|Leah in 2157|
|Affiliation:||United Earth Starfleet|
|Stationed:||USS Defiant (NCC-1764)|
Leah was with Starfleet from an early time, but rose more quickly through the ranks after Madden's demise. She was able to leave the USS Defiant (NCC-1764) in 2192 with the help of Josh Rosen, who helped her because they were members of the same faith, which they practiced in secret (In Between Days: Bread).
She was an alcoholic and a lesbian, and dated a schoolteacher, Leonora Digiorno (mirror), who she killed during an alcoholic rage, on May 18, 2165 (In Between Days:Fortune). She later dated Science Crewman Diana Jones, who left her when she (Diana) learned that Leah had murdered Leonora (In Between Days:Bread).
- "Like I said, I was a boozehound. The previous honey was Leonora Digiorno. I made her go out and get me more. When she refused, I offed her."

- Images of actors are used to simulate the cast of the series. As a result Leah Benson is portrayed by Mayim Bialik.
