Edos

Home planet of Lt. Arex, the Enterprise navigator from 2269-70, and the tripodal Edosian race. Edos lies in the Triangulum constellation, on the rim of the galaxy. It is a jumping-off point for science teams studying the great energy barrier beyond the rim. It is also a peaceful planet which has never been involved in a war. The technology is as advanced as Earth's; the architectural style of its cities is strictly functional rather than aesthetically pleasing. The society has no class levels. All beings on Edos are equal.

Edos is not a member of the Federation. Rather, it remains in loose alliance with the Federation, coming under its agreements for trade, science, and aid in an emergency.

Because Edosians have a long life cycle, it is highly unusual for there to be more than one child per family, for the sake of keeping the population down. As a result, all children are precious, and families are close. Ancestral records are kept in great detail, dating back for centuries. For example, Arex's line can be traced for 3,000 years.

Galador II

The homeworld of -- or at least a neighboring planet to -- the Galador race, and the supposed origination of the trade route of a freighter later found to be the cover for the Maquis who kidnapped Dukat from Deep Space Nine.

merchant ship, Federation

Unspecified ship attacked in the Demilitarized Zone by two Cardassian settlers' private attack craft who believed it to be bringing arms to the former United Federation of Planets colonists; Hudson later says it was bringing medical supplies to Soltok IV. It is saved by more rogue Federation ships — a battle Commander Sisko and Dukat view only by long-range sensors after detecting its distress call. Evek says it had refused to be boarded.

Plomeek Soup

A traditional Vulcan soup (pronounced "PLOH-meek").

Chapel tried to serve some to Spock during the onset of his pon farr. She got the bowl thrown at her for her trouble, creating a public scene in the corridor. Quark included it among the meal prepared to romance the Vulcan woman Sakonna of the Maquis. (He betrayed his lack of knowledge, however, by pronouncing it "PLOW-meek.") At the Replimat, Bashir once enjoyed some with a touch of basil. On Voyager, Neelix served Tuvok a bowl — but he couldn't resist tinkering with the Vulcan standard. On the Enterprise NX-01, Ensign Cutler once tried some in an attempt to befriend T'Pol.

Amaros

A male Maquis member from Volan III, one of several who abducted Gul Dukat from Deep Space 9 in 2370. Amaros worked in conjunction with former Starfleet commander Calvin Hudson to free Federation colonists from Cardassian control in the DMZ, but was a public face as a member of the Volan III council. Though he had some flight experience and joined Hudson in one of the two existing Maquis fighter crafts, he did not share Hudson's resolve under fire.

Lucien

Appearing as a brown-skinned satyr with two horns and a bare torso, Lucien is a magic-wielder on Megas-Tu. A generalist practitioner among the specialists of his world, he was known as a troublemaker. In 2269 (stardate: 1254.4), he helps the Enterprise crew because he does not want to continue to isolate his people. At some point in Earth's past, he visited there and loved the planet, but eventually returned to Megas-Tu. A fellow Megan revealed his other name was "Lucifer," but whether that was the Lucifer of religious import has not been established. One of Lucien's magic words is "Rhadamanthus," though he generally casts magic spells by gesturing with an open palm.

Soltok

Star, located either in the Demilitarized Zone or just adjacent to it on the United Federation of Planets side, with at least four planets.

Rom


DS9 STATION RESIDENCE DATABASE FILE: Rom
**Includes updates, addenda through SD 52650 (2375)

Occupation: Ferengi Grand Nagus (formerly DS9 maintenance/repair diagnostician, junior grade)
Full Name: Rom
Species: Ferengi
Birth: Mid-2330s
Place of birth: Ferenginar
Parents: Keldar and Ishka
Siblings: A brother, Quark
Children: One son, Nog, born ca. 2354

Marital Status: Married to Leeta, a Bajoran, Stardate 50975; previously married to Prinadora (marriage contract dissolved)

Psychological Profile: Report of Starfleet Counselor Telnorri, Bajoran Sector Addendum: Security Chief Odo

Although Quark's long-suffering and diminutive younger brother has long been a pitiful sight, amid recent events it appears that Rom is at last standing up for himself.

Rom was often teased by other children, led by Quark, about his smaller lobes and about supposedly being adopted; the nickname of "Moogie" for his mother has been a lifelong habit since an early age. His father's Naming Day presents to him were swapped for old vegetables by Quark, who resold the gifts at a profit over what Keldar had paid.

After the birth of his son Nog ca. 2354, he left home on Ferenginar for good in 2361 — 10 years after Quark did — but not before witnessing firsthand his father's lack of business sense as his brother never had the chance to. Long subservient to Quark and the target of his public ridicule, Rom could have been a starship chief engineer, his son later says, if he hadn't given up a mechanical career to "be a good Ferengi" and seek profit — the reason Nog wants to avoid such a life and be in Starfleet; neither one has "the lobes" for business.

