When attacked by the Borg they did just fine.

We have Crusher to thank for that. Without her, I think we know what would have happened.
Picard should've been busted down to Ten-Forward dishwasher for leaving a capital ship in the command of the Chief Medical Officer during what could be a crisis situation. Either Picard should have stayed aboard or left Riker in command.
Oh, absolutely. On a ship with such a large crew there just has to be someone better qualified to take care of the ship than the doctor! I mean, there must be some sort of watch officers aboard, that take over when the main bridge crew goes off duty. They donīt work 24h shifts, do they?
