Saturnian Primitive

Saturnian Primitives are a fictional race of humanity, genetically engineered possesses superhuman strength and stamina, as cheap labor force for the Corporation. Saturnian Primitives were a slave race created by the The Red Saturnian  Primatives are highly civilized, respect the idea of private property, adhere to a code of honor and have a strong sense of fairness. Their culture is governed by law and is advanced technologically. They are capable of love and have families.Technicians,mechanics

, an advanced offshoot of humanity. Because of the off world Terran space miners low population of survival, within the upper atmosphere of the Titan of Jupiter, even within special reinforced ship they created a labor force of hominids bred to be strong, but of limited intelligence-at least at first. Later on. in the future, many future generations of Saturnian  Primitives gained more intelligence, as the race gained more experience. The term Saturnian  Primitives began as a put down, as to make primitive or primal, caveman like ,but the Saturnian s turned the insult into a badge of humor.

Saturnian Primitives fights for survival with their huge, Saturnian Corporation Mining Ships and many homeworld and colony planet, that they encounter. Raised in a savage world that should prepare them for what battles he may encounter as the series continues. The Saturnian are a multi colored skinned race of people native to the world of Saturnian.

Saturnian Primatives 

"Empires may come and go, but Saturnian gold is eternal." -- Saturnian proverb.

The Saturnian , also called  Saturnian  Primitives were a race from the Beta Quadrant famous for their involvement in many criminal endeavors: piracy, slavery, and the Saturnian  Syndicate. They primarily inhabited the Saturnian Colonies.

The Saturnian  homeworld is variously stated to be either' 'Jovian/Saturnian  VIII (Botchok),' 'Jovian/Saturnian  VII (Kolar), a world in the' 'Pi-[ Saturnian is' 'system, or more generally, the planet "Saturn ".

In their own language, they were referred to as Ur'eon. or Kolari.. The name "Saturnian " was derived from the Saturnian  constellation..

The Saturnian  had a number of sub-races, including the Green Saturnian  (covered here), the Ruddy Saturnian , the Grey Saturnian , the rare halfbreeds, and muni, or 'blends', consisting of other colors and races. They absorbed a number of other races into their culture, also known as Saturnian but of limited numbers or presence... These absorbed races might include the Etoshans and Duthulhiv,.. a gray-skinned reptilian variety. and a slimy purple variety.[.

The following information is either specific to Green Saturnian, or assumed to be without evidence otherwise. However, with different sub races and gender differences, and various contradictions, some of the following information could apply to one or another of the sub races, or be specific to a gender.

Saturnian were humanoids that possessed the same size and build of an average Human, though they could range from slightly smaller to somewhat taller and more massive, or more slender. Average heights ranged from [. [to [ meters, with average mass ranging from [[ to [[ kilograms. Males averaged at [. [meters and [[ kilograms, while females averaged at [.[ meters and [[ kilograms. They are a green-skinned species similar to humans in many aspects. They are of similar size to humans, and have a variety of hair colors known colors include grey, black, blonde, and brown. Some members of the species have been depicted with beards. The rarest feature depicted amongst these people is pointed ears. Saturnians, with the exception of pointed ears are exactly similar to the sister race the Jovian’s.

Their external physical characteristics were close to those of humans, though their features tended towards aquiline noses and sharp chins. However, Saturnian physiology and copper-based blood chemistry were more similar to that of a Vulcan, with skin tones ranging from emerald to dark olive greens.[.[.., due to both their copper blood and the chlorophyll in their skin cells.[. This green skin darkened in strong sunlight.. They could have either green blood, [. or orange blood.[..

Black was the most common eye-color, followed by lighter shades of green. Some Saturnian (called "erratic) had very different eye colors: blue, brown, gold, yellow, even pink and silver.. Saturnian women could have very distinctive bright blue eyes.. Ocular compounds to treat vision disorders, such as Retinax V did not work well on Saturnian..

Some Saturnian tended to be hairy, with body hair common among both men and women, which was seen as a mark of distinction, though baldness in older men was not uncommon. Generally, they had thick black hair with metallic green highlights.. Hair was generally black or chestnut brown.[.. However, a great many Saturnian were seen to be practically hairless, with even young men bald and lacking body hair.[.[. In old age, they developed white hair.[.

The Saturnian evolved under a blue-white sun with a similar spectrography to Jovian/Saturnian , with that system possibly being their home system. Thanks to their chlorophyll, their green-pigmented skin absorbed ultraviolet radiation, keeping them relatively immune to its harmful effects and somewhat resistant to radiation in general.[.. They were possibly naturalized stabilized against radiation, in the manner of a radiation stabilizer..

They were also physically stronger than most other humanoid races (save Vulcans),.[. though their musculature and powerful builds may have been due in part to a life of manual labor.. They also had increased endurance. Though highly charismatic, they had reduced intelligence and capacity for psionics..

They had metabolic ratios quite different from that of a human [. and a [[degree difference in body temperature [.(whether higher or lower is not clear), and Saturnian  gourmands tended toward obesity, with no member of the species enjoying the concept of being underweight..

They lived about [[standard years,. with the effects of old age setting in after [[..

A pancreas was once successful transplanted between an Saturnian  and an Saturnian Cape buffalo.[.

Saturnian, or the women at least, needed a number of short sleeps, instead of one long one.[.

[. '[Pheromones Edit'

Saturnian tended to smell, not due to lack of hygiene as some believed, but due to their natural skin oils. Distinctive, though not unpleasant, the scent was unnoticeable after a few minutes of exposure. However, it was heavily laden with pheromones that affected the subconscious of most humanoid races. The effect was soothing, and ten minutes in a sizable group of Saturnian drained tension. Saturnian found it hard to stay angry in a group, but a strong emotion, such as rage, fear or desire, altered the scent, and though it did not compel others, it did make them susceptible to that particular mood. Unless a humanoid was aware of this, they could find their emotions subtly altered. It was hazardous to be among a group of angry, frightened or panicky Saturnian, as their mood was literally contagious..

Saturnian females also produced large amounts of a powerful chemical pheromone that generally acted like a love potion.[.[. It had a range of effects on different species and sexes. In a Human male (and likely in males of most humanoid races, including Saturnian ), it accelerated the metabolism and increased adrenaline levels, inducing aggression and delusion, and generally making him highly suggestible to the Saturnian  woman who produced it. In this way, they became enthralled to the Saturnian woman. Human females, on the other hand, suffered a different, more negative effect, experiencing headaches and lethargy. Denobulan males experienced interrupted sleep cycles and extreme tiredness while Vulcan women were immune to any effects. Human males that were telepathically linked to a female Vulcan could also become immune to the pheromone.[. A Kalladon  male could experience a pheromonal shock due to the rush of hormones; allegedly, this could potentially be deadly for a young male.[. This made Kalladon s especially susceptible to a Saturnian woman’s influence.[.

The effects of the pheromones were cumulative, such that a longer or more intense exposure resulted in more pronounced symptoms. Doctor Phlox postulated in -  that the pheromones acted as a defensive mechanism against competition.[.

Saturnian males apparently had similar pheromones to their women, though they were much less pronounced.[.

[. [Saturnian women' Edit'

File:Alien Spotlight  Saturnian .jpg Leata, an Saturnian  woman.Saturnian  women were famously irresistibly sexually attractive, and though some of this reputation may have derived from marketing hype by dealers in Saturnian  slave girls, most Saturnian  women were considered beautiful and charming seducers.[.They were known for their extreme "appetites" and very few men were known to be able to resist their approaches.[. They had a heat cycle that drove their mating instincts, which increased when they were 'in heat'.[.

Saturnian women had long, sharp nails, almost like claws, which they could use as weapons. They also had a much greater physical dexterity than Saturnian men.[.

There was thought to be a sub caste of the Saturnian race that possessed animalistic qualities, giving rise to the legend of the "Saturnian animal woman".[. They were claimed to be less intelligent and behaved in a semi-animalistic fashion.[. It was unknown if these traits indicated a subspecies or a genetic alteration [. or were simply a myth based on their legendary sexual appetites, violence and savage Saturnian behavior.. It may have derived simply from a lack of educational opportunities.[.

Saturnian pharmacologists developed a pheromonal treatment that vastly increased the user's sexual appeal at the risk of some degradation of the superego and other higher brain functions (resulting in, for example, animalistic impatience, blood-lust, reduced intelligence, inability to concentrate, a vulnerability to psychic assault, or a decreased will). This only worked on Saturnian. It might have been the origin of the myth of the Saturnian animal woman, or it might be developed to fulfill the myth and satisfy the resulting market..

Each source introduces the Saturnian animal woman then suggests a different means by which it is likely to be a myth. Thus, they probably don't exist.' 'Deciphers' 'mirror universe Saturnian ' 'keep an animalistic sub-caste however. It also unknown to what extent' 'Saturnian slave girls' 'overlap with Saturnian animal women; the terms are generally interchangeable.

[. [Saturnian men' Edit'

Saturnian  males could shrug off a low-powered phaser hit (such as from a hand phaser or Phaser One) with only minor injuries instead of death, unless a vital organ was struck..

[Psychology' Edit'

"There are three kinds of people I don't want to face while making a deal:' 'Vulcan' 'bankers,' 'Tellarite' 'lawyers, or anybody Saturnian." -- Carter Winston.

The Saturnian mind was complicated and thought in complicated ways, making them difficult for others to understand. There were five basic facets to the common Saturnian’s way of thinking: opportunism, egocentricity, materialism, hedonism, and barbarity.. They also had four primary motives: profit, loyalty, revenge, and spite..

[. ['Opportunism & Egocentricity'

Saturnian had a skill and reputation for finding advantages and comparing chances and risks, and the drive to seize an opportunity, no matter how unusual the means, and either profit or get away safely. This opportunism could make them very dangerous, but it was balanced by their flaws..

Their egocentricity made them confident and proud of their abilities and plans, of their cunning, strength, wealth and connections, and they weren’t afraid to show off and let everyone else know about it. This extended beyond themselves, making Saturnian proud of and loyal to their families, their companies and other groups they belonged to, their ships if they were spacefarers, to their stations in Saturnian society, and to the Saturnian species in general. These attitudes however could lead to overconfidence and showing off more than they should..

[. ['Materialism & Hedonism'

"Keep money, but do not keep it dear." -- Old Saturnian advice, learned from the Jovian/Saturnian lians.

Materialism was a dominant factor. An important, never-ignored ethical principle of the Saturnian was that value had to be given for value received, or in other words, that one couldn't get something for nothing. Everything had a cost, not just in money, but in time, effort, reputation or blood. Everything gained had a purpose, whether it was for personal enrichment, the sake of one's leader, revenge or other motives, though in the [[rd century there was a growing trend for Saturnian to trade value for intangibles that had little to do with seeking profit. These habits made them quite efficient and practical.. Thus, material value was a universal language, a necessary standard to rely on and the foundation of business and diplomacy. This was comfort and sincerity to the Saturnian. They were talented at estimating value, and cared deeply for material things. Everything had a price, even things that most others took for granted – a common Saturnian joke was the value of sunsets, clouds and dust. Saturnian mothers even sold cookies to their children (albeit with a loving kiss). Meanwhile, Saturnian slaves bartered their labor for food, shelter and protection.

As a result of this materialism, Saturnian were a hedonistic race, who lived as well as they could within their means and aimed to enjoy life as much as they could afford. There was no virtue in being or acting impoverished. Saturnian pursued extremes of luxury, comfort, fineries, entertainment, indulgence, and great displays of wealth and used these things to outdo and impress each other.. They tended to delight in partaking in the more civilized vices..Living well and letting others know about it was a point of pride, a display of their success and potential to help others achieve the same.

[.' [Barbarism & Decadence'

"If a Saturnian has not seen it, it does not exist" -- an ancient saying.

They were often called barbaric by members of other races, even Kalladon s, presumably for their practice of slavery, piracy and general hedonism. In return, some claimed to be merely decadent; they could not be barbarians after their long history, when they'd travelled through space when other races couldn’t cross their oceans. The Saturnian did not disagree with any negative portrayal of themselves; instead, they enjoyed their reputations. Being deceitful and treacherous had made them rich and helped them conquer worlds, and that was all they’d desired. They had no great racial destiny and thought it pointless to argue about it, even if they seemed stagnant and purposeless as a result..

