During the Borg Invasion of 2381, Kandel was on duty when the Aventine answered the USS Enterprise-E's distress call in the Azure Nebula, and became responsible for the targeting of the transphasic torpedoes.

Kandel was also on duty when the Aventine launched a plan to attack, board, and capture a Borg scout ship. When the Borg Queen took control of the scout, Kandel relayed orders to get everyone off before the Aventine destroyed the ship. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)
