Klingon Races: Orion

Updated Thu, Jan 28, 2010 by Dalmarus

Orions are originally from the planet Orion, but they have abandoned that homeland and now live throughout the Klingon Empire.

Known for their distinctly green skin, Orion males are typically bald and muscular. Orion females are alluring and known for their grace and beauty. The pheromones of female Orions can make males of many species susceptible to suggestions. Vulcans are immune to this effect.

Orion smugglers and raiders have been plaguing the Alpha Quadrant since the 22nd century, when they organized into the Orion Syndicate. By the late 24th century, the Syndicate was a multi-species crime cartel that spanned most of the quadrant. However, in the late 2390s, Melani D'ian, the "Emerald Empress" of the Syndicate, rose to power and expelled or assassinated all non-Orion members.
