The USS Stargazer was the first command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.  Picard was originally a bridge officer on the Stargazer, but after the captain was killed and the first officer injured he took command. Picard’s crew included Jack Crusher the first husband of Beverly Crusher and the father of Wesley Crusher.

In the Battle of Maxia Picard was able to defeat his opponent, but was also forced to abandon the Stargazer. Later the Ferengi DaiMon Bok discovered the wreck of the Stargazer and used it and a mind control device to try to get revenge on Picard.  Bok blamed Picard for the death of his son who was commanding the vessel the Stargazer fought in the Battle of Maxia.

Riker was always there to talk a brainwashed Picard out of things.
