Apologies for the poor grammar, Bill! Beneath my usual standards.

Itís pointing out how the character had developed and how that point of development leads to how the character is presented in PICARD and how Picard is not the static character that you suggest. Thatís not special pleading at all.
------------------
The reason I say it is special pleading is that we are given 178 episodes of TNG that inform us about the character of Picard. You then cite joining his senior crew for a game of poker in the final episode as a justification for ignoring the core tenets from the preceding episodes.

I'm not necessarily saying that Picard is static, but take, for example, what we are told in the episode Tapestry. Q lets Picard re-do an encounter from his youth. The encounter was a bar brawl that he regrets, in which he was stabbed through the heart. The event explains why Picard has grown to be circumspect, how he grew to be such a thoughtful and disciplined captain.

But in Star Trek: Picard, we have Picard rashly walking into the no human zone and sparking a violent encounter with a group of Romulans. This seems inconsistent. A game of poker with his senior crew in the final scene of the final episode seems in no way to provide a justification for this.

Luckily, no one is suggesting that.

While we're at it, I did not say this either.

You aren't mistaken, he was returned in VOY "Child's Play" but it was later
revealed his parents had genetically altered him to be a weapon against the
Borg and he ended up returning to Voyager afterward.

Guess I need to watch Child's Play. I have a tendency to skip a lot of Voyagers
episodes the show itself balances nice against DS9 but it's wildly inconsistent.
Icheb to me was Voyagers' Wesley Crusher boy genius type.
