Vedeks were high-ranking clerics of the Bajoran religion. The Vedek Assembly was a body on Bajor made up of selected vedeks.

The vedeks of the Vedek Assembly were responsible for electing the kai from among their number. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "The Collaborator")

In Christian terms, a vedek is closely equivalent to a bishop, with those sitting on the Assembly equivalent to Roman Catholic cardinals.

Alternate realities[edit | edit source]

In the mirror universe vedeks often helped Vulcan and Terran slaves escape from the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance at great risk to their own lives ("A Debt of Honor", "The Gift").

In an alternate universe where the Pah-Wraiths claimed dominance over Bajor, Pah-Wraith clergy at this level also referred to themselves as "vedeks." (Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--Catacombs of Oralius stories)
