Gates was on duty on the bridge and working on an aft station when the Vulcan ambassador Sarek was beamed aboard. She later witnessed the effects of Sarek's Bendii Syndrome on Captain Picard and Commander Riker on the bridge. (TNG: "Sarek")
A holographic duplicate of Gates passed Commander Riker and his son Jean-Luc when she left the turbolift. This scenario was part of an illusion created by the alien Barash on Alpha Onias III. (TNG: "Future Imperfect")
She had a candlelight dinner together with a lieutenant in his quarters in late 2368. The two were interrupted by Lieutenant Commander Data who detected a huge chroniton field in these quarters. (TNG: "The Next Phase")
She was among one of the away teams which searched for Data and the Borg Crosis on an unnamed planet and was beamed back aboard the Enterprise-D where she resumed her navigational station. (TNG: "Descent, Part II")
In an alternate quantum reality, Gates attended the surprise birthday party for Worf at his 30th in his quarters. Later she manned the conn, when the Cardassians under the command of Gul Nador attacked the Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Parallels")
Gates was frequently at the helm of the Enterprise-D during 2370, following the departure of Ensign Ro Laren. Gates was a capable officer, and her merits include piloting the Enterprise-D inside an asteroid. (TNG: "The Pegasus")
She was part of the beta shift alongside Jae, which replaced the alpha shift, including Commander Riker and Sam Lavelle in 2370. She also had a drink in Ten Forward shortly after Ensign Sito Jaxa went missing and took again part in Worf's Mok'bara class, together with Martinez. (TNG: "Lower Decks")
Gates manned the conn when the Enterprise-D left orbit of Maranga IV to search for the Duras sisters Lursa and B'Etor (TNG: "Firstborn") and when the Enterprise-D created an emergent lifeform and the crew lost control of the ship. (TNG: "Emergence")

Background information Edit
Ensign Gates was played by regular background actress Joyce Robinson who received no credit for her appearances and previously appeared as an Excelsior crewmember in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia erroneously claims that Gates first appeared in Descent and then in several seventh season episodes, although she had had appeared as early as the third season in Sarek. (3rd ed.,p. 170)
