Ensign Golwat was a female Bolian Starfleet officer assigned to USS Voyager under Captain Kathryn Janeway in the 2370s during its time in the Delta Quadrant. She was assigned to at least two divisions aboard the ship, the sciences division and later the operations division.

She had lunch in the mess hall shortly after the Voyager left Deep Space 9 and set course for the Badlands. (VOY: "Caretaker")

Golwat had a second glass of Neelix's new Enthraxic citrus peel-orange juice blend. In trying to convince Lieutenant Tuvok to try it, Neelix noted she never has seconds of any serving. Although Tuvok suggested that Golwat liked it because the Bolian tongue has a cartilaginous lining that could tolerate the strongest acids, he would admit he was wrong about the juice after sampling it, describing it as "impressive." (VOY: "Flashback")

In 2374, Golwat was among the crewmembers in the mess hall who received a letter from home that had been transmitted from the Alpha Quadrant over the Hirogen communications network. (VOY: "Hunters")

She was part of a Maquis meeting in the mess hall in 2377. (VOY: "Repression")

Also in 2377, she was brainwashed by the Quarren after they irradiated the Voyager and forced the evacuation of her crew. She, along with most of the rest of the crew spent approximately three weeks in the largest city on Quarra, their memories were altered and they were unaware that they had been kidnapped. (VOY: "Workforce") She would later be fraternizing with Ashmore in Umali's bar. (VOY: "Workforce, Part II")

In 2404 of an alternate timeline, Golwat attended the tenth anniversary USS Voyager reunion party in Admiral Kathryn Janeway's apartment. She had several drinks and talked to fellow Starfleet officers. (VOY: "Endgame")
