Today, June 16, is Captain Picard Day. In an epic cosmic coincidence, it also happens to be Father's Day. It's too bad that Jean-Luc doesn't have any kids to be a father to. In fact, he kind of really, really dislikes children in general. But over the course of seven years, Picard ends up in a handful of situations where, like it or not, he's got to try to be a good dad. To celebrate Captain Picard and fathers across the Alpha Quadrant, we'll take a look back at six of the best episodes where our favorite Star Trek captain does his best to deal with kids.
Check out the gallery below to see what episodes we dug up, and make sure and let us know if we missed any obvious ones. Don't forget, all of Star Trek: The Next Generation is available for instant streaming on Netflix, and if you need a last-minute Father's Day gift, you can get seasons 1-3 in HD on Blu-Ray right now, with Season 4 coming out on June 30.
