Re: Would Picard have thought Worf would have made a "hell of a Captai

He didn't directly let millions die because of what happened in Change of Heart.

The informative had information. That information could have ended the war sooner, which could have saved millions of lives.

It's not like there were two buttons, one that said "Save Jadzia" and the other that said "Save millions of people." Semantics, perhaps, but just wanted to clarify.

Had it been a TNG episode, he would have found a way to complete the mission and save Jadzia.

I agree with the other who have said it, Worf makes too many emotional and impulsive decisions to be a Captain. Not that that's a bad thing, I think it's what makes his character so interesting.

Well, we all presumably think Sisko was at least a somewhat good captain right? He admits he'd have made the same choice Worf did in Change of Heart so using that example against Worf's fitness for the chair seems unfair.

It was his wife. What more is there to say?

I have to disagree with you all. I do think Picard would tell Worf that he would make a good captain if only to encourage his growth away from Klingon aggression and towards Federation diplomacy.
