Re: Picard qualified to command Enterprise?

The original premise for TNG was that the Enterprise-D was going to be out on the edge of known space for 2 decades and would rarely have contact with Starfleet. I'm guessing that in the past other starships were sent out on long deep space voyages and Stargazer was one. So it's not really some kind of career staller to be on a long deep space voyage.

My theory on Picard's whereabouts in the year between the Stargazer and th ENT-D is that he was working for Starfleet Intelligence and that's why there's never been any dialog aboutt hose missing years...it's classified.
