* It's getting tiresome to watch the Picard do whatever he wants with the Enterprise on a whim without there ever being any ramifications for those actions from above.
As long as he keeps saving the day its kind of hard to prosecute him. especially if the people who would have to do so just had their asses pulled out of the fire by him as a result of said day saving.

Besides in a world where Janeway got promoted instead court-martialed Picard facing ramifications from above is kind of hypocritical.
But, like constantly raising people from the dead, it's an overused plot point. They can't figure out how to get the Enterprise involved without it coming off a Picard's personal jet to do with as he pleases?
