Jarod Maher was a Human male who served as director of the Ennis research outpost in 2371.

Following the USS Enterprise-D's arrival in orbit of Heaven, Maher contacted the starship and invited Captain Jean-Luc Picard and an away team to the outpost to meet with Doctor Aaron and himself. He then met Picard in the outpost's shuttlebay and accompanied them to the main conference room to meet with Aaron. During conference, Maher sought Picard's help in smoothing relations between him and the colony administrators on Chandra colony - who had grown concerned about establishing a research outpost so soon after the colony had been established - by extolling the virtues of scientific knowledge and all the work they were doing at Ennis.
