Service on the USS Enterprise-E
Six weeks prior to stardate 56950.3, Riker and the crew of the USS Enterprise battled the Reman warbird Scimitar, Praetor Shinzon's flagship during his coup d'état against Romulan authority, in the Bassen Rift. Riker was subsequently promoted to captain and assigned to command the USS Titan.
Service on the USS Titan
Will and Deanna were finally married in 2380, shortly before their transfer to the USS Titan. Their wedding party in Alaska included Captain Picard as best man, Dr. Crusher as bridesmaid, and Data, La Forge, Worf, and Wesley Crusher as groomsmen. Guinan was also present. Another ceremony, a traditional Betazoid wedding was planned on Betazed shortly following. However, that ceremony was delayed when the Enterprise was diverted to Romulus.
Geordi La Forge
Riker and Geordi La Forge were close friends from their time spent together aboard the USS Enterprise-E. Upon his departure to the USS Titan, Riker bid his friend farewell. La Forge stumbled on his words, nearly calling Riker by his former rank before correcting himself.
During his final tour of the Enterprise-E, Riker met his replacement at the first officer position, Commander Martin Madden. Madden, a bit nervous about meeting Captain Jean-Luc Picard, 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.
