Matt Franklin was a Starfleet ensign serving aboard the USS Jenolan in 2294.

In that year, the Jenolan crashed on the surface of a previously-undiscovered Dyson sphere. Along with former Starfleet officer Montgomery Scott, who was a passenger on board the Jenolan bound for the Norpin colony, Franklin was the only survivor. Realizing that they did not have enough supplies to wait for a rescue, Scott conceived the idea of locking the transporter pattern buffer into a diagnostic cycle, and then cross-connecting the buffer to the phase inducers to provide a regenerative power source. This effectively allowed Scott and Franklin to survive in a state of suspended animation in a dematerialized state until they could be rescued. This innovation proved successful for Scott, who was rescued by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D 75 years later, but Franklin's pattern had degraded 53 percent due to the failure of one of the inducers. (TNG: "Relics")

Franklin's status as an ensign, was mentioned in the episode's script, but not spoken on-screen.
