The same year, she was knocked unconscious by a Ferengi gas canister that was taken aboard Enterprise. Trip Tucker found her in the mess hall next to her salad. (ENT: "Acquisition")

She visited the mess hall again when Commander Tucker entered to catch up with the Kantare Liana. Rossi was carrying her meal. (ENT: "Oasis")


Crewman Rossi joined fellow crewmembers for another Earth film in the mess hall but the film was not presented because of the technical problems caused by a symbiotic lifeform which came aboard after contact with a Kreetassan ship. Rossi sat next to Commander Tucker and was eating popcorn. (ENT: "Vox Sola")

Background information

Crewman Rossi was portrayed by regular background actress Hilde Garcia who received no credit for her appearances. She was identified through her official site and the dialogue in the episode "The Crossing". Garcia herself mixed up several behind the scenes memories with wrong episode titles on her synopsis page regarding earlier episodes. Rossi was named in honor of Enterprise associate producer and longtime staffer Dave Rossi. (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 238))

Garcia was also part of the extended deleted scene in sickbay from the episode "Minefield", which was later available on the ENT Season 2 DVD, and was among the background performers who appeared in several more deleted scenes throughout the run of the show. She was also featured in the ENT Season 2 DVD special feature "Outtakes", which shows several bloopers from the episode "Vanishing Point" in the mess hall.
