Well in that case, it was Picard fulfilling his oath of protecting the Earth (and the Federation) from hostile entities. I think preemptively via time travel preventing First Contact by assimilating the Earth would be considered a hostile act. Somehow I don't think the Prime Directive applies in a situation like that. The Prime Directive is meant to make the Federation a neutral government, not a peacenik pacific government.
