Finn, Marla E.

Starfleet officer who helped build the Enterprise-D at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2363. She was romantically involved with Lt. Walter Pierce, but also had an affair with another man. Starfleet believed Finn had been killed in a plasma explosion at Utopia Planitia on stardate 40987.2, about a year prior to the ship's launch. It was not learned until years later that she and her male friend had been killed by Pierce, who had caused the plasma explosion out of jealousy.