Rom was living on DS9 by 2369, where he was forced to temporarily give up his quarters across the hall from Quark's for the Nagus visit, and allowed Nog to attend Keiko's school on the station only if it helped his inter-cultural sense for profit-making.

A year later, he briefly owned a fourth of rival bar Club Martus across from Quark's; just before, his share of Quark's bar profits was dropped from one-seventh to one-eighth of the take. Accused by Odo of a murder attempt on Quark, he later helped capture the would-be assassin on his second try. Jealous of Pel's newfound friendship with Quark, he exposed "him" as a female during a visit by Grand Nagus Zek in 2370. The next year, he atoned for his involvement with the transcendent Nagus' attitude by embezzling from his short-lived Ferengi Benevolent Association.

After crossing his brother over his treatment of their feminist rebel mother, he stood up to him even more strongly to support Nog's historic admission to Starfleet Academy in late 2371; like any proud Ferengi papa, he ran the sale of Nog's personal effects in the bar as the teen raised capital to leave home for the Academy — and claimed his son's pajamas.

His newfound backbone grew even more by the next year, when he single-handedly organized a union of Quark's employees, defied his brother and the Ferengi Commerce Authority, and then resigned after they secretly won to join the station's maintenance crews — a show of independence that was perhaps the biggest shock yet to Quark. His growing renown for engineering feats grew in 2372, when he performed theoretical jury-rigging to rescue his family and Odo from a time-trip back to 1947 Earth, and later saved the DS9 senior staff by adapting an interface between the holosuites and the Defiant transporter to restore their beaming patterns. Actually, Rom had always had the ability — he just had lacked the confidence.

Rom is far from an innocent, though: he routinely breaks in to use furniture, linens, food and drink for the bar and Quark's personal stores; he denies shaving the latinum there — mostly. Rom used to live across the hall from Quark and made his son Nog do all the housecleaning in lieu of his own messiness; there's no word what it looks like since the teen left for Starfleet Academy.

Update: Rom was married to Leeta on stardate 50975. (Perhaps emboldened by his new Bajoran love, during the Dominion war, Rom was very active in the Bajoran Resistance to the Cardassian/Dominion occupation of DS9.) In 2375, Rom was appointed to succeed Zek as the Ferengi Grand Nagus. Rom's embracing of Zek's proposed social reforms was key in the Grand Nagus' decision. Rom's son, Nog, returned to DS9 and, at one time, roomed with Jake Sisko.

Psychological Profile: Report of Starfleet Counselor Telnorri, Bajoran Sector, Stardate 50500

Rom's supervisors, from Chief O'Brien on down, have continued to offer glowing reports on his progress in station maintenance, despite the coercion to sabotage he experienced from the chief when Mrs. O'Brien was possessed by a cast-out Prophets alien. To recognize the sacrifice and stress this trial caused, he was promoted to the day shift in waste extraction.

Rom has also continued to gain the attention of former co-worker Leeta, who formalized her departure from Dr. Bashir with a Bajoran Rite of Separation and has continued to tell him of her culture, including Bajoran legends. Snail juice, with extra shells, remains a favorite beverage, but he has sampled human breakfasts on his work cycle such as O'Brien's.

Family relations have improved with his independence from Quark, and even Rom played a role — unacknowledged, of course — in helping stabilize his brother's recovery from a Dorek syndrome misdiagnosis late last year and the subsequent visit by FCA agent Brunt over Quark's contract for his desiccated remains. Rom recently enjoyed seeing his son Nog return to the station for his sophomore field study from Starfleet Academy, but continued to wonder when his neat streak would end.

Volan

Alpha Quadrant star with at least three planets, the second and third at least Class M and inhabited, which was formerly in United Federation of Planets space until the Cardassian peace treaty left it in the Demilitarized Zone.

Amaros

Origin: name unknown. The name of a human male Volan III settler on the colony's council who was among those arguing with Evek about the attacks on the Federation Merchant Ship when Commander Sisko and Dukat showed up and fellow colonist Bill Samuels was revealed to have died in Cardassian hands. Amaros was later in the party that kidnapped Dukat from Deep Space Nine and among those interrogating the Gul when Commander Sisko's group came in and Constable Odo captured him. Yet, in the end, Amaros was released to let Hudson know Commander Sisko was willing to let him come back. His council meeting was also later interrupted by Commander Sisko. Though he had some flight experience and joined Hudson in one of the two existing Maquis fighter crafts, Sisko did not share Hudson's resolve under fire.

Communicator

A portable transceiver device in use by Starfleet crews since the mid-22nd century.

Earlier versions were designed as a hand-held device with a hardware control interface and a flip-up antennae grid/activator, but by the 2340s the communicator functions had been built into the metallic uniform insignia "combadge" worn on the left breast, activated by touch or voice.

Among many uses, communicators serve as locator IDs for gaining a transporter lock on personnel.
