Enterprise-D Picard
I've never known anyone with more drive, determination or more courage than Jean-Luc Picard.
~ J.P. Hanson, 2367 ("The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

Locutus of Borg
I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile. Your life as it has been is over. From this time forward, you will service us.
~ Locutus of Borg, 2366 ("The Best of Both Worlds")

Enterprise-E Picard
NO! NOOOOOOOOO!!! [Picard smashes a display case in anger] I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again! The line must be drawn HERE! This far, no further! And I... will make them PAY for what they've done!
~ Jean-Luc Picard, April 2063 ("Star Trek: First Contact")


Jean-Luc Picard, known to the Borg Collective by his designation of Locutus, was a celebrated Starfleet officer, archaeologist and diplomat who served during the latter two thirds of the 24th century. The highlights of his career were centered around assignments as commanding officer of the Federation starships: USS Stargazer, USS Enterprise-D, and the USS Enterprise-E. In these roles, Picard not only witnessed the major turning points of recent galactic history, but also played a key role in them, from making first contact as captain of the Federation's flagship with 27 alien species, including the Ferengi and the Borg.

He also became the chief contact point with the Q Continuum, and served as Arbiter of Succession, where he presided over the investiture of Chancellor Gowron. Picard would expose the Romulan Star Empire as backers of his chief rivals, later aiding a Romulan underground movement of dissidents to gain a toehold on the Romulan homeworld.

He continued to serve as captain of the Enterprise-E, the sixth Federation starship to bear the name, until at least 2379.

Attack Potency: At least Athlete level (Able to grapple with Klingons and effectively fight other humanoids, although he is not nearly as physically adept as the likes of Kirk. Was famed for being able to hold his own against several aliens at once in a bar, although he was eventually stabbed by them. Maintains his body in healthy regiments and various exercise routines, including fencing and climbing in his ship's Holodeck, prescribed by his various ships' doctors, so he should be at relatively the same level), Street level with other weapons (Have used swords and bow as Robin Hood). At least Wall Level with phasers against shields (Reasoning at weaponry description below). At least Building level with phaser against solid matter (Can stun, incapacitate and kill most adversaries and affect large objects like boulders and buildings alike. Can cause explosions if overcharged.) | At least Athlete level (Far stronger and more physically imposing than his TV counterpart. Able to effectively grapple with aliens, other humans, and even the Borg Queen to some extent. Was physically very well-maintained. Could perform acrobatic feats with ease. Should be comparable or superior to Kirk in this incarnation). At least Wall Level with phasers against shields (Reasoning at weaponry description below). At least Large Building level, likely City Block level with Compression EVA Phaser Rifle against solid matter (Could fire large beams a meter across which would melt anything in the nearby vicinity. Far more powerful than typical phaser weaponry. Could potentially dissolve Borg drones entirely at the highest setting, as well as affect Changelings, who could materialize into most known substances). Far higher with Enterprise-E auto-destruct sequence (An "Omega" option for the auto-destruct was also available and only needed the captain's authorization to initiate) | Unknown (Shuttlecraft can be equipped with phaser emitters and captain's yachts, such as the Cousteau, could generate tachyon bursts. Transporters could potentially be used to beam out a variety of explosives and other dangerous items.) | Wall level physically, Varies with Borg weapons and starships (The Borg were known to have assimilated vast numbers of different sentient species and their technology.)

Speed: At least Athletic Human, Speed of Light attack speed with phasers | At least Athletic Human, Speed of Light attack speed with phasers | Massively FTL+ | Normal Human, Massively FTL+ with borg starships

Lifting Strength: Athletic Human | Athletic Human | Unknown | Unknown | Likely Class 5+

Striking Strength: At least Athlete Class | At least Athlete Class | Unknown | Unknown | Wall Class

Durability: At least Athlete level (Withstood vicious Cardassian torture as well as several near-fatal injuries) | At least Athlete level | Unknown (Auxiliary craft and shuttles are equipped with deflector shields, which can withstand blasts which can blow the tops off of mountains and vaporize large structures.) | At least Wall level, possibly higher (Can eventually adapt to most kinds of energy/projectile attacks.)

Stamina: Above average | Athletic | N/A | Superhuman+

Range: Standard melee range, hundreds of meters with Phaser | Standard melee range, hundreds of meters with Phaser | Several thousand kilometers, 40,000 km transporter effective range | Transgalactic

Standard Equipment: Several phaser weapons, tricorder, sword and bow (as Robin Hood), auxiliary craft and shuttles, tools, Borg weapons and tools

Intelligence: Very high, Picard is a master of diplomacy and debate who resolves seemingly intractable issues between multiple, sometimes implacable parties with a Solomon-like wisdom. Though such resolutions are usually peaceful, Picard is also shown using his remarkable tactical cunning in situations when it is required. | The collective intelligence of the entire collective

Weaknesses: Normal human weaknesses. If Enterprise-E is significantly damaged, the auto-destruct system could be rendered inoperable. | Unknown | Neurolytic pathogen (accidentally assimilated by the Borg Queen in 2378, it heavily crippled the Collective), Kinetic force (Has proven to be far more effective than energy weapons), The Borg are still dependent on their organic parts (Making biological weapons useful to some extent), Isolation (Can lead to the disconnection of a drone), Lost individuality

Key: TV Picard | Movie Picard | Piloting auxiliary crafts | Assimilated into the Borg

Weaponry Explanations

Star Trek phasers work through the generation of a subatomic particle known as nadions, which according to the guidebook and script can cause "liberation of atomic nuclei, disrupting nuclear forces". Basically, it causes a reaction in solid matter that causes a semi-perpetuating subatomic destruction effect, which lasts until the particles are expended. In other words, it is the particle to energy ratio that causes the damage not the actual energy (can be seen in this source: - site used for current accepted hand phaser calc). This reaction is clearly seen with clean "disappearing" of objects hit by phasers, after being hit there is no more matter to react with. Phasers don't do as much damage as photon torpedoes against shields, b/c they focus less on raw energy output and more on damage caused by the particles which are blocked from reacting by the shields.
