'Star Trek' Writer

Settles Capt. Debate ...

Kirk vs. Picard

Star Trek Captain Kirk vs Captain PicardThere was no way in the world "Star Trek" writer Brannon Braga would dare pick sides in the eternal nerd debate of who was the better "Trek" captain between James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard ... oh wait, YES HE DID!!!

Our photog caught up with Braga in New York City on Wednesday night and popped the question, 'cause let's face it ... dude's qualified. Braga's written for the TV shows ... "Next Generation," "Voyager," "Enterprise" ... and two of the Star Trek movies!

So, yeah ... no one is better suited to weigh in on the battle of the captains. He admits his choice might be controversial, but also explains why he made the pick.

Kirk was cool as a captain when he wasn't so busy sniffing for some semblance of a vajay-jay on anything with a pulse.

James R. - Los Angeles    

The Starfleet captain that spreads STDs through the galaxy - KIRK. The Starfleet captain that is bisexual and wants an android (Mr. Data) to sexually experiment with - PICARD.

it's always tough to compare captains because they had their own strengths and were captains at different times. Kirk was a seat of his pants, frontier captain who was great at winning. Picard was a by the book diplomat who could hold his own in a fight. if you are fighting a war, Kirk is the guy you want, but if diplomacy is the goal, Picard is your captain.
