* The ''Enterprise'' gets stuck in a trap that drains the ship's power and blasts it with lethal radiation. After working for hours, Geordi says the only shot they have at getting out is to get a short push from the impulse engines and then use maneuvering thrusters to get past the asteroids around them. It seems that giving the computer maneuvering control ''might'' be the best way... but he doesn't buy it, and thinks a human pilot has a better chance. Picard agrees and ''takes the helm himself'', even using the gravity of a large asteroid to give them the last bit of momentum they need to get free (something the computer probably never would have been able to do).

** Picard gives his order, and the rest of the bridge crew coordinate their actions, communicating only with subtle facial expressions. They are all just that good.

* The scene where the Admiral tries to make people on the ''Enterprise'' obey his orders and outrank Picard and all of them stand against him.

** After she says "Whole generations of disposable people", she pauses and just takes a long, slow drink from her glass. In that moment, she shows that ''Picard'' knows she's made her point.

to:

* Riker interrogating a Yridian crook over what happened to Picard, and said crook tries to bargain with Riker to get a shuttle in exchange for his cooperation. Unfortunately, Riker is in the middle of a particularly lengthy RoaringRampageOfRevenge and ain't got no time for that - he [[NeckLift slams the poor bastard against the wall]] and lets him know he could turn him over ASAP for twelve counts of fraud and theft whenever he felt like it. Unless he felt like cooperating, that is, which the Yridian does post haste. When Riker is determined, he is a ''scary'' sumbitch.




to:

* Maybe not as {{Badass}} as Beverly Crusher's performance in "Descent Pt. II," but Data's performance as acting captain of the ''Enterprise'' is absolutely exceptional, from quickly picking up on Riker and Picard's deceptions, to being ''very'' firm with acting first officer Worf and his insubordination. Captain Data ''commands'' respect - and that should be no surprise to anyone who remembers "Redemption, Part II."

** Which led to a funny and awesome moment in one of the DVD extras where Brent Spiner recounts how some time later he happened to run into Hawking, and the first words out of his, err...computer...were "Where's my money?"

* Picard opposes the arrogant and [[ObstructiveBureaucrat oppressively legalistic]] Sheliak, who flog the treaty between them and the Federation and refuse to compromise on the matter of an unexpected colony that would take weeks to move off a planet the Sheliak want. By searching the treaty, Picard finds a way to outmaneuver them and makes them sweat. When he knows he's got the Sheliak on the ropes, he terminates communications and waits for them to call back. Once they start hailing, he stands around letting the hailing tone sound, then casually walks across the bridge, [[WhiteGloveTest checks the ''Enterprise'' commissioning plaque on the wall for dust]], and finally wanders back to the center of the bridge before putting them onscreen. The closest Picard has ever gotten to "You know what? ''Fuck you.''" in the entire series.
