Imperfections like everyone has.
All of that just makes him a better character. Like a real person. Imperfections like everyone has.
Jellico acted like a big baby, didn't want to listen to anyone but himself.
Well, can you back up this statement?
I spent all f my time with two of my older brothers.
I don't know how men can stand it.
If I was a man, I think I'd have to be gay.
Women put up with just as much bull$hit from men as men do from women, and that includes moodiness. How many men have beat their women one minute and the next are apologizing profusely to them? When it comes to acting irrationally, no gender has a monopoly.
When your first officer tells you that the department heads say there will be significant personnel problems by going to four shifts, and you don't listen, then you're probably a sucky captain. Notice no one was sad to see him go.
As for the book, it's symbolism.
Jellico didn't want to hear it. I guess having, "significant personnel problems" during a time of crisis is just fine with him. What an idiot! A good captain listens to the concerns of his staff, Jellico couldn't be bothered, and it makes sense that no one was sad to see him go.
Picard left the book as symbolism, saying that he would return.
Sure Wylde, all those department heads and Riker were just trying to make life hard for Jellico. Geordi was lying when he said his staff would have to work around the clock. Because that's what department heads assigned to the Federation's flag ship would do, right?
Really, it doesn't make sense that a Jellico could even rise up in the ranks with such a crappy attitude. None of the other Trek captains were anything like him, and for good reason.
I guess you didn't notice the look on Picard's face when Jellico handed him the book. The symbolism is there. Leaving the book behind was a way of assuring himself that he'd be back. Don't presume that you know how all men think.
Wylde, so all the department heads were just lazy? How does that make sense? You don't get to be a department head on the Federation's flagship by being lazy.
Leaving his book behind was Picard's symbol of hope.
The mission would not have been lost had they stayed with three shifts.
Don't call me, "sweetheart." It just reinforces the idea that you're a sexist jerk.
Are you saying police officers are like Jellico? I somehow doubt that. I don't come into contact with police officers very often, but the last one who helped me, recovered a wandering resident twice, was a nice guy, and I appreciated his service.
Basically all their complaints boiled down to "we can't do that because it would require us to work harder/longer". That's lazy no matter what external excuses you use.
"We shouldn't make unnecessary changes that would cause significant personnel problems, especially while in a time of crisis."
BTW, why would Picard have a bunch of lazy people for department heads?
