Teresa Ross was a female Human Starfleet yeoman in the 23rd century.


Trelane and Gothos[]

In 2267, Ross was assigned to the USS Enterprise under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. She became worried when Kirk was abducted to the planet Gothos by Trelane, a member of the Q Continuum, and told the captain as much when he was briefly rescued by Commander Spock. Moments later, she and several other members of the Enterprise's bride crew were abducted to Gothos for Trelane's further amusement. (TOS episode: "The Squire of Gothos")

Ross dancing with Trelane.

Trelane was particularly interested in Ross, whom he compared to Helen of Troy, quoting from Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus. While Lieutenant Nyota Uhura played the piano with the benefit of skill imparted by Trelane, Ross become his unwilling dancing partner. Within moments, the Q transformed her Starfleet uniform into an ornate panniered 18th century flowered silk gown. (TOS episode & novelization: The Squire of Gothos)

In a gambit to overcome Trelane, Kirk pretended jealousy over the Q's affections for Ross, and challenged him to a duel for the right to show her romantic attention. The Gambit partially succeeded; Kirk destroyed the mechanical mirror Trelane was using to maintain the environment on Gothos, and the captive Enterprise crew were released, but the Q declared that he would have revenge on them, particularly Kirk. Ross shortly resumed her duties, still wearing the ball gown, before requesting permission to quickly change. (TOS episode: "The Squire of Gothos")

The ship was soon chased by Trelane and Gothos, but Kirk, who beamed down to the planet alone and demanded that the Q forswear vengeance on the Enterprise and the rest of its crew, including Ross. Trelane sentenced Kirk to death, and attempted to take his revenge, before being thwarted by two more Q - his parents. (TOS episode: "The Squire of Gothos")

Ross then left Starfleet due to the incident with Trelane at some point. In 2290, she had become a Federation Justice. Ross was then transported out of her chamber to Captain Kirk's San Francisco apartment to help in Trelane's study of mating. (TOS comic: "A Little Man-to-Man Talk")
