Ketteract was a 23rd century Starfleet physicist who synthesized a single Omega molecule.

Ketteract, motivated by creating a new energy source, proposed a method to synthesize Omega molecules to Starfleet and was provided a classified research station in the Lantaru sector. However, the experiment went awry and the energy released from his creation killed Ketteract and 126 of his research colleagues. As a secondary effect, it also ripped open the fabric of subspace and made the sector impassable to standard warp drive travel. (VOY: "The Omega Directive")
