Opaka Sulan served as the Kai until 2369.

The Kai was the religious leader of Bajor, who is elected to a life term by the Vedek Assembly. A Kai had supreme religious power over the Bajorans, surpassed only by that of the Emissary of the Prophets. A Kai also had a great deal of political influence on the Bajoran Provisional Government, and in extreme circumstances the Kai could serve in political offices such as First Minister of Bajor. (DS9 episodes: "Emissary", "The Collaborator", "Shakaar")


In the latter part of the 22nd century, Kai Taluno travelled aboard a starship, which was disabled for several days in the Denorios Belt. This was where Taluno claimed that he had a vision from the Prophets. Furthermore, Taluno reported that the heavens opened up and nearly swallowed his ship. At a peace conference, he was noted to have had met one of the hosts of Dax (presumably Tobin). (DS9 novel: Emissary)

Winn Adami used her position to negotiate with the Cardassians and later the Dominion. In late 2373, she began negotiations with Weyoun for Bajor to sign an nonaggression pact. (DS9 episodes: "Life Support", "In the Cards")

After Winn Adami was killed by Skrain Dukat in the Fire Caves, several Vedeks began to campaign for the title. Among the most prominent were Yevir Linjarin, Solis Tendren and Ungtae. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind"; DS9 novels: Avatar, Book One, Cathedral)

In late 2376, the Vedek Assembly began deliberating and taking statements in preparation of an election for a new Kai. (DS9 novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens)

Vedek Pralon Onala had become Kai in 2377. (DS9 novel: Sacraments of Fire, ST - Typhon Pact novel: Rough Beasts of Empire, ST - The Fall novel: Revelation and Dust)

By 2409, Kira Nerys had become Kai. (STO mission: "Boldly They Rode")
