Submission + - Senator Ted Cruz believes that Kirk is a Republican while Picard is a Democrat (nytimes.com) 1

McGruber writes: Republican presidential candidate and Trekker Ted Cruz claimed in an interview with The New York Times Magazine that "It is quite likely that Kirk is a Republican and Picard is a Democrat.”

Cruz also stated a strong preference for Kirk: "Let me do a little psychoanalysis. If you look at ‘‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’’ it basically split James T. Kirk into two people. Picard was Kirk’s rational side, and William Riker was his passionate side. I prefer a complete captain. To be effective, you need both heart and mind."

William Shanter responded via Twitter: "Star Trek wasn't political. I'm not political; I can't even vote in the US. So to put a geocentric label on interstellar characters is silly"
