According to the theology of Ventax II, Ardra was a mythic being from the distant past who promised the population a thousand years of prosperity, followed by enslavement upon her return at the end of that epoch. In 2367, a female con artist was unmasked by Enterprise-D personnel after deceiving the Ventaxians into believing she was the deity by using technology to mimic various phenomena believed to herald Ardra's return.
