I last saw the shows just about a month ago so it's more recent in my mind.

I agree that Ronny Cox is a great actor and supposedly a really nice guy in real life. Maybe he feels he has something to make up for since he is usually portraying jack-asses. I think Jellico did get a bad rap, less so for his command style than by the resistance he got to his changes. I did get annoyed by him bad-mouthing Riker so soon after taking over, and then there was the "Get rid of that fish," comment. Clearly, he was written as a putz, but I did give him full credit for the rescue of Picard. The character should have gotten more appreciation in the end.
