"You have the majestic carriage and loveliness that could surely be traced back to the noblest of families."
– Thadiun Okona, 2365 ("The Outrageous Okona")

B.G. Robinson was a Human female who served as a Starfleet officer during the late-24th century.

In 2365, Robinson held the rank of lieutenant and served as a transporter chief aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D, under Captain Jean-Luc Picard. She beamed Thadiun Okona aboard when his vessel, the Erstwhile, was disabled.

When Okona asked Data for directions to section 806, he was looking for Robinson's quarters in room 08-0669. Robinson greeted him warmly and closed the door.

Later, she beamed Debin, Kushell, Yanar, and Benzan aboard and informed Lieutenant Worf that the delegations had no weapons with them. (TNG: "The Outrageous Okona")
