Authority : You only every have the authority that those under you choose to allow you
YATI : When Picard orders "Ales for everyone!", everyone responds with a cheer. Why is this? After all, it's not like anybody ever actually pays for anything in ten forward! Are just sucking up to the boss?

One of the indicators that Picard is acting unusually comes when he asks Beverly if she would like to dance, and she responds "I thought you didn't dance?" But in the movie "Insurrection", when Picard is expected to dance at a formal dinner Beverly states that "The Captain used to cut quite a rug!" So which is it?

So here's a question... what language is Esoqq speaking? I mean, I assume he is not speaking English. I assume he is speaking Chalnoth, or whatever the Chalnoth call their language, and that Picard understands him because of the universal translator built into his combadge... right? I ask because when he introduces himself he says "My given name is Esoqq. It means fighter." But if the translator is translating what he says, then why doesn't it translate his name? Why don't we hear "My given name is Fighter. It means fighter." For that matter, lots of human names have meanings. Why doesn't the UT translate ALL of them?

Great Moment : I love Picard's wooing and dumping of Beverly. The look on her face when he throws her out is hilarious!
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : Picard's drinking song is "Heart of Oak", written by David Garrick and Dr. William Boyce and first performed in 1770.


Picard finds himself trapped in a cell with some curious companions; but back on the Enterprise, his double wants to see how far he can push the crew before they break.
