FINAL RANK:Admiral (Retired)
FINAL ASSIGNMENT:Commanding Officer, U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E

PLACE OF BIRTH:13 July 2305, LaBarre, France, Earth
Born to Maurice and Yvette Picard. Never married. An exceptional Starfleet officer, Picard is also a skilled diplomat. He turned down a promotion to Admiral in 2364. He enjoys horseback riding, reading Shakespeare, Dixon Hill holo-novels, and Earl Grey tea. An amateur archeologist (published), he studied under Professor Richard Galen.

In 2327 he was stabbed through the heart by Nausicaans at the Bonestell Recreation Facility on Starbase Earhart and received an artificial heart, which requires periodic replacement. Picard was promoted directly to Captain from Lieutenant in 2355 when the Captain of the U.S.S. Stargazer was killed.

He plays the Ressikan flute as a result of receiving entire life-memories of Kamin in 2368, who lived on the planet Kataan one thousand years previous.

In 2366 he was abducted and partially assimilated by the Borg. He was rescued by an Enterprise away team. Dr. Beverly Crusher was able to remove the Borg implants.

In 2369, Admiral Alynna Nechayev reassigned Picard to Special Operations. He, along with Enterprise Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher and Security Chief Lt. Worf, were to book passage to the Cardassian world of Celtris III, where they were to neutralize a metagenic weapon. The Celtris III laboratory was discovered to be a ruse to lure Picard into Cardassian territory. Worf and Crusher were able to escape, but Picard was captured. Cardassian Gul Madred tortured him in an attempt to obtain Starfleet tactical information on the Minos Korva system, located near the Cardassian border. He was eventually released when Captain Jellico and the Enterprise crew uncovered a Cardassian invasion force ready to invade the Federation sector surrounding Minos Korva.

In 2379, Reman military leader Shinzon assumed role as Praetor of the Romulan Empire. Admiral Janeway dispatched the Enterprise to Romulus to negotiate peace. It was discovered that Shinzon was not Reman at all, but a discarded human clone of Jean-Luc Picard. He was dying from a side effect of the cloning process, and needed a sample of Picard's DNA to cure himself. He built a biogenic weapon into his warship, the Scimitar, to destroy the Federation and Earth. Picard killed Shinzon and Data transferred Picard back to the Enterprise before destroying the Reman weapon.
