And I knew that I would be taking a risk by not having Picard be the one to solve the problem and save the day by direct action (though he does make the final resolution possible with his "leap of faith").

I thought it was nice to have the Enterpise and Picard not be the ones to warp in and save the day for a change. So in my opinion you did just fine.
