She was working in engineering during Dr. Leah Brahms' visit in 2367. She assisted Brahms in collating a list of modifications that Geordi La Forge made to the Enterprise's engines. She also helped the doctor find a file on the ship's original specifications, which included a holographic program that incorporated Brahms' personality profile, created by La Forge a year earlier. After Brahms had left to run the program, Pavlik informed La Forge about her whereabouts.
She later assisted in the attempt to get rid of a spaceborne organism known as "Junior" that had attached itself to the ship. She monitored the power drop as La Forge attempted to decompress the shuttlebay to force it off. Riker ordered Pavlikto shut down the engines rather than allow the auto-shutdown to enact.
