Re: "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot." Did Picard really need to say it?

Picard is precise and commanding. He has need for no courtesy towards any simple food slot!

What he wants: Tea.
What kind he wants: Earl Grey.
How he wants it: Hot.

"So shall it be written, so shall it be done. Et cetera, et cetera..."

(Oops, wrong bald guy...)

But it's also still possible TPTB might have even briefly considered 'presets' akin to radio presets of the time, and just as quickly discarded them for precise and commanding.
