Marta DuBois as ArdraScrolls of Ardra - Scrolled documents featured on episode No. 87 "Devil's Due" (Stardate 44474.5) on the science fiction series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/SYN/1987-94.

The Scrolls of Ardra contained the "Contract of Ardra," an ancient legendary arrangement between the Devil ("Ardra") and people of Ventax II (stored in the Atheneum Vaults) wherein the Ventaxians were given a millennium of peace and prosperity in exchange for delivering the population into slavery at the end of the thousand years. According to legend, Ardra's return was to be heralded by earthquakes and the shaking of cities.

In the year 2367, an attractive female con artist (Marta DuBois) appeared to the Ventaxians in the form of Ardra and attempted to convince them she was their legendary Devil, who had returned to take possession of the planet and its people.

Ardra also claimed the right of possession of all things orbiting the planet which included the crew of the Starship Enterprise-D and it's Captain, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart).

In the end, however, Picard thwarted Ardra's plans and revealed her as a thief and charlatan to her Ventaxian victims.
