This character is a member of the Picard family.

Maurice Picard was a Human man who lived in the 23rd and 24th centuries. He was the husband of Yvette Gessard Picard and the father of Robert Picard, Jean-Luc Picard and Claude Picard.


As a young man, Maurice had applied to Starfleet Academy, but his application was not accepted. Upon returning home to France, Maurice told no one - not even his wife or sons - that he had attempted to join Starfleet. His son Jean-Luc would not learn of Maurice's attempt to join Starfleet until many years later, and realize that he had lived his father's dream. (TNG novel: The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard).

Maurice ran the Chateau Picard vineyards in La Barre, and preferred the traditional methods and lifestyle of centuries past. (TNG episodes: "Family", "Conundrum", "Tapestry")

Maurice died sometime during Jean-Luc's service aboard the USS Stargazer, between the early 2330s and 2355. For years afterwards, Jean-Luc harbored concerns that his father had never forgiven him for leaving home and joining Starfleet. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)

In the TNG comic: "The Gift", Picard's father was given the name Claude.
