Fields was a male Human Starfleet enlisted crewmember in the 23rd century. He served aboard the USS Enterprise between 2265 and 2267 under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, during the historic five-year mission.
In 2266, he was assigned to the forward phaser control room as a phaser specialist. When the Enterprise went to condition red upon news of a Romulan Bird-of-Prey attacking Outpost 4, all crewmembers reported to battle stations. Brenner and Fields reported on the readiness of the weapon batteries. He was injured by radiation burns, when the Enterprise destroyed an atomic weapon. He reported to the sickbay for treatment. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")

Background information Edit
Fields was played by John Arndt, apparently a regular extra during TOS Season 1. He had previously played murdered Crewman Sturgeon in TOS: "The Man Trap". Although not referenced on screen, Paul Schneider's script for "Balance of Terror" named this character (along with Brenner) as a phaser specialist. His later character appearances were all unnamed. Assuming they were all the same character, Mr. Fields might have been a career generalist (similar to Mr. Kyle and Mr. Leslie) since he appeared in a command division yellow jumpsuit in "Balance of Terror," a command yellow officer uniform in "Dagger of the Mind," and red security uniform in "Miri."
