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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
