Dusty Swender was a 23rd century Human.

She was born on January 10, 2247, in Syracuse, New York, North America.

In 2266, she was a Starfleet Academy cadet assigned to a cadet vessel. During an inspection tour of this vessel by Fleet Captain Christopher Pike, there was an accident in engineering during which a baffle plate ruptured. After surviving the initial event, she and four other cadets were rescued by Pike who was permanently disfigured by the delta radiation. Years earlier, Pike had a vision of these events on Boreth, which traumatized him so much that a year later he could relive the moment and could name the five cadets in a conversation he had with his first officer Una Chin-Riley. Later that day, he asked the computer to perform a search for Swender in the United Federation of Planets Citizen Database. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I"; DIS: "Through the Valley of Shadows"; SNW: "Children of the Comet")
