Professional Life Edit
Cutler was assigned to the Enterprise during its maiden voyage - humanity's first long-range mission of space exploration. Three weeks after Enterprise's departure from Earth, Cutler was assigned to a landing party assigned to explore a recently discovered class M planet, later known as Archer IV. Sub-Commander T'Pol, who appointed the landing party members, selected her for her specialty in entomology; the planet had a diverse insect population.
Cutler explored by herself for several hours, then returned to the shuttlepod that was to return the landing party to Enterprise. At T'Pol's request, she and Crewman Ethan Novakovich remained on the planet overnight to study several nocturnal marsupials that had been identified by the landing party. They were joined by Commander Tucker and Ensign Travis Mayweather, who asked permission to sleep on the surface.
As the landing party's camp site was struck by a storm, Cutler, Ethan Novakovich and Charles Tucker III began experiencing hallucinations, caused by exposure to psychotropic tropolisine blown down from the mountains. After some difficulty, the party was transported back aboard the Enterprise, where Cutler was treated by Doctor Phlox, and ultimately pronounced unaffected by the compound. (ENT episode: "Strange New World")
A few weeks later, Cutler created a role-playing game she thought might help pass the evenings aboard Enterprise. After some initial difficulties, Hoshi Sato, Travis Mayweather, Novakovich, and James Anderson, began to play it frequently. (ENT novel: By the Book)
A few days later, Cutler led an exploration team to the surface of the planet Fazi to investigate the species on the southern continent. During the mission, Crewman Jamal Edwards was attacked by one of the creatures. (ENT novel: By the Book)
In fall of the same year, she accompanied Phlox to the surface of the planet Valakis, where he sought to discover a cure for the virulent pathogen ravaging the Valakians, one of the planet's two indigenous sentient species. (ENT episode: "Dear Doctor")
At some point during the Earth-Romulan War, Cutler was seriously injured during a battle with the Romulans and had needed several months to recover. She was offered an honorable discharge but declined and instead enrolled in Starfleet's office training programme. By January 2163 she was serving as a Lieutenant aboard the USS Endeavour under captain T'Pol. (ENT novel: A Choice of Futures)

As a child, Elizabeth spent many weeks playing role-playing games with her friends via computer networks; this later inspired her to study as a scientist and seek adventure in space.
In an alternate timeline in which John Frederick Paxton destroyed Starfleet Command and ended the talks for the Coalition of Planets in 2155, Cutler lived to the age of 147 years, finally dying of natural causes at her home in Tycho City in 2264, surrounded by five generations of her family. She was the last surviving human crewmember of Enterprise while T'Pol, who was then 176 years old, was the last altogether. (TOS - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
- As Cutler's fate in the mainline universe has not yet been determined in the ENT novel series, this fate may not in fact be an "alternate" one.
