  • Bruce Maddox was a male Human in the 24th century, and one of Starfleet's foremost cybernetics experts. In 2341, he was among those asked to rule on the android Data's admittance to Starfleet Academy—he was the only person to object, on the grounds that Data was not a sentient being. By 2365, Maddox held the rank of commander, and was the Associate Chair of Robotics at the Daystrom Technological Institute. That year, he submitted a proposal to disassemble Lieutenant Commander Data for research purposes, which was approved by Admiral Mamoru Nakamura. Data challenged these orders, and Maddox had to argue his case before Judge Advocate General officer Phillipa Louvois. Louvois ruled against Maddox, though the hearing brought him a greater appreciation of Data's inherent worth. This came to be known as the "Data decision".(TNG episode: "The Measure of a Man", ST website: The Path to 2409) Despite their earlier friction, Data held no ill will against Maddox, and the two would regularly correspond for several years to follow. (TNG episode: "Data's Day" TNG novel: Immortal Coil) In the late 24th century, Maddox was a scheduled guest lecturer for the Starfleet Academy course Introduction to Artificial Intelligence. By that point, Maddox had become the Chairman of Robotics at the Daystrom Institute of Technology. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Starfleet Academy Handbook) In 2374, Maddox worked with Reginald Barclay and Emil Vaslovik on a project to combine holographic technology with a positronic brain to develop a new type of android. Maddox was injured in an attack on the facility by the Exo III androids, who attempted to steal the prototype the team had developed. Unknown to both the androids and Maddox, Vaslovik had stolen the prototype and replaced it with a non-functional dummy. Vaslovik, who revealed himself as the immortal Flint, had hidden the prototype aboard the USS Enterprise-E disguised as Chief of Security Rhea McAdams. The Enterprise was successful in defeating the androids, and Maddox returned to his work. (TNG novel: Immortal Coil) In 2380, Maddox, now holding the rank of captain, argued before Federation President Nanietta Bacco and the Federation Judiciary Council that B-4 should not be disassembled. He was successful in his arguments against Doctor Lars Patek, and B-4 remained in the custody of Maddox and the Daystrom Institute. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)
  • Commander Bruce Maddox was a male Human 24th century Starfleet cyberneticist. He worked in the Cybernetics Division of the Daystrom Institute and, in 2365, was the Associate Chair of Robotics. In 2341, he was consulted in Starfleet Academy admissions. He was the only person to object to Data's entry on the grounds that, as an android, Data did not qualify as a sentient being. Ever since learning about Data and Doctor Noonian Soong's work, Maddox was inspired to continue it. He followed Data's career remotely while he worked on his in cybernetics. He dreamed of creating more androids to help Starfleet in dangerous situations. In 2365, Maddox earned Admiral Nakamura's support on a proposal to disassemble and reverse-engineer Lieutenant Commander Data in order to gain the final piece of knowledge he needed. After presenting his proposal to Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William T. Riker and Data, Data studied Maddox' proposal and found it to be flawed in its ability to preserve the nuances of his positronic brain, prompting Maddox to assert his authority and order Data to submit by transferring him from USS Enterprise-D to Maddox' command aboard Starbase 173. Data refused and resigned from Starfleet, but Maddox challenged his right to do so, claiming that Data was property, not a sentient lifeform, a position initially supported by Captain Phillipa Louvois of the Judge Advocate General's office. Captain Picard challenged this position, stating that Data is arguably a sentient being as defined by most of Maddox' own criteria. Furthermore, Data currently represented an entire race and duplicating him for the purposes of forced labor constituted slavery. Louvois agreed with Picard's standpoint and ruled that Data was a sentient being with full rights under Federation law. Data nonetheless encouraged Maddox to continue his research. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man" ) When Data's program was infiltrated after an Iconian software transmission his systems went down. Geordi La Forge mentioned that an expert such as Maddox, or somebody similar could help. (TNG: "Contagion" ) Despite the troubles inherent in their earlier relationship, Data held no ill will against Maddox, and corresponded regularly with him, keeping detailed records of all inter-personal activities. (TNG: "Data's Day" ) Bruce Maddox was played by Brian Brophy.

As the Associate Chair of Robotics at the Daystrom Institute, Maddox was the only person on a review board to object to the android Data's application to Starfleet Academy in 2341, believing that Data was not a sentient being. In 2365, Commander Maddox, still under the impression that Data was not sentient, and therefore Starfleet property, attempted to force Data to submit to an experimental procedure involving disassembly, in order to further his research toward mass producing the Soong-type android. A hearing was convened at the newly commissioned Starbase 173, where after much deliberation, it was found that Data had full sentience. Data politely refused the procedure, but kept a correspondence with Maddox, and told him that he would assist him in the future, should the procedure become less risky. (TNG: "Data's Day", "The Measure Of A Man") By 2374, Maddox held the rank of captain, and had developed a holotronic android with Emil Vaslovik and Reginald Barclay. (TNG novel: Immortal Coil)

Data si rifiutò e diede le dimissioni dalla Flotta Stellare, ma Maddox lo sfidò a farlo, affermando che Data era un proprietà, non una forma di vita senziente, una posizione supportata dal Capitano Phillipa Louvois dell'ufficio Generale dei Giudici e Avvocati. Il capitano Picard sfidò questa presa di posizione, affermando che Data era un essere senziente secondo i criteri di Maddox. Inoltre, Data - al momento - rappresentava un'intera razza ed il duplicarlo per farlo lavorare a forza era schiavitù. La Louvois fu d'accordo col punto di vista di Picard e deliberò che Data era un essere senziente con pieni diritti secondo la legge della Federazione. (TNG: "La misura di un uomo") Ironicamente, argomentazioni simili furono dibattute dal Medico Olografico d'Emergenza della USS Voyager circa i diritti degli esseri olografici (VOY: "In carne e ossa - prima parte" VOY: "In carne e ossa - seconda parte"). Nonostante l'accaduto, Data continuò a raccontare le proprie esperienze al comandante Maddox, tra cui le sue attività inter-personali.

Louvois ruled against Maddox, though the hearing brought him a greater appreciation of Data's inherent worth. Maddox would continue a correspondence with Data for several years to follow. In 2366, after the failed attempt on the android child Lal, Maddox proposed to Data that they start a new project jointly and reattempt to construct a fully functional adult android. This eventually led to the successful construction and permanent activation of a new Maddox-Data type android, Gen, in 2367. Gen would be the first of five Maddox-Data type androids constructed and over the course of twelve years, until Data's untimely death in 2379. In 2380, Maddox, now holding the rank of Captain, argued against the plans of the scientists of the Daystrom Institute to disassemble Soong-type prototype B-4 before Federation President Nanietta Bacco and the Federation Judiciary Council that B-4 should not be disassembled.
