Sariel Rager was a female Human 24th century Starfleet command division officer and helmsman. By 2367, she was an ensign and served aboard the USS Enterprise-D.

In 2367, Rager was at the conn of the Enterprise-D when the ship encountered a swarm of a spaceborne species, of which Junior was a member. (TNG: "Galaxy's Child")

She was at the conn when the ship became trapped in a Tyken's Rift. Lack of dreams caused her to forget how to operate the conn, so she was ordered to sickbay by Commander Riker and replaced by Ensign Lin. (TNG: "Night Terrors")

In 2369, after a Dyson sphere was discovered, she piloted the Enterprise-D out of the sphere by executing a ninety-degree roll to slip through the quickly closing bay doors. (TNG: "Relics")

As evidenced by the first draft script of "Relics", Rager's part was actually written originally for a male ensign named Sousa. The part was rewritten for Rager by the time the final draft of the script was issued. [1]

Following disturbing behavior at the conn, caused by her repressed memory of being abducted by Solanogen-based lifeforms, Rager was abducted by the lifeforms once again, and was experimented on in their laboratory. She was saved by Commander Riker as the Enterprise crew disrupted the creatures' link to the native dimension. (TNG: "Schisms")



Background information[]

Rager was played by actress Lanei Chapman.


The Star Trek: Titan book series sees now-Lieutenant Rager transferring to the USS Titan following the events of Nemesis, having remained with the Enterprise crew following the transition to the USS Enterprise-E.

The novel Death in Winter had stated that Rager was promoted to lieutenant commander after Nemesis, taking a post as second officer aboard the USS Hedderjin, under the command of Picard's longtime Stargazer XO, Gilaad Ben Zoma, but this event was later overridden in favor of her role on Titan. [2]
