Relationships Edit

Crewmates Edit

Jean-Luc Picard Edit

Madden wanted to make a good first impression on Captain Jean-Luc Picard, so he asked Captain Riker for advice on what to say to him. Riker, a renowned practical jokester, told Madden to call Picard by his given name. Madden took his advice to heart and upon seeing Picard enter the bridge, walked over to him and introduced himself. Picard invited Martin to dine with him that night, informing him they had much to talk about. Madden responded, "Sounds good... Jean-Luc..." Picard gave him an irritated look, and Madden realized that Riker had been "pulling his leg" about Picard's casual nature.

Despite this initial setback, Picard assured Madden that he was, in fact, casual with the officers he had come to trust, and that with time, Madden would become one of those officers.[4]

Dina Elfiki Edit

Madden recommended Dina Elfiki for the science officer position on the USS Enterprise-E, stating that she had a "good head on her shoulders". Madden seemed to imply the two had a history together, possibly romantic.[5]

Starfleet Edit

William T. Riker Edit

Madden and Riker met on the bridge of the USS Enterprise-E. Riker was on his way out, heading to his new command on the USS Titan, and Madden was on his way in, taking Riker's place as executive officer of the Enterprise. Madden was a bit nervous about meeting Captain Picard, and asked about his demeanor. Sensing a good opportunity to pull a practical joke, Riker told him that Picard was "very casual" and that Madden should refer to him by his given name. Madden took Riker's advice, and upon using Picard's given name, he finally understood that Riker had been "pulling [his] leg".[6]
