Gia was a female Barkonian and the daughter of a village magistrate on the planet Barkon IV, Garvin. Her mother had died in 2369.

In 2370, she befriended a malfunctioning Lieutenant Commander Data who had come to her planet to retrieve radioactive remains of a Federation deep space probe that had crash landed on the planet. He was suffering from amnesia when he arrived in her village and she gave him the name "Jayden." After falling ill from radiation poisoning, Gia, along with the rest of her town, were cured by Data's laborious efforts.

When a disguised Commander William T. Riker and Doctor Beverly Crusher came to town inquiring about Data's location, it was Gia who explained that he had been attacked and subsequently buried after his "death". (TNG: "Thine Own Self")

Gia was played by actress Kimberly Cullum.
The costume worn by Cullum was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]
