I was just reading this post, which told me that Picard was not too young when he had his relationships with some young women (Vash in "Captain's Holiday" or Anij in Insurrection, for example).

Even recently, a new relationship bloomed between Picard and

Laris--who really does look a bit younger--at the end of season 2.

What is the greatest known age separations between Picard and his lovers?

  • No. It wasn't "mutual" :) And the age difference is probably at least few hundred thousand years, which is just absolutely scandalous. Nov 12, 2022 at 20:08
  • And he's dating a fully-grown Romulan. Nov 12, 2022 at 20:44
  • Perhaps the young wife he had in the episode 'The Inner Light'? This is the episode in which he learns to play the flute.

    Well yeah. If they can't get him to make a noise like this how am I supposed to take it seriously.

Picard seems to have a thing for older women.

In the film Insurrection, he has relations with Anij, a woman who's celebrated her tricentennial. Given that Picard is in his 60s, that would make the age difference between himself and Anij around 240 years.

They were at her door; as she turned to him to take her leave, he said, with feigned seriousness, “There’s one thing I don’t understand.” And at her questioning gaze, continued: “In three hundred years, you never learned to swim?”

For once, he had her at a disadvantage; she grinned, embarrassed. “I just … haven’t gotten around to it yet.”

Insurrection: Official Novelisation

In the second season of Star Trek: Picard, he begins a relationship with his housekeeper Laris. She appears to be in her 50s (the actress that plays her was 59 during filming), although her Romulan physique may mean that she's actually rather older.

Given that

robo-Picard is only around a year old at this point

the age different would be

at least 50+ years
