Top 50 Star Trek Characters – #4 James T. Kirk
Captain James T. Kirk. The legend himself.
He was the first Captain (wellllll…technically the second depending how you look at it) that started it all. Known as more of a fighter than a diplomat, but could also use his wits and talk almost anyone (or any
computer thing) into doing the right thing. Relied heavily on his two best friends and officers, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy, for guidance and advice. He was the balance between the two extremes that were those supporting characters.
In addition to being quite the ladies man, Kirk could also hold his own in a fist fight, which seemed to happen a lot more in his heyday than any other incarnation of Star Trek. Also a great strategist when it came to interstellar combat. He was the model that all Captain’s have been compared to, and if the countdown were based purely on this blogger’s favorite characters, he would rank above them all.
The debate rages on.
