Dr. Crell Moset was a male Cardassian scientist in the 24th century.


During the Occupation of Bajor, Moset experimented on living Bajoran subjects, infecting hundreds with the Fostossa virus in order to find a cure. For his efforts, he was awarded the Legate's Crest of Valor.

He was hired by Gul Skrain Dukat to eliminate Kira Meru, the mother of Kira Nerys, when Dukat believed that she had become a liability in 2353. Moset eliminated her with the Fostossa virus. (ST - Terok Nor novel: Night of the Wolves)

In the 2360s, Kalisi Reyar began to work with Moset, learning he had a relative who was a member of the Oralian Way. (ST - Terok Nor novel: Dawn of the Eagles)

By 2371, Crell was the Chairman of Exobiology at the University of Culat. (VOY episode: "Nothing Human")

In 2375, he was on sabbatical from the university, and working aboard Sentok Nor, in orbit of Betazed, experimenting on Betazoid subjects in an effort to give the Jem'Hadar telepathic abilities. However, this plan failed when the Jem'Hadar proved incapable of coping with the new sensory input they were receiving, and Moset was forced to abandon the project. (TNG novel: The Battle of Betazed)

Also in 2375, The Doctor aboard the USS Voyager consulted a holographic recreation of Crell Moset while attempting to remove a cytoplasmic lifeform living on Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres. Ensign Tabor revealed to the rest of the crew of Moset's atrocities, and after removing the lifeform the Doctor deleted the recreation of Moset. (VOY episode: "Nothing Human")

Years after the Dominion War, Moset was rescued from Starfleet capture by a renegade Changeling who became trapped in Solid form several years ago and seeks Moset's help in restoring his old abilities, the Changeling currently unable to return to its natural form and limited to male humanoids of a certain size. Moset also attempts further genetics experiments by analyzing the DNA of Chakotay's people- the Changeling having taken on the form of Voyager's new first officer-, hoping to unlock the full potential of their Sky Spirit-enhanced DNA. With the Changeling captured and Chakotay rescued, Moset is confronted by Voyager's new doctor Jarem Kaz, a Trill whose previous host's wife was killed by Moset's experiments, who coldly forced Moset to realize just how horrific and evil he would be regarded as by future generations despite his self-reassurances that his work would justify what he had done, subsequently refusing to kill him as he preferred to leave Moset forced to look at a mirror of just how ruthless he was. (VOY - Spirit Walk novels: Old Wounds, Enemy of My Enemy)
