Kaval was a Bajoran male alive during the late-24th century.

In 2369, Kaval served as the Minister of State in Bajor's newly formed Provisional Government. After Aamin Marritza was arrested aboard Deep Space 9, and evidence of his presence at Gallitep was discovered, Kaval contacted Commander Benjamin Sisko and congratulated him for imprisoning Marritza, telling him he had performed a "special service" for Bajor. Though Sisko argued that Starfleet did not have grounds for holding the Cardassian, Kaval bluntly replied "we will have him".

Kaval later put Kira Nerys in charge of the investigation and interrogation of Marritza. (DS9: "Duet")


Background information

Kaval was played by Ted Sorel in his only Star Trek appearance.

The script for "Duet" provides the pronunciation of Kaval's name as "ka-VAL". [1]


In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Mission Gamma novel Twilight, Kaval still serves as Minister of State for Bajor in the year 2376. In that year, the character Charivretha zh'Thane believes Kaval may be involved in negotiating the agreement for Bajor to send katterpod shipments to Europa Nova.
