    Mr. Stewart is a class act, A+ actor and that's why he hit it out of the park. Add to his skills and craftsmanship his lean, chisled features and you have instant leader dude. No brainer. I remember him from I Clavdivs before TNG; watched it with my Dad a few years before 1987. Video tape, all 13 eps from the library. He played maximus? or something.

    This pretty much sums it up. Simply the best actor to ever be associated with the Star Trek franchise. :techman:

    He knew how to play the role and seldom, if ever, overacted.

    Because he took it seriously from the get go. He didn't camp it up or play to either irony or satire. He played it for real.

    For the young (as I was) and those young of heart, he played a role that was inspiring.
