Gul Kardek is a Changeling posing as a Cardassian officer serving the True Way. He commands the Grenivok.

Missions involved[]

  • ALL “Spoils of War”: The player encounters Kardek, who has stolen the Orb of Possibilities, on a True Way base in the Badlands. After Kardek escapes the base, the player discovers that he has been in contact with Captain Leeta of the Mirror Universe, and that he has requested her help in fighting the Federation. Aboard the Grevinok, Kardek fights the player's ship and the U.S.S. Defiant, commanded by Commander Sarish Minna, and escapes through a portal to the Mirror Universe.
  • ALL “Jabberwocky”: The player finds Kardek in the Mirror Universe version of Hathon, where he reveals his true nature as a Changeling. Kardek is defeated in battle[1], and the player finds a PADD instructing Gul Pulat to meet with Damat'Zukan in the Orias System in Kardek's stead.


  • Kardek was redesigned with Victory is Life, notably losing his facial hair.
  1. Kardek is not killed. Instead the player has the option to "loot" him in order to obtain a [Defeated Changeling], which can then be turned in with Starfleet/Klingon Intelligence via “Deliver Defeated Changeling to Starfleet Security”.
