Re: Is Picard a hypocrite?

What Insurrection lacked was any real danger to our crew. The story pits pretty white people against a severe looking, elderly Admiral and a group of unfortunate looking people. Make Picard choose between Geordi or Beverly laying in sick bay dying and only extracted meta-phasics can save them, then you'd have a far more interesting movie and a real moral conundrum for Picard.
There has never been a Trek movie with a real moral conundrum, it has always been good guys against bad guys.

As stands the only thing driving Picard's actions is the desire to get in Anij's bloomers.
Nonsense, not even Kirk on his most horny day would quit Starfleet because he wants to get laid. Picard fights against the bad guys like any movie hero.
