kazon sect the same techology in return for trade techology there techology. Allow again void get need fire fight other race go simlir speed USS Voyager.


Sisko as far Care station array goes unlikley blow up two differnt reason. First the able to do job Care station array would be behind Sisko fire power however blow Kazon starships up turn space dust not issues.  Secound death trap for sentance. Janeway did with USS Voyager having the able to return home. Sisko case return home be Care array station or start first Federation coloy Delta Quadrent. Also spirtal reason play role Sisko care great deal Bajor and welling great deal to defand it. Idea leaving Bajor not 70 years almust out question.If Sisko did for reason force stay Bajor find out wormhole aliens who know  maybe Worm hole aliens get him back rest crew.


Caption Pircard the USS Enterpise E would blow Kazon starship space dust.  They likley flee first sight of the USS Enterpise E. As for USS Enterpise D another story Pircard likley choose to try long joureny home.

When I was reading another thread sombody did compare Janeway as a female version of Kirk, so based on that, I'd say he would do pretty much the same thing. (Plus hitting on a bunch of hot alien chicks.)

Sisko would have curled up in the fetal position in some cargo bay.


Kirk would have mated with every alien species he came across


Archer would have blamed everything on Tuvok


Picard would have talked the ears (if they had some) off of every alien species


YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE JANEWAY!

Yup pretty much. Well, Picard may have been better than that. He may have destroyed the Caretaker's Array. But he still wouldn't have handled the situation with as much poise as Janeway.

Kirk's Enterprise probably wouldn't have made it home, nor the Enterprise under Archer. As durable as the Defiant is, they were not designed for distance, their supplies would likely run out quickly. Only Picard's Enterprise (D or E), stands a chance to survive the Delta quadrant like Voyager did. And they would have to, I believe Picard would do as Janeway did and destroy the array, leaving his crew stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Being a larger ship with a bigger crew and more assets than the smaller Voyager, I believe they could survive the long journey. I think Kirk would just use the array, Archer would want to stay and explore (bad idea in that old ship), Sisko would likely try to use the array but leave an torpedo on timer to blow the array once the ship was back safely at home. (I believe only the much smaller and manuverable Defiant would be quick enough to actually pull this off.)

Archer wouldn't play waterpolo, T'Pol would tell him that it is logical to use the array to get home, thus provoking him to stay in the Delta Quadrent just to prove her wrong.


 


Haha, that's probably pretty accurate about Archer I think. I could see him missing the obvious and getting stranded too. Caretaker was an episode with terrible writing. I mean I get they want to strand them in the Delta Quadrant, but even a kid could see the obvious solution to Janeway's "moral crisis" of not destroying the Array. Even in the 20th century we have these wonderful things called TIMERS we can attach to explosives that will blow up after they use the Array.

 Gosh, this thread is great!


Picard would have held endless conferences debating ethics while Kes and Wes Crusher would meditate together with 'The Traveler' to levitate the ship to the alpha quandrant. In the meanwhile Crusher would scream hysterically and Troi would get a headache when she tries to diagnose Neelix.


Sisko would fight the Kazon while Dax would figure out a way to send the Defiant home and self destruct the array afterwards, but maybe Bashir would hold them back trying to cure the caretaker.


Kirk would start to talk the Borg into self destruction by convincing them it was the most efficient way to perfect the universe, but then he would get a bad conscience by letting all those innocent assimilated-against-their-will women die, so he would seduce the Borg queen and find a way home after long romantic scenes with sappy music. Spock in the meanwhile would mindmelt with the central plexus and start sprouting Borg implantats giving McCoy a reason to swear and yell his head off.


As for Archer I don't know.

Considering the entire system was swarming with Kazon warships, I don't think that would be easy to implement.

Not as big a deterrant as you think. There was the one big supership that had already been destroyed(damaging the self destruct) and two smaller ones.


On numerous occassions Voyager has demonstrated it could engage and defeat two or more of those. Heck in basics they took on six of the larger ones and held their own.


Couple this with the fact that even in the episode as written the two remaining ships withdrew after Janeway blew up the array, even though the Kazon captain was rather po'ed, I think it's safe to say Voyager could have cleared the system without difficulty.


Remember earlier in the episode Janeway even told Tuvok to begin familiarizing himself with the Caretaker's systems so he could send them home. They had everything they needed available.


Really it's just poor writing, having that big kazon ship crash into the array could have just as easily damaged the send Voyager home thingie instead of just the self-destruct, but they had to force an artificial moral crisis into the plot.

*Picard- Destroys the Array, continues towards the Alpha Quadrant.  3 years later he encounters the Borg and goes on a Borg-Killing revenge streak and is eventually assimilated. 



*Sisko- Stop and think about the situation until the Kazon came and captured the Array.  Sisko leaves the Ocompa with their own problems to find another way home.



*Kirk- Use the array to get home.  After going on a date with some Ocompa of course...



*Archer- Tries to use the Array to get home, but T'Pol explains that the course of action is illogical.  Archer agrees.  A couple days later, he gets blasted to bits by the Kazon Ogla.



I was asked to write a 4 page essay on any subject of my choosing. I wrote about why ST Voyager is by far better than TNG and DS9, and that Voyager is Star Trek at it's best. And you can quote me on that!

Archer would probably have made the same decisions.


The rest would have done a better job upholding the Prime Directive and not pissing off everyone in the quadrant.
