Dr. D'Amato (portrayed by Arthur Batanides) was a minor character in Star Trek, appearing in the Season 3 episode "That Which Survives". He was a Starfleet geologist who served on the USS Enterprise under Captain James T. Kirk.

In 2268, D'Amato was among a landing party that investigated an ancient Kalandan outpost, giving D'Amato the opportunity to explore a planet that was only a couple of thousand years old. According to Kirk, the potential discoveries could enable D'Amato to give a report startling the Fifth Interstellar Geophysical Conference.

While searching for an underground water source, D'Amato encountered Losira, a hologram that functioned as part of the planet's defence system. Losira stated that she was "only for D'Amato" and approached him, touching him. However, her touch was deadly to D'Amato as physical contact with the hologram disrupted every cell in his body.
