First Minister Shakaar Edon in 2373.

Shakaar Edon was a Bajoran resistance leader, who later became the First Minister of Bajor following the Cardassian withdrawal.

Shakaar was the leader of the Shakaar Resistance Cell against the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. Following the end of the occupation he became a farmer. A well respected man and leader he ran for the office of First Minister in 2371 and was elected. (DS9: "Shakaar")

Shakaar again found his life under threat from Cardassians early in his term when the Cardassian terrorist group made several attempts on his life during a visit to Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Crossfire")

He had a brief relationship with Kira Nerys, who was a former member of his resistance cell. (DS9: "Crossfire", "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places", "The Begotten", "Children of Time")

Shakaar ordered all Bajoran to leave Deep Space 9 prior to the Dominion attack on the station. (DS9: "Call to Arms")

Shakaar led Bajor during the Dominion War, keeping it nominally neutral but a de facto Federation ally. Shakaar's government also prevented the Romulan Star Empire from fortifying a Bajoran moon, even ordering the Bajoran Militia to blockade the moon in the face of the Romulan Star Navy. (DS9: "Images in the Sand", "Shadows and Symbols")

Alternate continuities[edit | edit source]

DS9 Relaunch[edit | edit source]

In 2376, during a goodwill tour of the Federation, Shakaar Edon was infested by a Parasite; the Parasite infesting him forced him to issue orders to Second Minister Asarem Wadeen to stonewall peace negotiations with the Cardassian Union; at the ceremony signing the documents bringing Bajor into the Federation, Shakaar was assassinated by Hiziki Gard, a joined Trill who had discovered his infestation status.

Star Trek: Pendragon[edit | edit source]

In the Pendragon timeline, Constable Odo was still trapped on Earth when Shakaar visited Deep Space 9 in 2372. Because of that, the True Way succeeded in assassinating Shakaar, and he died in the arms of Kira Nerys. His death at such a crucial stage fractured the Bajoran Provisional Government, and almost five years of political infighting began on Bajor. (Star Trek: Pendragon: "True North", "Restoration")
