Maurice Picard was a Human man who lived in the 23rd and 24th centuries. He was the husband of Yvette Gessard Picard and the father of Robert Picard, Jean-Luc Picard and Claude Picard.

Maurice died sometime during Jean-Luc's service aboard the USS Stargazer, between the early 2330s and 2355. For years afterwards, Jean-Luc harbored concerns that his father had never forgiven him for leaving home and joining Starfleet. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)
