For the similarly named Romulan, please see Ramdha.

Lieutenant Rahda was a 23rd century Starfleet officer assigned to the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk.

In 2268, Rahda took over the helm for Hikaru Sulu after he was assigned to the landing party that transported down to the Kalandan outpost. (TOS: "That Which Survives")

Rahda was played by actress Naomi Pollack. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 220) misspelled her name as "Rhada" in her entry.
The Pocket TOS novels A Choice of Catastrophes, That Which Divides and The Face of the Unknown give her the first name Manjula, while Allegiance in Exile, Purgatory's Key, and Agents of Influence name her Naomi Rahda, after the actress who played her. Provenance of Shadows gives her first name as Sitara. Past Prologue calls her Tora Rhada.
Rahda wore what appears to be a bindi, a decorative dot mostly associated with Hinduism, but also used in Jainism, and Buddhism, or worn for purely decorative purposes.
