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.
Out of hope.
