I give you this pic, just because. It's true.

Pic shamefully ripped-off from Mr. Furious. Whom I am sure ripped it off from someone else. And so on.

Smitty, unless I am mistaken, there is no way to contact you from this page. This is most disappointing. We really need a link to an e mail address.

I wanted to brag on how big the Mi State Fair has gotten. (Hint: it now puts the Indiana State Fair to shame, and we don't even solicit pros yet).

Signed,

Are you actually suggesting that James T. Kirk is the best Starfleet captain?

Smitty 9:32 AM  

Phil:

I will do a whole post on my blog about the MI State Fair and put a link in my link section as well as in the post. Viral marketing, baby. Gimmie the info.

And Steves...yes. Captian James T. Kirk was the best Starfleet Captain.

He was the original. Of course he was the best! (although I didn't watch the others...)

And here is another shout-out to steves avatar. Gotta be done.

Even if you set aside the campy special effects from the original Star Trek, the writing and acting are just not all that good when compared to the Next Generation (or even DS9). I never got into Voyager or Enterprise, so I can't comment on them. I can understand why the first series didn't last long.

Kirk never seemed like much of a leader. I found some gems on several "why Picard is better than Kirk" sites:

-Kirk fought over women. Picard had women fight over him.

-Picard was responsible for Beverly Crusher's husband dying, berated her son constantly in her presence, yet still manged to make her fall for him.

-Picard's ship actually has a BAR.

-Picard's family made alchoholic beverages for a living.

-Picard would never star in a show like "T.J. Hooker."

-Kirk fights like Adam West.

-When Picard has a holiday he goes home, gets drunk and brawls. Kirk sits at a camp-fire toasting marshmallows while singing "Row, row, row, your boat" .

At the end of the day, STNG had way better writing and better direct ties to real human moral dilemmas. That makes for good drama.

But here's some gems as to why Kirk is better than Picard:

--Kirk has sex more than once a season.

--One Word: Hair

--Kirk can beat up a Klingon bare-handed

--Kirk never drinks tea. Ever.

--When Picard was 37, he was only Captain of the lowly freighter, Stargazer. When Kirk was 37, he was Captain of the flagship Enterprise.

--The extent of Kirk's knowledge of Klingon vocabulary can be roughly translated as "GO F*CK YOURSELF."

Oh, by the way... Who cares who the best captain is:

I think we should let this discussion end. It is way to geeky, even for me. I feel so dirty.

Smitty 7:08 PM  

Hey steves. Live long and prosper, man.

steves 8:57 PM  

Smitty, Shatner has a message for you.

Smitty 8:45 AM  

I. Love. That. Skit.

Mr Furious 9:31 AM  

That skit is GREAT. Thank God for Youtube...

...which led me to this.
