Talza was a female Rigellian and the in 2254 the aide to the Rigellian minister Etashnan.

Talza was a traditionalist and resented changes to Rigellian society brought about in the build up to Rigel VII's admittance into the Federation. In response she became involved in a conspiracy on the planet which lead to a coup by the Rigellian warrior caste; the Kaylar. On the night of the uprising Talza was able to draw Captain Christopher Pike of the USS Enterprise into an ambush at the Zemtar fortress, then whilst Pike fought a Kaylar Talza made her exit to check on a transmitter in the Rigellian Parliamentary Assembly which was putting out a jamming signal blocking communications from Starfleet personal on Rigel with the Enterprise above. She reached the transmitter just as Pike's yeoman, Dermot Cusack, had finished disabling it, and in response murdered him.

Talza was taken into custody by Starfleet security personal, her eventual fate remains unknown, but her actions were successful in preventing Rigel VII's admittance into the Federation. (EV comic: "Our Dearest Blood")

Shortly after when the Talosians held Captain Pike captive they created a mental illusion of the Rigel VII incident replacing Talza with their Human captive Vina who instead of departing the scene at the earliest opportunity remained to be the captain's damsel in distress. (TOS episode: "The Cage")
