(Played by Ronny Cox)

A Starfleet command officer with a solid history of achievement, and at least one son. He was commander of the U.S.S. Cairo just prior to his brief captaincy of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D in 2369, during Picard's covert mission and capture by Cardassians, where he proved to be an unpopular and unnecessarily stern taskmaster. It was his order that led Troi to resume wearing regulation Starfleet uniforms again, but his relationship with Riker proved so rocky that he had him relieved of his first officer standing. Jellico did not expect Picard to survive his mission and return, but there is no word if he resumed his former command once he did.
