Ungtae was a Bajoran male and a Vedek in the Bajoran religion in the 24th century.

In late 2375, after Winn Adami was killed by Skrain Dukat in the Fire Caves, Quark began running bets on who would become the new Kai of Bajor. He told Colonel Kira Nerys "the smart money" was on Ungtae. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

Three months later, it appeared Ungtae's chances of becoming Kai had faded, with it appearing the Vedek was almost out of the race. Vedek Yevir Linjarin had become one of the most popular candidates. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book One)

Kira Nerys respected Ungtae, calling him "a man of great faith, humble, maybe even wise". However, Kira also found him to be quite plain. Kira would have been quite happy for Ungtae to be elected Kai, although she would prefer someone who could inspire her people more. (DS9 - Mission Gamma novel: Twilight)
