Picard was also the first who accurately measured the length of a degree of a meridian (longitude line) and from that result estimated the size of the Earth.

 The Top Infinite Reasons Kirk Is Better Than Picard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Picard's crew is so incompetant that in TNG episode "Schisms" Riker and several other crew members are abducted and at the end of the episode, they still haven't found a way to ensure those abductions won't occur again.
Picard's ENTIRE crew, however, seems to be a group of sanitation-engineers, judging from the appearance of their ugly, odd-looking jumpsuits.
Picard's entire crew is so weak-minded that they can be involuntarily dominated by Sarek's simple bad mood and thrown into chaos (fortunately while the ship wasn't under attack); in "Journey to Babel," Sarek is afflicted with fatal heart-trouble and Kirk's crew doesn't bat an eyelash, and even defeats a ruthless enemy.

Study the origin of the solar variability and its influence on the climate of the Earth.
PICARD is an investigation dedicated to the simultaneous measurement of the absolute total and spectral solar irradiance, the diameter and solar shape, and to the Sun's interior probing by the helioseismology method.
These measurements are especially important as they were made during a period when the solar activity was minimum characterized by a sun nearly without sunspots between 1645 and 1710.
