List of unnamed Cardassian military personnel.

See Category:Cardassians for a full list of named individuals.

Border conflict combatants

These combatants were engaged in a fight with an away team consisting of then-Lieutenant Kathryn Janeway during the Cardassian border conflict.

One of them had been wounded and could be heard moaning. Janeway's commanding officer ordered her and an ensign to retrieve the injured enemy. Despite her misgivings, they complied, and the man lived.

She still recalled the incident with pride in 2374, more so for saving him, than for securing the Federation outpost they were defending, which had earned them decorations. She used the incident as an example to show Seven of Nine why having compassion on one's enemies was part of being Human. (VOY: "Prey")

These Cardassians were only mentioned in dialogue.

Dominion Headquarters guards

These guards were stationed at Dominion Headquarters, Worf and Ezri Dax were held prisoners in 2375. The first two guards guarded Damar while visiting the prison cell and witnessed how Worf killed Weyoun. One of these guards and the next three pictured tried to stop Worf and Ezri after their escape from the prison cell and were shot at in the corridor. The two latter guards stopped the two prisoners. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

All Cardassians were played by background and stunt performers who received no credit for their appearance.

Gallitep personnel


A Cardassian glinn

This glinn served under Legate Damar at Dominion Headquarters on Cardassia Prime in late 2374. He was startled when Damar's predecessor Dukat managed to make his way to Damar unannounced. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

The Cardassian glinn was played by Bob Kirsh.

Gul 1

A Cardassian gul

This gul was one of several officers entertained by comfort women on Terok Nor in 2346. He appeared to take a liking to Kira Meru and was quite forceful with her, until Gul Dukat pulled him off. Another officer, however, told Luma Rahl the entire incident had been staged by Dukat to impress her. (DS9: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night").

The Cardassian gul was played by actor Marc Marosi.
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives his name as Oran.

Gul 2

A Cardassian gul

This gul delivered weapons to the Zef'No and the Kressari on board the freighter Calondon in 2370. These weapons were bound for Bajor, and ultimately the Alliance for Global Unity. He left his thumbprint on a PADD. Odo later stole this PADD and brought it to Deep Space 9 as evidence against the Cardassians. (DS9: "The Circle")

This Cardassian was played by Anthony Guidera.

Guls 3

These guls contacted Ulani Belor in 2371, emphasizing the importance of a joint Cardassian Science Ministry-Starfleet operation. She had never heard of them before. (DS9: "Destiny")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Hutet personnel


A Cardassian informant

The informant was a high-ranking contact of Odo's in the Cardassian Union. By the early 2370s, he had changed his appearance.

In 2371, Odo contacted him to ask him about the assassination attempt on Elim Garak. He informed him that he was investigating a "very insignificant piece of a much larger puzzle". He relayed the information of a large Romulan military buildup outside Cardassian space. He later gave Odo a list of five other former Obsidian Order operatives who had suffered "accidents" on the same day as the explosion in Garak's tailor shop. (DS9: "Improbable Cause")

The Cardassian informant was played by Star Trek regular Joseph Ruskin.
It is possible that this informant was Gul Russol, although Ronald D. Moore has stated that Thrax was a possibility. (AOL chat, 1997). Since he knew of Odo's performance of the Cardassian neck trick, he might have been part of the Cardassian High Command audience that saw Odo perform the trick in the early 2360s, mentioned a year prior in "Necessary Evil", namely Gul Hadar, who supposedly "couldn't stop talking about it."


A Cardassian legate

This legate was one of several senior Cardassian officers visiting the new station Terok Nor in 2346. Several Bajoran comfort women were recruited to entertain them, and the legate was particularly taken with Luma Rahl. When Luma witnessed Gul Dukat apparently protect her friend Kira Meru from an unruly officer, the legate pointed out that it was merely an act Dukat often put on to impress Bajoran women. (DS9: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night").

The legate was played by actor Wayne Grace.
Though he was referred to in the credits as a legate (and wore the appropriate uniform), he described Kira Meru as being "off-limits to the rest of us" once Gul Dukat took an interest in her, possibly because Dukat was commander of the station.
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives his name as Parek. Grace's uniform was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay and is different from the other Cardassian uniforms because it was made of more sturdy, moderately metallic material. [1]


This liaison duped Starfleet Vice Admiral Kennelly into believing the Bajoran terrorist, Orta, was responsible for the recent attack on the Federation colony of Solarion IV. The liaison proposed an agreement whereby Kennelly would provide pretense allowing the Cardassians to destroy Orta and his cell, an arrangement to which Kennelly agreed. The liaison in question, had previously met with Kennelly, who, during the meeting the admiral caught virus from. (TNG: "Ensign Ro")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.

Madred's guards

These two served as guards for Gul Madred in 2369.

They brought the imprisoned Captain Jean-Luc Picard into Madred's interrogation room and placed him for interrogation. Later they escorted him back to the ship which brought him back to the Enterprise-D at Gul Lemec's order. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I", "Chain of Command, Part II")


These officers were present when Elim Garak placed an explosive device in a building on Cardassia. Garak was stopped by a Jem'Hadar patrol while these Cardassians passed them. When the device exploded the Cardassians were hit by the blast but were all unharmed. After this event, Damar called all the crowded Cardassians and told them that the rebellion was not over. (DS9: "The Dogs of War")


These four passersby watched a video of Gul Dukat when he became leader of Cardassia and allied with the Dominion. He promised to remove and kill all Klingons and Maquis from within Cardassian space and swore all Cardassia lost would be regained. (DS9: "By Inferno's Light")

They were played by unknown performers.
