In 2370, Cardassian Gul Evek led a mission to planet Dorvan V to survey the buildings and equipment that would be left behind when the Human settlers evacuated. When the colonists refused to leave, it appeared an armed conflict would ensue. Evek, who had lost two of his three sons in a war with the Federation, agreed to withdraw his troops from the surface until some solution could be reached. Following the incident at Dorvan V, Gul Evek remained in the Demilitarized Zone.[1]

Later that year, Evek’s ship, the Vetar came under attack by Maquis ships. The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D intervened and was able to halt the Maquis attack.[2] When Deep Space Nine personnel contacted Evek for advice on eradicating a vole infestation, Evek wryly suggested that a Federation withdrawl from Bajor might help.[3]

Evek interrogeted suspected Maquis terrorist William Samuels. He later confronted a group of Federation colony leaders on Volon III, accusing them of taking part in a Starfleet plot to arm the colonists in the Demilitarized Zone, in violation of the new Federation-Cardassian treaty.[4]

Evek was responsible for the arrest of Starfleet officer Miles O’Brien in 2370. Evek later testified against O’Brien during his trial.[5] The Vetar later pursued Chakotay‘s Maquis ship into the Badlands in 2371. Barely escaping with their lives, Evek and his crew believed Chakotay’s ship destroyed by the plasma storms.[6]
