Lieutenant Commander Jack Crusher, a character in the Star Trek fictional universe, is the husband to Beverly Crusher and the father of Wesley Crusher. Throughout Star Trek: The Next Generation, the character is played by actor Doug Wert .
Jack Crusher was the second officer (third in command) aboard the USS Stargazer, Jean-Luc Picard's first command. He was killed while on a mission, which Picard blamed himself for and was troubled by it until he met Beverly Crusher when she first reported on the USS Enterprise. Crusher assured Picard she had signed on the Enteprise-D voluntarily and not due to Picard's influence.
Jack Crusher once made a holographic recording of himself, where he explained his life and recent happenings to his son Wesley, then in his early teens. Jack originally intended this to be the first in a series of messages, one every couple of years, but due to a twist of fate, this was the only recording he ever got a chance to make. By the time Wesley first got to view the recording, Jack was already dead.
