Re: Picard qualified to command Enterprise?
What made Starfleet decide that a captain with one command that ended in relative failure should be given the honor of the command of the Federation flagship?
Picard came up with a brilliant tactic while fighting against the Ferengi. He was not responsible for the loss of the ship just like Kirk could not do anything besides blowing up the Enterprise in TSFS.
