Ensign Perim was assigned as flight controller aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise-E in early 2375, and was at the conn when the Enterprise led an assault against space station Sentok Nor. (TNG novel: The Battle of Betazed)
She was one of few bridge officers on board Enterprise, while Enterprise and the USS Defiant tried to stop unmanned weapons drones from laying waste to the surface of Trill. (ST - Divided We Fall comic: "United We Stand")
In 2379, Perim remote-piloted the IKS Taj over Tezwa which allowed the six tactical strike teams on the Taj to get close enough to transport into the atmosphere and parachute down to the surface before the Taj was destroyed. After this, since Riker, Data, and Vale were all on the mission, Perim took over as the Enterprise's acting first officer. (TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time to Kill)
Perim left Starfleet following the Enterprise's mission to Tezwa in 2379. She left along with Lieutenant Jim Peart, whom she was romantically involved with at the time. (TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time to Heal)
