Chief Petty Officer Garison was a male Human Starfleet enlisted crewmember in the 23rd century. He served in the operations division aboard the USS Enterprise in 2254 under the command of Captain Christopher Pike. Garison was one of the ship's communications officers.
That same year, Garison was at his station when the Enterprise intercepted the distress call from the SS Columbia. He was among all of the Talos IV landing parties, where he carried a large radio backpack. He was among the initial landing party that discovered the illusory Columbia camp, then later during Number One's failed attempt to use a laser cannon to shear off the rock-face to gain entry into the Talosian's underground settlement. He was also meant to join the third party, which was attempting to transport into the Talosian's underground settlement, but was prevented by the Talosians, who only allowed the transport of Number One and J.M. Colt. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part I", "The Menagerie, Part II")
