Character Actor Episodes
Tactics Officer Peter Parros A Matter of Honor (TNG)
Klingon officer serving aboard the IKS Pagh in 2365. He escorted William Riker to see Captain Kargan, but kept looking askance at the commander because he'd never seen a human before. Later, in the mess hall, he also admitted that he never knew humans had a sense of humor. Regarding his family, his mother was still living, but his father was killed in battle at Tranome Sar.
Tahna Los Jeffrey Nordling Past Prologue (DS9)
Bajoran terrorist who comes aboard Deep Space Nine asking for asylum only to escape Cardassian pursuit and begin work on his next attack
Taibak John Fleck The Mind's Eye (TNG)
Romulan officer and scientist who successfully "conditioned" Geordi La Forge to kill Klingon governor Vagh of Krios, although the assassination failed. Taibak served aboard Commander Sela's Warbird in late 2367, and his "brainwashing" efforts were part of a larger Romulan plot to disrupt the alliance between the Federation and the Klingon Empire.
Enabran Tain Paul Dooley The Wire (DS9) recurring thereafter
Former head of the Obsidian Order and the father of Elim Garak
Juliana Tainer Fionnula Flanagan Inheritance (TNG)
A Soong-type android created in the image of Noonien Soong's dying wife, Juliana Soong; at Juliana's death, Noonien transferred his wife's consciousness into the android who awoke believing she was Juliana Soong; later left Noonien, married Pran Tainer and took up residence on planet Atrea IV
Tal Jack Donner The Enterprise Incident (TOS)
Subcommander of the Romulan fleet that brackets the Enterprise when she "strays" into Romulan space. After Captain Kirk steals the cloaking device and beams back aboard the Enterprise, Tal sets off in pursuit. When his Commander orders him to destroy the Federation starship, he attempts to comply, but fails because Mr. Scott managed to successfully install the cloaking device and render the Enterprise "invisible."
Tal Celes Zoe McLellan The Haunting of Deck Twelve (VOY)
Good Shepherd (VOY)
Bajoran sensor analyst on Voyager, assigned to Astrometrics. Despite her evident insecurity, she later demonstrated bravery, refusing to abandon Janeway in danger. ("Good Shepherd")
Taleen Nancy Youngblut Displaced (VOY)
Nyrian who explained a new customized habitat to the Voyager crew, as part of the Nyrian's forced relocation scam.
Talok Todd Stashwick Kir'Shara (ENT)
Romulan agent who posed as a Vulcan major for many years, working with the radical Administrator V'Las of the Vulcan High Command to force reunification between their two peoples. A "very long time" before 2154, Talok served under T'Pol in the Tomed mission. In 2154, V'Las ordered Talok to eradicate the remaining Syrrannites. Talok tracked down Jonathan Archer in Vulcan's Forge and attempted to take the Kir'Shara, but Archer escaped. After V'Las was removed and the Vulcan High Command disbanded, Talok's position was compromised and he was forced to leave Vulcan.[1]
Tarcassian Razor Beast None (Only discussed, never seen.) Imaginary Friend, Rascals (TNG)
Imaginary friend from the childhood of the enigmatic female El-Aurian bartender Guinan, who ran Ten Forward, the lounge aboard the USS Enterprise-D. The Tarcassian razor beast was a winged, furry animal noted for its spiny wings, and its loping way of locomotion. When Guinan was troubled, she'd talk to it, and she enjoyed imagining that she was curling up on its warm belly.
Taris Carolyn Seymour Contagion (TNG)
Romulan subcommander of the IRW Haakona. She spotted and chased the USS Yamato NCC-71807 throughout the Romulan Neutral Zone before finally witnessing its destruction due to systems failures. When confronted almost immediately by the Enterprise-D, she denies any involvement in the Yamato's destruction and orders Captain Jean-Luc Picard to leave the Neutral Zone. Later, at Iconia, her "excuse" for having followed the Enterprise-D was to claim the planet for the Romulan Star Empire, but when Commander William Riker points out that neither side can claim anything in the Neutral Zone, she again orders the starship to leave, or else she'll destroy it and the Away Team on Iconia. In truth, Taris is deeply frustrated; earlier, the Haakona tapped into the Yamato's log as it was being transmitted to the Enterprise-D, and has now become crippled by Iconian "malware." When Picard steps onto her ship from the Iconian portal, she blames him for sabotage, but seems satisfied that he'll die when her ship autodestructs. Picard, however, is beamed back to the Enterprise-D, and Riker shares the "memory wipe" solution that Geordi La Forge developed with Taris.[2]
Taurik Alexander Enberg Lower Decks (TNG)
Vulcan ensign and junior engineer aboard the Enterprise-D. His ideas for improving warp drive operation rankle La Forge at first, but La Forge later sees the merit in Taurik's suggestions and invites him to help test them.

