In 1957, female Vulcan officer T'Mir, disguised as a Human, began working at Maggie's tavern while T'Mir and her comrades secretly awaited rescue from her own people.
Maggie wished to put her son through college. However, she couldn't afford to do so and began collecting money in a jar to help pay towards it. T'Mir assisted them by selling a patch of "velcro" from her crashed ship and giving the money to Maggie for her son's college education.
Maggie became romantically involved with one of T'Mir's associates, Mestral, and was a key factor in him deciding to remain on Earth when the others were rescued. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")
In the final draft script of "Carbon Creek", Maggie was initially described as "attractive, late-thirties." The next sentences commented, "Maggie's a single mom raising a teenaged son, but she's managed to hang on to her upbeat attitude and warm sense of humor. She's a bright light in this otherwise grim place." Maggie was played by actress Ann Cusack.
