Yeoman Leslie Thompson was a Starfleet crew member on the USS Enterprise, serving under Captain James T. Kirk.

Thompson was a member of the landing party that encountered the Kelvan Milky Way Expedition on a Class M unnamed planet in 2268 on stardate 4657.5. To demonstrate his power to Kirk, Kelvan leader Rojan ordered Hanar to reduce Thompson into a dehydrated porous cuboctahedron solid, the size of a Human fist, composed of Thompson's base minerals which represented the "distilled" essence of Thompson's being. Rojan crushed and crumbled the solid in his right hand, killing Thompson, leaving nothing but powdery dust remains on the ground. Kirk found himself mourning her, unable to stop thinking about her destruction. (TOS: "By Any Other Name")

Thompson was played by actress Julie Cobb, who had the dubious distinction of being the only female redshirt to die in the classic series. She is the first female redshirt to die in the series.
