Lieutenant jg Van Mayter was a Starfleet engineering officer aboard the USS Enterprise-D in the 2360s.

She was on duty in main engineering when a spaceborne lifeform dubbed "Junior" attached itself onto the hull of the ship. (TNG: "Galaxy's Child")

Van Mayter passed the transporter room when Chief O'Brien left to let Counselor Troi speak to her mother. (TNG: "Half a Life")

She scanned the shuttlecraft Onizuka in the shuttlebay when Geordi La Forge returned from Risa. (TNG: "The Mind's Eye")

In late 2367, she was killed while investigating the effects of subspace deformations on the Enterprise-D when one such distortion formed in the deck beneath her, causing her to fall partially into it. When the floor re-materialized, her internal organs were crushed. (TNG: "In Theory")

Van Mayter was played by recurring background actress Georgina Shore, who received no credit for her appearances.
She was named by La Forge in the episode "In Theory". The eBook Many Splendors gives her the first name Helga.
