INTELLIGENCE REPORTS - USS Atlas

Responsible for gathering intelligence, they have the patience to read through a database for hours on end, and the cunning to coax information from an unwilling giver.

Subject: Namadolians

=/\= REPORT BEGINS =/\=

The planetary body categorized as Hapke 8026-5a is primarily aquatic in nature. The current dominant species is chordatic in origin and finds underwater existence preferable to terrestrial based existence. Their diet is largely dependant on live undersea creatures. Cooking is somewhat foreign to the Namadolians, although in recent years, due to various races visiting their planet as a tourist destination they have started experimenting with other types of food preparation.

The planet itself has reached a technology level roughly equivalent to 2200s Earth and have had warp capacity for approximately 50 years. Their general level of technology is less sophisticated than Federation standard technology.

The society tends towards a bartering system for trade, preferring to work with items that are more desirable and rare for commerce, dilithium was mentioned as something very much in need as a trade medium. This is very common with new warp capable species, as their need for the crystals for their warp engines is still at a nascent stage.

The Namadolians were hospitable and friendly to the crew of USS Atlas, likely because of their previous dealings with USS Maxwell. They are intelligent and thoughtful, showing a strong level of inquisitiveness and they seem to appreciate the same in return.

The Namadolians have abandoned organized religion in favour of scientific pursuits, believing that the two are incompatible. This is not uncommon for species at their level of development. This indicates a possibility for science to become the medium of worship or will potentially pave the way for a spiritual revival at some point if they follow common trends in development. That will, of course, remain to be seen. I have sought to acquire copies of their society’s myths and legends in case they may become useful to us in the future.

These myths and legends will feed well into the various finds recently uncovered underwater on Nehan. Two columns with writing similar to those uncovered under Pinastri but far older and what looks like the sarcophagus of, if the inscription is true, a god. The name was Akil-Tahuti, which translates as “Intelligent One, God of the Land, Sky and Seas”. The inscription homes that he can travel with us, whoever us is, to the stars and find a new home. The investigation into this matter continues but seems to bind Nehan to Pinastri.

Intelligence Report

Stardate: 220927
Type: Aggressive Species/Faction Report

Subject:Kazon-Edozuk
Classification: Aggressive Group/Government
First Encountered: 2418
Locations: Al Suran Sector Block, 017L
Syllerran Sector Block, 004FF, Hapke 8722.1

Security Data Level: Level 2

=/\= REPORT BEGINS =/\=

Isolated from other Kazon and other space-faring races, the Kazon-Edozuk, led by Maje Vogark have carved out a little spot for themselves in the Al Suran Sector. While not outwardly expansionist or aggressive, the Edozuk are mostly interested in being left alone and isolationist to the point that they will destroy others chancing upon them. Unlike other Kazon tribes, they do not seek to acquire the technology of other peoples. Despite their not employing other peoples’ technology, they seem to be advancing and thriving. Currently their phaser systems are equivalent to Federation Standard, their shields are slightly less than Federation Standard, and they employ a pulse wave photonic torpedo system. While the photonic torpedo is less effective than Federation Standard photon torpedoes, the pulse wave allows it to ‘cut through’ some of the shielding of vessels, evening some of the damage and odds.

The Kazon-Edozuk split from the Oglamar rather spectacularly after Voyager was encountered. Those in the Edozuk wanting to remain separate and apart from Starfleet, not wishing to invite conflict where it was unnecessary while the Oglamar famously was belligerent towards Voyager.

It has been confirmed that the Kazon-Edozuk are exploring past the Hapke Cluster. It is likely that they have started this exploration so they have the best chance of establishing new territories without running into other Kazon, Romulan, or Starfleet groups there. On stardate 220927, the Kazon-Edozuk encountered USS Atlas. The Atlas was surveying a Class L planet, looking for mineral wealth that could help allies in the area. They Edozuk claimed the planetary area and, in short order, attacked USS Atlas when they did not move up fast enough. The Atlas was able to hold their own against several Kazon vessels, however they were penetrating shields, making them dangerous and problematic in the region. This seems to be part of at least a Kazon-Edozuk expansion effort and possibly a larger push by several Kazon factions.
