Was Bok's plan to force Enterprise to destroy Stargazer and kill Picard in the process? Also, was the Enterprise in any real danger? We've seen the Big-E take it's share of punches from other ships (Romulan, Cardassian, Tamarian, Husnok, Borg, etc...) presumably with more firepower than what the Stargazer could muster. Seems to me, worst-case scenario, Riker could have let Picard take a few shots at the Enterprise, then disable Stargazers weapons and shields and beam Picard back. I suppose there's a risk that Picard may have been killed, but the Enterprise disabled other ships successfully in other episodes without loss of life.
Yeah I think Bok was probably assuming that the Stargazer would get destroyed in the battle, and then-- thanks to the altered ships logs, the crazy behavior, and the attack on the Enterprise-- Picard record and reputation would be forever tarnished with Starfleet.
