David: I've been thinking we should explore the ways in which Ikard is similar to Picard.
Lea: Will Ikard and Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise?
David: Yeah. For example, they're both fearless leaders…
Lea: Well, Picard is a fearless leader whose crew would follow him into the depths of hell and who can do anything. Will is a fearless leader whose crew *might* follow him to Starbucks and who will find someone else to do anything.
David: Especially Ellie.
Lea: But Ellie's too clever for that. You know she's the one who's really in charge, whereas Picard answers only to the prime directive.
David: Jean-Luc Picard is bald…
Lea: …and gets all the ladies…
David: …whereas Will Ikard has wavy blonde hair but is fugly.
Lea: Definitely. And Picard boldly goes where no one has gone before, while Will Ikard boldly sends other people out where no one has blockwalked before.
David: Yep. Picard was once assimilated by the Borg… but Will Ikard is still fugly.
Lea: Hey, lay off the fugly. Actually, the Borg were named after a building where Will went to college.
David: So Will *is* a Borg.
Lea: Maybe.

P.S. We realize we've been a little harsh on poor Will, so here's a little something to his credit. Jean-Luc Picard is like 6 inches shorter than his co-star, Will Riker, while Ikard is at least a foot and a half taller than Ellie. So yeah, that's something.

Okay so... I don't think Will is fugly, but I do have better hair than he does.
