Pelek was a Cardassian soldier who was part of an elite five-man Cardassian Guard unit led by Gul Tartek. Pelek and the team were sent to Bajor in a Cardassian shuttlecraft in 2371, on a mission to retrieve a temporal disruptor left behind in a uridium mining operation two-and-a-half years earlier, during the Cardassian Union's withdrawal from the occupation of Bajor.
One of Pelek's specialties was lock-picking, and as such he was the member of Tartek's team assigned to open the sealed mine entrance, which was a Cardassian door that had been reprogrammed by Bajoran computers. When the chroniton radiation from the time-device started to cause the team's sickness and madness, Tartek fled the mine, with Pelek and the team pursuing him towards the shuttlecraft, while the temporal distortions increased. (DS9 comic: "No Time Like the Present")
- It was not revealed whether or not Pelek was one of the mission survivors, as the mad Tartek did kill one of the men on his way out of the mine.
