Marcus Nash as Ensign Jean-Luc Picard

Before he was Captain we got to see a younger Ensign Jean-Luc Picard in The Next Generations Season 6 Episode 15 “Tapestry”. This autograph is from the 2016 Rittenhouse Archives Star Trek The Next Generation Series.

This episode with Q shows how Jean-Luc almost died from a Nausicaan dagger through the heart. Skip to the current day Season 1 Episode 7 episode of Picard, we will see an older Jean Luc tell Kestra to aim her bow at his head instead of his heart because it is made of solid Duratanium.
