Carender was a Human male who served as a Military Assault Command Operations soldier during the mid-22nd century. In late 2154, Carender was part of the MACO detachment aboard the NX-class starship Enterprise.
In that year, along with Private Myers, he accompanied Commander Charles Tucker and Lieutenant Malcolm Reed in boarding a mysterious vessel which had been attacking various ships in the area. When the vessel, which was being controlled remotely, began firing on Enterprise, Captain Archer ordered the boarding party retrieved via transporter, but, since the vessel's hull plating had been reinforced, it was only possible to beam them back one at a time. Subsequent to the retrieval of Carender and Myers, Enterprise's transporter was disabled, forcing the crew to abandon the rescue attempt and leave Tucker and Reed on the enemy vessel.
