Lieutenant Nancy Trent is Colonel Jack Sydell's secretary.
Sydell informs Trent that his superiors have ordered him to cease investigating the mysterious strangers (Troy and Dillon). However, when he notices that Jamie Hamilton is linked to the two of them he decides to go ask her some questions. He informs Trent that he is stepping out to look into something, but not to let anybody know that he was gone. Trent asks if his plans were of a classified nature, and Sydell implies that this is the case (Spaceball).
