Jal Valek was the First Maje of the Kazon-Oglamar.

In 2372, Loran was approached by Culluh of the Kazon-Nistrim, who wished to form an alliance to defeat USS Voyager and take its technology. Together with Maje Loran of the Kazon-Hobii and Maje Surat of the Kazon-Mostral he was invited to a briefing with Culluh aboard his Kazon raider. When Voyager located the Raider and attempted to free Commander Chakotay who had been held captive by Culluh and Seska, the four Majes were beamed aboard the Federation's ship's transporter room and only released after Chakotay had been recovered. (VOY: "Maneuvers")

During Captain Janeway's attempt to form an alliance that would unite the Kazon sects, Valek was present at a meeting on Sobras. The meeting turned out to be a trap set by the Trabe Mabus, with whom Janeway had also allied. (VOY: "Alliances")

Valek was played by background actor Mark Major in "Maneuvers" and by regular stunt actor Johnny Martin in "Alliances". Both received no credit for their performance.
Major filmed his scenes for "Maneuvers" on 19 September 1995 and 20 September 1995 on Paramount Stage 9 and 16.
