Vanessa Theriault was a Human female who served as an officer in the Federation Starfleet in 23rd century. She was described as a petite "kooky redhead from the Martian Colonies", and served on the USS Sagittarius in the 2260s as a science officer and later as first officer.
In early 2266, Theriault played a crucial role in establishing Starfleet's first contact with the race known as the Shedai. She was also instrumental in saving the lives of several Tholians of the battle cruiser Lanz't Tholis, earning the respect of Nezrene in particular. (VAN novel: Reap the Whirlwind)
Later in 2268, during a Tholian attack on Vanguard, Theriault found herself as the first officer of the Sagittarius following the deaths of Captain Nassir and second officer Celerasayna zh'Firro. (VAN novel: Storming Heaven)
