Letek was a Ferengi who served under DaiMon Tarr aboard his Marauder in 2364.

Letek was part of Tarr's crew that participated in the theft of a T-9 energy converter from Gamma Tauri IV.

Letek led the science team, consisting of himself, Mordoc and Kayron down to Delphi Ardu IV, in a joint Ferengi-Federation venture to discover the source of the powerful force field that immobilized both their Marauder and the USS Enterprise-D.

Once on the surface Letek and his team attacked the Enterprise away team, lead by Commander William T. Riker, preparing to claim that the Enterprise party attacked them first, when he was questioned by Mordock about breaking their agreement with Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Later, when the source of the field was discovered to be a Portal of the Tkon Empire, Letek first "volunteered" Riker to answer Portal 63's challenge. Letek then attempted to negotiate with the Portal by offering to destroy Enterprise if his own starship were released. However, when Riker answered the challenge and Portal released the Enterprise, Letek asked what of his vessel, claiming that they knew the answer as well. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Letek was later part of Commander Riker's memories while being infected on the surface of Surata IV and treated in sickbay in 2365. (TNG: "Shades of Gray")

Letek was the first Star Trek role played by actor Armin Shimerman, who later played Bractor, then Quark.
Letek appears in the novel The 34th Rule, which was co-written by Shimerman and features Quark in a prominent role. At one point, Jadzia Dax comments that Letek looks familiar.
