Re: "Tapestry"

Picard's religion or lack of religion has never really been stated in the series. He clearly does not ritually practice religion, and he clearly believes in a scientific explanation for the natural world, but it's hinted at in indirect ways he believes in fate and that there is a soul that exists separate from the body.

Picard's never really been all that Atheistic, or maybe he became more religious minded as the series went on.

I mean, in "Generations" his fantasy involved having a Merry Christmas with his family.
That's a good point although I suppose one could celebrate the giving gifts part while still being an atheist.


Christmas was originally a Pagan festival to brighten up the cold and lonely mid-winter. Catholicism hijacked it and stuck the birth of Jesus onto it to pacify the Pagan hordes. It is quite possible that Picard was celebrating Christmas as the Pagans did. I do (lights, big feast, family time etc).

This chick definitely cemented Sir (!) Patrick Stewart's expectation of having more scenes like these in TNG, with assorted Babes of the Week ... and dare I say it? Whether she meant to, or not, I think she turned him on.

Re: "Tapestry"

To me it has to be Q's doing.

What disturbs me about this episode is Riker/Troi's reaction to alternate Picard saying he wanted to move up in the world.

He does go on quite an atheistic rant against "superstition, ignorance and fear" in Who Watches the Watchers?
