Jean-Luc Picard made a cameo appearance in Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg. He was portrayed by EpicLLOYD.

Information on the cameo

Admiral Jean-Luc Picard is a character from CBS' Star Trek franchise, originating in the second series, The Next Generation. As captain of the USS Enterprise-D and later the Enterprise-E, Picard exhibited a stern, yet cultured demeanor for which he became known and respected. A staunch supporter of Starfleet and its Prime Directive, Picard was also one of the Federation's top diplomats in his tenure.

Picard's distinctions, however, would not be realized without him and his crew risking their lives and their ship on multiple occasions. As a younger man, Picard had been stabbed through his heart in a brawl with a Nausicaan, to which he has referred several times. His status as a diplomat coupled with his mechanical heart made him a near-perfect vessel for the cybernetic race known as the Borg; as "Locutus", Picard was to aid in assimilating Earth. His crewmates were able to reverse his integration, and he later used his inside knowledge to decimate the Borg.

He would face several of the universe's most daunting villains in his later career, including tyrants Soran and Shinzon, teaming up with the legendary James T. Kirk to bring down the former. When Kirk was ultimately killed, Picard laid him to rest on Veridian III.

Picard was later involved in the evacuation of the Romulan home world when its parent star went supernova, but militant factions within the Romulan population orchestrated a catastrophic accident on Mars that saw the Federation banning all androids from service and eventually to his own resignation and retirement from Starfleet. While in retirement, Picard was contacted by a woman later found to be a gynoid clone of his trusted lieutenant, Data; and when she was destroyed by underground Romulan forces, Picard set off on a largely private mission to find and protect her identical twin sister. This mission saw him revisit many of his old colleagues and friends, eventually leading to the planet Coppelius where the Romulans followed suit and engaged Picard in a battle for the planet itself. Though he and his motley crew were ultimately successful, Picard died of a brain abnormality in 2399. He was soon after transplanted into an android shell and "revived" on Coppelius Station.

Picard was portrayed for seven television seasons and four feature films by British stage and screen actor Sir Patrick Stewart, in what became Stewart's defining role. Stewart reprised his role in 2020's Picard, available on the Paramount+ streaming service.
