Sorry, but this is first-season Picard being a douche. He exhibits the same elitist attitude in "The Neutral Zone".

God forbid a character have flaws and act human, because thinking yourself superior to people from 400 years in the past is a totally human thing and it's something a 21st century person would think of stuff from the 17th Century.
