Alice Rawlings is the actress who played Jame Finney in the Star Trek: The Original Series first season episode "Court Martial".

She filmed her scenes (including a deleted scene in main engineering) on Monday 3 October 1966, Wednesday 5 October 1966, Friday 7 October 1966 and Monday 10 October 1966 at Desilu Stage 9 and Stage 10.

Rawlings' early work included starring in title role of the play Alice with Kisses, a musical version of Alice in Wonderland, performed at Northwestern University in Evansville, IL in the spring of 1964. She made her first television appearance in the fall of the same year, when she began playing the recurring role of another Alice in five episodes of The Patty Duke Show, on which William Schallert was a regular cast member. Her role lasted through the spring of 1965.

In November 1966, Rawlings appeared in an episode of NBC's Western series, The Virginian, Schallert and Chuck Courtney also appeared in the same episode. The same month, she appeared on Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theater. Around this time, Rawlings had suffered painful injuries in a fall from a horse in The Hero.

Her role on Star Trek was her last television appearance, and after a supporting role in the 1968 comedy film Where Angels Go Trouble Follows!, she seemingly retired from the business.

Nearly five decades later, her name was honored as the name of a Starfleet officer appearing in the alternate reality film Star Trek (2009).
