Jean-Luc Picard Edit

Martin 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, sensing an opportunity to play a practical joke, told him, "He's not exactly a by-the-book officer – he likes to keep things very casual with his senior staff. In fact, the best way to get on his good side is to call him Jean-Luc." Martin, eager to please, thanked Will, and upon seeing Jean-Luc enter the bridge, walked over to him and introduced himself. Jean-Luc invited Martin to dine with him that night, informing him they had much to talk about. Martin 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 Martin that he was, in fact, casual with the officers he had come to trust, and that with time, Martin would become one of those officers.[2]
