Whether to take the lead role on a major Hollywood television series isnt a difficult choice for most actors But in 1987 a wellrespected member of the British Royal Shakespeare Company considered it a dilemma Offered the role of Captain JeanLuc Picard on the Next Generation of the Star Trek TV series Patrick Stewart wrestled with his decision There happened to be one extreme ly distinguished British actor here in Los Angeles that week that I was offered it and I had dinner with Stewart recalled during a conversatioh at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills Ive known him for a good many years and he urged me to turn the offer down claiming that it would wreck my I think he was Stewart said humbly Only the most snobbish theater buff would disagree In its enormously suc cessful sevenyear run Star Trek The Next Generation reached heights that the original series which barely last ed three seasons only dreamed of Consistently rated as Americas No 1 I dont quite know where

acting muscles as he faces down his most fearsome enemy the Borg This race of cybernetically enhanced aliens is out to assimilate all life forms in the galaxy and only the Enterprise can prevent them from wip ing out humanity Sitting with Stewart its easy to see why he was considered Starship cap tain material He seems gentle and compassionate yet completely in con speech is clear and direct with a crisp British accent delivered in a rumbling baritone His movements are fluid His eyes are piercing And most famously he has that shiny bald head If Stewart were to begin shout ing commands you would follow them Identifying Stewart this closely with his trademark character may seem unfair but the press and the public arent the only ones who do it After inhabiting the role for the better part of a decade even the actor himself is guilty Its true to say that I dont quite know where Patrick Stewart ends and JeanLuc Picard leaves fessed So much of me went into the creating of the character There were even aspects of JeanLuc that as I increasingly came to admire him I decided that I wanted to adopt And it gets worse There was actually a moment when I was watching First Contact for the first time when 1 looked up at the screen and thought Hang on a moment thats me It was something that was so personal that wed put into the movie and Id forgotten just how it had gotten in there I heard my voice instead of JeanLuc Still when The Next Generation TV series ended in 1994 after 178 episodes Stewart for one was not unhappy I was ready before the series ended DRNCE American Legion

series as much as I could give I was tired and finding it increasingly hard to find something fresh I had always thought that that was a responsibility of ours that we should find always fresh But Stewart does miss his fellow actors After working gossiping and joking together for seven years attach ments form So he was happy to do the reunion movie for more than just the money Star Trek First Contact was direct ed by Jonathan Frakes who as Will Riker reports to Picard on the Enterprise but Stewart has no interest in directing any subsequent Next Generation movies Though he has directed
