    It's hard to imagine, but THE SHAT became an octogenarian this week!



    Unbelievable, really. What a badass. Looking good for 80, too. There is much debate among the nerd community about who the best Star Trek captain was, but it's really a debate over fictional leadership qualities.

    FOCUS: Which fictional character would make the best boss? Alternatively, which fictional leader is the best (since many fictional leaders don't employ people in the traditional sense)?

    Have you actually seen him recently? I saw him interview Rush Limbaugh on his LazyBoy chair Charlie Rose type program and he looked like he was on deaths door. 1080p crystal clarity does not help hiding the age.

    He'd be a hard guy to work for in terms of not being able to slack off, but Captain John Sheridan from Babylon 5 is an awesome boss. He cares about his subordinates, is not a hypocrite, works hard, and imparts a sense of purpose and direction. Also, he helps save the galaxy and propels humanity towards a new age so, you know, that's kind of cool to be a part of.

    As cool as Kirk was, everyone knows that Picard was the superior Starfleet captain.

    Agreed. Kirk was a cheating punk. Picard was an upstanding gentleman.

    What's that you say? Kirk got laid all the time? Who cares? Any asshole can get laid. But it takes a real man to get stabbed in the fucking heart and live not to talk about it, because he's not some sniveling fratboy wannabee bitch who's looking for attention.

    Malcolm Reynolds. Demanding and profane, but endlessly amusing. Yeah, red dot away.

    Lisa Cuddy. Who wouldn't want to work for that amazing ass?

    Anti-Focus: Vader. Fuck that.

    Edit: Since the "best Starfleet captain" nerd argument has kicked off, I'll throw in my two cents for Janeway. Yeah, she's a bitch, but there's nothing wrong with some pragmatism. Furhter, you would have access to a holodeck, which you would under Picard, but last I checked, Picard's crew didn't have

    Seriously, how did a fucking Star Trek series land an actress with those looks?

    The thing is, the people who pull the "Kirk got laid, Picard never got any action" haven't seemed to watch much TNG.

    He had Troi's mom, Famke friggin' Janssen, and a hot archaeologist/con artist all over him. And that's just to name a few. And Picard probably put in a fraction of the effort that Kirk had to.

    I guess I should end my nerd rant there.

    As for best boss.

    Obviously,

    Let's run down the list,

    - Drink booze all day
    - Break into song all the time
    - Get to live in a labyrinth
    - Chase Jennifer Connelly
    - And get the Thin White Duke as your boss

    When and where can I put my application

    There is no "Kirk manuever."

    Besides Picard had to deal with all sorts of bullshit, that Kirk could have never imagined!

    - Klingons in Kirks day were a bunch of bitches with bad spray on tans. Not the shovel headed baddasses of Picards day.

    - No Borg at all. That's a whole headache that Kirk never had to deal with.

    - Q didn't drop in every so often just to fuck with Kirk and his whole crew.

    - Plus fuck being stabbed in the heart, Picard was also abducted by Romulans, and subjected to some pretty extreme torture. There are four lights indeed good sir!

    - I will concede that in the banging random space trash category Kirk wins in a land slide. But Picard has a Riker to take care of extraterrestrial groupies for him. Thus freeing the good captain to go about his busy schedule of whooping alien ass.

    Obligatory.

    You know I leave the Holodeck with a hollow dick.
    Cap-tain Pi-Card loves to get his dick hard.

    He kills unicorns. I like that in a man.

    And know this: he can replace you with a single phone call. There are dozens...HUNDREDS of scab demons out there that would kill to be in your shoes. Remember that next time you're pissing and moaning in your dark cubicle.

    I'd suit up every day in something sexy just to hear his hilariously sexist remarks. Right before I attacked him like a cougar. Rawr.

    Another chance for me to reference Young Guns.
