Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?
I would love to spend an entire day speaking with Captain Jean-Luc Picard. I would ask him about his childhood in France, how was his relationship with his parents, what made him decide to join Star Fleet. If he had ever imagined to do anything else?
During all the years that I have watched Star Trek New Generation, I have seen the Captain listen to the Opera, play some instruments, go to the Holodeck and pretend to be a detective in the 1940's era so that would lead me to believe that Captain Picard may have entertained a future in the arts at some point and if this were true, what changed his mind and led him to change course and go to Star Fleet instead.
Maybe a day wouldn't be enough, a week perhaps, a long enough time so that I could just listen to that voice. His voice is what got me from day one and then his character traits; the nobility, the courage, the forthrightness, the integrity, the deep respect for others, the loyalty and the compassion, those qualities kept me coming back for more.
I love Captain Jean Luc Picard.
