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.

Regarding his becoming bald as a teenager[12]

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.

The aliens might not know about how red shirts work and kill them, which would mean loosing those 4 chief officers and second in command. Which is a pretty big deal. Wouldn't it make more sense for them to have a team of specialists who's job it is to make face to face contact? Sending in high ranking officers is noble but tactically unsound.

totally agree and it is in fact the way it would actually be done.

High ranking officers =/= worthless politicians at least until they're admirals . They ARE the specialists who make face to face combat.

hmm well my military background tells me that
1. the most experience still die just as easy when **** starts blowing up
2. when you lose enough of your top officers, things go to hell pretty damn fast
3. sending your top medical doctor into a dangerous zone is never ever ever a good idea...that's what EMT's are for.
4. oh and sending it a piece of experimental technology that cannot be replaced (ie data) is probably bad idea as well.

I love Trek but let's be real, it's a show that has main charcters which is why they are there, not because some writer figured out all the stuff you said...or that any of that makes logical sense.

1. That's why the send people who are good at keeping things FROM blowing up
2. Good thing they rarely lose people
3. She's there for research most of the time. I agree a bit though, she's really annoying and doesn't belong in most of the episodes she stars in
4. They had an episode about they. They decided that Data was sentient and therefore entitled to make his own choices. His choice was to be a Starfleet officer, with everything that entails. It's actually one of my favorite episodes.

first off I have seen every sing STNG epsidoe many many times....yes Data is sentient but that still does not mean you send in a one of a kind life form into a place that may be hostile.

but let me state this again because this is why they are together, not because it makes sense, because it makes ZERO sense to anyone with a military background but because it is a 43 minute long show with main characters that each need screen time...

end of case.

Wait, so you're saying that TV isn't real life?
And in a couple hundred years if we encounter alien cultures and develop FTL space travel it might not jive with the experience of some podunk twenty first century foot soldier?

LOL you're the one arguing how a team of 4 cheif officers and the XO landing together is realistic...I've been pointing that you have in fact been taking this **** way too literal and as it it somehow resembles real life.

btw, WARP, not FTL is possible and very likely so in less than 30 years. FTL will never be possible...research the difference and why.

Still, their reduced likelihood of being a casualty is not worth the risk of losing half the bridge's personnel.

Obviously it's a TV show but I'll indulge in some autism for a moment...

In reality there would be highly trained combat personnel who are equipped and trained to deal with these specific scenarios. Expertise in xenolinguistics, highly trained in ground combat and general infantry skills. This is like sending a fleet admiral to storm a beach. He is no better at it than his troops who are trained specifically for it.

The Enterprise is not a warship, it's a research vessel.
Those highly trained combat personnel ARE the bridge officers, as well as the security team to a lesser extent. Any one with the rank of lieutenant commander (I think that's right) or above is supposed to be able to take over in case their ranking officer is killed or incapacitated - this also goes for a combat, diplomatic or even first contact situation. The main cast members are NOT the only crew members ready to do this. If you've watched the show you'd know there is a night crew that runs the bridge.
The show makes it look like every mission is led by Riker leading the highest ranking officers into precarious situations, but the show only consists of the interesting missions.
The Enterprise D holds a little over a thousand people, most of which are civilians - that should give you an idea of just how little they expect it to go into combat zones.
If you want to know how Starfleet operates operationally innaspace, you should learn about the Defiant, featured in DS9: That thing was so loaded down by engines and quantum torpedoes it nearly shook itself apart in test flights where they used the warp drive. Also, it had a cloaking device.

Research vessels still carry an armed crew.

I love Star Trek and don't take this in an offensive way. I'm just saying, if it were real, I'd expect that.

I love Picard

true and yet in nearly every epsidoe they get shot at, kidnapped, knocked into a coma, put on trail by any number of alien lifeforms or their ship gets shot twice, disabling shield and weapons and for some reason blowing up electronic panels on the bridge...

seems to me they need to reassess how they carry out missions.

For all the people they've lost in seven years, they're not doing too bad.

The Enterprise in TNG is essentially a travelling embassy/science lab for the Federation and Earth. I don't know if you've noticed, but our embassies seem to go through a lot worse than anything the Enterprise ever encountered.

well let's see, I have every episode of STNG, watched them many many times and am well aware of the mission statement of the Galaxy Class ship. The ship is routinely attacked, the crew members are routinely attacked and again, they survive because they are main characters, they are always together because they are main characters that need screen time and there is no evidence to support the idea that we are seeing only the interesting missions. That is purely supposition on your part.
oh and the Enterprise D was blowing up and destroyed...pretty bad I'd say.

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.
