Re: just an update---i grew up seeing this man on most late night shows during the eighties--90 ies

I grew up watching Captain Picard every week. A character with dignified presence. An example of morality, eloquence, and refinement. (Even though it was sometimes hard to figure out what he was saying with that outrageous French accent.)

 

Now I see him being shuffled around on screen as the target of constant disrespect, abuse, and humiliation. A vandalized legacy.

 

Not dead. Not dying. Not decaying mental faculties. But it is still a terrible fate. As if he is happy to take a paycheque to let a bunch of juvenile punks bulldoze over years of his life's work.

Not a lot of money in legacies. Nor royalties/residuals. Gotta pay the bills/keep up with ones chosen lifestyle.

I agree, starving artists gotta hustle pay bills like everyone else. Even when they're retired octogenarians with only the lowest of noble titles and a bank balance falling dangerously close to around $70M.

 

I guess Sir Captain Picard is really hungry now that those decades-old royalties have expired or trickled to nothing. But it still saddens me to see a once-dignified personage reduced to a doddering old boat anchor on screen just to make some fresh new no-talents look good in comparison.
