Famous Fictional Archaeologists: Jean-Luc Picard


Born: July 13, 2305
Education: Starfleet Academy
Specialty: The Kurlan civilization, just about everything else?
Likes: Earl Grey Tea, Beverly Crusher
Dislikes: The Borg, children

Picard became interested in archaeology during his years at Starfleet Academy, where he learned the subject under Professor Richard Galen.


Although talented, he decided to remain in Starfleet instead of pursuing a scholarly career. His skill is shown by his ability to precisely date a Kurlan naiskos thirty years after his schoolwork. Also, while archaeologists of our day struggle to master the archaeological record from one small part of our planet, Picard has ready familiarity with the archaeology of multiple worlds, such as Risa, where he was able to discover the Tox Uthat, a legendary weapon sought for millennia, after a few hours digging around an old cave with a single assistant
and two shovels (granted, he had the notes of another archaologist to work with). Even as a starship captain, he is the keynote speaker to the Federation Archaeology Council (hosted on his ship, no less!) concerning the planet Tagus III. Truly, he puts archaeologists of the past to shame. I haven't even reached the rank of Lieutenant yet.

Hi,

A. B. Jason from Consimworld here. Decided to check this out during a surfing of the blogs. I especially like the pseudoarchaeology stuff. Acquired an interest in it myself during college - largely due to my profs. rants against it. (Always entertaining.)

Nice bit about Picard. His ability to master the dating of alien artifacts while running the Federation's flagship never ceased to amaze me. As I recall too he was consulted to become the lead on the "Atlantis Project" or somesuch in a late episode...it was about traces of a civilization on Earth that was found stuck under one of the continental plates.

Yeah.

Anyway, posting on a blog about Atlantis and Star Trek has consumed my daily self-loathing quota...of to purge.
