Matthew was a male Human native to Danula II, born in 2380 to a woman named Peggy.

In early 2381, as the invading Borg fleet approached Danula, Peggy's family put her and the infant Matthew onto an evacuation ship. They eventually ended up at the iy'Dewra'ni refugee camp on Pacifica, where they both picked up a waterborne pathogen. They were both cared for by Doctor Beverly Crusher, but because he had suffered organ damage, Crusher placed Matthew in stasis pending the availability of surgical facilities. When the USS Enterprise-E arrived at Pacifica, Matthew was transferred to their sickbay, where Dr. Tropp operated on him and was able to successfully repair all damage. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)
