He was part of the security team which accompanied Captain Archer after the main power went offline. They discovered two crewmembers, scanned by two unidentified aliens in a corridor on E-deck. Billy was ordered to follow these two aliens when they left for launch bay 2. (ENT: "Silent Enemy")

Billy had a meal in the mess hall and visited the same location later for the movie night, watching the film For Whom the Bell Tolls. (ENT: "Dear Doctor")

During the Vulcan confrontation he guarded Captain Sopek and his Vulcan officer on the bridge (ENT: "Shadows of P'Jem") and was again on duty in the launch bay when an away team left the ship to explore an uninhabited planet. (ENT: "Rogue Planet")

Billy was working in engineering when a Ferengi probe was brough aboard and made the crew unconscious. During the Ferengi robbery of the ship he was lying on the ground. (ENT: "Acquisition")

He was later asked by Trip Tucker to finish giving the Kantare Liana a tour of Enterprise after Trip was called away for a briefing with Captain Archer. (ENT: "Oasis")

2152

Billy was working in engineering when a symbiotic lifeform took over the control of several crewmembers and settled down in a cargo bay. (ENT: "Vox Sola")

Shortly after this First Contact he was on duty on the aft bridge while several crewmembers prepared for shore leave on Risa. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

Billy assisted Doctor Phlox in sickbay when a dozen of wounded crewmembers came in, after Enterprise hit a mine. (ENT: "Minefield") He also helped Doctor Phlox carrying Travis Mayweather after Captain Archer and T'Pol brought him back from the automated repair station. (ENT: "Dead Stop")

Billy served as launch bay operator when an away team returned from an alien planet (ENT: "The Communicator") and when the crew was forced to live at the catwalk while Enterprise passed a neutronic storm and took a group of renegade Takret aboard. During his time at the catwalk he joined fellow crewmembers for another movie night, watching Wages of Fear. (ENT: "The Catwalk")

He visited the mess hall while Enterprise was in orbit of Dekendi III, where a conference of the Interspecies Medical Exchange took place. (ENT: "Stigma")

The same year he served as security officer and guarded Malcolm Reed, who was possessed by a Wisp, to secured quarters after Reed bothered Hoshi Sato in her quarters. Later he and Crewman Haynem worked as security officers outside the mess hall and took orders from T'Pol to arrest the possessed Ensigns Cole and Rossi. He was also among the crewmembers who escaped to the catwalk until Doctor Phlox found a way to get rid of the Wisps. (ENT: "The Crossing")

2153

Billy brought several wounded aliens into the sickbay during a rescue mission for Asahf's species (ENT: "Judgment") and for several aliens from Xantoras. (ENT: "The Breach")

He attended the reception for the Vissians in the mess hall during the first contact with this species. (ENT: "Cogenitor")

2154

He conducted repairs in the corridors near Enterprise's sickbay following the Xindi attack at Azati Prime. (ENT: "Damage")

Billy suffered an injury during the attack by the Xindi near Azati Prime which required him to wear a neck brace. It was in this condition that he attended Captain Archer's empassioned speech in honor of the eighteen crewmembers who died in the attack. (ENT: "The Forgotten")

He was in the mess hall with fellow crewmembers while the Organian possessed Reed and Mayweather discuss chess. (ENT: "Observer Effect")

Billy was training in the ship's gym together with Ensign Mayweather and Lieutenant Reed while the three Orion women D'Nesh, Maras, and Navaar were aboard. (ENT: "Bound")

Background

Billy, who was first referenced by name in "Unexpected", and was later identified by name in "Oasis," was played by regular background performer Solomon Burke, Jr. His surname was not given in either reference, nor would he be credited for any of his roles until his final appearance in "These Are the Voyages...", where he was simply credited as "Ensign."

Behind the scenes footage of Billy can be seen on the ENT Season 1 DVD special "Enterprise Outtakes". He was also featured in an extended deleted scene in sickbay from the episode "Minefield".
