In late 2335 or early 2336, Thex, along with fellow Barker officers Commander Samir al-Halak and Lieutenant Strong, undertook a covert mission to planet Ryn III at the behest of Starfleet Intelligence to investigate infiltration by the Orion Syndicate, and any possible business connections they had with the Cardassian Union. Their presence on the planet was discovered by the Syndicate, and as they attempted to escape Ryn III, they were pursued and fired upon by a Syndicate ship. Thex was injured in the attack, and died soon after due to his injuries. (TLE novel: Well of Souls)
