If you aren't following Star Trek on Facebook, you're missing out. They post a lot of news and information about the franchise and occasionally ask the fans questions. Today, they asked which Star Trek captain would make the best president.
As I was online with my friend Kristin at the time, this question sparked a long debate about where we would place our captains within our own imaginary government. So, without any muss or fuss or jacked up voting machines, I give you:
Captains In Chief
Jean Luc Picard is the President. His sense of diplomacy and wisdom make him the most natural choice for the leader of our phoney government. As long as he isn't kidnapped and brainwashed by a much more powerful enemy, we're in good hands.
|Vice President Sisko|
Benjamin Sisko would obviously be the Vice President. Since he runs a space station every day, handles international incidents with regularity, and has a really personable demeanor, he'd do a great job with all the stuff (I imagine) the VP does. Also, he could totally throw out the first pitch at a ballgame and wouldn't embarrass himself.
|Secretary of State Archer|
Jonathan Archer loves making new friends. His wide-eyed sense of wonder mixed with his optimism for successful, peaceful relations between peoples, make him a great Secretary of State.
|Secretary of Defense Janeway|
