  • Dunsel ist eine Bezeichnung für ein überflüssiges Objekt. Auf der Akademie der Sternenflotte verwenden Kadetten häufig diesen Begriff als Spitzname für eine überflüssige Person. 2268 testet die USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) den Computer M5, welcher die Crew eines Raumschiffes ersetzen soll. Captain James T. Kirk ist davon nicht begeistert, da ein Kommandant nicht von einem Computer ersetzt werden kann. Doch die ersten Tests mit M5 laufen erfolgreich und Commodore Robert Wesley gratuliert dem M5 Computer. Außerdem gratuliert Wesley Captain Kirk und bezeichnet ihn als Captain Dunsel, da dieser als Kommandant nun überflüssig ist. Dies deprimiert Kirk sehr, doch später stellt sich heraus, dass M5 ein Fehlschlag ist. (TOS: )
  • Dunsel was a term used by midshipmen in the 23rd century to describe a part which served no useful purpose. The term was used as an insult (albeit a playful one) to Captain James T. Kirk during the 2268 war games test of the M-5 Multitronic Unit created by Dr. Richard Daystrom. Commodore Robert Wesley called Kirk "Captain Dunsel" because the M-5's ultimate goal was to replace the need for living captains at all. This caused great confusion in Dr. Leonard McCoy, who was unfamiliar with the word. Kirk's First Officer Spock explained the term only after Kirk had left the bridge, stung by the insult. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer" )
  • A dunsel was a slang term used in the Federation Standard language to describe an item that was completely useless in Starfleet service. Starfleet Academy tradition assigns this moniker to people or things that serve no purpose. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual; TOS novel: Vulcan!) Commodore Robert Wesley once jokingly called Captain James T. Kirk as "Captain Dunsel" when Kirk's vessel was slated to test the M-5 computer, which was designed to take over a captain's role commanding a starship. (TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer")

(TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer") Lieutenant Roakn and other members of the Titan crew gave Cadet Zurin Dakal the nickname "Cadet Dunsel", giving him the least important jobs in the science section. Commander Jaza Najem responded by assigning Dakal to the Telemetric observation VISOR to run a probe on a quantum rippling effect, saying "I don't believe in dunsels, Cadet. Never have, never will." (TTN novel: Sword of Damocles) Ardon Broht called Quark a dunsel in 2385, to Quark's consternation. (DS9 eBook: Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found)) The term would appear to be derived from the name of Earth Starfleet captain Roy Dunsel; however, since Dunsel and his crew heroically sacrificed themselves in battle, it is unknown exactly how this happened, since the real Captain Dunsel certainly did serve a purpose.
