Sir Patrick Stewart has a suggestion for politicians: watch more “Star Trek” to become a better role model.
“I wish that politicians would spend more time watching ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ because unlike my predecessor, Captain James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard believed first and foremost in negotiation,” Stewart said. “He was a diplomat before he was a warrior — talk, talk, talk and keep on talking. And I think that would be a great message for the world to absorb because people don’t have to die to achieve a satisfactory solution to anything.” he added.
