In the late 23rd century, Pardek was a member of the Romulan senate and had sources on Vulcan. In 2288, he humiliated himself during a session when he suggested the Vulcans might possess telepathic abilities.
In 2293, Pardek participated in the Khitomer Conference as a member of the Romulan delegation to the conference. During a private audience with Terran Emperor Spock, Pardek questioned Spock's policies for the Empire and predicted the Tholian Assembly would ally with the Gorn Hegemony and oust the Terran colonies from the Taurus Reach within two decades.
