Overcrowded holding cell

Benten Vek, one of the prisoners in a holding cell

Benten Vek was a Bajoran who lived on Terok Nor during the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor.

In 2366, Benten was arrested and placed in a holding cell. While in the holding cell, Benten was told by Odo that his fine had been paid and that he was free to go within the hour. (DS9: "Things Past")

Benten Vek was played by an unknown performer.
Benten might have been named for the character from the Japanese anime and manga series Urusei Yatsura, which has been a popular target for such references, Benten herself being referenced at least one other time.
