Aside from being old and caucasian, Barry Morse bears absolutely no likeness to Sir Patrick Stewart. And if Morse had scored the role of Picard instead of Stewart, it's hard to tell, but it doesn't seem like he kept himself in top condition, like Stewart did. We probably would've had a Captain Picard who was more willing to sit out Away Missions and even more poncy with his tea at 4 O'clock and holodeck horseback rides in Pleasant Meadows ... I'm happy with what we got. Sir Patrick Stewart was the best choice.
