Liko was a Mintakan male who lived during the mid-24th century. His wife died in the winter floods of 2365, leaving him alone with their daughter Oji.

When the Federation duck blind was exposed on his planet in 2366, Liko was injured and beamed up to the USS Enterprise-D. While in sickbay, he witnessed scenes which, to him, resembled those of the afterlife, including a very specific identification of one, Jean-Luc Picard.

Upon his return to his home, Liko believed that he had returned from the dead, and that he was saved by "the Picard", which was his interpretation of the Overseer, a god in ancient Mintakan religion.

After receiving a visit from "the Picard" in their village, Liko was still unconvinced that he was mortal and shot Picard with an arrow, proving once and for all that he was not a god. (TNG: "Who Watches The Watchers")

Liko was played by actor Ray Wise.