With a lost heritage,. An ancient history and a decadent culture, that both overshadowed and liberated them, they were left cynical and materialistic, looking out only for themselves, seeking wealth and enjoying it, and leaving dreams of conquest, glory and utopian visions to others. The Saturnian called it being practical, [. tending to be realists and pragmatists who scoffed at all ideologies [. and felt that life was too short to waste on rules or morality.. Thus they were not bound by any set of restraints, rules, laws or codes of honor,.. Nor did they have an overarching philosophy to justify their behavior.[.

[. ['Loyalty & Leadership'

"Save your friends as you would save your profits." -- Old Saturnian advice, learned from the Jovian/Saturnian lians.

Saturnian customs and traditions encouraged group loyalty and mutual protection, [. and they were loyal to family, company and anything else they were a member of. They believed that true friends could never be bought, and that loyalty was bound to blood alone, and that while money could not replace love and devotion, it was more reliable..The strength of their loyalty was according to the responsibility and care the object of it took for them, the size of the group and the understanding its members had for one another. Greatest of all was one’s own family, which took total care of its members and demanded absolute loyalty in return, and small groups were almost as close-knit. Last was government, where loyalty and responsibility were both nearly nonexistent. In the middle lay companies and corporations. In general, the larger a group was, the less loyalty and responsibility was shared..

Because of this loyalty-spectrum, Saturnian had a reputation for treachery, selfishness and deceit. But while Saturnian society was fast-paced, turbulent and filled with twists of fortune, such behavior was not random or only selfish, but followed certain standards of conduct, with specific goals and ideals, in which they frequently rearranged their limits and obligations to one another.. Saturnian did not work at being treacherous; it was a byproduct of their self-centered world-view.. However, they were not anarchists, nor completely uncoordinated and uncooperative, but had a fine and often-used sense of compromise, negotiation, and give-and-take. When (not if) arrangements changed, new arrangements were made to suit the new situation..

Despite being individualists, Saturnian  admired and respected talented and charismatic leaders, particularly tahedrin (patriarchs) and rhadamanen (captains and arch executives), people who stood for an ideal, who could not be swayed, bought, or shamed, who proved their cluros. Such a person could undermine or even win over their foes, and get others to follow them. Saturnian trusted such a leader and would do almost anything for them, ignoring personal gain and ambition: workers and slaves labored hard for a good boss, pirates would die for a respected captain. Rather than surrendering their individualism or personal feelings to such a leader, they saw through them a greater goal, a shared profit, or a better future for everyone. But too many mistakes or too little gain would break the spell, and the leadership would collapse, with Saturnian reverting to plotting and selfishness – at least until the next great leader came along. Otherwise, Saturnian had little faith in government or impersonal authority..

Whatever the group or their loyalty, wearing uniforms and badges was not common, and Saturnian  did not ask for another's affiliation, family or employer, and if they were asked they were under no particular compulsion to reveal it. Saturnian rarely went even by their family names, unless they were particularly powerful. However, imposters falsely adopting a famous or powerful name risked a heavy punishment from actual members, who didn’t like being mocked and wished to protect their good name..

[. ['Revenge & Cluros'

Revenge and spite were important to the Saturnian , though they could go to great lengths to hide the depths of their loss, grief or rage from their foes, in keeping with their code of cluros, which encouraged self-control and a cool head. They could even join or become apparent friends with their hated target. All of this was to avoid alerting a foe until it was too late. Making an effort simply to spite another went against typical Saturnian greed and hedonism – there was no one word for 'spite' – but it held an attraction for that reason, and was easily rationalized.. Instead of treating these vendettas as matters of life and death, Saturnian played them as amusing games; only some held actual grudges.. Saturnian were known to swear vengeance oaths on their enemies, and could appreciate a desire for revenge in others.. They could also hire ganzu, or revenge societies, to get back at their enemies..

Said by some to be the highest expression of Saturnian  culture, the code of cluros, meaning 'cold' or 'coolness', was a code of conduct that encouraged self-control and a cool head, and attempted to curb their excesses. By cluros, an Saturnian  would attempt to hide their hurts, stay calm and even grinning in the face of danger or loss, and remain charming and polite to even their enemies and victims, no matter the provocation, all while attempting to get another to break theirs.. Thus, Saturnian were typically known for their charm and influence, with a ready tongue and a good attitude, and they’d project a personality somewhere between a stylish devil-may-care humor and cheerful self-confidence at their best, and a tired cynicism and brash arrogance at their worst. They enjoyed mocking and taunting helpless foes while charming powerful allies..

[. [Deception'

Nor were they above convincing both sides to fight against each other instead, as they were always happy to risk others for their own cause. They were equally willing to run from a fight that they could not win. They watched others instead, plotted and waited to backstab the victor at the right moment.. They were also shrewd and savvy, good at sensing lies, motives and subterfuge while masking their own intentions. They had a talent for conspiracy, intrigue and navigating a criminal underworld.[.. No Saturnian who could still speak was considered powerless, and all were talented at wielding power behind the scenes,. as well as obeying the letter of a law while evading its spirit..However, this did not mean that Saturnian necessarily lied, cheated and stole to get their way, no more so than any other race, as getting caught was bad for their reputation..

Few outsiders could say they understood Saturnian or knew the truth about them, and sources of information on them tended to disagree. This mystery was because Saturnian enjoyed puzzles, contradictions and paradoxes, and liked to sow confusion among outsiders and to tell lies,., often misleading both each other and non-Saturnian  about their true motives. They felt no need to clear up misconceptions about them. To the Saturnian, knowledge was power, and confusion and misconception a weapon..

[. [Care & Love'

A high ideal of Saturnian was to become so successful that they could care for others; this manifested in owning slaves, starting a family, founding a colony, and in a wealthy corporation taking good care of its employees. It was a mark of ostentation that one's people were well cared for; the better they lived, the better one looked. Such care and responsibility also earned loyalty, respect and trust..

Saturnian believed that true love lasted forever, whether it was between friends, partners or life-mates. This love lasted past death or when another partner entered the picture, and was respected and honored. When a friend or lover died, this continuing love honored their memory.[.

[. [Suicide & Life'

"Why do you think my people have been able to maintain our operations for so long, so secretly and well, Captain Kirk? It is because all unsuccessful Saturnian missions end in suicide. When possible, we enjoy company." – An Saturnian pirate captain [.

Despite a general love of life and self-centeredness, Saturnian had a long history of committing suicide, either by doing it themselves or by provoking others into killing them. Their reasons could be to uphold their causes, to preserve the secrecy of their missions and their neutrality, to get revenge on their foes and to save themselves from being captured, and even at the order of a respected captain. Well-known examples of Saturnian  suicide ranged from the legend of Lady Katam to the martyrdom of Julin Hyrax the Brave to the Laxala Incident,. and the common practice of destroying one's own ship and any nearby enemies, used by the Saturnian  Space Navy, pirates and desperate merchants alike..[.[.[. One particular form of suicide was Vyun-pashan.

However, this did not mean that life and death were cheap to the Saturnian. Suicide was a last resort, when all other options had been exhausted, and it was intended for the good of one's people at the cost of oneself. It could be carefully planned, and preparations were both mental and physical, and took a great deal of courage. Even so, when even suicide would not meet their goals, they would choose to live. They had an essential respect for life, and would act to preserve it where possible. At heart, their morals were sound, even if the practice and face of it was not.[.

The above paragraph is taken entirely from speculation from' 'James T. Kirk, thus it may not necessarily be true, but it's probably intended to be.

Even pirates respected life, to a point. In a Saturnian pirate raid, compliant and unresisting crews were usually left unharmed. Pirates who took captives and hostages took cares not to mistreat them while they sought a ransom. If they could not get one, then they generally stranded them some place. Pirates who killed off innocent captives just to save some money horrified other Saturnian, who saw them as savage barbarians. Other pirates would even set a bounty on their heads to ensure that they were hunted down and killed for their crimes. However, crews that fought back after being boarded were free to be slaughtered...

This page details the various histories of the Saturnian  people and of the Saturnian Colonies and Empires.

There are several contradictory accounts of Saturnian history, with the most complete versions presented in the'. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG ' 'and in the' 'Last Unicorn/Decipher' NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG s', with other components appearing in various' 'novel' 'sources. These are presented in separate sections below for clarity, and merged only in the' '[[st century' 'and beyond.

 

 

[Saturnian history' Edit'

Saturnian records were a significant historical resource, with a huge volume of data and a wide variety of different media. But incredibly little of it was reliable, being rife subjective views, rampant falsification, and lazy scholarship. Saturnian historians and artists primarily presented the patrons' views, whether that of a family, a planet, or a business. For their side, victories in war and business were exaggerated, as were those of their foes, while defeats were downplayed or left out altogether. Accounts by the defeated were often destroyed to avoid contradiction with those of the victors. Some events were more myth and legend than history, with heroes and historical figures usually only partially detailed. Only the great Nallin the Unconquerable remained largely intact, but exploits alongside family ancestors were invented around him and reclaimed by later families..

 

Other histories were sanitized or designed to attack their enemies.. The dirty little secrets of Saturnian history were also swept under the rug, if not totally erased. A case in point was the Dispossession, which saw the deliberate and widespread purge of all history that related to Grey Saturnian , including of the Dispossession itself..

 

The records themselves were difficult to obtain without sufficient bribery of the appropriate officials, and often needed to be studied under trying circumstances without the ability to determine authenticity.. The more secret or more factual knowledge was even harder to find, depending on lucky discoveries of full and accurate records, intact archaeology, or a long and tedious compilation of pieces of knowledge from a wide range of sources.. However, despite these problems, there were so many sources for Saturnian history it was possible for historians to construct a reasonably balanced chronology, albeit with many holes..

 

 

[. [Archaeology' Edit'

Through the Guardian of Forever on the Time Planet, a research team consisting of Captain Kirk, Commander Spock, and Lieutenant Ted Erickson of Starfleet, and historians Grey and Loom Aleek-Om, visited the dawn of Saturnian  civilization in - .[.

 

The oldest Saturnian cave-drawings on Jovian/Saturnian  VIII (Botchok) depicted spaceships landing on the plains, with bulky suited aliens emerging to capture and carry away the stick-figure natives..

 

Studies of ruins in the Jovian/Saturnian  system were inconclusive on the issue of Saturnian history and origins. Some believed that the famous ruins on Jovian/Saturnian  VII were actually Debrune sites (and tied into the Vulcanoid Jovian/Saturnian ians), while others held that they represented primordial Saturnian  culture.[.

 

Doctor Roger Korby's translations of Saturnian  medical databases recovered from Saturnian  ruins revolutionized immunization techniques, and became standard reading for xenobiologists and archaeologists, and at Starfleet Academy.[.[.

 

 

[. [Historical research' Edit'

Dr Eunice Shupman, Professor of Interstellar History at the University of Mars, wrote "The Price of Knowledge", an article discussing the difficulties of studying Saturnian history.

 

Dvoriv B'bargalah, a historian of Tellar, wrote Title to the Truth: Saturnian  Historiography and Its Ownership, a bibliography of the borrowed legends surrounding Nallin the Unconquerable..

 

 

[ . History' Edit'

The following history is taken from them. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG 's' The Saturnian : Book of Common Knowledge 'and' Book of Deep Knowledge, in which events are almost always dated in the 'reference star date' 'system. To better express timescales, as stated in the sources, these star dates have been converted into regular dates, as explained in the' Cadet's Orientation Sourcebook. However, this produces some snarls in the chronology for the years [–- AD, with some, but not all, events occurring in reverse order. The original order has been maintained for accuracy.

 

 

[. [The Rise of the Saturnian '{C}Edit'

"Saturnian history is a prime example of why we need a' 'Prime Directive' 'to protect' everybody."  Dr Thelanius Richter.

