Check Out This ‘Star Trek: TNG’ Video Supercut Demonstrating The Famous ‘Picard Maneuver’

01.25.15 5 years ago 16 Comments

Star Trek: The Next Generation ran for seven seasons, for all of which there were alleged issues with the uniforms worn by the Enterprise crew. The result of this supposed problem was a certain shirt-tugging gesture, or “battle tactic,” performed by Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart). Called the “Picard Maneuver” by fans, YouTube user whysp80 decided to capture its essence with a video supercut.

During the third season, wardrobe did away with the spandex onesies the cast had begrudgingly gotten used to wearing. Not only did the cast complain about the revealing nature of the spandex, but Patrick Stewart’s chiropractor also requested that he avoid wearing tight clothes. Instead, they opted for two-piece outfits with separate pants and jackets. Be sure to keep an eye out for Riker’s solo and the shout-out to Data at the end.
