The Dominion would have surrendered just to avoid hearing one of Picard's overbearing speeches.

First season Picard would have beat them to it, by surrendering first.

Kirk would have seduced the Female Changeling and stopped the war.

Picard would have been unwilling to put aside his moral code to get the job done and have failed.

Janeway would have been a flakey psycho that ends up initiating a Ferengi holocaust because she had period pains.

Bakula would have helped Weyoun realise his potential as a baseball player. He then leaps to his next body, hoping it'll be that last leap home...

Abramsverse Kirk would have been too blinded by lens flare and end up crashing the Defiant in to Bajor as a result.

Sinclair would have given a goofy smile, said some pseudo-Minbari wisdom and called everyone, "Old friend!"

Sheridan would have given a ten minute "My father always told me..." speech before loading the Defiant with nukes and slamming it into the Great Link.

Ivanova would have growled that she's Russian.

Garibaldi would have gotten shit-faced and watched Daffy Duck.

Did I miss something?

What was that whole Riker non sequitur at the beginning all about?

I think Picard is pissed at Riker because he tried to mutiny in one of the earlier recuts. You really gotta watch those in order to get everything.

It may have been faster, but Picard probably would have had to have gone native with the JemHadar first.

Picard would still be in conference with the senior staff, trying to decide what action to take. Then, after assembling a fleet, they all would have been neutralized by the Breen's energy draining weapon.

Yep. In the clips immediately before #83, Riker staged a coup and left Picard on the saucer section, which then collided with a planet. Unfortunately for Riker, Picard met the Morgan Freeman incarnation of God in the afterlife and was given all his powers. :rommie:

I don't think Picard would have surrendered or anything like that. But, he is a peacetime captain, not a wartime captain, and he would have been willing to make more concessions in order to prevent a war, and the Dominion would have taken advantage of that.

But then again, if Sisko were commanding the Enterprise they would have gone to war with the Romulans in The Enemy or The Defector. And Picard might have been able to calm down the Klingons in Way of the Warrior.