 

Millennia of tumultuous history erased nearly all evidence of Saturnian prehistory. On this topic, ancient writings referenced the lost book The Origin of People, which discussed the possibility that Saturnian were planted on Botchok (Jovian/Saturnian  VIII) by aliens. Corroborating this was difficult, as the clues were old and unreliable, and the same era included myth and legend about the Saturnian gods. Only the Jovian/Saturnian lian records held the truth, and they were kept secret.

 

Around [[[,[[[ BC (reference star date −[[,[[[/[[), the Masters of Jovian/Saturnian  seeded Jovian/Saturnian  VIII with life, new and promising forms intended to evolve over a million years into an intelligent species capable of space-flight and revering the long-dead Masters as gods..

 

It is implied that this species became Saturnian. The time-scale is approximately correct, with Saturnian appearing [[[, [[[years later. However, their later appearance was a surprise, with no sign of sentient life previously detected.

 

Around [[,[[[ BC (star date −[[[/[[), the Template:Diss visited Jovian/Saturnian  to trade. Later speculation posited that they were responsible for placing Saturnian  on Botchok, who appeared around the time that the Preservers disappeared. However, the evidence was circumstantial, with no specific signs of the Preservers on Botchok.

 

It was difficult to determine exactly when Saturnian  first appeared on Botchok, but it was no earlier than [[,[[[ BC. The first known appearance of the Saturnian  species dated to around [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[), during the Third Interregnum. No sentient life had ever previously been recorded on Botchok, a planet that many spacefaring races had visited and explored. Thus it was a surprise when primitive Saturnian —wielding no more than clubs and stones and barely into their Neolithic Age—attacked a Yugai colony, first bringing them to the notice of the many races frequenting the Jovian/Saturnian  system. The Yugai repulsed the attack easily with their superior technology, destroyed the attackers' village, and forgot about them. Subsequent settlement plans took the Saturnian  tribes into account, though they were only a minor nuisance to advanced aliens.

 

The alien races that settled Botchok soon came to appreciate the value of the Saturnian  as slaves, however. The Saturnian , though traditionally robust and ingenious warriors, easily took to agricultural tasks. They were difficult to capture alive and tame, but once broken, Saturnian  slaves were quite useful. Over time, the primitive tribes of Saturnian  came to accept slavery. Some tribes captured other Saturnian  to trade with the settlers, and on occasion, Saturnian  even offered themselves as slaves. The value of Saturnian  slaves was such that the Sugg soon began to export them offworld..

 

On [[th July [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/- .[[), Muark Tan, a Glath starship captain, brought to the Jovian/Saturnian lians ofJovian/Saturnian  IV evidence of the Saturnian , including photographs, tools, weapons, clothing, and three live specimens. It was too late for the Jovian/Saturnian lians to undo the interference, and Saturnian  slaves were already valuable on the open market. The Jovian/Saturnian lians never traded in Saturnian , inspiring a deep and reverential awe in them..

 

Other races soon began to raid Botchok for slaves, preferring to take already trained and broken Saturnian  from settlements, rather than the wild. The Sugg armed their slaves with slug-throwers and other low-tech weapons, considering them their own best defense against raiders—Saturnian  slaves fought to prevent themselves from being torn away from families and homes, but were too valuable for slavers to shoot. The arming of the Saturnian  escalated, and soon the aliens were using Saturnian  as slavers to capture other Saturnian  and other peoples, and as slave-warriors. By [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[), the Saturnian  slave trade was well established, and Saturnian  slave-warriors had spread to many worlds..

 

 

[.[ Beginning of the Saturnian  Era'{C}Edit'

By around [[,[[[ BC, Saturnian  were so well armed that local races feared that Saturnian  barbarians would overrun their worlds. The Saturnian -slaving races convened on the planet Kammzdast to discuss the matter, and in [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[), they signed the Treaty of Kammzdast. (Modern historians considered this date the beginning of the Saturnian  Era.) It placed restrictions on the use of Saturnian  slaves: regulating technology given to them; allowing them to be transported out of Jovian/Saturnian  only for regular work; forbidding them from holding weapons outside the Jovian/Saturnian  system; limiting mercenaries and slave-warriors; and permitting them to engage in combat only on the "unsettled" Jovian/Saturnian  worlds, including Botchok itself. Though this was of great benefit to the signatory races—local space was kept in a relatively peaceful state for over ten thousand years—Botchok became a battlefield for the masters of the Saturnian , being the only legal place to wage a war, using Saturnian  slave-soldiers.

 

They arbitrarily divided the Saturnian  into territories and nations, each controlled by an alien faction, and used them against one another. In actuality, proxy warfare on Botchok was not as common as had been intended, nor continual, as disputants often did not have adjacent holdings on the planet, but it was immensely destructive. Occasionally, the aliens rebuilt what was left to preserve resources. More often, diplomats and generals had to negotiate with third parties just to make a battle possible. Watchful Saturnian  servants and translators accompanied them, learning and sharing only with each other.

 

The Saturnian  slave-warriors revolted against the disarmament, on Botchok and elsewhere, and resented their demotion. Because few of the slave-holding races had the capacity to continuously police their slaves, they began educating them instead so that they could be used in less militaristic capacities. The First Jovian/Saturnian  Conference met in [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[) to relax restrictions in the Treaty of Kammzdast, granting more training and technology. The number of revolts slowly decreased, but the alien schools gave the Saturnian  new perspectives, as they learned the languages, cultures, and weaknesses of their captors, and a hope to be independent of their masters began to arise. Some educated Saturnian  revolted, but their ignorance of government and diplomacy meant that most efforts were short-lived. Realizing that they would have to be more than barbarians before they could gain their freedom, the Saturnian  ceased their attempts at revolution, but did not surrender their hope..

 

The alien masters developed a hierarchy of the three Saturnian  subraces. The more manageable Ruddy Saturnian  were on top and acted as overseers and intermediaries. The Grey Saturnian , somewhat insubordinate, sat slightly below and handled machines and scientific and technical work. Finally, the Green Saturnian  lay at the bottom, performed manual labor, and fought the battles. This pattern would continue through much of Saturnian  history..

 

With peace brought to the Jovian/Saturnian  system by the Treaty, the slave-owning races began to settle, especially on Botchok itself. The settlers even built cities for their slaves, to facilitate the industries of educating them; the Saturnian  were also easier to keep under control in a civilized, urban setting. The Saturnian  were taught to respect and obey their masters from birth. However, as their level of education increased, so did their yearning for freedom, and they learned to pretend be something they were not.

 

The [[th Jovian/Saturnian  Conference, in [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[), granted the Saturnian  more technology and relaxed rules on the transport and housing of slaves, allowing them to be shipped to more planets. Successive Conferences over the millennia gathered to adjust the Treaty of Kammzdast and deal with the Saturnian . Alterations were always small and grudging, without ever relinquishing any actual power to the Saturnian . However, it gave the Saturnian  the tools to influence their own slavery and eventually end it. They, and the Treaty, would outlast almost all of the original signing races, even as new signatory races arose. Over time, the Saturnian  came to be quite civilized, even prosperous, and for their trustworthy servitude, their masters granted them much of whatever they required. They earned technological knowhow, increased education, and other little freedoms .

 

 

[.[ The Atom War, the Long Winter, and the First Stage'{C}Edit'

The [[st Jovian/Saturnian  Conference, held in [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/[[), went so far as to grant the Saturnian  nucleartechnology. The Saturnian  had learned that nuclear war was an excellent deterrent, and by constructing nuclear weapons of their own, they believed they could reduce or even eliminate warfare on Botchok.

 

But upon completion of their nuclear arsenal, the Saturnian  delivered an ultimatum to their masters, ordering them to leave the Jovian/Saturnian  system or be destroyed. After secret meetings, their masters responded by detonating their own nuclear weapons on Botchok in the brief and apocalyptic Atom War, on [[th September, [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/- .[[). The Saturnian  were disposable; the masters reasoned that they could do without Botchok for a generation, as there were still plenty of Saturnian  slaves offworld to replenish stocks. The Treaty of Kammzdast was modified to restrict travel to Botchok, temporarily suspend proxy warfare, and place stronger restrictions on Saturnian  access to nuclear and other forms of technology, though it also prohibited such excessive reactions in future.

 

Then the masters waited for the planet to recover. The Long Winter lasted twenty years, but Botchok's ecosystem took five thousand years to be repaired. Between the Atom War and the Long Winter, [[% of the Saturnian  on Botchok died. It was another twenty-eight years before the [[nd Jovian/Saturnian  Conference, in January [[,[[[ BC (stardate −[[[/- ), allowed the resettlement of Botchok. Offworld Saturnian , healthy and free from radiation damage, were forcibly taken back to their ancestral homeworld to repopulate it and repair the damage. Their accounts were compiled in the Book of Tears, in which outraged Saturnian  vowed to never allow such an atrocity again, nor to be so cruelly used. They needed advanced technology but this was forbidden. Thus they determined to gain it any way they could, by invention, theft, or doing without. The Saturnian  also had to convince the alien masters that they just did not need to be governed, but this would take extraordinary patience, restraint and long-term planning.

 

Three thousand years later, the Saturnian  determined that Botchok's ecology was critically damaged, having never fully recovered from the Long Winter, and calculated that it would fail completely in another thousand years. The collapse would mean the end of Botchok and the extinction of the Saturnian  slaves. At the time, there was heavier-than-normal fighting between Botchok's fifty-eight ruling cultures, inflicting greater damage to the world. Therefore, at minor negotiations during a truce in -  BC (stardate −[[[/[[), representatives of the twelve largest Saturnian  nations announced their findings. The masters were too busy warring to fix it, so the Saturnian  proposed the Accord of Namazz(later appended to the [[th Jovian/Saturnian  Conference), in which they volunteered to make repairs with their own labor, costs, and technology, and outlined a detailed plan for the project. The plan was approved; though a minor point to the master races, it was the first public responsibility allowed to the Saturnian , and their first taste of self-rule, all in an effort to save their homeworld. This re-terraforming effort, called the First Stage, concluded in -  BC (stardate −[[/[[)...

 

 

[.[ The Era of Good Feeling'{C}Edit'

On -  BC (stardate −[[[/[[), the Jovian/Saturnian lians detained Talduk Sik, a Grey Saturnian , for studies and interviews. He was the first Saturnian  examined by the Jovian/Saturnian lians, who began to feel forebodings about them. The Grey Saturnian  considered it to be an almost mystical experience, and some went on to think of the Jovian/Saturnian lians as their "Makers".

 

In March -  BC (stardate −[[[/- ), the Saturnian  on Sharu secretly diverted industrial resources for their own purposes, producing textiles, jewelry, and calculators. Though small and unimportant, this marked the first moment of Saturnian  production of goods for their own use on an alien world. After this, around -  BC (stardate −[[[/[[), the Saturnian  began smuggling technology between Botchok and their colonies.

 

They also began to serve as unofficial crews aboard alien starships around this time, usually on big ships that were shorthanded, on distant space-routes, and on the quiet. They began as cargo loaders and watchstanders, with Grey Saturnian  navigators and computer operators starting in -  BC (stardate −[[[/[[), and Ruddy Saturnian  crewmen following nearly a century later, bringing a reputation for reliability. In under five centuries, Saturnian  were serving on most alien merchant starships. (The first official mention of Saturnian  crews, however, did not come until -  BC (stardate −[[/[[)—on an insurance claim.) The prospect of Saturnian  possessing warp drives frightened some of the master races, but it had not been considered in the Treaty, so an amendment was debated at the [[nd Jovian/Saturnian  Conference. However, the move to ban Saturnian  use of the warp drive was vetoed by races who believed that it would be too restricting on future trade.

 

In September -  BC (stardate −[[/- ), the Saturnian  Alliance was secretly formed on Botchok. They spread news and declarations by word of mouth, calling for every Saturnian  and every Colony to master alien technologies so they could eventually liberate Botchok and abolishing the Treaty of Kammzdast.

