Prior to Voyager's departure from Deep Space 9, Stadi piloted a shuttlecraft carrying Tom Paris, who was joining the crew as an informant on the Maquis. He found her attractive but she declined his advances.
Stadi appears as a selectable crewmember in the non-canon video gameStar Trek: Starship Creator, in which her first name is given as Veronica. Her biography in the game states she entered Starfleet Academy in the year 2364, graduating in 2368, in the 96th percentile. It goes on to say she obtained her third-level pilot certificate and was assigned to the Mars-Saturn run in the Sol system where she had what was considered the best overall on-time record in five years and was excellent in navigating the Sol system's asteroid belt. Futhermore, in 2369, Stadi was promoted to lieutenant junior grade and was assigned as a test pilot aboard the prototype USS Intrepid where she increased pilot efficiency by 33%. While piloting the Intrepid on a test run near Alpha Draconis in 2370, the starship encountered a previously uncharted quantum filament, at which time Stadi managed to maneuver around the filament, thereby saving the ship. The game also states her interests included astropaleontology and classic Betazoid literature, and reveals she was only "severely injured" when Voyager was pulled into the Delta Quadrant, going on to serve as Tom Paris's relief.
