Lynch was an ensign serving aboard the USS Enterprise-E when it followed a Borg sphere back in time when it attempted to prevent Zefram Cochrane from successfully flying the Phoenix.

Ensign Lynch was among those assimilated by the Borg when they attempted to take over the ship. Captain Picard shot him with a holographic tommy gun in the Dixon Hill holodeck program (with the safety protocols turned off) to obtain the Lynch-drone's neuroprocessor. The drone still had the remains of a Starfleet uniform and combadge underneath its exo-plating, which disturbed Lily Sloane.

Lily later cited Lynch's fate to Picard as an example of how he was letting his personal vendetta against the Borg get the better of him at the expense of his crew, but the captain insisted there was nothing that could have been done to save Lynch. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Ensign Lynch was played by stuntman Gary Epper.
Ensign Lynch was widely believed to be named after Internet critic Timothy W. Lynch, who reviewed every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In actuality, the character was named after a friend of writer Brannon Braga. [1]