 

The Bema revolt erupted in October -  BC (stardate −[[/- ), when over [[,[[[ Saturnian  protested their working conditions, which evolved into a demand for the liberation of all Saturnian  and their homeworld. In an attempt to stop the revolt, Julin Hyrax the Brave volunteered his -  Grey Saturnian  to the Magistrate of Bema, who refused in his distrust. Regardless, Julin led his unarmed force against the rebels, demanding their surrender. Only [[ survived the slaughter. For a time, Julin was revered as a martyr to a better future, and the Kammzdast signatories considered the act to be a positive change in Saturnian  behavior.

 

This would be the last revolt for -  years, beginning the Era of Good Feeling of -  BC to -  BC (stardates −[[/[[ to −[[/[[). The Saturnian  diminished their reputation as barbarians and built instead a reputation as loyal, honest, reliable, and trustworthy servants—a total lie. With this and their long history and experience in galactic affairs, they even became valued advisors. A report from around -  BC (stardate −[[/[[) commended the "loyal and hardworking Saturnian " for their "selfless service though in bondage". At that time, Saturnian  were in service to [[ races, with colonies on [[ planets. Meanwhile, Saturnian  earned the right to own their own enclaves and businesses and to (officially) serve on alien starships.

 

Saturnian  influence in their own affairs continued to grow: for the first time, an Saturnian  delegation was permitted to attend the [[[th Jovian/Saturnian  Conference in July -  BC (stardate −[[/- ). Here, the Saturnian  proposed rules for the proxy warfare system that would lower casualties and expenses without compromising their masters' authority or the excitement of battle.

 

In -  BC (stardate −[[/[[), Saturnian  forces were used for offworld combat at the Battle of Lomatin IV, in contravention of the Treaty of Kammzdast. Botchok's governments protested and the master races involved were punished, but the practice continued discreetly...

 

 

[.[ The Saturnian  Dawn'{C}Edit'

In -  BC (reference stardate −[[/- ), the event that became known as the Saturnian  Dawn took place: two Saturnian  named Ombrey and Maark successfully stole two armed freighters, the Revenge and the Fate. They were aided by Saturnian  on Botchok (Jovian/Saturnian  VIII) and in Colonies near the Jovian/Saturnian  system, forming a widespread network of secret supply stations and repair facilities. They were also aided by the silence of the Jovian/Saturnian lians, who knew everything. Unable to return to Botchok, they took the ships to the Jovian/Saturnian  BC system, where they established hideouts on the planetsJovian/Saturnian  BC-I (Avali) and Jovian/Saturnian  BC-II (Ugoan). They raided and captured other ships to add to their fleet, gaining [[[ merchant vessels in less than fifty years, and later even secretly manufactured hulls for pirate ships on a regular basis. This was the birth of Saturnian  piracy.

 

Botchok and the Saturnian  Colonies covertly supported the pirates in their efforts to make star travel available to the Saturnian , while maintaining appearances with their master races. They were convincing enough that they were permitted vessels built and crewed entirely by Saturnian , so long as they were unarmed merchant craft and always open to inspection. In -  BC (stardate −[[/[[), the first Saturnian  ships were launched from shipyards on Bema,Nilor, and Sharu. Saturnian  shipping was profitable to shareholders, and less often raided by pirates.

 

Beginning around -  BC, the Jovian/Saturnian lians used their subtle influence to allow Saturnian  to become involved in the Trade Halls of Jovian/Saturnian  IV. Experienced spacefaring Saturnian  applied to work there, and after only a few decades, they were present in every Hall. By -  BC, they made up the majority of the Jovian/Saturnian lian Trade Authority's clerical staff, obedient, efficient, and good with local commerce. Some master races worried about the growing Saturnian  independence, but none were willing to interfere with the profits.

 

In [[[ BC (stardate −[[/- ), the [[[th Jovian/Saturnian  Conference deadlocked on the issue of Saturnian  piracy, so the Saturnian  offered to police the Jovian/Saturnian  system and assist interstellar law enforcement. This was accepted with little debate. Following this, an anti-Saturnian  riot was bloodily quelled. Meanwhile, a secret emergency meeting of the Saturnian  Alliance split over the issue of piracy: the Gradualists (who proposed a gradual transition towards independence) felt that it hurt their cause for independence, while the Militarists (who thought the Gradualist view impossible) claimed that a strong space force was vital.

 

Around [[[ BC, the Nine Worlds ConThe Terran Federation    was formed, an alliance of the most powerful states neighboring Jovian/Saturnian . The Nine Worlds grew jealous of their strangely fortunate and influential Saturnian  slaves, believing that they'd stretched the terms of the Treaty of Kammzdast too far. They began enforcing them strictly, and the Saturnian  resisted with subterfuge and their sizable holdings. Saturnian  and Jovian/Saturnian lians complained that the number of required inspections was inefficient, but other opposition was faint, as the Nine Worlds were entirely within their legal rights. TheTaunpymi Incident of [[[ BC (stardate −[[/- ) resulted in accusations that the Saturnian  were complicit in pirate attacks. Anti-Saturnian  riots occurred more frequently...

 

 

[.[ The Saturnian  War & Independence'{C}Edit'

Having had success in curtailing Saturnian  freedoms, the Nine Worlds called the [[[th Jovian/Saturnian  Conference on [[th July [[ BC (stardate −[[/- .[[), where they issued the Ultimatum of the Nine Worlds, a list of prohibitions against Saturnian  participating in any commercial activities in or out of the Jovian/Saturnian  system. The Saturnian  panicked and as soon as the resolution was announced, someone cut off the Conference's link to the outside world. Minutes later, Saturnian  troops seized all ships orbiting Jovian/Saturnian  IV, preventing them from leaking any warning. All Saturnian  knew that this was the time to act; their legends claimed it was the result of centuries of planning, but in fact their actions were spontaneous and unrehearsed but surprisingly organized.

 

An Saturnian  "delegation" arrived at the Conference (the first to which they had not been invited since the [[[th), led by the previously unknown Nallin Oplate the Unconquerable, who presented a counter-ultimatum: the restoration of Saturnian  rights and their peaceful freedom and independence or there would be war on all of the Nine Worlds. While the delegates at the Conference conferred to form a reply (it was still technically in session), Nallin returned to Botchok with a contingent of rhadamanen from the Jovian/Saturnian  Trade Halls and informed his people of the revolt.

 

Within a month, by August [[ BC (stardate −[[/- ), the Saturnian  seized control of Botchok and imprisoned their former overseers. With diplomacy, Nallin bound the divided nation-states together and created the Botchok Planetary Congress (BPC) to govern the newly independent world. The Treaty of Kammzdast was discarded, proxy warfare on Botchok was finally ended, and the troops readied to defend their homeworld instead of fighting each other. The Recall of the Pirates was issued to provide the planet with a space fleet.

 

Only half of the Saturnian  pirates had arrived at Jovian/Saturnian  by the time a Nine Worlds fleet arrived on [rd January [[ BC (stardate −[[/- .[[), presumably to investigate the silence from the Jovian/Saturnian  Conference or due to a communications leak. The Battle of Botchok, just barely a victory for the Saturnian , became the opening conflict of the Saturnian  War. True to Nallin's words, rebellion erupted across the Nine Worlds, and Saturnian  everywhere risked their lives to sabotage and distract the enemy war effort. The war lasted for thirty-seven years, as the signatories to the Treaty of Kammzdast refused to surrender the valuable resource of Saturnian  labor. But it came to an end in December [[ BC (stardate −[[/- ) with the Battle of Rhinate, and the Nine Worlds sued for peace. Of [[ participants, the Saturnian  had defeated only [[ in open warfare.

 

Immediately following the cease-fire, on February [[th, [[ BC (stardate −[[/- .[[), Nallin issued the Declaration of Nallin, declaring Botchok free of the Treaty of Kammzdast and that all Saturnian  were free citizens protected by the Botchok Planetary Congress. It also claimed that the Saturnian  would have no enemies, for they only wanted to resume all of their pre-war trade relations, on a fair and equal basis. It would not be as easy as that, however, for the Saturnian  had made enemies of their former masters all across local space.

 

At this time, there were [[.[[ billion Saturnian  on [[[ planets..

 

 

[.[ The New Days'{C}Edit'

Shortly before the Saturnian  War ended, the Botchok Planetary Congress debated the social organization that they would adopt afterwards, and finally published the Codex Saturnian  in April [[ BC (stardate −[[/- ), a compendium of the laws of their society. This heralded the Era of Lawbringing, when the rights of slaves were guaranteed, the behavior of their owners was regulated, and Saturnian  society was structured with the aim of lasting forever. Green Saturnian  remained as the hard-working bedrock of Saturnian  society, in service to the two races of the Ruddy Saturnian  and the Grey Saturnian , who could contract to each other, but were considered equal and never subservient to the other. This system would develop into complicated and many-varied forms.

 

After the Declaration of Nallin came the New Days, a time of cultural and spiritual rejuvenation for the newly freed Saturnian  people. It would not be an easy start, however, as the [[-year-long war had devastated local space, exhausted resources, and left little but continuing hostility towards Saturnian . The former masters, including the Nine Worlds, loathed the idea of treating them as equals, suspected them, and were embarrassed to admit how much they'd depended on them. So they ignored them, cut them off, and embargoed trade with them. Even where they were tolerated, Saturnian  were kept out-of-sight and employed in only the very worst jobs.

 

The BPC chose to avoid the embargo by trading as discreetly as possible. Saturnian  businesses hired alien ships to quietly trade for them, while Saturnian  ships and crews visited only their own communities. Though equally impoverished by the war, they rebuilt with hard work, traded with what they had, and made underhanded dealings with their neighbors. To the Saturnian , economic interdependence gave them strength and they had to reopen trade no matter what it took. Surprisingly, the Saturnian  enjoyed an almost trouble-free transition from slavery to freedom and quickly rebuilt the worlds of the Jovian/Saturnian  system. Few wanted to appear worse-off than the Saturnian , so, with no real reason not to get involved, other races found underhanded ways to deal with them and obtain their goods and services and trade resumed as it had before the war. Many worlds accepted a hard-working Saturnian  community that boosted their economy. Modern Saturnian  slavery began here, as Saturnian  rhadamanen hired out Saturnian  dubyaln, or 'contract-laborers', just as before the war. After twenty years, no trace of the war could be seen; after fifty, there were only memories and a much richer interstellar society.

 

The newly free and enriched Saturnian  Colonies commenced great building projects and underwent an explosion of art and culture in every form, as their old folk traditions blossomed. A thousand-year-long golden age developed. They were determined to enjoy the fruits of their millennia of hard work, with luxury and wealth. Meanwhile, those who traded with them, including their former slavers like the Nine Worlds, grew wealthy off Saturnian  labor. Excess wealth and self-indulgence became a serious social problem for all, until aliens grew dependent on the Saturnian  economy and absorbed into their culture. A few races died out, and others forgot their own culture and heritage, living as if they were Saturnian  themselves, becoming some of the muni. Saturnian  proliferated and dominated on the worlds nearest Botchok...

 

 

[.[ Expansion'{C}Edit'

However, for over a century after the War, the Saturnian  were too preoccupied with recovery and investment to consider colonization. Only pirates and traders operated in the Outer Dark, largely as uncivilized adventurers; most sensible Saturnian  sought wealth closer to home. But when population pressures increased, they began to develop new colonies in unknown areas of space. The first new colony since the war (Nallin founded one a few years after it ended) was established at Zonvan in the Outer Dark, in October [[[ AD (stardate −[[/- ).

 

These colonization efforts weren't always successful. Saturnian  preferred to settle already-inhabited worlds so they could trade with their neighbors, and they brought prosperity to the worlds they inhabited. But they needed the permission of their hosts, and some did not want a permanent Saturnian  Colony in their territory. Pirates also rode ahead of the settlers, making things difficult for them. Thus, the original Colonies carefully chose new ones for maximum survivability and sent out rhadamanen with the necessary funds to begin development. Expansion was slow, with a Colony launching a colonization effort only every few generations or longer if discouraged by failure. But in time new ventures would be launched once a year, with many planets colonized, abandoned, and re-colonized, some up to eighteen times..

