10Picard: He Doesn’t Rely On Luck Alone
In many situations, Kirk relies on sheer luck alone. He sees danger, heads straight for it, and miraculously manages to come out alive due to a fortunate coincidence that happened to save him from being killed. Picard, meanwhile, is much more level-headed than that. When he’s faced with a potentially
hazardous situation, he weighs up his options. He considers the pros and cons. Will the lives they can save outweigh the lives they have to risk? Picard has never found himself in a situation where he relies entirely on luck. He’ll sometimes catch a lucky break, but he also had a backup plan.
