Whenever I think about Archer attempting to string words together, I'm reminded about him bitching about aliens being unhappy that his dog pissed on their sacred trees, and threatening to piss on them himself.

Re: I miss Picard's speeches!

I remember having a little epiphany when they did a scene of Archer chewing out Reed in his ready room. I realized that the scene must have been written with Picard and Worf in mind. It would have been electrifying if Stewart and Dorn had done it. In the hands of Bakula and Keating, it was a whining contest.

I love Picard's speeches. Add the fact that Stewart had a very good British accent.
Ooooo! You almost make that sound as if he's putting it on! Blasphemy!
No, well, I should have said 'distinct'. Say what you want about us, but no one can deny that we have some of the best accents in the World.

Watching TNG Season 5 on Blu-ray reminded me once again just how good Patrick Stewart was in the role.

Re: I miss Picard's speeches!

Another overlooked one in an otherwise awful episode - Picard's "there is no justice if laws are absolute" speech in Justice.

Re: I miss Picard's speeches!

I just rewatched Tapestry this afternoon, and while it isn't really a full-on speech, the emotional depth & real meaning Patrick Stewart puts into these scenes is superb. The fact that the message is so true anyway only adds to the depth:



I think I like his final conversation with Riker even more as it reveals that he really has changed, and come to terms with his own identity, but I couldn't find that online. A transcript will have to do:

PICARD: I still don't know what to make of it. Was it a dream? Was it one of Q's elaborate tricks?
RIKER: A lot of people near death have talked about strange experiences, but I've never heard one so detailed.
PICARD: And, you know, there's still a part of me that cannot accept that Q would give me a second chance, or that he would demonstrate so much compassion. And if it was Q, I owe him a debt of gratitude.
RIKER: In what sense? It sounds like he put you through hell.
PICARD: There are many parts of my youth that I'm not proud of. There were loose threads, untidy parts of me that I would like to remove. But when I pulled on one of those threads it unraveled the tapestry of my life.
RIKER: I was just trying to imagine a hell-bent for leather young officer insulting a Nausicaan twice his size. I wish I'd had a chance to know that Jean-Luc Picard.
PICARD: Oh, well, to tell the truth, that wasn't the first run-in I'd had with a couple of surly Nausicaans.
RIKER: Really?
PICARD: Oh, yes. During my sophomore year, I was assigned to training on Morikin Seven. Well, there was a Nausicaan outpost on one of the outlying asteroids, and one day...

AFAIK it was Michael Piller, who often wrote the Picard speeches in a script.

Re: I miss Picard's speeches!

I liked his speeches to Tomalak, in both The Enemy and The Defector. Stewart knew how to deliver a hell of a speech, which made the character all the more awesome.
