Let's face it, Captain pike had a Yeoman so did Captain Kirk, why the   sophisticated Jean Luc picard never had a Yeoman for his secretary ?

They had changed the titles to Crewmember, mostly. The computer and the PADD performed most functions an officer needed. But, why do you think he found so many reasons to go to Sickbay?

Kirk had a computer in his day too a Yeoman looks after the Captain and records records on away missions.

Because instead, Picard needed a full-time counselor on the bridge. I'd much rather have a sexy little blonde secretary than my frigging shrink.

Let's face it.

I think that Captain Picard never had a Yeoman because the computer did all the work in the 24th century. Remember, Pike and Kirk were in the 23rd century...different times. The name did change from yeoman to crewman, but he never had a crewman. Did you know at first Kirk kept his yeoman in his quarters. McCoy had to tell him that she had her own yeoman quarters? She was kind of creepy and scared. Picard probably wanted to do his own work too.

Because the writers and producers of tng were not familiar or interested in naval tradition like the tos people were.

Whenever it was really important he always asked Data to record everything. So maybe Data was a Yeoman in certain instances.

Actually, I had been wondering what those scanty clad, ever changing young ladies were doing on the old Enterprise... I was probably too used to the more efficient way of working on the Enterprise D :-D

Because by 1987 Roddenberry and the gang had apparently realized that there were more career opportunities for women on starships than there were in the 1960s. Something that a few of you guys have yet to notice.
