As far as we know, the Picard Maneuver has only been successfully used once.  [[Jean-Luc Picard|Captain Picard]], then captain of the ''[[USS Stargazer]]'', used it to counter-attack a [[Ferengi]] ship that ambushed the ''Stargazer'', destroying the attacker in one salvo.  Under the influence of a Ferengi mind-control device, Picard attempted to repeat the attack against the ''[[Enterprise-D|Enterprise]]'', but knowing what to expect, the ''Enterprise'' crew were able predict where the ''Stargazer'' would drop out of warp by detecting the compression of trace hydrogen ahead of it, allowing them to immobilize the ''Stargazer'' with a [[tractor beam]].<ref>[[TNG]] "The Battle"</ref>

One would think that since they had experience with the maneuver, that they should know that the second, "new" image would be the correct one.
