You better wise up and listen to Captain Picard! shouts young Wesley Crusher.  But you know, he’s right.  The truth is that Picard is probably the best manager/decision maker I’ve ever seen.  If I were trapped on a desert planet, I’d want to be with him.  Even if a boulder landed on his head and he was laying there in a delirious stupor.  Wes off to the Academy?  Something tells me he’ll be back.
