Ushaump Shal was a criminal shapeshifter. His previous identities have included Gervan Bollore, T'Gan O'Sullivan, and Joan Basilone. He most recently posed as Beylanesh Semu, a supposed engineer in Starfleet.
In 2398, while posing as Semu, Shal recovered a hexagon device that was in storage aboard the USS Veritas for the Cobalt Clan, the local Andorian mafia on Donova IV. Having no further use for him, he was disposed of by the ruthless criminal organization shortly after.
