Director Amkot Groell was a Bajoran. During the Occupation of Bajor, Amkot was a collaborator, a fact that some still resented him for. However, he managed to keep the Okana Shipyards open by convincing the Cardassians that he was running a museum. In 2370, he oversaw the construction of the USS Hannibal at the Okana Shipyards on Bajor. However, the construction of the ship was almost completely controlled by remnants of the Circle. They threatened Amkot and told him who to hire and fire; they allowed the ship to be built to hone the skills of the Bajoran workers. When an explosion at the shipyards nearly killed Commander Benjamin Sisko and Major Kira Nerys he witheld the information about the Circle. He later opened up to Major Kira and told her that he regretted allowing her to nearly be killed. He told her that the Hannibal was the one thing in his life he was proud of. He also agreed to tell her who had threatened him. However, just after the launch of the Hannibal he committed suicide, and never revealed who had threatened him. (DS9 novel: Antimatter)
