The Madrid was a freighter on independent service in the late 24th century.

In late 2379, the Madrid accepted a cargo shipment from the freighter Caedera and transported contraband nadion-pulse cannon equipment to Tezwa. After the shipments were discovered by the USS Enterprise-E, the USS Amargosa or USS Musashi intercepted the vessel and impounded it, holding the crew in detention. Captain Jean-Luc Picard questioned the freighter crew along with the other captured crews. (TNG novel: A Time to Heal)

History

Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. It is also the third most populous city (within city limits) in the European Union after London and Berlin, and the third most populous urban area in the European Union after Paris and London. Its economic and political importance, as well as its major cultural influence, rank Madrid as one of the major cities of the world. Its residents are called Madrileños.

The city is located on the river Manzanares in the center of the country, between the autonomous communities of Castilla y León and Castilla-La Mancha. Due to its economic output, standard of living, and market size, Madrid is considered one of the major financial centers of the Iberian Peninsula, it hosts the head offices of the vast majority of the major Spanish companies, as well as the headquarters of three of the world's 100 largest companies.As the capital city of Spain, seat of government, and residence of the Spanish monarch, Madrid is also the political center of Spain.

As the capital of Spain, Madrid is a city of great cultural and political importance. While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighborhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the huge Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631; the imposing 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; an archaeological museum of international reputation; and three superb art museums: Prado Museum, which hosts one of the finest art collections in the world, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, housed in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.

The population of the city was 3.5 million (December 2005), while the estimated urban area population was 5.5 million. The entire population of the Madrid metropolitan area (urban area and suburbs) is calculated to be 5.84 million. The city spans a total of 607 square kilometres (234 sq mi).

Following the restoration of democracy in 1975 and Spain's integration into the European Union, Madrid has played an increasing role in European finances, marking the city as one of the most important European metropolises.

A great part of the city was owned by mutant Miguel Provenza, who was later defeated by El Águila.
