Federation Archaeology Council

Federation Archaeology Council, 2367

Switzer was a mid-24th century Federation archaeologist. According to Jean-Luc Picard, he was considered to be one of the "greatest scientific minds" in the Federation and a "giant in the field of archaeology". Although an avid archaeologist as well, Picard described himself a mere "enthusiastic amateur" compared to Switzer.

Switzer attended the annual Federation Archaeology Council-held symposium aboard the USS Enterprise-D in 2367. (TNG: "Qpid")
