He was the commanding officer of the Galor-class warship Bak'rikan. Although he was once a highly respected gul within the Alliance, his reputation was ruined when his second-in-command, most trusted officer and secret lover Seska defected to the Terran Rebellion. During their illicit relationship, Seska continuously pumped Evek for information when making love, gaining more insight into the Alliance's workings. Gradually, Seska and other Cardassians started to see the Alliance between their people and the Klingons as a spreading corruption that threatened Cardassia as the Klingons had more power over the Cardassians in government and military strength. Consequently, Seska joined the rebellion in the hope that they could drive the Klingons from Cardassia and restore the homeworld to its former glory.
By 2371, Evek was considered a traitor to the Alliance and the Bak'rikan was predominantly staffed by incompetent and ill-trained officers who were sent to the ship as punishment. While she had studied medicine on Cardassia, Evek considered the assignment of a Klingon physician, B'Oraq, to his ship as the final insult which he had to endure since his former lover's defection. Seska came to serve on the raider Geronimo under the command of a former Terran slave named Chakotay. While pursuing the Geronimo through the Badlands, a vessel of an unfamiliar type and unknown origin suddenly appeared within range of the Bak'rikan. Although it was promptly destroyed by one of the Badlands' characteristic plasma storms, two escape pods were launched, one of which was recovered by the Bak'rikan while the other was recovered by the Geronimo before it escaped to the Terran Rebellion's base of operations elsewhere in the Badlands.
The occupant of the escape pod was a young Ocampa female named Kes. Along with her lover Neelix who became a guest aboard the Geronimo, she had been thrown more than 70,000 lightyears from her home planet in the Delta Quadrant by the alien entity known as the Caretaker. Upon examining Kes, B'Oraq determined that, despite a superficial resemblance, she was neither Terran nor Vulcan and, more importantly, that she was a potential telepath as the paracortex of her brain contained a high level of a neurotransmitter known as psilosynine, commonly found in telepathic species. By the 24th century, true telepaths were a rarity in the Alpha Quadrant as the Terran Empire had exterminated all known telepathic races centuries earlier and were therefore considered to be of huge strategic value to the Alliance. Given the limited equipment available on the Bak'rikan, Evek reluctantly followed B'Oraq's suggestion to divert course from Elvok Nor to Ardana. The planet housed a scientific research facility, Monor Base, which was staffed by three of the most brilliant scientists in the Alliance, namely Crell Moset, Kurak and Lewis Zimmerman. B'Oraq was confident that they would render assistance in experimenting on Kes as the base's supervisor was B'Elanna, the daughter of her old friend Miral whose life she had saved several years earlier.
Following the Bak'rikan's arrival at Monor Base, Kes was turned over to Zimmerman's custody, who was able to determine that she was indeed a telepath using his own modified version of a mind-sifter. When B'Elanna contacted Evek to tell him what Zimmerman had learned, she accused him of violating Alliance procedure in not immediately reporting the discovery of a potential telepath to Alliance Command, the penalty for which was death. As she loathed Evek and regarded B'Oraq as an enemy for curing her mother of a poison which she had spent years slowly administering, B'Elanna took great pleasure in destroying the Bak'rikan with all hands using a nadion pulse cannon. Given that Evek was "a traitor captaining a ship of incompetents," B'Elanna reasoned that no one would miss him. (VOY - Mirror Universe novel: The Mirror-Scaled Serpent)
