Good point. I don't think that all ladies' men are alphas, but Kirk is a Captain as well, so he's got the leadership thing down. My only quibble would be that I tend to think of extreme alphas as rather humorless. Steve McGarrett and Joe Friday are completely humorless; I forget about Joe Mannix. But James Kirk has a very good sense of humor, which humanizes him in a way that seems a little off-alpha to me.