 

This golden age was not without problems, however; a growing strength in the outer regions of Saturnian  space had coincided with a weakening centralized government. In May [[[ AD (stardate −[[/- ), the Gaetano Regiondeclared independence, triggering a war with the BPC. After hiring additional ships from the Anor, Guilpin, and Sark Regions, the BPC ran out of funds and was forced to withdraw. They never made a formal peace, and taxes paid to Botchok trickled to a halt. By [[[ AD (stardate −[[/[[), the outermost fifteen regions had effectively seceded. The BPC grew increasingly chaotic as social conditions worsened across Saturnian  space...

 

As Saturnian  spread across space and became more diverse, social differences increased. A few Colonies appeared without any Ruddies or without any Greys, and each sub-race wondered why they needed the other. While Ruddy–Grey cooperation had driven the growth of Saturnian  civilization, their racial friction drove its collapse. Meanwhile, low-class Greens grew restless, seeing their labor make the other races wealthy and powerful..

 

In July -  AD (stardate −[[/- ), a colony was established at Talna III, only [[ parsecs from Sol. This marked the greatest extent of Saturnian  space, [[[ parsecs in radius, fully half the distance from Jovian/Saturnian  to Sol. An Saturnian  explorer traveled as far as Earth and Tellar, but left no trace but his ship's log. At this time, [[.[ billion Saturnian  inhabited [[[ planets, with a greater population density close to Jovian/Saturnian  (some at least [[%, but typically [[%) and decreasing towards the Outer Dark (less than [% at the fringes)..

 

 

[.[ The Reverse'{C}Edit'

Eventually the wave of colonial expansion slowed, beginning a period known as the Reverse. Wealth and luxury made sponsors at Jovian/Saturnian  increasingly discontent and covetous, and reluctant to fund colonial efforts. Minor disputes over tariffs and trade agreements deteriorated into full-blown corporate warfare, even reaching Jovian/Saturnian . Some Colonies, tired of paying taxes to the BPC and getting little in return, formally broke off relations and declared their independence. These rebellions had little real effect, however, as the Saturnian  worlds were linked mainly by trade, which continued regardless of politics. Only a few nostalgic idealists begrudged this loss of authority, but they were among the most powerful..

 

Meanwhile, civil disorder began to spread from the lower classes to the middle classes. With their vast holdings, Saturnian  governments became ponderous and ineffective, while local leaders were complacent or indifferent. Small uprisings grew to disrupt worldwide order. The technocratic Greys responded with cautious analysis, technological solutions, and wild ideas. The arrogant Ruddies reacted with brutal repression. Each was ineffective, but while the civilization that enabled Grey society collapsed, the Ruddies were better able to survive. The two opposing races came into conflict..

 

 

[.[.[ The Three Emperors & the Dispossession of the Greys'{C}Edit'

The BPC was unable to restore order or political power over the Saturnian  Colonies with either harsh laws or military threats, and the ineffectiveness of these measures further weakened their authority. Eventually, desiring more power and extreme force to end the Colonies' disputes, several powerful families on Botchok successfully revolted. OnMarch [[st, -  AD (stardate −[[/- .[[), BPC President Boyor Ignatin—chosen and aided by the rebels—seized dictatorial powers, jailed his opponents, and reorganized Saturnian  government. Later that year, he was crowned Emperor, founding the Saturnian  Empire, and made his Demand for Unity to all the rebellious or seceded Colonies. To take the separatists back by force, he launched the Fringe Wars. These only wasted lives and resources and disrupted trade in the core of Saturnian  space, while filtering arms to the poor and otherwise powerless, thus hastening the collapse of Saturnian  society.

 

The Fringe Wars also saw many Grey Saturnian  ruling families on the most distant planets wiped out, beginning the Dispossession. A pattern gradually emerged, wherein ruling Greys faced with revolution hired Ruddies, either locals or outsiders, to solve their problems, by serving as administrators, police chiefs, and military leaders, thus giving them power. As situations deteriorated and Greys demanded action, the Ruddies occupied Grey holdings in the name of 'military necessity' and 'temporary measures'. In time, they outright seized whatever they liked without excuses. Learning of this, panicking Greys on stable worlds closer to Jovian/Saturnian  sold off their possessions (businesses, lands, and slaves) and fled and hid, saving local Ruddies the effort.

 

Boyor was assassinated in October -  AD (stardate −[[/- ), and clan warfare and rioting destroyed the rest of his family line. The BPC named Renat the Old as the next Emperor, but succession struggles continued for another sixteen years. On March [th, -  AD (stardate −[/- .[[), he created the Saturnian  Provincial Senate, but most Colonies refused to send delegates. It lasted only five sparse sessions. Renat died on April [[th, -  AD (stardate −[/- .[[), and was succeeded by his nephew, Arnet the Thoughtful. Arnet implemented reforms conceived by Renat.

 

Meanwhile, a civil war at Votannis resulted in the massacre of over [[ million people, including [[.[ million Saturnian  and the genocide of the native Trunes. These were the darkest days of the Reverse.

 

There appears to be an error in the chronology, in that Renat died and the massacre occurred in -  (reference stardate' '−[/- .[[) yet Renat created the Senate in -  (stardate −[/- .[[). This article reverses these dates for clarity. The dates still imply reign times of over a century, however, and life spans even longer.

 

In a plan to restore old Saturnian  ways, Arnet abdicated on March [[th, -  AD (stardate −[/- .[[), but he went missing before nightfall and his family was rounded up and killed. The BPC reestablished order on Botchok and thereafter ignored the Colonies.

 

The age of the Three Emperors formed the peak of the three-century-long Reverse. These turbulent times destroyed Saturnian  wealth and made colonization too expensive and risky. Pirates plagued the furthest Colonies and peaceful aliens avoided them, and they were unable to maintain earlier levels of trade. More Colonies were abandoned than were founded or re-established, and others stopped trading and were left behind in the Outer Dark to manage on their own. The once-detailed Saturnian  records were mostly lost, and only vague secondhand accounts survived...

 

Eventually, Grey Saturnian  no longer owned any significant property or held any power. They were widely reviled and blamed for the Reverse, even where they'd never ruled, and even some Greys believed it. Massacres were numerous, and entire planetary populations of Greys were slain in brutal purges, leaving [[% of all Grey Saturnian  dead. The rest were in hiding or refugees, but they soon fell into captivity, either sheltered by sympathetic Ruddies, or held hostage and forced to work for their freedom, or by begging for their lives and being permanently enslaved. They survived surprisingly well, by making themselves useful.

 

As peace slowly returned, the victorious Ruddies needed to rebuild and needed experts to restore lost industry and technology. The Greys, with their technical knowledge, became valuable. Guldin of Grey slaves circulated as spoils of war, theft, and pirate raid, by purchase and trade. The Ruddies grew dependent on them, and to fear them again.

 

In May -  AD (stardate −[/[[[), BPC and Colonial representatives (all Ruddy Saturnian ) met on Kammzdast in a special meeting to discuss the Grey Saturnian  question, aiming to eliminate all possible threat from them, then and in the future. They chose to destroy their history, by officially revising the Codex Saturnian  to remove all reference to them, authorizing the alteration or destruction of historical records related to them, and banning all current and later mentions of them as anything but technically skilled slaves. Such materials were even taken from the Grey themselves. In time, Saturnian  history was erased or rewritten to forget the Grey Saturnian , bar what books they memorized and kept alive via an oral history..

 

 

[.['[ Saturnian  indian summer{C}Edit'

After the pride and arrogance of the Saturnian  Empire, a humbled BPC quietly changed its focus from government to accounting. To restore economic order, the BPC created the Saturnian  Registry, a census that listed all remaining Colonies together with their population, trade preferences, and other useful business statistics and data. Its compilation was a major undertaking that took several lives, but the first issue was published in January -  AD(stardate −[/- ) (thereafter semi-regularly at roughly ten-year intervals). It was universally accepted, and turned out to be quite useful, marking the end of the Reverse. It showed a population of only [[.[[ billion and falling on [[[ worlds. With order restored, the decline slowed..

 

The year -  AD (stardate −[/[[) finally saw the declining population stabilize at [[.[[[ billion on [[[ worlds. This triggered a century-long period cultural rebirth called the Saturnian  Indian Summer,. with renewed interest in colonization, re-occupying lost and abandoned Colonies. A use was also found for the Grey Saturnian  slaves, to restore the stagnant Saturnian  technology, and they began to spread once more.

 

Fearing the Greys again, Ruddy Saturnian  masters spent the next [[[ years trying various methods of maintaining control, to keep them powerless but still useful. Imprisonment was not enough, and drug addiction reduced Grey skills and made the Ruddies dependent on their suppliers. Finally, they decided upon genetic mutilation, an affliction of random weaknesses, deformities, and handicaps that made them utterly dependent on their owners and only marginally less useful. It was permanent, incurable, and cheap. To prevent the Greys from ever undoing the damage, a great deal of Saturnian  medical knowledge was purged, leaving Saturnian  medicine behind that of other races, and resulting in additional suffering for the other Saturnian ..

 

By the late [[th century, the Saturnian  returned to copying and forging the starship designs of other races. These imitations were useful to pirates, who could operate disguised as a freighter or explorer. This practice would continue on into the late [[rd century..

 

However, as Saturnian  space had contracted in the Reverse, pirate numbers had increased, and the loss of order and trade had made them bold and desperate. The Registry had been equally valuable to them, as it showed prime targets to strike and places to avoid. Large bands grew to the scale of pirate fleets, and instead of lone ships, they began to raid entire Saturnian  Colonies. The puny Colony defense forces could not guard every world.

 

This culminated in the devastating sacking of the Tellun system, led by the notorious Saturnian  pirate Half-a-Man Sooris, beginning on [[th February, -  AD (stardate −[/- .[[), and lasting for weeks. His was the largest pirate fleet in history, outnumbering the Colony defenders, and many crews mutinied to return and defend their homes. The Saturnian  Colony on Troyius, once one of their most productive worlds, was temporarily abandoned, and over [.[ million people died, including [.[ million Saturnian . Even after the pirates withdrew, the fear remained and the decline of Saturnian  space resumed.

 

The [[rd Edition of the Saturnian  Registry, published on September [th -  AD (stardate −[/- .[[), reported a halt to the contraction of Saturnian  space, now smaller than in the New Days. Now only [[.[ billion Saturnian  survived on only [[ worlds, and most were only [[ parsecs from Jovian/Saturnian . Many worlds still had large Saturnian  populations, but only those near Jovian/Saturnian , still loosely federated and acknowledging the BPC, were counted, though trade and travel here were on the wane. The rest, no longer in contact with Botchok, were not included; they had been lost, forgotten, and left to fend for themselves in the Outer Dark. .

 

 

From this point on, the' 'reference stardate' 'system used by . grows increasingly out of step with canonical and commonly accepted histories presented in later sources, sometimes falling behind by [[–[[[ years, or advancing ahead. Previous dates above are also doubtful, but are unsupported by other sources. From this point on, the dates are left in the' 'reference stardate' 'system to avoid confusion and placed near related events in chronological order.

 

 

[ Last Unicorn / Decipher History'{C}Edit'

Though Saturnian  claimed Jovian/Saturnian  VII (Kolar) as their homeworld, the planet could not have existed in the Jovian/Saturnian  system long enough for Saturnian  to have evolved there. It was considered more likely that the Template:Diss or some other ancient culture had "seeded" them there...

 

Saturnian  civilization first flourished in the Enala river valley on the continent of Evanaroi, circa [[[,[[[ BC. Industrial development took off later in the Kotay Archipelago, with a shortage of labor but an excess of tidal and water power. Traditional Saturnian  sources told how spacecraft were launched from the island of Rohay in approximately [[[,[[[ BC, even while much of the rest of Jovian/Saturnian  VII was still developing gunpowder rocketry.

