I’m especially pleased with how panel 2 came out. Ahh, the feels.

I notice that Picard and friends spend a lot less time than Kirk did fighting various gods, and far fewer aliens want to take control of the Enterprise D, or force the crew to spend “the rest of your lives here.”

Picard talks about how he’d sometimes give almost anything to command the Stargazer again. Presumably almost anything except giving up the Enterprise. The Ferrengi did give the Stargazer back to Picard after all, and it made it all the way to the end of the episode. I went back and checked (just to be sure, didn’t watch the episode because, you know, season 1.)
