Rondon was a 24th century Zaldan Starfleet operations division crewman who was based at Relva VII during the 2360s.

In 2364, Rondon participated in a test of Wesley Crusher, who was taking the Starfleet Academy entrance exam. In a corridor, Wesley collided with Rondon, who became belligerent, calling Wesley a Bulgallian sludge rat and a Mellanoid slime worm. Wesley, recognizing Rondon's Zaldan heritage, immediately began insulting him back, realizing that Zaldan culture demanded it. Rondon responded positively, referring to Wesley as a "friend." TAC officer Chang later revealed to Wesley that the confrontation had been staged, as a way to gauge Wesley's appreciation for cultural sensitivity in resolving conflicts. (TNG: "Coming of Age")

Rondon was played by Daniel Riordan.
