Service history Edit
Giddings was working in engineering when Q appeared for the first time aboard the Enterprise-D in 2364, and was later seen in a marketplace in Farpoint Station on Deneb IV. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")
She was affected by polywater intoxication like the rest of the crew. After working on the bridge and on the master systems display, she was seen kissing a male crewmember in main engineering. (TNG: "The Naked Now")
Later that year, she was present in main engineering when Kosinski and The Traveler were conducting experiments aboard the Enterprise-D and transported the ship to the end of the universe. (TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before")
She was manning an aft console of the bridge when Captain Picard was under the control of a Ferengi thought maker and prepared to attack the Enterprise-D with the USS Stargazer (TNG: "The Battle") and again a little later when the crew encountered Q for the second time. (TNG: "Hide and Q")
She walked through the corridors, close to one of the docking ports of the ship when the USS Enterprise-D was docked at Starbase 74, shortly before everyone had to abandon the ship because of a faked warp core breach simulated by the Bynars. (TNG: "11001001")
Early that year she was having a short affair with Thadiun Okona when he was aboard the Enterprise-D as his ship, the Erstwhile, was undergoing repairs. She welcomed him in her quarters, very lightly dressed. (TNG: "The Outrageous Okona")
Giddings was treating several wounded patients during the ship's system problems in 2365. She was also present when Doctor Pulaski chewed at Ensign Wright and helped a doctor who was helpless without the medical technology. (TNG: "Contagion")
She was part of the medical emergency team which transported the wounded Romulan officer Patahk to sickbay by using an anti-grav lift. Later, Giddings was working as a nurse in sickbay. (TNG: "The Enemy")
In an alternate timeline, created when the USS Enterprise-C traveled back in time, Giddings was working in sickbay where she treated the wounded Enterprise-D crewmembers. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise")
She was chatting with Deanna Troi in a corridor shortly after Data was abducted by Kivas Fajo and was walking past Troi and Worf in a corridor shortly after the biennial Trade Agreements Conference. (TNG: "The Most Toys", "Ménage à Troi")
Giddings was walking along a corridor in mid 2367, smiling, when she saw Data, who was in costume as Ebenezer Scrooge and again walking along a corridor when Doctor Crusher told Captain Picard about strange occurrences in sickbay, due to the Paxans erasing their memories of the preceding twenty-four hours. (TNG: "Devil's Due", "Clues")
She was a friend of Keiko O'Brien's. When Data, Miles O'Brien and Deanna Troi were taken over by Ux-Mal prisoners, she was taking care of the O'Briens' newborn baby, Molly, while Keiko was taken hostage by the Ux-Mal in 2368. (TNG: "Power Play")
She beamed down to Maranga IV, together with Armstrong, Alfonse Pacelli, Russell, and other Enterprise-D crewmembers to attend the Kot'baval Festival. She later enjoyed a drink with a fellow crewmember in Ten Forward and left the bar when Worf started yelling at K'mtar. (TNG: "Firstborn")
Background information Edit
She was seen in many TNG episodes, in the first season usually wearing the skant uniform style and working in engineering. Her name was never spoken in dialogue – the script of "The Outrageous Okona" calls her "A well-endowed female crewmember" ; in the script of "Power Play" she is called a "supernumerary" – ; but was given on her door sign in the former episode. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd edition, p. 172) incorrectly spelled her name as "Dianna Giddings".
Mendell reprised this role for the final Webster episode, titled "Webtrek", in 1989 during the second season of The Next Generation. She shared her bridge scenes with Michael Dorn, James G. Becker, and Dexter Clay.
