O Captain, My Captain by TravisTheGeek O Captain, My Captain by TravisTheGeek
This was a really fun one to do. It all started when I was re-watching Babylon 5 and I got to thinking about how cool it would be to see it cross over with other sci-fi movies/shows. That idea built up in my mind until I came up with this, my tribute to some of my favorite sci-fi captains. (Yes, I know a few of them aren't technically captains, but they're all associated with certain ships, and I liked the title, so I went with it. :))

The line-up (and their ships):
Back Row (L-R): Zaphod Beeblebrox (Heart of Gold), Turanga Leela (Planet Express ship)
Middle Row: Michael J Nelson (the Satellite of Love), John Sheridan (Babylon 5), John Crichton (Moya), the Doctor (the TARDIS)
Front Row: William Adama (Galactica), Jean-Luc Picard (Enterprise), Han Solo (Millennium Falcon), Malcolm Reynolds (Serenity).

Again, I know a few of these are a stretch, but it was all for fun. Hope you like it too.

He was traveling around the Australian outback doing pyrotechnics for the band "Man or Astro-Man?", but now I believe he's working as a manager at a Hot Fish Shop in Osseo, Minnesota.

Seriously, whenever I do these big, multi-media mash-ups, I generally try to avoid doubling up on any one property. I already had MST3K represented by way of Mike, who was always more of my host. (I first discovered the show right about the time that Joel was leaving.)

Oh. I always liked Mike better, but Joel came first.

Wonderful! I am happy to see John Sheridan and John Crichton, two of my favorite captains of all time! Interesting how there's only 1 woman captain, but Leela definitely deserved to be in the picture!

That's okay. There are a few somewhat obscure ones in there. Admittedly, there are a few I don't know quite as well as others.

That's great! :P THough IMHO, you should've included Kirk, Janeway, Sisko... I'll let Captain Jack Harkness' absence go since he's technically a Captain without a ship, and all those you listed are captains WITH ships (though the Doctor is a stretch - his relationship to the TARDIS is less "Captain" and more "old married couple" :P ).

Yeah, it was tough deciding at certain points who to include and who to leave out. I tried to keep it to one character per franchise, so I had to pick just one from Star Trek. One of the more difficult decisions was if I should do Kirk or Picard. Kirk is arguably the more iconic of the two, but Picard is the captain I grew up watching and is a personal favorite, so I finally settled on him. Same thing with Joel vs. Mike for the MST3K spot. Ultimately, this ended up being a lot more about my own personal favorites then a real 'best of'. If I was a little more ambitious, though, there are a bunch of characters that I would have liked to include. I ALMOST broke my 'one per franchise' rule to include Zapp Brannigan, but I held myself to my promise.

Perhaps I'll do a sequel of sorts some day to include some of the alt choices.

Alternates would be awesome. I grew up with the original Capt. Kirk from the 60's and LOVED HIM & THE SHOW! Great memorial!

Hehe, all my favorites. I have to admit, though, I almost forgot to include Zaphod. I had a rough sketch all done and just about ready to start the final lines when I saw my copy of Hitchhikers on the shelf and knew I had to go back and redo it and work him in.

lol, I know. I actually considered using Gypsy instead since she kinda runs everything, but I figured Mike was more of the main figurehead. But, yeah, he's probably the biggest stretch in terms of being a "captain".

Wicked awesome. I'm a bit alarmed at the fact that I recognized almost all of them. Mal, Leela, and Mike from MST3K look especially good. Brilliant idea, and equally brilliant in its execution.
