About Captain Jean-Luc Picard

Jean-Luc Picard was born in the year 2305. From an early age, he wanted to join Starfleet but failed his first Starfleet Academy entrance exam.

As he rose through the ranks, fellow Starfleet officers saw him as an intelligent man with strong morals. He was great at debates and solving diplomatic issues, leaving most in peaceful resolutions. His English upbringing also led him to have a strong accent and a love for Earl Grey tea and Shakespeare.
