Jody Sturka is a resident of an alien planet. Her father is William Sturka and her mother is Eve Sturka.

During the events of The Twilight Zone: Season 1 Episode 14 Third from the Sun played by Denise Alexander

Sturka goes home and is greeted by Jody. Jody notices something is wrong with Sturka and asks him what is the matter. Sturka tells her that he is feeling the weight of the years. She asks him if he likes his job and lists off the different bombs he is working on. He tells her that he is just a cog in the wheel and really not responsible for the end product. She mentions that the other teenagers have noticed that something is wrong. Eve walks into the room and listens as Jody further explains that her friends noticed that something seems ready to happen. Sturka complains about how every great idea gets subverted into something terrible. He tells Eve to call Jerry Riden to invite him and Ann Riden for cards. He asks Jody to stay for cards and after she tells him that she has a date, he tells her to break it.

Jody calls up to Sturka and tells him Jerry stopped by. During the card game, Eve, Jody and Ann go to the kitchen to get lemonade and cake. The doorbell rings and Carling enters the house. Carling starts asking suspicious questions and notices Eve seems nervous. Carling leaves and Sturka reveals the plan to Jody. The phone rings and Sturka answers it and tells the others that his department called him to work. They drive to the Ministry of Science and park at the gate. They receive a signal from who they think is the guard Jerry bribed, but turns out to be Carling. Carling walks up with a drawn gun and orders everyone out of the car. Jody hits him and Sturka and Jerry manage to subdue him. They all run to the spaceship and take off.
