6 'Star Trek' Captains, Ranked from Worst to Best

• By Elizabeth Howell

The Shakespeare-quoting Capt. Jean-Luc Picard. Capt. John Archer, the reluctant diplomat. And so on. How are we to take the measure of these captains to figure out who is best?'s Elizabeth Howell, who has watched all of the live-action TV series as well as the Hollywood movies, weighs in on the main captains featured in the live-action TV series and Hollywood movies. (We've ignored some of the characters who become captain temporarily, or who are only shown briefly, such as Capt. Pike.)

We're releasing this slideshow just days before "Star Trek: Discovery" airs, which is a prequel to all of these other series. In an intriguing twist on the shows' usual format, the star of "Discovery" is not actually a captain, but the first officer of the USS Shenzhou. We're looking forward to learning more about Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green). ['Star Trek: Discovery' Premiere Unites Starship Casts Both New and Old]
