Ardon Broht was a Bolian in the 24th century who worked for the publishing company Broht & Forrester.

In 2378, Broht agreed to publish the holonovel Photons Be Free, written by The Doctor aboard USS Voyager. Broht thought it had great potential. When The Doctor asked him to hold off distributing the novel, pending revision, Broht went ahead and published it anyway. He then refused to withdraw it, asserting that The Doctor had no rights to the novel as he was a hologram, not a person.

An arbitration hearing later gave The Doctor rights to the novel, which he then withdrew from circulation, much to Broht's dismay. (VOY: "Author, Author")

Ardon Broht was played by actor Barry Gordon.
The character also appears in the DS9 eBook Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found).
