I think you could say Picard is a good captain during times of peace and Sisko is a good captain in times of war. Either way great image, OP.

To be fair, Sisko never really got the chance to prove himself as a captain during peace time at all, so we'd never really know what he'd be like.

We'd never see him out of war tme anyways, considering he's at a constant state of war with himself anyways

TAS Kirk is easily the best. While every other captain needed at least an hour to solve the problem of the week, cartoon Kirk reliably wrapped shit up in 30 minutes.

Except the episodes where he doesn't solve it. Mostly because Spock does it. Like the one Niven wrote. Kirk's just up macking on one of his yeomen while his away team save the fucking universe.

I'm not a huge TAS fan but I think most of the best and worst things about it were the result of the format still being considered a kids medium. That there exists an eternal giant Spock inside a planet for all time means as far as I'm concerned it's CANON AS FUCK though.

I was wishy washy/didn't care about TAS canonocity until STD. If that counts TAS is certainly in, and about a hundred novels deserve consideration.

I'm not a huge fan. Didn't say I hated it. I agree with a lot of the things people say about the good bits, however being a 70s cartoon meant concessions were made and as a result it sometimes feels like they were trying to make sure they appealed to children as they went. Which was to the series detriment. Without this it may well have been the animatrix of star trek. But for me I can't overcome the lame jokes.

The compressed format works in its favour though. They were still learning to TV and sometimes TOS has wonky pacing (not always, sometimes it was bang on) however at 22 minutes it rarely drags.

This is a good point. We have TV now that KNOWS how to TV. Back then, TV was still pretty new. Hell, the reason for the bright colors in TOS was simply because color TVs were new to people. They needed it to pop and make people think, "WOW! COLOR!" Conversely, we now have Flare-Trek which eschews color in favor of darkness.

Don't even get me started on the **conspiracy** that is Deep Space Nine...

Okay, so up until DS9, what was every Trek show about? A STARSHIP. What is a starship?

It's a giant, tritanium-alloy space penis that ejaculates crew members onto strange planets.

Every other Trek show is about a giant space penis spreading its wild oats around the galaxy, sending landing parties down with little phaser penises on their hips, blowing up foreigners and seducing green & blue space women.

All of the other captains are what? Single or unattached. Even in the case of Janeway, her partner is thousands of lightyears away, and she assumes that he has moved on and that she should, too.

They were classic male fantasies, of exploring, discovering, fighting, and fucking.

Now, along comes DS9. What is the main location at which events occur in DS9?

Deep Space Nine itself, of course. A giant, ring-like space station, floating in a stationary orbit above a single planet. It's a giant space vagina! A space vagina attached to a single place, Bajor and the wormhole.

Much of the plots involved in DS9 are not about exploration at all, but rather the crews interactions with alien races who COME TO THEM, in giant space penises, through the wormhole. Alternatively, they deal with things going on with the Bajoran homeworld, or other things going on in the galaxy that somehow affect the station from afar, or directly by coming to them.

On top of that, DS9 is well-known for more character-oriented narratives. It is even sometimes called a "sitcom in space" or a "tv drama set in space". I've even seen it called a "soap opera in space". That is, the show is more about the social interactions and relationships between the characters than about the exploring, discovering, fighting, and fucking of other trek shows.

Additionally, who is the captain of this giant, space vagina? It's a man, yes, CPT Sisko. However, who is captain Sisko? He's strong, confident, determined, yes, all qualities we look for in our Trek captains... however... what is his social situation? He is a father! And his child... lives on the station with him! And yet, he's conveniently single, his wife died.

So, a strong, determined leader... who has shown he has the ability to attract a mate and sire a child... and not only that, but RAISE that child, single-handedly... what is this? It's a whole collection of signals to the viewer that Sisko is an ideal mate.

So... from all of these cues from the show, what can we determine?

DS9 was meant to attract female viewers to a show of which the fandom has historically been dominated by men.

Now, there's nothing wrong with any of that. I'm just pointing out that DS9 is very different from every other Trek show, and there is a very particular reason for that.
