Pendari champion

The Pendari champion

The champion was a Tsunkatse fighter who fought aboard Penk's starship in 2376.

That year he fought in a blue match against Seven of Nine in her debut to the game. Upon viewing Seven, he noted her size, describing her as being "no bigger than a Tarkanian field mouse" and felt that "Penk's insulting me by putting you in the pit to face me." Upon seeing this champion, Neelix, who was watching the bout in person, remarked on his apparent strength, "he looks like he could pick up a shuttlecraft." Throughout the contest, the champion continued to mock and insult Seven, before finally defeating her, when he saw that she hesitated.

After losing the match, Penk explained to Seven that "there's a great deal of hostility toward the Borg in this sector. Every time the Pendari landed a blow, our audience grew." He then informed her that he was scheduling her for a red match in two days, noting the Pendari was supposed to compete, but that he had entered her in his place. Penk added "if three billion people paid to see you hurt, imagine how many will pay to see you die." (VOY: "Tsunkatse")

The Pendari champion was played by actor/wrestler Dwayne Johnson, better known by his credited name: The Rock. His appearance in this episode was part of a UPN network-wide event celebrating the addition of the WWE wrestling to their programming. (Star Trek: Voyager Companion, p. 350)
The Champion was described in the script as "the biggest, most muscular Tsunkatse combatant yet," of whom Neelix was "impressed at the size of..."
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives his name as The Pendari Champion.


This male delegate was one of several officials who were present on Norcadia Prime in 2376.

After Neelix's contact with the Norcadian ambassador, regarding the capture and recruitment of Seven of Nine (and Tuvok) to fight in Tsunkatse matches, Neelix learned that "a huge percentage of the planet's revenue comes from Tsunkatse," and that "nobody wants to do anything that might interfere with the game." (VOY: "Tsunkatse")

This delegate was only mentioned in dialogue.

This female fighter took part in the Tsunkatse matches in the Delta Quadrant when Seven of Nine and Tuvok were held prisoners by Penk, the fight coordinator. She trained with another opponent in the quarters and fought a match against a Kradin. (VOY: "Tsunkatse")
