Lieutenant Commander Giotto was a male Human Starfleet officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served in the operations division aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during a historic five-year mission that starship undertook. He served as one of the ship's security officers, who functioned as a security chief in 2267.
That year, assisting Captain Kirk and Commander Spock, Giotto assembled security troops and armed them with type 2 phasers. His detail was assigned the task of searching for a creature that had been attacking the colony on Janus VI and had killed fifty-one miners. (TOS: "The Devil in the Dark")

Background information Edit
Giotto was played by actor Barry Russo, where he was described in the script simply as "a large, muscular man."
In a common mistake made on costume insignia during TOS Season 1, Giotto was referred to as "lieutenant commander," yet wore the braid of a full commander. This mistake was also made on Spock and Benjamin Finney's uniforms.
The novels Wagon Train to the Stars, From History's Shadow, and Purgatory's Key give him the first name "Barry". The novel A Choice of Catastrophes gives him the first name "Salvatore". The novel Past Prologue gives him the first name "Antonio".
