Personally I'm more interested in the backstory of the background character Diana Giddings
. She's in practically every episode from season one and some of the later seasons.
I immediately remembered who Ensign Gates was when I read her name, even though her pic isn't posted in this thread. But, even after seeing the Diana Giddings article in Memory Alpha, I can only semi-remember her. The end of the article said:
The Star Trek Encyclopedia gives her name as "Dianna Giddings" but the sign on her door reads more like "Diana".
Was her name even mentioned in an episode? Did she ever have any lines? BTW, does anyone know which "door" is mentioned in my quote?
Also, I love Gate's "memorable quote" that Memory Alpha
mentions.... "Course plotted, sir."
