Dear Dayton, The “who would win in a fight” question has been asked many times before. Star Trek versus Star Wars. Hal versus Commander Adama. Lock boxes versus our wallets. In any case, the question is a bit tired. Instead, I present to you the new and improved version, “Who would win in an argument?” That’s right; Star Trek has always been about solving problems with words as well as phasers, lasers, disruptors, bat’leths, or muskets. Don’t ask me about the muskets; I don’t understand it, either. Back on topic, the first pairing I present to you is (drum roll
Dear Dayton: On last week’s show, G&T discussed the topic of the Assimilation2 comics and crossovers, and suggesting numerous ideas for crossovers they would like to see.

Dear Dayton, Recently, Trekdom celebrated one of their biggest holidays of the year, First Contact Day.

Dear Dayton: If you were given the chance to script doctor Star Trek V, can you tell us what changes you would make? Also, if you could for Star Trek: Nemesis, what would you do to improve it?

Question: Dear Dayton: The G and T Show has discussed all the captains in Star Trek (including the great Edward Jellico!!!) at length. How would you rank each and what are their greatest strength and weakness? How would you rate each command team as well?
