Nerys’s cousin and good friend of Tarak. They fought the Cardassians together, and after the Empire War, Samak joined Tarak’s pirate ship and got rich. He retired on Bajor but dreams of the days of past glories.
Samak was murdered shortly after arriving on Deep Space Nine, where he had gone to visit with his friend Tarak and his cousin Nerys. No one saw the attack, and Constable Odo is pursuing every avenue of investigation open to him. The only public information regarding the murder indicates that Samak was shot in the back with a projectile weapon of some sort.
