Strom was one of three doctors that Phlox approached to see if a cure for Pa'nar Syndrome had been discovered or if at least progress could be made in slowing its affects, claiming his interest was due to the disease being similar to a Denobulan illness called thymic sclerosis and that his research was for a colleague on Denobula. In reality, he was attempting to find a cure for T'Pol, who had contracted Pa'nar Syndrome through a mind meld. Upon learning the truth, Strom and the other doctors refused to help and, because of the Vulcan prejudice towards mind-melders, threatened to have T'Pol recalled to Vulcan. (ENT: "Stigma")
Strom was played by the late Bob Morrisey. His name comes from the script.
In the final draft script of "Stigma", Strom was described as "late 40's" and "an officious and conservative administrator; he's dressed in robes." Also, Strom was cited, in ultimately unused dialogue from that script, as having been the person who had informed CaptainArcher that T'Pol was being recalled to Vulcan.  In the final edit of the episode, though, it is left vague as to which of the three Vulcan doctors relayed this news to Archer.
