- The date range for Taggart serving under Picard is not specified, but Picard retired in 2385 according to The Path to 2409 so it would have happened before then.
By 2409 Taggart held the rank of captain and was CO of a Miranda-class light cruiser. He and his ship were assigned to Starfleet Academy, and Taggart was responsible for a phaser training exercise on the holodeck. Afterwards he took several cadets, including Elisa Flores, T'Vrell, and R'raak aboard his ship for a training cruise, making another cadet his XO for the duration. (STO mission: "Graduation Day")
After receiving a distress signal from the freighter SS Break Even, Taggart ordered his crew to sail to the rescue. This proved to be a trap set by the IKS Chot, and Taggart's ship was boarded and he was captured and taken aboard a cloaked battlecruiser. Realizing he was about to be executed by the Klingon captain, Taggart ordered his first officer to lock onto his combadge and open fire, then was fatally stabbed. (STO mission: "Training Cruise")
