This July 13th we celebrate the 77th birthday of the great Patrick Stewart, and his famous portrayl of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Starring in The Next Generation as well as several Star Trek films, Stewart's depiction of Picard offered a noble man, quick to defuse any confrontation with the necessary wise words. In honor of Mr. Stewart we offer a choice collection of Picard-lead novels.
Hearts and Minds
Continuing their exploration of the Odyssean Pass, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise discover what they at first believe is a previously uncharted world, with a civilization still recovering from the effects of global nuclear war.
The Lost Era: The Buried Age
Jean-Luc Picard. His name has gone down in legend as the captain of the U.S.S. Stargazer and two starships Enterprise. But the nine years of his life leading up to the inaugural mission of the U.S.S. Enterprise to Farpoint Station have remained a mystery––until now, as Picard's lost era is finally unearthed.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew are suddenly diverted for an unexpected diplomatic mission to the planet Romulus. Longtime enemies of the Federation, the Romulans have expressed their desire to initiate negotiations that will hopefully lead to a long-awaited unity in the galaxy. But upon their arrival on Romulus, the Enterprise crew is faced with a deadly threat.
A Hard Rain
Captain Jean-Luc Picard has long enjoyed playing the part of Dixon Hill, a hard-boiled private eye straight out of American pulpfiction. His holographic excursions into 1940s San Francisco, a colorful world of gunplay and gangsters, provide a welcome diversion from his hefty responsibilities as a Starfleet captain.
