Drednok was an artificial lifeform who served as The Diviner's advisor and majordomo at the Tars Lamora prison colony during the late 24th century.


Drednok's full body

Drednok had a humanoid upper body and a spider-like lower body with four legs, which he usually kept concealed beneath a cloak. His legs allowed him to climb sheer surfaces and leap long distances. There were two tentacles attached to his back that ended in manipulator claws similar to those found on the Watchers. A holographic projector was incorporated into his left palm. He could combine his arms to form a large phaser cannon powerful enough to threaten a starship. When firing, he needed to anchor himself to the ground with his dorsal tentacles. (PRO: "Lost and Found")


In 2383, Drednok oversaw the hunt for Fugitive Zero. He wished to torture Dal R'El for information on Zero's whereabouts, but the Diviner allowed Gwyn to attempt to persuade Dal to cooperate first. After Dal was sentenced to work on the outer rim, Drednok arranged for him to "escape" and tracked him to the USS Protostar. However, he was unable to prevent the Protostar from escaping Tars Lamora. (PRO: "Lost and Found") Drednok subsequently quelled a riot by The Unwanted, before preparing the Rev-12 for launch and accompanying the Diviner in his pursuit of the Protostar. (PRO: "Starstruck")

Later, when the Rev-12 was contacted by Gwyn, after she had temporarily taken control of the Protostar, Drednok told her that they had been looking for her. (PRO: "Dream Catcher")
