Picard was a peacetime captain. His challenges more frequently involved diplomatic minutiae than open battle. It's difficult for a captain crew to distinguish themselves in peacetime, but it's worth noting that on more than one occasion he utterly failed to return fire on a hostile threat. He was, however, successful against greater threats than those faced by Kirk, and despite his occasional failure to meet threats, and the greatest tactical failures of his crew occurred in his absence.
