In 2339, Jean-Luc Picard was given an opportunity to become the foremost archaeologist of his generation by his archeology professor Doctor Richard Galen. Galen foresaw Picard's achievements outstripping even his own, but rather than accept, Picard decided to reject a life of profound discovery to eventually become a starship captain. (TNG: "The Chase")
In 2366, archaeologists identified the markings on an artifact that indicated that they had located the Koinonian homeworld. Based on their findings, their culture became embroiled in a war that lasted generations, which resulted, based on archaeological evidence, in their own destruction. At the time of the dig, Marla Aster served as the ship's archaeologist aboard the USS Enterprise-D. She died during the expedition while investigating subterranean ruins. (TNG: "The Bonding")
Following their meeting on Risa in 2366, Vash asked Captain Picard if there were any openings for an archaeologist aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Captain's Holiday") After spending time in the Gamma Quadrant with Q, and then returning to Deep Space 9, she told Benjamin Sisko that "as an archaeologist, I've spent half my life sleeping in tents. To me, any bed will be a luxury." (DS9: "Q-Less")
After several visions, Benjamin Sisko was able to find the sacred city of B'hala in a matter of a few days, despite the fact that Bajoran archaeologists had been searching for it for nearly 10,000 years. (DS9: "Rapture") Later, the archaeologists excavating B'hala discovered an artifact they summoned Sisko to read that stated "Welcome Emissary." (DS9: "The Reckoning")
