The name was referenced once as doctor (on the Enterprise-D plaque) and once as ensign (on the Voyager crew manifest). It is possible they were the same person, or two similarly named individuals. If they were one and the same, it would seem Sternbach was not aboard Voyager when it was lost, as he was listed as contributing to later vessels, unless he made contributions to the later constructions before he was lost, and was listed on those plaques in absentia.
1. Sternbach's name was legible in two manifests, in '71 and '74, for the Voyager. 2. On the dedication plaques, which list ranks, the lowest rank so far seen is Captain. Throwback (talk) 10:01, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
