Hmmm this is a hard one..I don't like Earl gray.

If Picard were educated i think he would understand why it would be better getting advice from professional counsel than the girl at the bar.
I admit that the Picard in Nemesis was not the same Picard that we all know and love (albeit less than we love Kirk).
I didn't know the transporter wasn't working, i must have been asleep by that part of the film.
How is this then. Picard knew full well that if captured by the borge and assimilated you could still be brought back. Yet when one of his crew gets taken by the borg in First Contact he shoots the poor guy, dead.
I know in my heart that Kirk would not have done that and i think that if you searched the deep recess of your own heart... you know that too.
Captain Kirk... what a guy.

That is a valid point, but keep in mind Picard shot that crewman because he thought he was saving him from becoming Borg.

As I've said in the past...

Kirk and Picard both faced with the Borg Queen and a Borg Cube...

While Picard stands on his Bridge and tries to find a diplomatic solution to the situation, Kirk would beam over to the Borg ship, and while he seduces the Borg Queen, Spock hacks the Borg Mainframe and gives Scotty the information to shut down the cube's defenses, Kirk gets beamed out just as the Enterprise launches photon torpedoes to destroy the cube.

I think that's ridiculous....
I don't know what Kirk would really do when faced with the Borg...but I think he'd do better than archer.

Ridiculous?

I'm open to your take on it...

He would talk to a drone... "In every revolution there is one man with a vision."
