For use when referring to the characters William (First Officer of the Enterprise-D and E) or Thomas Riker from the series Star Trek: The Next Generation. Use this tag for questions about the character, not those that merely mention him. Use this with the [star-trek] tag and any appropriate work tag.

William T. Riker

Notably the first-officer of Captain Jean-Luc Picard aboard the USS Enterprise-D and E throughout the series Star Trek: The Next Generation and the Star Trek films featuring the TNG crew. In 2379 he accepted promotion to the rank of captain and took control of the Uss Titan. For further information, see Memory Alpha.

Thomas Riker

A duplicate of William Riker created during a transporter accident that occurred in 2361 aboard the USS Potemkin. He was a Lieutenant at the time and pursued his career in Starfleet, adopting his middle name 'Thomas' as his new name following his discovery in 2369. For further information, see Memory Alpha.

This tag is to be used when discussing either individual, or both.
