Lieutenant James was a male Human Starfleet bridge officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during the late 2260s.

In 2266, James served in the operations division and was present on a corridor when the Enterprise encountered Balok's cube. He later assisted Montgomery Scott in the transporter room with beaming Kirk, McCoy and Bailey over to the Fesarius' pilot vessel. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

Later that year, he was present on the bridge at the life support systems station, when the Enterprise chased Harry Mudd's stolen spaceship through an asteroid field. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")

Later, he served at the engineering station on the bridge during the Enterprise's mission to Alfa 177. He was present during a confrontation on the bridge, where in a fit of rage, the "evil" Kirk ordered James and Farrell to apprehend the "good" Kirk. (TOS: "The Enemy Within")

The following year he transferred to the command division and was promoted to lieutenant.

He was present on the bridge when the Enterprise visited Janus VI. (TOS: "The Devil in the Dark")

He was also on the bridge when the Enterprise encountered the Greek god Apollo near Pollux IV, the same year. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

Later that year, he was also present on the bridge when the Enterprise found the disabled USS Constellation. (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine")




James was played by an unknown actor. (The same actor also appeared as a Starfleet officer in "Wolf in the Fold", wearing an old style turtleneck uniform.)

His character was identified by name in "The Enemy Within".
