Mika was a female Bajoran of the 24th century. She married Benyan and had a child with Dukat.

Mika was a follower of a Cult of the Pah-wraiths in 2375. During that year, she and her husband left to live on Empok Nor as followers of Dukat. Like the other followers, she followed a covenant between the believers and Dukat, including a vow of abstinence. She and Benyan asked Dukat for a child and he agreed. Dukat prayed with both of them, but also prayed with Mika alone. During one of these sessions, they had sex, though she immediately considered it a mistake. She became pregnant and assumed it was Benyan's child.

Colonel Kira Nerys was brought to the station and tried to point out the mistaken beliefs to her, but she was not convinced. However, she shortly gave birth to a half-Cardassian child. Dukat immediately proclaimed that the child was transformed by the Pah-wraiths into a symbol of his covenant with his followers, but Mika of course knew the truth. Benyan wanted to believe, but he was skeptical.

When Mika told Dukat that she would not lie to her husband if he asked about the child's true parentage, Dukat attempted to kill her by pushing her into an airlock and depressurizing it. Kira and Fala arrived in time to re-pressurize the airlock and saved her life. She recovered in the infirmary with her husband.

After the cult's dissolution when Dukat was exposed, she, Benyan and the child left with Kira on the USS Defiant. (DS9: "Covenant")

Mika was played by actress Maureen Flannigan.
Mika and her child (β) appear in Pocket Books' post-finale Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fiction in the novel Mission Gamma: Cathedral.
