Marla E. Finn was a Starfleet ensign (serial number: CU-461-095), a Human native of Mars, the daughter of Ellen and William R. Finn. Her birth was recorded as med file #EP-301-2, and she graduated Starfleet Academy in San Francisco on stardate 40591.5.

She had an average efficiency rating of 8.9, and was a specialist rating 2 in warp field stabilizers. She received the Jalhal Award for warp field studies on stardate 40632.7, when she was assigned to USS Silversides.

After serving aboard Silversides, Finn was assigned to Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. There she assisted in the warp engine local control systems installation aboard the USS Enterprise-D, during its construction in 2362.

Marla Finn and William Hodges

Marla Finn caught in a fateful embrace

During this time, she became romantically involved with Walter Pierce, but also had an affair with William Hodges. All three went missing; Starfleet noted her disappearance from Utopia Planitia on stardate 40987.2, but the Starfleet OSHC investigation ended without result on stardate 40999.4, the year prior to the ship's launch.

It was not learned until late-2370 that she and her male friend had been killed by Pierce, who had caused a plasma explosion out of jealousy and then threw himself into the plasma stream. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder")

Marla E. Finn was played by regular background actress and Marina Sirtis' stand-in Nora Leonhardt, who was credited as Woman in the end credits.
An okudagram readout of Finn's personnel file was displayed on a viewscreen that Deanna Troi was studying. Some of the facts could be called into question since Troi was involved in a very detailed hallucination when the data was shown. This could explain why Finn was promoted to ensign on a stardate that indicated a time period years after her death, and why she was born on a stardate that might indicate she was only seven years old.
