Burleigh's "deceased" wife

Lord Burleigh's wife

Lord Burleigh's late wife, whose shadow looms over the house

This woman was said to have acted as a buffer for Lord Burleigh's overbearing personality until her "death". According to her father and brother, Beatrice Burleigh missed her very much, and hadn't gotten over her death. Despite this, Beatrice claimed to have given her first sampler to her mother more recently. She later broke her mother's tea cup, one with flowers on it, and was sorry for having done so. When Lucille Davenport went to Lord Burleigh with her concerns about Beatrice's supposedly "false" belief that her mother was alive, he asked Davenport to drop it. (VOY: "Cathexis", "Learning Curve", "Persistence of Vision")

The Adventures of Captain Proton characters

Orion slave girls program

Three Orion slave girls were involved in a holoprogram that Quark recommended to an injured solid Odo. Odo was not interested in the least. (DS9: "The Begotten")

These Orions were only mentioned in dialogue.

Photons Be Free characters


American missionary

This American missionary was also a plastic surgeon, who at one point lived in China. In 1930, to explain "Chinese" Spock's oddly shaped ears to a police officer, James T. Kirk explained that as a child, the Vulcan had gotten his head caught in a mechanical rice picker and was treated by this doctor, who happened to be living nearby at the time. The officer, unswayed, continued to detain them. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

This missionary was only mentioned in dialogue.

Archer's brother

Jonathan Archer claimed to have a brother who owned a ranch down south of the Skagaran colony, and that he was headed there to look for work. When the bartender asked if his brother raised bluehorns, Archer asked him how he knew. The bartender explained that the land down south was good for little else. (ENT: "North Star")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Bashir's "patient"

To avoid having to linger and explain his over-watering and killing Keiko O'Brien's Idran hybrid bonsai trees, Julian Bashir told Miles O'Brien he had an operation to perform. When Miles asked who the patient was, Bashir said he'd find someone. Later, the doctor expressed his regrets to Keiko, saying he had left a patient on the operating table. (DS9: "The Assignment")

This patient was only mentioned in dialogue.
Given that this was supposed to be an excuse, it is likely that Bashir lied about having a patient on whom to operate.

Cusak's "attacker"

Trying to get the attention of a distracted Bashir, Lisa Cusak pretended to be attacked by an unknown lifeform. Alarmed, Bashir cried out to her, only to hear an unfamiliar voice claim to have eaten Cusak. This further disturbed him, and the voice continued, asking him why he cared that Cusak had died, as he hadn't been listening anyway. The "voice" was in fact Cusak herself, something Bashir realized after the "attacker" also remarked on his inattention. (DS9: "The Sound of Her Voice")

Distress caller

This colonist appeared to have sent a distress call from Barisa Prime, saying the colony there was under attack from Tzenkethi warships. In reality, the transmission was a Dominion trick. (DS9: "The Adversary")

This character appeared as an off-screen voiceover.

Ethan's parents

These Human parents of Ethan were supposedly taken from a research station on Miridian VI to Alpha Onias III, along with their son, by Tomalak and other Romulans. "Ethan" claimed that they had been taken away. In reality, there were no Romulans or Humans; "Ethan" was in fact, a boy named Barash whose mother had spirited him to the planet when his people were killed. (TNG: "Future Imperfect")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Iconian scientist

In an attempt to prove that Harry Kim would fall for anything, Tom Paris claimed to have been on USS Voyager's bridge when an Iconian scientist hailed the ship, claiming he had a trans-dimensional gateway that could take them anywhere in the galaxy. Kim didn't believe him until B'Elanna Torres "confirmed" his statement, saying she'd also been there when he contacted them and believed that they'd be home by the end of the week. Kim finally believed him, prompting Torres to declare that Paris was right about Kim. (VOY: "Inside Man")

This Iconian was only mentioned in dialogue.

Jakara's father

This Malcorian was the father of "Rivas Jakara". He had suffered from the same birth defect that Jakara did, which caused his hands to appear unlike those of most Malcorians. He was part of William T. Riker's improvised cover story while operating under the Malcorian alias of "Rivas Jakara" in 2367. (TNG: "First Contact")

This Malcorian was only mentioned in dialogue.
As "Jakara" claimed to have no family to notify, this man may have been dead by 2367, were he real.

Jakara's neighbors

"Jakara" also claimed that his phaser was a toy he was taking home as a present. When Berel challenged him, reminding Jakara that he had earlier claimed to have no family, he said it was for the child of a neighbor. (TNG: "First Contact")

These Malcorians were only mentioned in dialogue.

Kalara's crew

This crew was made up by Kalara in 2263 of the alternate reality as part of a story to lure the USS Enterprise to Altamid. (Star Trek Beyond)

This crew was only mentioned in dialogue.

Kapec's parents

These parents were invented by Flint in 2266 to explain Rayna Kapec's presence on the planet Holberg 917G. He claimed that they had died in an accident while working for him, and had made him her legal guardian shortly before their deaths.

In reality, Kapec was the latest in a series of androids created by Flint himself and as such, had no mother or father. (TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah")

These characters were only mentioned in dialogue.

Keel's brother

In 2364, when Walker Keel told Jean-Luc Picard that his brother introduced Beverly Crusher and Jack Crusher, Picard corrected him, saying he didn't have a brother, but rather two sisters named Anne and Melissa. The lie was Keel's attempt to get Picard to correct him, and by doing so, prove he really was who he claimed to be. (TNG: "Conspiracy")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Kodrak's son

This child was invented by Worf to legitimize his claims that a polaron emitter that Odo, operating under the Klingon alias Kodrak, had brought into the Hall of Warriors, was a tinghamut, a Vulcan children's toy seized in raids on the Archanis sector and therefore harmless. Worf told "Kodrak" to give the toy to his son, and the "Klingon" agreed. (DS9: "Apocalypse Rising")

This child was only mentioned in dialogue.

Little old lady from Leningrad

According to Pavel Chekov, a little old lady from Leningrad invented Scotch whisky. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

The alternate reality version of Chekov made essentially the same claim, though only specifying that the lady was from Russia. (Star Trek Beyond)

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
Because Chekov often made highly dubious claims about Russian innovations (for example, his invention of Ivan Burkoff), it is uncertain if the woman really existed.
Since Scotch is known to have existed since at least the 21st century, long before the alternate timeline diverged, it is assumed here that the lady was the same.

Native American legend characters

In 2372, in an effort to communicate his feelings to Kathryn Janeway, Chakotay made up an ancient legend that he claimed existed among his people. It pertained to an angry warrior finding peace by vowing to protect a woman chief and her tribe. (VOY: "Resolutions")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Rasmussen's colleague

While visiting the USS Enterprise-D in 2368 and passing himself off as a visitor from the future, Berlinghoff Rasmussen claimed to have visited a 22nd century vessel with a colleague. (TNG: "A Matter of Time")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
Though this was intended to be a tale of his going back in time, as he himself was from the 22nd century, he may have been thinking of a real person.

Risa kidney donor and thief

According to a well-known cautionary tale, a man met a beautiful woman on Risa who invited him over for the night. He woke up in the morning happy, but missing a kidney. (VOY: "Fury")

This brother was only mentioned in dialogue.

Tuvok initially dismissed his answer as having "no basis in reality", but he later suggested that an alternate solution was that the ensign ate the sundaes (Sundays). (VOY: "Riddles")

This ensign was only mentioned in dialogue.

Starfleet ghost

This man, wearing an old Starfleet uniform, was apparently seen by Kenicki while the USS Enterprise-D was trapped in a Tyken's Rift in 2367.
