Hasn't Christie Golden said that Lyssa was the blonde extra at the transporter console in "Eye of the Needle"?
She said that after she created the character in her first novel, she saw a blonde transporter operator in that episode and wondered if it was a tribute (which it probably wasn't, given that the shows' makers were too busy making the shows to pay much attention to the books).

Also, I think she may have been misremembering which episode it was, because "Needle" aired a full year before her first novel was published, and the transporter-operator extra in that episode is dark-haired:
