She was talking to Kashimuro Nozawa in the mess hall when Neelix gratulated Tuvok to his Kal Rekk. Later, she was among the Starfleet officers in Chez Sandríne who participated in the betting pool led by Tom Paris. She was also present when Commander Chakotay stopped the betting pool. (VOY: "Meld")
She greeted The Doctor while she passed sickbay. The Doctor, who was at the time malfunctioning, began to follow Brooks as she made her way to the turbolift. Unknown to her at the time, as Brooks traveled aboard the turbolift to deck 10, The Doctor stood behind her plotting his move of malcontent against her. Fortunately, Brooks was saved when Tom Paris entered the turbolift and unknowingly interrupted The Doctor's plans. (VOY: "Darkling")
Brooks visited the Paxau Resort when Kes experienced one of her timeshifts and witnessed the Krenim attack on Voyager. Later, in the normal timeline, she attended the party for Kes at the Paxau Resort holoprogram. (VOY: "Before and After")
In an alternate timeline, Brooks was the room mate of Seven of Nine and greeted Seven when she passed her in a corridor.

Ensign Brooks was portrayed by Sue Henley throughout the run of Star Trek: Voyager. Henley was also the main stand-in for Kathryn Janeway actress Kate Mulgrew and previously appeared as a command officer in the second and third season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Henley was credited as "Ensign" in the end credits of the episode "Darkling". Later, in "Year of Hell", she was credited as "Ensign Brooks" and had one word of dialogue, "Seven". The call sheet for this day of filming, Thursday 14 August 1997, is also listing her as "Ensign Brooks" with a makeup call at 8:00 am and a set call at 10:00 am. Because Henley filmed her scene on Paramount Stage 9 and had to prepare for this appearance, fellow stand-in Susan Lewis worked as stand-in for Mulgrew that day.
According to an interview with Sue Henley, she did little background work on the first season because of her strong likeness to Kate Mulgrew. Occasionally, she wore a wig, which she described as a "hideous black dead-rat-looking wig."
