"Someday, I'll be leaving for my starship, too."
– René Picard, 2367 ("Family")

René Picard was a male Human and the son of Robert and Marie Picard. He was the nephew of Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard through his father. He lived with his parents in La Barre, France on Earth.

Like his famous uncle, René had an interest in space exploration. Jean-Luc and René had a particularly close relationship, as a running joke between the two, Jean-Luc referred to René as "uncle" and René referred to Jean-Luc as "nephew." (TNG: "Family")

René died during his childhood in a fire in 2371, along with his father. He was survived by his mother. (Star Trek Generations)

Like his father and uncle, René would have suffered from Shalaft's Syndrome. (Star Trek Nemesis)

During Jean-Luc's Nexus experience in 2371, René celebrated Christmas with his uncle's family. (Star Trek Generations)
