Re: The OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Season 1 Discussion Thread

I know it can easily be interpreted that way, but to me Picard never came across as a pompous ass. He was just a very disciplined officer who could put his foot down really hard when he needed to, and who felt very passionately about justice and human progress and the like.

And even if Starfleet regulations often prevented him from interfering in a situation, that doesn't mean he couldn't vent about it and become righteously indignant, as anyone would. I never saw that as him being "preachy" or anything.
