With a voice like Stewart's, well, you have to write long speeches for him. I swear to God the way that man speaks is pure music.
Agreed. Majestic as well.
There was a time when I was stubbornly keeping TOS as my favorite Star Trek series. But over time, I just felt like the 3 seasons were so limiting. TNG has built up so much more. And Stewart's performance is the most compelling aspect of it all.
