Seltin Rakal was a female inhabitant of Meridian in the Trialus star system in the Gamma Quadrant. Rakal spends sixty years in a non-corporeal state with the rest of her people when Meridian is shifted into another dimension by a phenomenon caused by the Trialus star.
In 2371, when Meridian was shifted back into the regular universe and the crew of the USS Defiant made first contact with the inhabitants, Rakal invited the senior staff to dine with them at the First Meal. Later, Rakal had concerns when Deral started a relationship with Jadzia Dax, but welcomed Jadzia when she decided to remain on Meridian. (DS9 episode: "Meridian", ST reference: Celebrations)
