The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard tells the story of one of the most celebrated names in Starfleet history. His extraordinary life and career makes for dramatic reading: court martials, unrequited love, his capture and torture at the hand of the Cardassians, his assimilation with the Borg and countless other encounters as captain of the celebrated Starship Enterprise. Jean-Luc Picard is a retired Human Starfleet officer and the former Federation Ambassador to Vulcan. His first command was the U.S.S. Stargazer (NCC-2893), but he is most well-known for serving as commanding officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) and, following that ship's destruction, its successor, U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-E).
