"I am First Omet'iklan, and I am dead. As of this moment, we are all dead. We go into battle to reclaim our lives. This we do gladly, for we are Jem'Hadar. Remember, victory is life."
- - Omet'iklan in 2372
Omet'iklan was a Jem'Hadar First in service of the Dominion. In 2372, Omet'iklan commanded a unit under the Vorta Weyoun, whose attack ship was set upon by a group of rogue Jem'Hadar who had seized an Iconian gateway on Vandros IV. Omet'iklan and five of his surviving men were transported aboard the USS Defiant before their ship exploded.
Under Weyoun's orders, Omet'iklan reluctantly agreed to a joint mission with the Defiant officers to destroy the gateway on Vandros IV. Omet'iklan regarded the Vorta with contempt for their belief that the Jem'Hadars' loyalty can only be kept by deception and ketracel-white. Omet'iklan was a vicious disciplinarian who killed his Second, Toman'torax, for attacking Lieutenant Commander Worf. When Sisko refused to do the same to Worf, Omet'iklan promised to kill Sisko when the mission was over. During the attack against the rebel Jem'Hadar, Sisko saved Omet'iklan's life, which surprised him. After they successfully accomplished their mission, Omet'iklan killed Weyoun for questioning his loyalty earlier by attempting to withhold the information about the gateway.
Omet'iklan did not carry out his threat to kill Sisko, but he did tell him that the next time they met it would be as enemies. He and his unit elected to remain on Vandros IV to hunt down the remaining rogue Jem'Hadar. (DS9: "To the Death")
Two years later, following the outbreak of full-scale war, Sisko recalled Omet'iklan's actions to Remata'Klan, whose unit had crashed on the same deserted planet, hoping to turn him against his treacherous Vorta, Keevan (who hoped to see the Jem'Hadar die before they ran out of white and killed everything in their path, including him) - he was unsuccessful, and Remata'klan was killed in a suicidal attack.
