Ensign Rita Tannenbaum was a Starfleet engineer who served aboard Deep Space 9 and the USS Defiant in the 2370s.

Off duty, she visited Quark's bar when Pel made a business opportunity to Quark. (DS9: "Rules of Acquisition")

She was seated in front of Quark's bar on the second level of the Promenade when Quark and Odo were released from the security office and security aboard the station was back. (DS9: "Civil Defense")

In 2371, Tannenbaum was carrying a bag and walking behind Major Kira Nerys on the Promenade when Kira bumped into Thomas Riker. (DS9: "Defiant")

She stood next to Jadzia Dax on the Promenade when everyone was listening to Gowron's speech. (DS9: "Broken Link")

In 2373, the Defiant entered the atmosphere of a planet (later named "Gaia"), and discovered a settlement of their descendants from an alternate timeline. In the alternate timeline, the crew of the Defiant were sent back in time two hundred years, and stuck on the planet. In that alternate timeline, Rita Tannenbaum and Miles O'Brien (who'd finally come to terms with the fact that he'd never see his wife Keiko again) decided to marry, and have children. Among their descendants at the colony was a Miranda O'Brien and a young girl named Molly. However, when the Defiant failed to go back in time and fulfill its "destiny", the colony presumably ceased to exist. (DS9: "Children of Time")

Watching the Dominion convoy

She stood on the upper level of the Promenade and talked to a Bajoran deputy before she joined the crowd in front of the large windows where she watched the fifth Dominion convoy passing the Bajoran wormhole. When the Bajoran Militia personnel and the Bajoran civilians were evacuated from Deep Space 9, she stood by one of the airlocks and assisted them in boarding a transport to Bajor. Later, she was among the Starfleet personnel who boarded the Defiant when Starfleet abandoned the station. (DS9: "Call to Arms")

Off duty, she visited Quark's when a grown-up Molly O'Brien wounded the Markalian Madrat seriously by stabbing him a broken bottle into his chest. (DS9: "Time's Orphan")

In 2379, Tannenbaum attended the wedding of Commander William T. Riker and Deanna Troi in Alaska on Earth. She was talking to other guests and standing behind Guinan during Data's performance of "Blue Skies". (Star Trek Nemesis)

Rita Tannenbaum was portrayed by regular background actress Ivy Borg who appeared throughout the seven year run of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Assistant director Paul Lawrence told Borg that she was the person who was Rita Tannenbaum in "Children of Time".
