|Position|| Lieutenant Commander
Salek was a male Vulcan engineer in Starfleet in the 24th century. As of 2374, Salek held the rank of Commander, and was assigned to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. He served as first officer of the USS da Vinci, and the head of that ship's SCE team.
Salek had joined the S.C.E. as a lieutenant commander, against the advice of his sister, who instead suggested he join the all-Vulcan crew of the USS T'Kumbra. Salek rejected this advice, being unconcerned about working amongst emotional races, and also due to the fact that the T'Kumbra offered no opportunity for advancement.
Salek died in late 2375 (circa 52698.1), when he sacrificed himself to deactivate an alien vessel called Dancing Star, as well as to defend the da Vinci from a Cardassian warship, the Grach'noyl.
