In a deleted scene from Star Trek Nemesis, Martin Madden was a Starfleet commander who would have replaced William T. Riker as first officer of the starship USS Enterprise-E in 2379.
According to the scene, Madden transferred from the USS Talos to assume the duties of Enterprise first officer. The replacement was necessary as Riker had accepted an offer to captain the USS Titan and second officer Data (who was in line to succeed Riker) was killed in battle.
In the scene, Madden arrived on the bridge just as Riker was leaving. Madden, intent on making a good first impression with his new CO, Jean-Luc Picard , requested advice from Riker regarding Picard's attitudes. Sensing the opportunity for a good joke, Riker misinformed his replacement, telling him that Picard was very laid back and prefers to be called "Jean-Luc." Madden took Riker's advice to heart, and only after receiving a stare from Picard as a response did he realize that Riker was "pulling his leg." Picard later informed Madden that they were going to be going on their first assignment, exploring the Denab System and it should be interesting, saying it was a place "where no one has gone before".
