Background information

  • Wallace was seen wearing a red command division uniform three times, in the scenes set in 2364 from "All Good Things", in "The Hunted" and "The Wounded". In all other appearances, he wore operations/security yellow or was seen in civilian garb.
  • Wallace was named after script typist Jana Wallace, who worked on TNG, DS9 and VOY. His homeplanet of Altair IV was suggested by Mike Okuda and Guy Vardaman and is a reference to Forbidden Planet, a favorite of both Okuda's and Vardaman's. His last name was first used in "Descent, Part I", and his first name was legible on screen in "Eye of the Beholder". His name was written "Darian Wallace" in the Star Trek Encyclopedia and the CCG but is clearly listed as "Darien Wallace" in his personnel file in "Eye of the Beholder".
  • The personnel file seen by Counselor Troi appeared during a dream sequence; this might explain some inaccuracies in the stardates.


  • According to his card in the Star Trek Customizable Card Game, "Ensign Darian Wallace is representative of Starfleet security officers" and "held numerous positions aboard the USS Enterprise." His speciality is anthropology and he has a ranking of 7 in integrity, 5 in cunning and 6 in strength. [1]
