"Enterpise" was a big fat mistake, Archer gets a big fat zero!

They sould have started with Captian Robert April, on TV and the new flick.

What? No Sisko? Or will there be a Sisko vs. Sheridan vs. Sinclair thread later :-)

Romance: how on Earth does Janeway beat Picard on Romance? Her only real romantic interest (unless you count Q) ended up hitched to Seven of Nine. ISTR Picard having a couple of romantic entanglements (even assuming his history with Guinan was entirely platonic) and eventually landed Dr Crusher (wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey issues aside).

Ego: I'd also put Janeway at 8-9 on the ego scale, and Picard a bit lower - he had an easily-offended sense of dignity but that's not quite the same as self-importance.

Intelligence: Come on... Picard by a mile - the only captain to get by without a Vulcan sidekick to do the heavy mental lifting.

Sorry about the Sisko issue.

I left him out for two reasons

1. I haven't watched the entire run of DS9.
2. Based on what I watched, he is a very good decision maker, but DS9 is drifts just a tad too far from "traditional" Trek.

I'll just include all the ones you're snubbing:

Toughness:
Mackenzie Calhoun (Excalibur): 11 (as evidenced by the scar on his face that he sealed closed with a red-hot knife, without anesthetic. )
Katerina Mueller (Trident): 10 (though her facial scar isn't quite as badass as Calhoun's.)
David Gold (daVinci): 5 (he's a thinker, not a fighter.)
Sonya Gomez (daVinci): 6 (speculating, based on her skills as Gold's XO --I haven't really seen her in action since he retired.)
Kira Nerys (DS9): 9 (growing up during the Occupation.)
William Riker (Titan): 8 (his best friend is a Klingon.)
Ezri Dax (Aventine): 6 (she's small, but scrappy.)
Asfarah Eden (Voyager): 7 (tough as nails.)
Cmdr. Elias Vaughn (Defiant, acting-Captain): 10 (human Starfleet Intelligence officers don't live into the triple digits without being scary-tough.)

Strategic mindset:
Calhoun: 7 (he's his world's "Alexander," but he relies too much on brute force and attitude.)
Mueller: 7 (she takes after Calhoun.)
Gold: 10
Gomez: 10
Kira: 10 (again, the Occupation taught her how to fight smart.)
Riker: 8
Dax: 7
Eden: 6
Vaughn: 10

Romance:
Calhoun: 6 (married to Admiral Shelby, but was never much of a ladykiller before that.)
Mueller: 1 (a long succession of one-night stands, no "relationships," just sex.)
Gold: 10 (a devoted husband with a small army of children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and a couple of great-great-grandkids by now.)
Gomez: 5 (her One True Love died just before he could propose.)
Kira: 8 (AFAIK, she and Odo are still a couple, even though he's on the far side of the galaxy.)
Riker: 10 (Riker's romantic exploits are legendary, even if he is now married.)
Dax: 3 (broke up with Julian, has apparently not had a serious relationship since [or before, for that matter].)
Eden: 3 (BAD: married a patronizing self-obsessed blowhard. GOOD: divorced the jackass.)
Vaughn: 6 (was married. Wife is dead, daughter estranged.)

Intelligence:
Calhoun: 4
Mueller: 4
Gold: 10
Gomez: 9
Kira: 7
Riker: 8
Dax: 8
Eden: 9
Vaughn: 10


Ego factor:
Calhoun: 11 (when Shelby first said she loved him, his immediate [and totally sincere] response was "As well you should.")
Mueller: 10
Gold: 8
Gomez: 7
Kira: 8
Riker: 9
Dax: 7
Eden: 9
Vaughn: 6

Likeability:
Calhoun: 5
Mueller: 4
Gold: 10 (Gold is like your fun Grampa who used to tell the funny stories at Thanksgiving.)
Gomez: 8
Kira: 8
Riker: 9
Dax: 9
Eden: 4
Vaughn: 9

HAHAHA!!! I kept thinking WHO IS CAPTAIN REYNOLDS????

Looks like he's pretty low in the Strategic, and Romance dept.

Good critique Chris.

If it did, there would be a stolen uniform involved, Kirk would have unexpectedly acquired a new wife and it would all end with Mal, with a hold-full of tribbles on the run from Starfleet, the Maquis and the Ferrengi and Kaylee (in a blue funk after the Borg scanned Serenity and said "we're not assimilating that junkheap").

Hmmm. Your list is suspiciously close to mine.
I've been wondering what the devil on my shoulder has been doing lately.

If Mal was in Trek surely this would mean he'd left the Maquis/Independants and joined Star Fleet/the Alliance.

No one is giving Janeway very much credit in the toughness category. Are y'all forgetting the year of hell episode? I know to them it never happened be we can take it into consideration.

Must be great minds and all that if we agree so closely.
Now if we could just agree on Indy 4....
(Not that I'm trying to bring that up again).

Technically Jellico's an Admiral now.

Well, technically, he's an ex-Admiral now, but he spent more time as an admiral than he did as a captain.
