Vel was a member of the terrorist group called Open Sky who resisted the Akritiri regime.

In 2373, he bombed a recreation facility. However, two humans, Harry Kim and Tom Paris, that were visiting from Voyager were falsely blamed for it, and sentenced to prison.

When Captain Janeway captured him and presented the evidence to the head of the Akritiri Regime, he refused to release the crew members. In return for his freedom, Vel led Voyager to the prison where Paris and Kim are imprisoned. (VOY: "The Chute")

Vel was played by actor James Parks.