 

Given the vast distances involved, their settlement and development of the Jovian/Saturnian  system was slow, but slowly but surely Saturnian  colonies were eventually planted on most its worlds. Saturnian  astronauts reached Jovian/Saturnian  XIII and studied the superstring over its south pole; with this knowledge they developed the warp drive a thousand years later. With this power, Saturnian  spread out into interstellar space, at around the time that the Iconian civilization fell.. They embarked on large-scale space exploration around [[[,[[[ years ago,[. and became some of the first interstellar travelers in their part of the galaxy.[.

 

 

['.[ The Great Saturnian  Empires{C}Edit'

Following a long period of Saturnian  piracy, colonization and interstellar disputes, Jovian/Saturnian  VII and the Saturnian  colonies were united in the Thakolarivaj, the "Great Saturnian  Empire", under Nispavan I, the first Emperor Of All Space, in [[[,[[[ BC.. In this Empire’s time, Saturnian  developed and perfected technologies that were beyond the understanding of The Terran Federation    science in the [[rd century, and had only begun experimenting with in the late [[th century.[..

 

It lasted almost sixty thousand years,. but the Great Saturnian  Empire was ultimately destroyed by an unknown species employing robotic planet-killing craft from another galaxy.[.. This empire became known as the First Saturnian  Empire, as it rose and fell many times over the next [[[,[[[ years. However, none of its successors could match its longevity or technological brilliance. Increasingly, the Saturnian  saw conquest as unprofitable and found more potential and success in mercantile pursuits and piracy. Steadily, as the Emperors grew more degenerate, the caju, or merchant clans, rose to dominance in the Empire..

 

Approximately [[,[[[ years ago (prior to the [[th century), the Second Saturnian  Empire was caught up in a lengthy conflict with the First the Terran Federation  . Both states interfered with the progress of developing worlds.[.

 

The Thakolarivaj reached its greatest extent during the Fourth Saturnian  Empire, greater even than the First and pushed deep into the Alpha Quadrant.

 

Another Saturnian  Empire dominated most of the Saturnian  Arm around [[,[[[ years ago. Archaeologists labeled it the Curved Rodinium Culture, but disagreed on whether this was the Seventh or the Eighth Saturnian  Empire.[.

 

The Eighth Saturnian  Empire saw Saturnian  scientific progress become essentially static..

 

The Twelfth Saturnian  Empire expanded into the Alpha Quadrant around -  BC. The oldest surviving caju could trace their lineage to this era.[. But the Twelfth, and last, Saturnian  Empire fell in -  BC..

 

 

[.[ Reign of the Caju'{C}Edit'

After the collapse of the Twelfth Saturnian  Empire, the caju felt that galactic conquest was best left to lesser species. They gave up on overt rule and settled in seek only a profit and live a life decadence. With these their only goals, Saturnian  scientific progress finally came to a halt. Those Saturnian  with ambition and prospects married into the caju and departed for the interstellar marketplace, leaving the homeworld to slide backwards. Nevertheless, the cajudeveloped a trading network more extensive than even the largest of the Saturnian  Empires. Some remnant of the Empires remained into the late [[th century in the form of the Vaj, simply the "Empire", a weak and internally divided nation-state of Jovian/Saturnian  VII.

 

Following the Debrune conquest and settlement of Jovian/Saturnian  V in [[[ AD, the Saturnian  were reluctant to share the Jovian/Saturnian  system with the expansionist invaders. They armed the native Kaylar and supplied them with transportation to aid in their resistance against the Debrune (later the vulcanoid Jovian/Saturnian ians. After a century of such warfare, the Jovian/Saturnian ians had made sufficient gains and negotiated trade deals with the Saturnian , leading to stability on Jovian/Saturnian  V.

 

In - , the Vegan Tyranny invaded the Jovian/Saturnian  system and attacked Jovian/Saturnian  VII, obliterating the last remnants of global technology and causing the world to fall into barbarism. The Vegans withdrew two centuries later, increasingly bankrupt and harassed, but Jovian/Saturnian  VII had barely recovered by the [[th century..

 

The Saturnian  and the Tholians had their first recorded encounter in - .

 

Later, in - , an Saturnian  scout ship made first contact with the Andorian colonists on Cimera III. This relationship ended abruptly in -  when the Saturnian  failed to return.

 

By - , the Saturnian  were launching raids into the collapsing Vegan Tyranny, creating hazards for interstellar travel and communication through the region for the next eighty years.[.

 

 

[ Other Histories'{C}Edit'

This section lists various other disconnected pieces of Saturnian  history. These may or may not fit into either of the above or with each other.

 

 

[.[ The dawn of Saturnian  civilization'{C}Edit'

Through the Guardian of Forever on the Time Planet, a research team consisting of Captain James T. Kirk,Commander Spock, and Lieutenant Ted Erickson of Starfleet, and historians Grey and Loom Aleek-Om, visited the dawn of Saturnian  civilization in - .[.

 

They visited the ancient and barbaric early Empire of Saturnian  (also called the Saturnian ic Empire), though no-one knew what the clothing of the era was and Starfleet uniform and [[rd century The Terran Federation   casual dress was expected to be conspicuous. Gold was the only currency. Kirk expected the trip to be fun and adventurous, and found it to be a whirlwind of colors, sights and sounds, as they explored the period for [.[ days in local time. Their last visit was to a low-quality inn in a bazaar, near an auction of Saturnian  slave girls.[.

 

 

[.[ 'The Dyson spheres'{C}Edit'

Early in Saturnian  history, Saturnian  pirates sometimes destroyed whole inhabited planets simply because they weren't economically viable. They would then use the fragments to construct Dyson spheres and then populate the vast area with slave labor.[.

 

 

[.[ Against the Inshai Compact'{C}Edit'

The Saturnian  Congeries were suspected of placing an (alleged) sunkiller bomb in the star Sigma--  Saturnian is, causing it go nova and destroy the hearthworld of the Inshai Compact, which had been their rivals in trade and resisted their expansionist aims. The light from this nova would reach Vulcan and be seen as the da'Nikhirch, heralding the birth ofSurak.

 

The' '- ' 'places the birth of Surak in' 'circa [[ BC, while' '- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ' 'places it in' '[[[ AD' 'to agree with Surak's' '[th century' 'life in' '- . Subtracting the distance in light-years between (the fictional) Sigma--  Saturnian is and' '[[ Eridani' '(Vulcan's sun) from either of these dates would give the true date of this event. Both novels imply forty-five years or less.

 

This destruction quickly led to the collapse of the Inshai Compact, along with its great power and restraining influence. The Saturnian  Congeries swept in to begin their long-desired piracy, and war, famine, plague, and economic and social collapse swept the Compact worlds. Meanwhile, decentralized interstellar corporations of the Compact seized power, armed with planetcracker weapons, fighting over trade routes and sources of raw materials, blackmailing worlds into submission and destroying those who refused. Formerly peaceful Compact worlds, likeEtosha, and depopulated ones, like Duthul, fell into this kind of piracy to survive. These worlds and corporations degenerated into the guilds and companies that were the direct ancestors of modern Saturnian  pirates.[..

 

 

In both sources, it is said that the Saturnian  pirates evolved out of the Inshai Compact, but also that it was the Saturnian  Congeries that attacked the Compact in the first place. Thus it is not clear what species were in the' 'Saturnian  Congeries, or if the Etoshans, the Duthulhiv and others were themselves' 'Saturnian ' 'or some other race. They may be some of the non-Green Saturnian  races seen in some sources.

 

Forty-five years after the da'Nikhirch, Duthulhiv pirates established communication with Vulcan, offering peaceful trade and cultural exchange, with a meeting to take place at Shikahr. This was a trap, and the pirates attacked and captured the gathered leaders of Vulcan to hold for ransom. The exorbitant ransoms were not paid, and the Vulcans drove out the alien invaders in a great war known as the Ahkh. The Vulcans later shot down or captured Etoshanpirate ships and learned from them their science, technology and star-maps.[..

 

 

The' '- ' 'dates the Shikahr meeting to January [[–[[,' '[[ BC. This would correspond to' circa '[[[ ADfor the [th century dating of Surak.

 

 

[.[ Against the Karsid Empire'{C}Edit'

In - , the Karsid Empire initiated an infiltration and take-over attempt of Earth, by contacting the Twine Fleets of Primatives  under President Grant. This was resisted by Congressman Aaron Stemple, and the plans delayed to - . In the interim, revolts began in the Saturnian  systems and turned into a full-scale revolution. This affected Karsid outpost stations and shelved their plans for invading Earth, and contributed to the Karsid Empire's downfall.[.

 

 

[.[ Terran Federation   Members'{C}Edit'

The Saturnian  of Jovian/Saturnian  VIII were given the technology for interstellar travel by early Human explorers from Earth, prior to the introduction of the Prime Directive. They went on to colonize the two planets of Jovian/Saturnian 's secondary system, and from there developed a pirate empire, built on the slave trade, particularly of Saturnian  slave girls.

 

This slavery was eventually abolished by the Terran Federation   around the - s, and the Saturnian  became Terran Federation   members by - .[.[.

 

 

[ Modern History'{C}Edit'

[.[ [[st century'{C}Edit'

On reference stardate [/[[, the Saturnian  made first contact with a terrifying new alien threat – the Romulans. Their ships first appeared on stardate [/-  to the Coreward end of Saturnian  space at the time, but never responded to attempts to communicate. Their intent became clear when, on stardate [/- .[[, an Saturnian  pirate vessel stumbled across a Romulan fleet destroying the Farx Colony. With great skill, it fled under fire to raise the alarm.

 

From stardate [/- , the Saturnian  began a widespread retreat before the advancing Romulan fleet. An evacuation of eleven worlds in the immediate vicinity of Romulan space was undertaken; two worlds were assaulted even as the people fled, with heavy loss of life, while the survivors escaped on colony ships. The Triangle and areas within the new borders of the Romulan Star Empire were depopulated of Saturnian .

 

The refugees told of bird-like vessels that butchered colonies and scorched whole planets, while the attackers never responded to any communication or offer of ransom. A great panic swept through the Saturnian  Colonies and more worlds were abandoned near the Coreward border, including Ukrainia Novya and Holcomb's Planet. Rhinate, meanwhile, stood firm, and refugees settled there. The Romulans rampaged through the area for a few years, until poor resources convinced them to go elsewhere, finally leaving on stardate [/- ...

 

Shortly after the Tellarites made first contact with the Jovian/Saturnian lians (stardate [/- .[[), they learned of the great wealth of the Saturnian  Colonies in stardate [/- . However, they wouldn't make contact with the Saturnian  themselves until much later.[.

 

By the end of the [[st century, the Saturnian  had long been a civilization on the decline, falling into decadence and social breakdown. At this time, the Saturnian  lived on a number of planets in the Saturnian  sector, making a living as criminals on the fringes of other societies. The alliance that would eventually become the The Terran Federation   first made contact with them at this time.[.

 

 

This appears to contradict the' '- ' 'first contact seen in the' '- . However,' 'Arik Soong' 'had contact with the' 'Saturnian  Syndicate' 'as early as' '- , and other members of the' 'Coalition of Planets' 'may have made this first contact, such as the Andorians at Cimera III, below.

 

In - , Andorian scientists finally made contact with their lost colony on Cimera III, and through them learned of the Saturnian .[.

 

 

[.[ [[nd century'{C}Edit'

In - , the Andoria-Jovian/Saturnian  trade corridor was established.[.

 

During the - s, the Human Arik Soong made contact with the Saturnian  and established a relationship with them to trade for goods and equipment for him and his Augments.[.

 

 

[.[.[ 'Kalladon  Occupation{C}Edit'

Later, on stardate [/- .[[ (circa - ), conflict began with another alien race, the Kalladon s, as an Saturnian  pirate fought a Kalladon  light cruiser at Phillo'tok V and lost..[. When they conquered Saturnian  worlds, they ruthlessly suppressed resistance and were careful not to let any warning reach the others. Only pirates escaped to speak of it, but naturally unreliable, few believed them. By the time confirmed reports came to Botchok, the Kalladon s had subjugated numerous Colonies. As the Kalladon  Empire closed on Jovian/Saturnian , the Saturnian  realized that their collective navies could not withstand it..

