Trek Geeks #231: Captains Courageous


They’ve boldly gone and explored strange new worlds. They’ve made the decisions of life and death for those under their command. They’ve upheld the best traditions of Starfleet.

With the 54th anniversary of Star Trek being celebrated this week, Bill & Dan take a look at the central figures from most of the Star Trek series: the Captains.

From Captain Christopher Pike in “The Cage” to Acting Captain Saru in Star Trek: Discovery, we’ll look at what makes these characters worthy of the Center Seat and why they embody the best of Starfleet.
