You may also be looking for actor Tim Russ.

Lieutenant Russ was a male Human Starfleet officer who lived during the mid-23rd century. He served in the command division aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk, during a historic five-year mission that starship undertook.

In 2267, Russ was part of a damage control party that beamed over to the USS Constellation after it was discovered adrift and damaged, following an attack by a planet killer.

Upon beam-in, he noted that the Constellation's filtration systems were non-functional. Once the landing party split up, Russ joined Scott, Elliott and Washburn in main engineering to check and see if the ship's phaser banks had been fired.

While in engineering, the three ran a complete structural and control damage check, while Scott checked out the ship's engines.

Later, when the Enterprise was attacked by the planet killer, the damage control party became stranded aboard the Constellation when the Enterprise's transporters went down. In an effort to assist the Enterprise, Russ helped Scott in cross-circuiting the warp drive controls with the impulse engines.

Once repairs to the Enterprise's transporters were complete, the three members of the damage control party returned to their ship, while Scott and Kirk stayed behind to rig the Constellation for destruction within the planet killer. (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine")

Russ was played by actor Tim Burns; his name was not spoken on screen, but rather comes from the episode's end credits.
In the novel Present Tense, he was called "John Russ".
