The name of this individual appeared on an okudagram that appeared on Jean-Luc Picard's desk monitor, and was not verbally referenced on screen. A legible version of the okudagram appeared in the reference book, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission.
This reference was an in-joke to John Lithgow's character in the cult science fiction adventure The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension!.
