In the mirror universe, Ke Hovath (2345-2377) was a Bajoran male who was a professor at the Sidau College of Physics during the late 24th century. Intendant Kira Nerys recruited him from the College to serve in the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance's Research and Development Branch.
In late 2376, Kira commissioned Professor Ke to make certain upgrades to the inter-dimensional transport device constructed by Miles O'Brien. After the Intendant insisted that Ke finish the project alone, Ke did so in January 2377, just before the IKS Negh'Var reached Harkoum. Only when he had finished did he realize that the device was now capable of transport to any parallel universe and not just the primary universe that the device had originally been built to access. After this realization, the Intendant killed Ke by poisoning the wine which they drank together. Kira had already taken the last dose of the antidote. (DS9 novel: Warpath)
