Former member of Destiny's crew, who elected to stay behind on a planet discovered several weeks after the evacuation of Icarus Base. Dana was likely a civilian scientist assigned to the base.
When Tamara Johansen dreamed of returning to the planet with her baby, Carmen, Dana came to visit Caine's home on the planet with Peter (with whom she may have been in a relationship). Peter and Dana asked to see the baby, perhaps to become her surrogate parents after T.J. had to return to Destiny. But T.J. later discovered that the whole experience had not been real.
Dana and the rest of the settlers died during the winter, and were reanimated and returned to Destiny by the advanced aliens who created the planet. They lived a short time before dying again, of the same injuries to which they originally succumbed.
