Zandra Taitt was a Starfleet officer who graduated from Starfleet Academy in 2369. (ST video game: Starship Creator)

She wrote her senior year thesis on Solar Dynamics, afterwards winning a prestigious posting as a Science officer to the USS Enterprise-D.

Six weeks into her commission during an encounter with a faction of non-collective Borg led by Lore, Ensign Taitt manned the tactical station under the command of (Doctor) Commander Beverly Crusher. She hesitantly held her post, and under orders, established a frequency shift firing pattern on a Borg starship.

When relieved of her position at tactical by Lieutenant Barnaby, Commander Crusher asked that she stay on the bridge at the science station.

When Commander Crusher took the Enterprise, protected by metaphasic shielding into a local star, it was Taitt's observations and expertise in Solar Dynamics that allowed her to use ship's phasers to trigger a solar flare - destroying the Borg. A move Commander Crusher christened the "Taitt Maneuver". (TNG episode: "Descent", novelization: Descent)
