What's the first thing out of Picard's mouth when Worf says 'collision course'?

Picard: "Suggestions?!"

Sorry, but WTF? Is he the Captain or not?
Actually the 1st thing out of his mouth was "Hail them", hoping they might be under power which the ENT-D was not. It didn't work & he had 30 seconds to find something that would. Entertaining a select few options wasn't really a terrible call, imho, one which put their fate in the inertia caused by random decompression, & the other by utilizing one of their tools to attempt to correct the problem. I can see why he'd initially go with the tractor beam. It seemed more reliable

It's stuff like that which allows you to watch decisions unfold, that is why I enjoy the command dynamic on TNG versus TOS
