As of 2374, Salek held the rank of Commander, and was assigned to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. He served as first officer of the USS da Vinci, and the head of that ship's SCE team. (SCE eBooks: The Belly of the Beast, War Stories, Book 2)
Salek had joined the S.C.E. as a lieutenant commander, against the advice of his sister, who instead suggested he join the all-Vulcan crew of the USS T'Kumbra. Salek rejected this advice, being unconcerned about working amongst emotional races, and also due to the fact that the T'Kumbra offered no opportunity for advancement. (SCE eBook: War Stories, Book 2)
Salek died in late 2375 (circa 52698.1), when he sacrificed himself to deactivate an alien vessel called Dancing Star, as well as to defend the da Vinci from a Cardassian warship, the Grach'noyl. (SCE eBook: Collective Hindsight, Book One)
In an alternate universe accessed by an interdimensional Androssi device, Salek survived into late 2376, and served as Captain David Gold's executive officer aboard the USS Gettysburg. (SCE eBook: Lost Time)
- Salek is described in War Stories as "mahogany-skinned"; however, the Vulcan depicted on the cover of Collective Hindsight, Book One -- confirmed by series editor Keith R. A. DeCandido as being Salek -- has a paler skin color.
