In 2293, Pardek participated in the Khitomer Conference as a member of the Romulan delegation to the conference. After Ambassador Nanclus was exposed and arrested for conspiring with General Chang, Admiral Cartwright, and Colonel Patrick West to derail the peace process, Pardek remained as the Romulan represenative to the conference. (TOS novelization: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)
At the conference, Pardek became accquainted with Captain Spock, and maintained a dialog with the man until the mid 24th century. (TNG episode: "Unification") They were introduced by Spock's father Sarek. (TOS novel: Assignment: Eternity) During these years, Pardek built a reputation as a "man of the people" who actually listened to the people he represented in the Krocton Segment of Romulus, and as an advocate of peace. Romulan leadership, at least officially, viewed him as a radical because of his political positions. (TNG episode: "Unification")
In 2364, Pardek and Spock met in a secret conference held between the Federation, Romulan Star Empire, Klingon Empire and the Cardassian Union on an asteroid at the Romulan Neutral Zone. They discussed the unknown threat (which turned out to have been the Borg Collective) that destroyed the border outposts. (TOS - Vulcan's Soul novel: Exodus)
In 2368, Pardek participated in a Romulan plan to invade the Federation member world Vulcan. He lured Spock to Romulus, telling Spock that the new Proconsul Neral would be open to negotiations to reunify the Vulcan and Romulan peoples. Pardek led Romulan forces to the caves where Spock, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Commander Data were hiding. Spock realized that Pardek betrayed them and the other Romulans seeking reunification. Spock, Picard, and Data were taken into custody, but the three men were able to escape and communicate the Romulan's real intentions to Starfleet, of which the Enterprise-D intercepted the invasion fleet. (TNG episode: "Unification")
Pardek continued to serve in Romulan government. He survived the Reman Shinzon's assassination of the Senate, but in 2380 he was killed in the Hall of State's library by Tal Shiar member Torath at the behest of Director Rehaek. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)
