I watched "The Enemy Within" the other night, and she's nowhere to be found in that one either, except for one voice-over intercom line.

I cannot remember, was any attempt made to communicate with the DM ever made?

If not, maybe they didn't want any viewer to ask; why don't they just ask it to stop what it's doing? by sweeping the communications officer out of sight.

Palmer was the Communications Officer for that episode. She handled the communications between the Enterprise and Constellation as well as delivering damage reports to Mister Spock.

A few lines fairly early on:

SPOCK: Unable to raise Starfleet Command due to heavy subspace interference.
Quote:

SPOCK [OC]: No evidence of life, subspace interference level incredibly high.
Quote:

KIRK [OC]: Kirk here.
SPOCK: Captain, we've been attacked. The transporter is damaged. We're taking evasive action.
PALMER: Mister Spock, communication's damaged. We're unable to override interference.
[Constellation Auxiliary Control]
SPOCK [OC]: Damage in communications, Captain. Interference will (static)
KIRK: Spock? Spock? Come in, Spock. Spock? We're stuck, blind, and deaf.
and further references to interference throughout seem to have the effect of reducing the communications officer's role to that of a local switchboard operator. Perhaps someone suggested that this would be a good time for Nichols to take a week off?
