Re: Is Picard a hypocrite?
Not really. Sure, he feels younger and he falls in love with Anij and nobody would deny that playing the hero for her was also a motivation for him. But it wasn't his main motivation.
This is not Homer where people do all kind of crazy things because of a woman, this is Trek.
We will have to leave it at 'agree to disagree' on Picard's motivations.
