Just promote Picard to Commodore.
I think the rank of Commodore had been phased out by TNG due to a finding that the rank drove people insane.
Most people not familiar with military hierarchies have difficulty distinguishing between commander and commodore.
I didn't have any issue with that when I was five. Commander was the guy with two stripes and Commodore was the guy with a big fat stripe who, usually, was a douchebag, a moron or insane.
