The best spaceship captains are Canadians

As I’ve long said, the best spaceship captains are Canadians: Leslie Nielsen (J.J. Adams, Forbidden Planet), William Shatner (James T. Kirk, ST:TOS), Lorne Greene (Adama, the original Battlestar Galactica), and Douglas Rain (HAL 9000, effectively in charge of Discovery in 2001) — not to mention Keith Lansing in my novel Starplex. ;)

Now we can add to that list Bruce Greenwood, who plays Captain Christopher Pike in the 2009 movie version of Star Trek. He was born in Noranda, Quebec, in 1956, and studied philosophy and economics at the University of British Columbia.
