Paltani was a Takret lieutenant and first officer of the Takret starship that attempted to seize the Enterprise NX-01 in 2152.
Paltani brought status reports to his captain, and was the first to suggest that they leave the ship when they found out the crew was still aboard. He took over at the communications and science station before abandoning Enterprise. (ENT: "The Catwalk")
Lt. Paltani was played by Brian Cousins.
His name wasn't scripted; in the final draft script of "The Catwalk", he was consistently referred to merely as a Takret lieutenant.
