The captain of the original Starship Enterprise getting compared to the captain of the Enterprise D.
The only question I
Ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk
Or do I like PicardOne of the most prevalent arguments in the Star Trek fandom is whether James T. Kirk of Star Trek: The Original Series or Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation is the better captain. This can range from just comparing the two characters alone, to a Fandom Rivalry about those two entire series, but the arguments persist, and in some cases can cause Flame Wars to rival the Joel or Mike rivalry. Oh, and of course some fans might Take a Third Option with the captains of the other shows, just further fanning the fanboy flames. A Sub-Trope of Cool Versus Awesome.