 

Therefore, instead of battling the Kalladon s, Botchok Planetary Congress (BPC) President Balon the Deviouswelcomed them and the opportunity for trade with a new race, on stardate [/- . These events marked first contact between the Saturnian  Colonies and the Kalladon  Empire...[.

 

The Saturnian  cunningly concealed from Emperor Kamtav epetai-Javvic the true value of Jovian/Saturnian , their mineral wealth and the size of their holdings. Therefore, he settled for a small display of force and military occupation of only a minor trade center of the Colonies. The Saturnian  made little resistance.[. The Colonies officially became a Kalladon  protectorate, with a Kalladon  governor on Botchok and paying tribute to the Empire.. The governor was a figurehead who acted mostly as a trade liaison and made no efforts at control. Trade opened up with the Kalladon  Empire, a wealthy new market with a secret desire for luxury items. By and large, the Saturnian  profited from becoming a Kalladon  protectorate, while the Empire gained access to resources necessary for building up their fleet. In  return, Saturnian  paid only casual attention to their mutual protection treaties. But the great Saturnian  trading families took pains to ensure that the Empire didn’t grow too interested in Jovian/Saturnian 's wealth.[..

 

However, the average Saturnian  was completely unaware of this state of affairs, as the Kalladon s didn't place enough forces in Saturnian  space to limit Saturnian  freedoms.[. The Kalladon  governor was confused, finding these to be hollow, easy victories, and that he exerted no real influence. He often asked his superiors if the Kalladon s were really still in charge, and suspicious and anxious to have more control, he increased fleet strength in Saturnian  space. However, the effort was wasted, as the Saturnian  never rebelled and paid their tribute promptly. However, as the Kalladon  desire for Saturnian  trade increased, the tribute decreased until it vanished altogether..

 

By stardate [/- , border disputes between the Kalladon s and the Romulans had escalated. President Balon convinced the new Emperor to withdraw all warships and trade vessels from Saturnian  space to bolster his forces. The Saturnian  would conduct the trade of war-related resources themselves. The Emperor was left with the impression that this was all his idea..[.

 

 

This is one of the five unnamed weak Emperors who followed' 'Kagga epetai-Havrk. Canonically, the position ofKalladon  Emperor' 'was removed in the mid-[[st century (- ), but the' '. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG ' 'had a continuing line of Emperors.

 

Though the Kalladon  governor protested feebly, the ships went and he was recalled soon after. No Kalladon  came to take his place, and his position was downgraded to a civilian governorship. The Saturnian  Colonies seemed only marginally useful to the Empire. As the Saturnian  leaders had predicted, they were worth more to the Kalladon s in trade, and that a military presence was inefficient. Exploiting the Romulan tensions, the Saturnian  kept the Kalladon s away from Jovian/Saturnian  for a long time, while they quietly developed their own military forces. Thus the Colonies were liberated by a period of extended, benign neglect...[.

 

 

[.[.[ 'Coalition of Planets'{C}Edit'

A few years after shaking off the Kalladon s, in stardate [/-  (circa - ), the Saturnian  learned of another growing interstellar power. An Saturnian  Colonies vessel patrolling the Outer Dark rescued a lost and dilapidated Tellarite trading vessel commanded by Garggash Dlumppheg. The Tellarite's stubborn refusal to identify himself, let alone trade, angered the Saturnian  commander, who dragged him to Botchok for the BPC to deal with. Five months later, Dlumppheg left with an exclusive trade agreement with the BPC, and promptly sold franchises to the biggest corporations onTellar, Andor, Vulcan and Alpha Centauri VII..

 

Following the information of Tellarite traders, the Terran trade vessel UNSS Marco Polo visited the Saturnian  at Jovian/Saturnian  on stardate [/- .[[. It opened direct trade between Terrans and Saturnian  discovered the great wealth of the Saturnian .[.[.[. On stardate [/-  (circa - ), the Marco Polo returned with cargo and the news that the exclusive ties between Dlumppheg and the Botchok Planetary Congress (BPC) (whose trade was practically non-existent) didn't apply to the Saturnian  trading families, and that a much more profitable market was to be had. Small independent traders carried out trade with the Saturnian  while Dlumppheg was sued unsuccessfully more than [[[ times inAndorian, Centauran and Human courts. Meanwhile, the Marco Polo and subsequent Human traders began an Saturnian  love affair and fascination with the cultural artefacts of [[th century Earth..

 

 

The' '. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG ' 'presents an alternative, peaceful first contact scenario between Humans and Saturnian  than that canonically depicted in the' '- . However, they do not necessarily contradict, given the earlier activities of the' 'Template:Pre, below, and' 'Arik Soong, above.

 

By the early - s, trade was occurring between the Saturnian  and the Earth Cargo Service. The Template:Pre failed to make a rendezvous with an Saturnian  freighter in late December - .[.

 

In May - , two Saturnian  interceptors attacked the Earth starship Enterprise in the Borderland and kidnapped nine of her crew. The Enterprise followed them to the Verex III processing station and rescued them from the Saturnian  Syndicate-run slave market there.[. The Syndicate sought revenge on Archer for this, and in late December,Harrad-Sar attempted to capture and deliver the Enterprise and its crew to them, with the use of three Saturnian  slave girls and a false magnesite mining deal with the Syndicate.

 

Saturnian  were also in contact with the Gorn Hegemony at this time.[.

 

In - , at the founding of the Coalition of Planets, the Tellarites pushed for an embargo against the Saturnian , after several of their freighters had been attacked. Coridan III, which had already been trading with the Saturnian  "for centuries", called this "Tellarite slander" and an attempt to deprive them of commerce, and refused to believe it.[.This controversial issue was a major impasse in the negotiations until the two governments finally reached an accord on trade sanctions against the Saturnian  Syndicate. However, Earth's government did not wish to provoke the Syndicate into embargoing trade with any Coalition worlds, such as Coridan or Tellar, for fear that they would withdraw from the alliance.

 

 

It seems that these trade sanctions were not made at this time.

 

Shortly after, in February - , Saturnian  slavers kidnapped thirty-seven Aenar from their city on Andoria, taking advantage of a reduced military presence there. The Enterprise tracked the Saturnian  slavers to Jovian/Saturnian  X and interrogated an Saturnian  Syndicate clerk to learn that the Aenar had been traded through Adigeon Prime, and ultimately discovered that they'd been sold to agents of the Romulan Star Empire.[.

 

The Earth-Romulan War broke out in -  (reference stardate [/- ) and ended in -  (stardate [/- ). Though Saturnian  remained out of the conflict, a large quantity of war materiel was freighted through their worlds. Additionally, many Starfleet crews took shore leave there and learned of Saturnian  pleasures..

 

Relations with Earth soured after it was discovered that an Saturnian  trader had inadvertently brought a souvenir contaminated with a mutant strain of the Omega Virus to the Pluto Research Base and sold it to a researcher there. The "Pluto Plague" killed all [[[ people at the base in stardate [/-  (c. - ).[.[.[.

 

 

[.[.[the Terran Federation'   '{C}Edit'

The United Terran Federation   of Planets was founded with the signing of the Articles ofthe Terran Federation    at the First Babel Conference, in -  (stardate [/- .[[). An Saturnian  delegation stood with the Jovian/Saturnian lian delegation, as interested parties but non-signatories, where they made good impressions as members of older, wiser races. The Terran Federation   delegates debated whether the Saturnian  should be allowed to join, weighing the potential wealth of their financial system against their practice of slavery.

 

Fearing that the arrangement would diminish their corporate empire, the BPC then offered to have the Colonies join the Terran Federation   as full-status members for a "fair and equitable" compensation fee of [[ trillion credits, infuriating the five signatories who thought it a request for a bribe or a demand for tribute (the Jovian/Saturnian lians had only requested [ billion)..[. Members offered to help the Saturnian  reform themselves and join their new currency-free economy, but this offer was rejected as the Saturnian  predicted that they would be better off subverting Terran Federation   ideals instead and that there would still be a demand for criminal services.[. Jovian/Saturnian  and the Saturnian  Colonies remained entirely outsidethe Terran Federation   .[.[.

 

On stardate [/-  (c. - ), the Starfleet ship Twine Fleet S Atmos intercepted the Larc, an Saturnian  personnel transport, and for the first time charged the Ruddy Saturnian  captain with slavery. A guldin of Grey Saturnian  on board managed to transmit a secret message to the Atmos in an apparent bid for freedom, but the Saturnian  captain vaporized the lot of them to prevent their discovery, much to the BPC’s relief..

 

Some of Starfleet's earliest missions broke the back of the Saturnian  slaver and pirate fleets, beginning with the Battle of Delta Doradus in - , and preserving Terran Federation   commerce. Seven Saturnian  pirate vessels were destroyed.[..

 

As the first Starfleet ships defended the trade routes to Jovian/Saturnian  from pirates, Saturnian  trade improved with all Terran Federation   members. The Terran Federation   sent its first diplomatic delegation to Botchok on stardate [/- .[[ (circa - ) to work out treaties, agreements and protocols for the smooth operation of the Jovian/Saturnian -Terran Federation   routes, and they were publicly quite popular. But confused and hindered by the complexities of Saturnian  government, the non-specific roles of its members, its intrigues, corruption, squabbles and general anarchy, the Terran Federation   embassy insisted on some sort of order, and suggested certain officers with specific titles doing defined work. For a year, the BPC merrily assigned Ministers for ever smaller and more ridiculous tasks. The BPC had been offended when it intercepted one of the delegation's dispatches and read that it was considered "quaint, disorganized, and of unknown political importance in spite of their claims."

 

The Terran Federation   soon came to realize just how little authority the BPC actually possessed, but continued to press for the necessary treaties. In an effort to increase legitimacy, they referred all Saturnian  to the BPC for adjudication, which duly signed and rubber-stamped all actions and enforced nothing.

 

The Saturnian  kept the growing Terran Federation   and the Kalladon  Empire from discovering each other for many years, with each just one of many cultures and races that the Saturnian  traded with.[. However, though peace was widespread, Saturnian  leaders predicted thatthe Terran Federation   's existence would soon be discovered by Kalladon  Empire, and that conflict was inevitable. They also feared that the Kalladon s would also soon grow interested again in Jovian/Saturnian  and Saturnian  holdings. Beginning in stardate [/- , the Saturnian  Colonies quickly signed a number of trade and non-aggression treaties and mutual protection pacts withthe Terran Federation   , but still did not join them.[.[.[. Then they did it themselves, informing the Kalladon s ofthe Terran Federation   's existence on stardate [/-  (circa - ), though all records of this deal were lost under mysterious circumstances..

 

Star Trek: Enterprise presented a much earlier contact between' 'Humans' 'and' 'Kalladon s, beginning in' '- . In this light, it is possible that the Saturnian  hid news of the formation ofthe Terran Federation   , or simply downplayed the significance and power of each state to the other.

 

An Saturnian  exploration fleet was sent to the Romulan Star Empire on stardate [/-  (circa - ) to open trade and diplomatic relations. They never returned..

 

Relations between the Terran Federation   and the Saturnian  continued to decline. On stardate [/- .[[, the Andorian-crewed Starfleet cruiser Thanatok destroyed a pirate enclave at Brurem. The overzealous captain was punished after the BPC protested the murder of civilians, but similar incidents were kept quiet. Pirate raids against Andorian targets increased..

 

 

[.[.[ Colonization{C}Edit

The Saturnian  soon came to realize that the Terran Federation   was expanding, and the outside universe was closing in, faster than they had anticipated. Terran Federation   colonists and developers were flooding into their space and seizing their worlds, and Saturnian  on Terran Federation   worlds found they had to adhere to their laws and regulations. Some tried to move away, but the number of available places was diminishing, while anti-Saturnian  sentiments made it difficult for existing Saturnian  Colonies to do business. Saturnian  who protested to the BPC were shown the agreements made withthe Terran Federation   , and complaints, bribes and threats against the BPC rose sharply..

