Captain Jean-Luc Picard (July 13, 2305 - ), Star Trek: The Next Generation character, Captain of the USS Enterprise-E, portrayed by Patrick Stewart, of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Captain Jean-Luc Picard is depicted as deeply moral, highly logical and intelligent, a master of diplomacy and debate who resolves seemingly intractable issues between multiple parties with a Solomon-like wisdom. He is also hopelessly addicted to Earl Grey tea.
"It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose.
That is not a weakness; that is life."
~ Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Peak Performance"
