Commodore Bruce Maddox was a 24th century Starfleet cybernetics expert, and the Associate Chair of Robotics at the Daystrom Technological Institute. He was the only person to object to Data's entry into Starfleet Academy in 2341 on the grounds that, as an android, Data did not qualify as a sentient being.
In 2381, Bruce visited the planet Mudd in hopes of assistance on creating Positronic brain. He would also be instrumental in the recovery of Commander Data's memories from the B4 unit. In 2382 he created Rayna Maddox. In 2389, he was accused of assaulting an android, and theft odf android components on the planet Mudd. Commander Dorian Vatto would clear him of the charges, and find the android recreation of Harcourt Mudd had engineered this to escape the planet Mudd.
