    Oh it's sad.
    They are all missing the point.
    It's a shame that when they both appeared in the same film Kirk died before Picard got to say 'KIRK, go to your room!'
    JLP has wisdom and education. Kirk had a torn shirt and a blurred focus. Then he got fat and had a wig.
    No wigs for JLP!
    I'm an HR guy, and I wouldn't hire Kirk to do a paper round in case he got in a fight with the KHAN!s at number 42.
    I would employ Picard as ambassador to the galaxy though.

    But Riker won't get anywhere until he learns to stand up straight. If I were Picard I would tell him to stop slouching. It's bad for your Klingons...

    Good night, and may acting ensign Wesley Crusher be with you.

    Ha very funny stuff there Trip and not much I can add except Kirk boldly went where no man had been before but JLP followed him, so one man had been there and done it already :biggrin

    Picard 'boldly went and sorted the mess out' after Kirk had been there. Can you imagine how much more difficult it is conducting diplomatic negotiations with and alien culture who still remember Kirk thumping their grandads?
