    Also, you should include a description of the season/episode and possibly even scene this is found in. Otherwise this is literally just a picture and a title, and not at all searchable.

    "Is this Deanna Troi?" and "Is this Marina Sirtis?" are very different questions! I vote to undo the edits and restore the original question -- especially since the existing (good) answer sounds a bit silly after the edits to the title. Oct 26, 2015 at 1:17

No it's not!

This is actually Nora Leonhardt who was the stand-in for Marina Sirtis who played Troi.

Here's a picture of Leonhardt:

and now compared with Sirtis:

In fact, she's not actually playing Troi in the above image; it's some junior science officer who holds the rank of ensign. If you look closely at the above picture, you'll see that that character isn't actually Deanna Troi at all - she has only got the rank of ensign; but we know that

By 2364, Troi held the rank of lieutenant commander. That year, she was assigned as ship's counselor aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")
