Looks like it, doesn't it? It's such a moving moment, trekkies all over the world will be in tears at that one ;)
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

You apparently have never seen Patrick Stewart as the ruthlessly ambitious general Sejanus in I, Claudius. His portrayal was the epitome of the 'bureaucrat monster,' a general who expressed about as much emotion at torturing someone as a file clerk. Nor have you apparently seen Brazil, where Michael Palin's performance as a perfectly civil, bland, and thus terrifying government-sanctioned inquisitor was one of the highlights of the movie. The most compelling villains aren't those who laugh diabolically or launch insane plans to blow up planets or take over the world. The ones who consider the acts they commit to be a job responsibility or justified through some kind of twisted logic are much scarier. Eichmann was a truly horrific villain; Idi Amin was a vulgar imitation.
