Yes, it could have been better if it would have been Riker on Enterprise-E before departure and not The Pegasus episode
I thought it would have added to the storyline, if Riker (or Deanna) were to have mentioned that Riker had used this particular holodeck program many times through the years to help himself figure out ethical personal problems.
It would be easy to see Picard one day retire from Starfleet, go into politics and eventually become President. But ARCHER
? Why, because he has a calm speaking voice?
