Starfleet careerEdit

USS EnterpriseEdit

In 2267, Palmer was serving as communications officer during the Enterprise's second visit to Mestiko. (TOS - Mere Anarchy eBook: The Centre Cannot Hold) She was also on duty several weeks later, when the Enterprise detected a garbled distress call from the USS Constellation. During the following battle between the Enterprise and the "planet killer", she made constant damage and casualty reports to Commander Spock. (TOS episode: "The Doomsday Machine")

In 2269, Palmer relieved Lieutenant Nyota Uhura when Spock ordered her to report to Deep Space Station M-33 and assist the station's staff in communicating with some Tholian prisoners. (TOS short story: "Fracture")

Palmer continued to serve aboard the Enterprise in the late 2270s. In 2277, Palmer manned the communications station while Lieutenant Commander Uhura was enjoying shore leave on the planet Macedon III. (TOS short story: "Under Twin Moons")
