Lieutenant Painter was a male Human Starfleet officer in the 23rd century. He served in the command division aboard the USS Enterprise in 2267 under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, during the historic five-year mission. He was one of the ship's helmsmen.
That same year, he was assigned to bridge duty when the Enterprise visited Omicron Ceti III. Like the rest of the Enterprise crew, Painter fell under the influence of the Omicron spores and mutinied, though he later recovered thanks to a subsonic transmitter. (TOS: "This Side of Paradise")
