"Connors, are you finished?"
– Leonard McCoy, 2266 ("Mudd's Women")

Connors was a male Human Starfleet crewman who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served in the command division aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during a historic five-year mission that starship undertook.

In 2266, Connors was assisting Doctor Leonard McCoy with making adjustments to one of the medical scanner's body function panels when Ruth Bonaventure entered sickbay. He was momentarily distracted by her beauty, as he was leaving, but his reverie was interrupted by Dr. McCoy, who questioned if he had completed his work yet. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")


Background information

Connors was an uncredited role played by Eddie Paskey, a regular extra who served as a set stand-in throughout the course of the original Star Trek series. "Mudd's Women" marked the only time when Paskey's character wore a generic green duty jumpsuit and was called Connors. This was due to the fact that Paskey's character did not have a set identity until he was called "Leslie" in "The Conscience of the King" and subsequent episodes.

Because the duty jumpsuit Connors wore had no indication of rank and was worn by both non-commissioned and commissioned officers. In the stage directions from the final draft script of "Mudd's Women", Connors was identified as "a crewman from maintenance".

Connors in "The Crier in Emptiness"

According to the comic book "The Crier in Emptiness", Connors was a navigator aboard the Enterprise who enjoyed solitude and quietness. He spoke with a heavy accent and could skillfully play the Edoan Elisiar, a musical instrument. By stardate 5444.9, he was a lieutenant and wore a sciences division uniform.

He was depicted in the comic book in some physically awkward poses for a Human, possibly indicating that the artist originally drew Arex, the Edosian navigator from Star Trek: The Animated Series. References to his name in speech balloons indicate that it was once several letters shorter, suggesting that he may or may not be the same Connors from "Mudd's Women".

The novel A Choice of Catastrophes reveals that McCoy had repeatedly mixed up Leslie with a navigator named Connors, including in the situation with Bonaventure in sickbay.
