Sveta was a member of the Maquis and a friend of Chakotay. She recruited him into the Maquis some time around 2370. She had also known B'Elanna Torres. As of 2374 she was in a prison, like the few other Maquis to escape Dominion's massacre of the Maquis in 2373.
In 2374, she sent a letter to Chakotay aboard the USS Voyager via the Hirogen communications network. (VOY: "Hunters")
This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
Chakotay described Sveta as an old friend. However, B'Elanna was surprised that she would write him.
