The deeply moral, highly logical, and hugely intelligent Captain Jean-Luc Picard was a master of diplomacy and debate, and a terrific delegator of authority. He was brave, loyal, and intensely private. He could be inscrutable at times, but cared deeply for the people close to him, including his crew. He never hesitated in risking his own well-being where the safety of others was concerned and believed deeply in the Starfleet mission of exploration.
