Roger Lemli was a 23rd century Human man who served in Starfleet aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise during the 2260s, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. During Kirk's historic five-year mission, Lemli served the operations division as both an engineer and as a security crewman.
Lemli generally served in the engineering section during the earlier part of his tour aboard Enterprise, but as time went by he more and more often found himself filling roles on the ship's security team.
Lemli was present on the bridge at the engineering station on stardate 3468 when the ship was snared by the hand of Apollo, one of the Beings identified with Earth's early Greek gods. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")
Roger Lemli assisted in main engineering around stardate 3541.9, when Chief Engineer Scott asked him to help with repairs after the space probe known as Nomad tampered with the Enterprise warp engines. (TOS episode: "The Changeling")
Lemli was assigned to transporter room detail on stardates 4202 and 4211 during the transports to and from the damaged USS Constellation and the planet Neural. (TOS episodes: "The Doomsday Machine", "A Private Little War")

The character of Roger Lemli was played by actor Roger Holloway, a regular extra player during the second and third seasons of the original Star Trek series. He appeared in 33 episodes without screen credit for the role, and only spoke once, a brief piece of dialog in TOS episode: "Turnabout Intruder".
This character's surname was first mentioned in TOS episode: "The Lights of Zetar" when the captain addressed him as "Mr. Lemli." He was called by his surname in "The Savage Curtain" and "Turnabout Intruder", although in "The Savage Curtain" the dialogue is unclear and has been misheard as other names by fans.
The ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia mentions the name Lemli's origins—the name Lemli was shared William Shatner's vanity license plate "LEMLI" and production company, Lemli Music. This word originated as a combination of the names of Shatner's daughters, Leslie, Melanie and Lisabeth.