Romulan commander who, in 2364, made the first "official" contact with the Federation after more than 53 years of Romulan isolation. He was primarily charged with discovering why several Romulan outposts along the Neutral Zone had disappeared, but the re-emergence was also orchestrated to show off the Romulans' massive new D'Deridex class "warbird" starships. Tebok ominously proclaimed "we are back" to Captain Picard.
Temarek Elkanah J. Burns The Vengeance Factor (TNG)
Temarek was an Acamarian Gatherer and a member of Clan Lornak. During treaty negotiations in 2366, he discovered the corpse of Volnoth, who was killed by Sovereign Marouk's servant Yuta because of ancient clan rivalries.

Clark Terrell Paul Winfield WOK
Captain of the starship Reliant. Controlled by Khan Noonien Singh via a Ceti eel, forcing him to nearly kill Admiral Kirk. Rather than murder a fellow Starfleet officer, he committed suicide.

Thelev William O'Connell Journey to Babel (TOS)
An Orion agent posing as a member of the Andorian delegation to the 2267 "Babel" conference. His mission is to create mutual suspicion among the Federation ambassadors aboard the Enterprise.

Toddman Leon Russom The Die Is Cast (DS9)
Starfleet vice admiral at Starfleet Security in 2371. After Enabran Tain launched a joint Obsidian Order/Tal Shiar attack on the Founders' homeworld, Toddman ordered Commander Benjamin Sisko to evacuate Starbase Deep Space Nine of all nonessential personnel and put the USS Defiant NX-74205 on standby alert. He believed that when the Jem'Hadar inevitably counterattacked, they wouldn't be too particular about their targets. Toddman denied Sisko permission to take the Defiant into the Gamma Quadrant and look for Odo; Sisko's top priority was to guard Bajor. Later, after learning that Sisko went anyway, Toddman decided to forgo any courts-martial, but, with tongue in cheek, promised to either prosecute or promote Sisko if he pulled a stunt like that again.[3]

Torg Stephen Liska SFS
Klingon officer aboard Commander Kruge's Bird-of-Prey. He and his boarding party are killed when the Enterprise's self-destruct sequence destroys the Federation starship. He may have been Kruge's first officer, as he assumed the command chair when Kruge was on the surface of Genesis.

Vash had discovered the Tox Uthat, an artifact thieves were determined to take from her; with Picard's help, the thieves were thwarted. During this adventure, she and Picard fell in love. They met up again in the episode "Qpid", in which Vash became annoyed on finding that none of Picard's senior staff had even heard of her, despite his explanation that he is "a very private man." Q abducted her and the Enterprise senior staff, casting them into a Robin Hood scenario, with Picard playing Robin Hood and Vash as Maid Marian. The result was Vash leaving with Q to the Gamma Quadrant, to scour archaeological sites there. Vash reappeared in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Q-Less" two years later, in which episode she mistook for an artifact an "egg", which subsequently hatched as a lifeform at the end of the episode.

Romulan subcommander who was to replace Senator Kimara Cretak at a weekly Deep Space Nine meeting while she attended a conference on Romulus in 2375. Shortly afterward, Velal was promoted to general. After all Federation and Romulan ships were rendered powerless by a Breen energy dissipation weapon, Velal was genuinely dismayed to learn that only the Klingons stood between the alliance and total defeat at the hands of the Dominion. Near the end of the war, when the Dominion pulled all its forces back to Cardassian space, Velal's instinct was to merely "contain them within their perimeter" instead of attacking. He changed his mind when Vice Admiral William Ross, Captain Benjamin Sisko and General Martok decide on the latter.[10]

V'Ger's story is also expanded upon in the novelization, and various novels, most notably William Shatner's The Return. Some novels, comics, and videogames have strongly implied that V'Ger was the progenitor of the Borg, or was encountered by the Borg culture's direct ancestors. The Gene Roddenberry-authored novelization of the movie consistently named "V'Ger" with the spelling "Vejur" throughout the novelization's text,[11] to preserve the surprise ending.

Enterprise," Kirk replied, feeling somewhat foolish saying this to what looked like his own navigator. Was Ilia really this incredibly sensuous?
    "I have been programmed to observe and record normal functions of the carbon-based units infesting U.S.S. Enterprise."
    "Programmed by whom?" asked Kirk. "It is important we communicate with them."
    The probe seemed puzzled. "If you require a designation, I was programmed by Vejur.
  12. ^ Note: "Colonel" is an anomalous rank in the Starfleet hierarchy, never used before or since this movie. In the U.S. Armed Forces, "colonel" is an Army, Marine Corps and Air Force rank that is equivalent to a Navy "captain". Colonel West, however, did not wear a Starfleet captain's insignia, but rather an admiral's. Thus, the whole rank/costuming situation was a mess.
  13. ^ Casting Note: Byron Morrow also played Admiral Komack in "Amok Time". In the interest of continuity, some Star Trek fans have suggested that, since "Westervliet" was never named in dialogue, it can be disregarded and "Komack" retconned in its place. However, "Westervliet" is identified in the script and in the ending credits, so, regardless of the oversight regarding the actor's two roles, canon demands that "Westervliet" should stand.
  14. ^ Conjecture: Because Michael Dorn was cast in this role, it is generally assumed that Colonel Worf was the father of Mogh, who would later sire Starfleet lieutenant/lieutenant commander Worf and Klingon commander/captain Kurn in the 24th century.
