Star Trek makeups: Kimara Cretak

DS9: Kimara Cretak

Kimara Cretak was a member of the Romulan Senate during part of the Dominion War, and she was also the Romulan representative to Deep Space Nine.

Although she was a firm supporter of the Romulans’ alliance with the Federation and the Klingons, Section 31 (a clandestine arm of Starfleet Intelligence) plotted to remove Cretak so that she could be replaced as a candidate for the Romulan Continuing Committee by a Federation operative. Section 31 manipulated Doctor Bashir into unwittingly setting her up; she was arrested and probably imprisoned for treason, if not executed.

Kimara Cretak appeared in three episodes of Deep Space Nine; in the first two she was played by Megan Cole but in the third episode, featuring her entrapment and trial, she was played by Adrienne Barbeau.
