I have to say I don't agree with the general feeling that Picard shouldn't be in action scenes. You've got a guy whose hobby is violent detective novels on the holodeck, a guy who ran track and other sports at the academy. And someone who took on a bunch of guys when he got stabbed through the heart. So where does this idea come from that he's just an old man that can't fight? I'm not saying he should be getting in fights all the time but I think saying "kirk = fighter, picard = diplomat" is a disservice to both characters.
