Captain Picard’s fish, named Livingston, was first seen during the premiere season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation (Star Trek: TNG.) He became a fixture that many fans looked for when scenes placed the good Captain in his ready room. When the ship, the Enterprise D, crash lands on a planet in the movie “Star Trek: Generations,” the ship is essentially destroyed. There is no mention of Livingston surviving that horrific crash.

Star Trek: The Next Generation – Captain Picard has a pet lionfish named Livingston!
The USS Lionfish (SS-298) was a Balao-class submarine commissioned in 1942. It was the only ship in the US Navy named for a lionfish.
The lionfish was first described in 1758 by the Dutch naturalist Johan Frederick. It was also known as the firefish – obviously a reference to the pain stings you can get from its venomous spines – painful like fire!
The lionfish uses its broad, feathery pectoral fins, in an expansive display, to corner prey that it then grabs and swallows whole.
Larvae and juveniles of this species drift long distances before settling to the bottom, which accounts for its wide native distribution and rapid spread in the western Atlantic.
Six lionfish escaped into the sea in South Florida in 1992 when Hurricane Andrew destroyed a shore-front home.
