Lieutenant John Farrell was a male Human Starfleet officer in the 23rd century. He served in the command division aboard the USS Enterprise in 2266 under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, during the historic five-year mission.

When a group of three beautiful women were rescued from a doomed cargo vessel, Farrell was one of a number of male crewmembers who fell under the influence of their charm. When Harry Mudd, the criminal who was attempting to wive the women, hatched a plot to supply the women to three lithium miners on planet Rigel XII in exchange for his own freedom, Magda, one of the women, manipulated Farrell into supplying her with a communicator and the frequency with which Mudd could contact the miners. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")

Farrell was on duty at the navigator's station later that year, when an animalistic duplicate of Captain Kirk attempted to take command of the Enterprise and strand a number of crewmembers on the surface of a freezing planet. When the other version of Kirk arrived on the bridge, Farrell expressed confusion as to which one of them was actually the captain, until science officer Spock made it clear that the one in command was not to be trusted. (TOS: "The Enemy Within")

Farrell manned the communications station when Kirk and others became stranded on the surface of a planet which had been devastated by a plague, and supplied the landing party with critical computer information regarding calculations being performed in an attempt to find a cure. (TOS: "Miri")

Farrell was played by actor Jim Goodwin.
Farrell was originally intended to appear in more episodes than he finally did. The character was originally in "The Naked Time" and "Charlie X", however both times he was deleted from the final draft script. In "The Naked Time", he was replaced by Lieutenant Kevin Riley, played by Bruce Hyde. (These Are the Voyages: TOS Season One)
