Sir Patrick Stewart, OBE (born 13 July 1940) is an English film, television and stage actor, who has had a distinguished career on stage and screen. He is most widely known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and its successor films, as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series, and for his prolific stage roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

In 1993, TV Guide named him the best dramatic television actor of the 1980s,[1] and television's sexiest man in the previous year.[2][3]

Early life

Patrick Stewart[4] was born on 13 July 1940[5] in Mirfield,[6] in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. He is the son of Gladys (née Barrowclough), a weaver and textile worker, and Alfred Stewart, a Regimental Sergeant Major in the British Army. He has two older brothers, Geoffrey (b. 1925) and Trevor (b. 1935).[7][8]

Stewart grew up in a poor household with domestic violence from his father, an experience which influenced his later political and ideological beliefs.[9] Stewart's father served with the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry and was Regimental Sergeant Major of the 2nd Battalion, Parachute Regiment during the Second World War, having previously worked as a general labourer and as a postman.[10] As a result of his wartime experience during the Dunkirk evacuation, his father suffered from what was then known as shell shock (post-traumatic stress disorder). In a 2008 interview, Stewart said, "My father was a very potent individual, a very powerful man who got what he wanted. It was said that when he strode onto the parade ground, birds stopped singing. It was many, many years before I realized how my father inserted himself into my work. I've grown a moustache for Macbeth. My father didn't have one, but when I looked in the mirror just before I went on stage I saw my father's face staring straight back at me."[11]

I believed that no woman would ever be interested in me again. I prepared myself for the reality that a large part of my life was over.

Stewart attended Crowlees Church of England Junior and Infants School.[13] He attributes his acting career to an English teacher named Cecil Dormand who "put a copy of Shakespeare in my hand [and] said, 'Now get up on your feet and perform'".

That particular mission wasn't dangerous.

Because if you send the unimportant ones, they'll probably die.

>It's literally in their job description to seek out new life
>They're the most experienced on the ship, therefore least likely to die, and most likely to know how to handle the situation
>The aliens are gonna think humans are total pussies if their captains send underlings in to die

Why not?

They were the main focus of the show, there wouldn't be much point of send expendables on a mission when all they are really going to do is report back to the ship and/or die.

So are you saying the better and more experienced you are the more you should mess about on the bridge.
