About This Quiz

It's hard to believe "Star Trek" has been a part of pop culture since the 1960s! We've experienced the original crew with Captain Kirk on TV and then in cartoon form and later on the big screen not just in their familiar form but in a rebooted form, too. We met Captain Picard and a new generation of a crew, followed by a vastly different environment on space station Deep Space Nine. Then we got to experience a terrifying new part of space with the crew of the USS Voyager before heading back in time to meet Captain Archer and the crew of the very first USS Enterprise. All of that lead to the dark and fast-paced universe in which the crew of the Discovery exists.

With all that Trek to draw from, the Captains have really managed to set themselves apart as people with real and interesting personalities.  They approach problems with different tactics, and debating which one was best has become a Trekkie past time. But which one do you think is most like you? If you were tasked with helming a starship, who would you be most like? Grab yourself some Romulan ale and answer a few questions and we'll tell you!
