Captain of the Enteprise

The fact is all of those years in Royal Shakespeare Company -- playing all those kings, emperors, princes and tragic heroes -- were nothing but preparation for sitting in the captain's chair of the Enterprise.

--Sir Patrick Stewart

  2. I think that's because the Enterprise captain is best portrayed by someone who overacts.....and nothing teaches overacting as well as doing Shakespeare.

  3. Heh. That's more of William Shatner, I think.
