Lieutenant Commander Alleran Tan (formerly Alleran Mapak) was a joined Trill, helmsman and pilot assigned to the USS Garuda. He died aboard the Galaxy-class ship after experiencing a profound drop in isoboramine. The Tan symbiont was later implanted unsuccessfully into Safine Tan, and then later into Serren Tan.

- Full Name:Alleran (Mapak) Tan
- Host Age: 36. Birthday 236212.01 (1st of December 2362).
- Symbiont Age: 125. Birthday 227409.06 (6th of September 2274).

- Previous Hosts: Marlee Tan
- Subsequent Hosts: Safine Tan, Serren Tan
- Gender: Male
- Hair color: Brown
- Eye color: Brown
- Height: 5'1"
- Telepathic status: NA. Tan's previous host's voice could be heard occasionally in his head, usually giving sarcastic advice or admonishments, but this was normal of joined Trills and does not extend outside his mind (usually).
- Place of Birth: Byroni, Trill Prime.
- Tattoos/Body Modifications: Trill symbiont. After his stay on Devinon V, Alleran received a two-inch scar just above his left eye. Additionally, Alleran has three deep scars on the small of his back over his heart. After being shot in the back the surgeons on Medical Starbase 358 removed a vertebra from his spine, causing him to lose an inch of height. Said vertebra has since been replaced with a prosthetic.
- Skin Tone: Light olive, with dark Trill spots.
- Handedness: Right.
- Languages: Trill (native), English (accented but clear), Vaadwaur (weak vocabulary and heavily accented but otherwise understandable), Romulan (fluent with a slight accent, from previous host).
- Quarters: Tan's quarters were fairly untidy.
- Favorite Room: Anywhere that wasn't a hospital.
- Mannerisms/Habits: Alleran had a mild phobia of (having a) prosthetic limb and battle-bridges. His prosthetic vertebra was, somehow, okay.
- Temperament: Alleran Tan was rarely seen without a smile and tends to not take things too seriously (except the Borg).
- Religion/Spiritual Devotion: None, but lingering remnants of a childhood of quiet religion still linger every now and then.
