Re: Would Picard have thought Worf would have made a "hell of a Captai
Worf was too hot-headed to be a Federation captain. Ignoring the Dominion War and how it changed the "tone" of the Federation and Trek (one of my many problems with DS9) Worf would not have been a good fit to command a starship on a mission to explore space and make peaceful contact with new civilizations. Nor would he be good to negotiate treaties or find diplomatic solutions to problems. Worf would have been a terrible Starfleet captain. He would've started a war on his first mission in command. Or he'd be too fearful and antsy of unknown to take the risks needed to truly be an explorer.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
