Silva La Forge was a command division officer in Starfleet, and the mother of one son, Geordi, and one daughter, Ariana. Her husband, exozoologist Edward M. La Forge, served as a sciences division officer in Starfleet.

Young Geordi spent time with both his parents as a child, sometimes separately. For a time, Geordi lived with Edward while he studied invertebrates in the Modean system. On other occasions, Geordi would instead be away from Edward, on outposts near the Romulan Neutral Zone with mother Silva. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")

In 2340, La Forge and her husband helped Geordi get out of a fire he got caught in. After this, Geordi wouldn't let Edward and Silva get out of earshot. (TNG: "Hero Worship")

By 2369, she held the rank of captain and was the commanding officer of the USS Hera. The vessel went missing in 2370, and Silva and the rest of the vessel's crew were listed as missing in action. Subsequent search missions by starships USS Noble and USS Excelsior reveal no trace of the ship's whereabouts or fate. She was survived by her husband and children. (TNG: "Interface")

Captain La Forge was played by Madge Sinclair, also known for her portrayal of the unnamed Saratoga captain in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. It was her last of four roles in which she portrayed LeVar Burton's on-screen mother.
The personnel file for Geordi seen onscreen in "The Next Phase" lists his mother's name as Alvera K. La Forge, but was contradicted by this later name for her established in the script of "Interface."
