Lieutenant M'Ress, voiced by Majel Barrett, is a recurring character on Star Trek: The Animated Series which aired on NBC from 1973 to 1974.

M'Ress is a female Starfleet officer assigned to the engineering section of the USS Enterprise under the command of James T. Kirk. She also occasionally assumes the role of relief communications officer. M'Ress is Caitian: a felinoid, with long, thick orange fur and yellow eyes. She speaks quite softly and has a cat-like purring quality to her voice. She does not wear shoes and has four digits on each paw.

The name of the Caitian planet is Cait, according to a biography of Lt. M'ress published by Lincoln Enterprises in 1974.


M'Ress' first appearance was in the animated episode "The Survivor". She appeared in a total of six episodes: "The Survivor", "Once Upon a Planet", "Mudd's Passion", "The Eye of the Beholder", "Bem" and "The Practical Joker".

The character of M'Ress also appeared in the Star Trek novel, The Galactic Whirlpool by David Gerrold published by Ballantine Books in October 1980. She is also featured in several issues of the 1980s DC Comics version of Star Trek. These stories take place a few years after the original five year mission. M'Ress featured in a number of storylines in which she even teasingly flirted with Sulu.

She appeared again in the Next Generation era Star Trek: New Frontier novels. There she serves aboard the USS Trident. The explanation is that a time anamoly brought her forth to the future. She appears over the course of several New Frontier books, where she is involved in accusations of mental manipulation against a superior officer and is the suspect in the officer's later murder.
