For the similarly-named Maquis member, please see Amaros.
Crewman Amaro was a security officer stationed on board Deep Space 9 in 2373. He and Stolzoff had been classmates at Starfleet Academy.
Amaro and several others volunteered for a salvage operation on board Empok Nor. Unfortunately the station held two members of the Cardassian Third Battalion, First Order 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 killed 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. (DS9: "Empok Nor")
According to the script for this episode, the pronunciation for Amaro was " uh-MAR-oh".
