Mary Meinel-Newport is an actress seen in several episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, playing a Bolian extra. She appeared throughout the first four years of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a Bolian background character, possibly Lysia Arlin. She can also be seen in Star Trek Generations as a Bolian Woman in Ten Forward.

Raised in Tucson, Arizona, both Mary and her husband, Jerry Newport, have Asperger's syndrome, a mild form of autism. They have two sons, Stephen and Peter, along with two grandchildren. Mary and Jerry Newport's relationship was the subject of a 1995 LA Times article, which became the inspiration for a 2005 film called Mozart and the Whale – named after a book written by the Newports (along with Johnny Dodd) entitled Mozart and the Whale: An Asperger's Love Story. They also wrote a book called Autism - Asperger's & Sexuality: Puberty and Beyond.

Mary Newport appeared on Babylon 5 as a Centauri female (a series that starred Bill Mumy and Andreas Katsulas), and was interviewed twice on 60 Minutes, in both 1996 and 2004.
