Favorite Picard Inspirational Speeches.
In The Next Generation, Jean-Luc Picard is a captain, a diplomat, and an explorer, but he is also an inspiration to his crew, to many characters that we meet during the show and the movies, and to multiple generations of Star Trek fans. Picard's power and influence for good flows just as much from his words as from his actions.
