Minister B'Tardat of the Kaelon II Science Ministry

The Kaelon II Science Ministry was a governmental research institute on Kaelon II.

Doctor Timicin worked for the Science Ministry trying to find a way to revitalize the Kaelon sun.

The Ministry was headed by Minister B'Tardat in late 2367. When Doctor Timicin refused to beam down to the planet and undergo his Resolution, the Science Ministry refused any further contact with the outcast and B'Tardat ordered two Kaelon warships to approach the USS Enterprise-D.
