Ensign Inman was a male Human who served as a Starfleet operations division officer during the mid-23rd century.

He was born in New Angeles on Terra Luna, and joined Starfleet to explore and learn.

During the Klingon War of 2256-57, Inman was assigned to a ground unit on the heavily contested moon of J'Gal, under the overall command of Lieutenant Va'Al Trask. After one battle, he suffered a severe chest wound and briefly died on Doctor Joseph M'Benga's operating table; he was resuscitated after his heart was manually stimulated by Nurse Christine Chapel.

After recovering from his injuries, Inman's platoon was ordered to lead a massive ground assault near Colony Athos to occupy the Klingons while Starfleet special forces attempted to assassinate General Dak'Rah and his warlords. Knowing that this was a suicide mission, M'Benga offered to put Inman down for mandatory convalescence, but Inman replied that he would rather rejoin his platoon. He, along with Trask and many others, were ultimately killed in what would be the final battle before the Federation evacuated J'Gal. In Inman's case, his throat was slashed by a Klingon blade. (SNW: "Under the Cloak of War")

Ensign Inman was played by Brendan Jeffers.

His name was not spoken on screen, but appeared on the computer display during his surgery and in the episode's end credits.
