Personal life

Crusher's father spent little time at home when Jack was a child. As he grew older, Jack understood his father had never wanted a family. This influenced Jack's feelings later in life when he had a son of his own. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)

In Starfleet, Crusher was best friends with Jean-Luc Picard, his commanding officer aboard the USS Stargazer. (TNG episode: "Conspiracy")

Jack Crusher was introduced to Beverly Howard by their mutual friend, Walker Keel. (TNG episode: "Conspiracy") They were married in 2348, after Crusher presented her with a book entitled How to Advance Your Career Through Marriage. (TNG episode: "Family") They were wed in San Francisco, in a ceremony attended by Picard, Keel, Leo Blais and Marielle Kumaretanga, amongst others. (TNG novel: Death in Winter)

Later that year, they became the parents of Wesley Crusher. (TNG episode: "Coming of Age")

USS Stargazer

In 2345, Crusher served as science officer aboard the Stargazer. In that year, the Gorn contacted the Stargazer in order initiate diplomatic communication with the Federation. (TNG novel: Requiem)

In 2353, Lieutenant Commander Crusher visited the planet Xenex along with Captain Picard, to arrange talks between the Xenexians and the Danteri government. (NF novel: House of Cards)


In 2354, the Stargazer encountered an unknown anomaly later termed a Nensi phenomenon, which crippled the ship and caused a dangerous energy build-up in the starboard nacelle. Crusher and Lieutenant Peter Joseph both volunteered to go outside the ship to detach the nacelle with phaser rifles. In the course of this operation, Crusher was caught in an explosion, though was successful in cutting the nacelle free. Joseph, who had panicked and left Crusher alone, feigned unconsciouness when he saw Picard on his way to retrieve his men, and allowed himself to be "rescued" while Crusher perished. Joseph later claimed both men had been overcome by the energy cycling in the nacelle. (TNG novel: Reunion)

The novelization of TNG pilot episode "Encounter at Farpoint" establishes that Crusher was made the Stargazer's first officer in 2349, and died three months later during an away mission where the natives had turned violently against the visitors. This is contradicted by information later established in the TV series, as well as the Star Trek: Stargazer stories and others.
