Amaro (portrayed by Jeffrey King) was a Starfleet security officer who joined Miles O'Brien's salvage team in the Deep Space Nine episode "Empok Nor". Unfortunately the Empok Nor station held two members of Cardassian First Order, Third Battalion, who had been given psychotropic drugs to enhance their natural xenophobia. The soldiers killed Stolzoff, Pechetti, and Boq'ta before they were killed. Amaro was stabbed with a flux coupler by Elim Garak, whose mind had been affected by contact with the drugs. After returning to normal, Garak asked Miles O'Brien to express his regrets to Amaro's wife.
