An empathic metamorph from the Krios system who traveled aboard the Enterprise to Valt Minor on Stardate 45761.3, there to marry Chancellor Alrik and end a struggle between the two worlds. Kamala was very beautiful, and able to instantly change her personality to reflect the desires of any male; as she was in the final stages of her sexual maturity when coming aboard, she caused a great deal of disruption among the Enterprise crew. It was planned that she would permanently bond herself to Alrik; however, after working closely with Captain Picard during the journey, she decided to bond herself to him, because she liked the way she was with him. However, she acquired Picard's sense of duty as a result, and chose to marry Alrik anyway, to secure peace for her people.

(Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Perfect Mate," season 5. Played by Famke Janssen. Interestingly, Janssen was one of the actresses considered for the role of Jadzia Dax on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and her makeup in this episode became the basis for Terry Farrell's makeup on that series.)
