Vinod was the son of Alixus, a fanatical philosopher who intentionally stranded a colony of people on Orellius in order to teach them how to live a life without technology. In 2370, he and Alixus left the colony with Benjamin Sisko and Miles O'Brien to answer for their crimes.

Vinod was a fan of soccer and, more specifically, the player Golanga. (DS9: "Paradise")

Vinod was played by Michael Buchman Silver.
In their book The Stargate Conspiracy, Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince comment that Vinod may have been named for the Indian mystic D.G. Vinod. [1]
