William Thomas Riker was a Human Starfleet officer perhaps best known for his long assignment as first officer under Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the USS Enterprise-E. In 2380, he finally accepted a promotion as captain of the USS Titan.
Battle with ShinzonEdit
Will Riker's last mission aboard the Enterprise-E was during its encounter with Praetor Shinzon in 2380. Although Riker was eager to begin his life aboard the USS Titan with Counselor Troi, he realized how important it was to stop Shinzon and was willing to sacrifice anything in order to prevent him from using his thalaron radiation weapon on Earth.
The Scimitar fought and weakened the Enterprise in the Battle of the Bassen Rift, sending several boarding parties to the ship. Riker and Worf took a security detail to fight off the invading Remans. The Reman Viceroy entered the Jefferies tubes in an attempt to reach the bridge and kidnap Captain Picard. Riker followed and they fought hand-to-hand, with Riker eventually killing the Viceroy by knocking him down an Enterprise maintenance shaft.
Captain of the Titan Edit
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.