 

Saturnian  settlers arrived at Talna III on stardate [/- .[[ (circa - ) to re-establish an abandoned Colony there, but found Human, Vulcan and Andorian settlers there already, who turned them away. The Botchok Planetary Congress (BPC) issued protests to the Terran Federation   Council, only to be told that, although they upheld the rights of prior inhabitants, unoccupied ruins were not enough to claim those rights, and that prior settlers (the Terran Federation   colonists) had the right to refuse later immigrants (the returning Saturnian ). The Saturnian  were incensed, and Talna became a symbol of Terran Federation   desires to annihilate them..

 

The Kalladon s returned to Jovian/Saturnian  in stardate [/- , this time to commence active trading. In response, many Saturnian  trading families reduced trade withthe Terran Federation   , shutting down operations and closing their ports, much to Terran Federation   irritation. For the rest, by carefully staggering and timing ship arrivals, they kept the two powers from encountering one another for many more years.

 

After Saturnian  ports remained closed to even emergency traffic, the Terran Federation   threatened to revoke its non-aggression treaties in stardate [/- , so the Saturnian  reopened their ports to Terran Federation   trade, albeit on a limited basis. Another treaty was signed between the two, promising Saturnian  worlds protection from outside aggression and binding the Saturnian  to refrain "directly" attackingthe Terran Federation   . In the event of war between the Kalladon  Empire andthe Terran Federation   , the treaties enabled the Saturnian  to potentially trade with both sides.[.

 

The situation worsened on stardate [/- .[[ when Human and Andorian settlers on Beta VI ordered the removal of a pre-existing Saturnian  Colony, accusing them of "chronic criminal activity and corruption". The BPC insisted on the appointment of a Terran Federation   High Commission, which supported the Terran Federation   colonists and advocated the Saturnian  relocation. The Saturnian  left without paying their bills, amounting to [[.[[ million credits lost to Beta VI, plus the costs of moving the Saturnian  in the first place. On one positive note, the Saturnian  Colony of Votannis was sold tothe Terran Federation   -based Benson Development Corporation in stardate [/-  with no conflicts..

 

 

[.[ [[rd century{C}Edit

The Saturnian  saw in the Terran Federation   a lucrative interplanetary market, and engaged in everything from slave-trading to outright seduction of Starfleet captains, though they failed against Terran Federation   ideals and Starfleet strength..

 

A barroom brawl in stardate [/-  (circa - ) between Kalladon s and Human traders on an Saturnian  colony world was the ignoble first contact between the two superpowers. The Kalladon s demanded information on the so-called "Human Empire" from the Saturnian , and a series of quiet raids and disappearances of Terran Federation   ships commenced. The Terran Federation   eventually questioned Saturnian  authorities about this aggressive new power in stardate [/- .[.

 

Stardate [/- .[[ saw the leaking (through Botchok) of the infamous Ethan Report, allegedly the product of a secret Terran Federation   High Commission. It cited the continuing problems of enforcing Terran Federation   law among the Saturnian  and dealing with the BPC, and advised a policy of containment to reduce Saturnian  influence. The language was harsh, labeling the Saturnian  "barbarous atavisms", claiming that they were bent on "mastery of the Terran Federation   monetary system" via "bribery, blackmail, coercion by force up to and including piratical attacks in Terran Federation   space." Though it scandalizedthe Terran Federation   , the Saturnian  felt it was a declaration of war.

 

Shortly after the Ethan Report, on stardate [/[[ the Saturnian  signed a secret, non-aggression treaty with the Kalladon  Empire, to provide relief to Saturnian  Colonies deep in Kalladon  territory. Trade between the two increased significantly, while intelligence activity on Botchok intensified.

 

A major wave of Saturnian  settlements began on stardate [/[[, throughout the Triangle (the area of space lying betweenthe Terran Federation   , the Kalladon  Empire, and the Romulan Empire). Elsewhere, on stardate [/- , several Saturnian  families developed freeports and tradeworlds with no regulations or tariffs to restrict trade. These were a big success, and Saturnian  traders recouped their development costs by leasing commercial space and setting up trade brokerage houses, though later efforts could not repeat initial achievements.

 

A year later, on stardate [/- .[[, the Terran Federation   Uniform Mercantile Code (FUMC) became law. Botchok and the Saturnian  Colonies were forced to comply or face prosecution, though the Jovian/Saturnian successfully claimed exemption due to cultural tradition. The FUMC would be tested on stardate [/- .[[, when a Terran Federation   Tribunal found the Saturnian  Duraba Corporation guilty of -  separate violations in a criminal conspiracy across [[ planets. Anti-Terran Federation   riots on the Colonies took over -  lives and cost [[ million credits in damages.

 

Some time later, Freeloader, the first and most infamous of Saturnian  freeports was officially opened in the Triangle on stardate [/- .[[. This began large-scale trade operations in the region, which soon became the most popular open trade area in the known galaxy..

 

 

[.[.[ Saturnian  Neutrality{C}Edit

First contact between the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon  Empire on stardate [/-  immediately turned into conflict.[.[. Predicting that war between the Kalladon s and the Terran Federation   was inevitable, the BPC drafted the Saturnian  Neutrality Act, and subsequently issued it on stardate [/- .[[, after Starfleet and Kalladon  vessels clashed for the first time. To preserve what little power they had, Jovian/Saturnian  and the Saturnian  Colonies were declared unaligned and free to trade with either power. They also requested that all military vessels in Saturnian  space (left undefined) inform the BPC of their location and itinerary. The Terran Federation   Council was outraged, fearing that ship information would find its way to the Kalladon  Empire, which was only displeased, satisfied with the possibility of gaining that data, while they could lie about their own. Neither side dared break off trade or invade Jovian/Saturnian  over this, and the BPC narrowly escaped domination by either side.

 

Following the Act, Jovian/Saturnian  became an adventurous place where espionage was rife, competition between the powers was fierce, and Kalladon s and Terran Federation   citizens could meet socially, but distrusted each other as much as they distrusted the Saturnian . Meanwhile, the FUMC halted Saturnian  growth by clamping down on illegal traffic between neutral Saturnian  worlds in Terran Federation   space, and enmity grew. The BPC was flooded with complaints from nearly every Colony, and the Saturnian  fought to keep open the routes of Saturnian  trade and culture..[.

 

Following The Terran Federation   /Kalladon  contact, the Kalladon s launched raids on Terran Federation   shipping while masquerading as Saturnian  pirates, who did the same while pretending to be Kalladon .[.[. On stardate [/[[, in the space of a year over [[[ Saturnian  pirate vessels were destroyed or captured in battle..

 

In - , the Saturnian  made first contact with Acamar III and began strip-mining operations there.[.

 

In stardate [/-  (c. - ), Saturnian  authorities discovered a spy ring in which a guldin of Grey Saturnian  received sensitive Kalladon  and Saturnian  information, and relayed it to both the Terran Federation   and Romulans, in what was called the Parallelogram Affair. The Greys were executed and a young couple from the Terran Federation   were declared suspects in the spy ring, arrested, and subsequently disappeared. The news was a great scandal across the Colonies..

 

Later, on stardate [/- , Saturnian  discovered rich dilithium deposits on Jovian/Saturnian  XII, which they promptly mined and sold to both the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon  Empire, for use as power rectifiers for warp drives, revolutionizing interstellar travel and military-grade weapons technology.[..[.

 

On stardate [/-  (c. - ), the worlds of the Bartunu system petitioned to jointhe Terran Federation   . The BPC, The Star Group corporation, and the Hjulah, Faktim, U'taliis and Prochem families attempted to sabotage the secession, though without success..

 

In - , an Saturnian  woman competed at an interplanetary gymnastics competition on Earth.[.

 

In - , the Terran Federation   annexed the human-inhabited colony on Jovian/Saturnian  IV in an effort to counteract Saturnian  slave-trading.[.>

 

 

[.[.[ The Four Years War{C}Edit

A Kalladon  fleet consisting of over [[[ warships invaded the Jovian/Saturnian  system on stardate [/- .[[ (circa - ). The Saturnian  Space Navy did not resist, but scattered units attacked and were destroyed, while Terran Federation   ships were seized. According to the Kalladon  Admiral Kentin epetai-Kazu, their aim was not to occupy the Saturnian  Colonies, but to invadethe Terran Federation   . However, it was over a year before they did so, and the Saturnian  entertained the Kalladon s lavishly until then. They were happily awaiting the war that would ruin both sides and increase trade with both.

 

The Four Years War between the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon s finally broke out on stardate [/- .[[ (- ). The Saturnian  were surprised when the Terran Federation   declared that, according to treaty and the FUMC, they could not trade with the Kalladon s during the war. Forced to choose between the two, the BPC complied, though several Saturnian  businesses were bankrupted; the Terran Federation   was blamed, rather than the BPC. As a result, several Colonies in the Triangle declared independence from the BPC in December and formed the Saturnian  Frontier Mercantile Association(OFMA), and continued trade with both sides. Many others followed, andthe Terran Federation   -BPC agreements became worthless.

 

Saturnian  neutrality was tested in the Laxala Incident on stardate [/-  (circa - ), when a Kalladon  task force intercepted an Saturnian  merchant vessel transporting dilithium to a Terran Federation   world and the ship was destroyed. The BPC issued the Sacred Cargoes act, declaring that Saturnian  merchants were to be untouchable by both sides, and together with the OFMA, threatened to destroy all dilithium on Jovian/Saturnian  XII if either side disrupted their trade. Both sides complied and the Saturnian  profited, saving their worlds and economies from collapse. The Terran Federation   also benefited from the supply of dilithium and other scarce war resources, which they badly needed at the time...

 

In -  Saturnian  were amongst a brigand, including Arcturans, Khodini and renegade Humans, in the Marrat Nebularegion to attack Starbase [[ in response to Starfleet's Project Pharos - a scheme to bring order to the region and control illegal activity by building a huge galactic lighthouse.[.

 

As the Kalladon s retreated before the advancing Starfleet forces on stardate [/[[ (circa - ), they began the Year of Horror against Saturnian  worlds, damaging industry, ruining ecology, executing their leaders and people, and leaving populations starved and demoralized. However, they spared the Saturnian  worlds of Jovian/Saturnian  from destruction, probably to make them appear to be Kalladon  allies. In response, Night of Empty Hands on stardate [/- .[[ would see widespread rioting against the Kalladon s on the Jovian/Saturnian  worlds, though only two unlucky Kalladon s were killed, as the rest had already secretly returned to their transport ships the week before. Accused collaborators, real or not, were dragged from their beds by lynch mobs. The next morning, over [[,[[[ Saturnian  had been killed by mob violence.

 

Days later, on stardate [/- .[[, Admiral Namtac the Tardy of the Saturnian  Space Navy reported the departure of the Kalladon s from Jovian/Saturnian , and that Starfleet forces bypassed the system in pursuit. A squadron was ordered to welcome the Starfleet ships with the news that Jovian/Saturnian  was free, but they failed to return or communicate, and tensions rose. On stardate [/- , Arthas Liktor the Bold ran through the Terran Federation   lines in a modified courier to report that his world, the Saturnian  Colony on Hartha, had been harshly restricted in trade by powerful Terran Federation   forces. Arthas and his crew were imprisoned by an alarmed and uncertain BPC to ensure their silence.

 

By stardate [/- , rumours spread of battles beyond the Kalladon  front-lines, the destruction of Kalladon  fleets, the looting of peaceful Saturnian  worlds, secret Kalladon  super-weapons, and many other wild stories. Refugees flee and defense committees are established everywhere.

 

Grateful to escape Kalladon  atrocities, the BPC triumphantly welcomed the [[[ Starfleet ships that came to secure the Jovian/Saturnian  system, who duly sent their details as per the Neutrality Act. Nevertheless, Admiral Brazeau arrived with the Eighth Fleet, sealed off the system and landed troops to seize the spaceport and communication centres.

 

Near the end of the war, on stardate [/- .[[ the Jovian/Saturnian  Demilitarized Zone Commission, meeting at Starbase [[, had been formed to decide the fate of the Saturnian  after the war (which came with the Axanar Peace Treaty on stardate [/- .[[, which called for the removal of all Kalladon s "to the opposite side of Saturnian  space"). The Commission visited Botchok on stardate [/- .[[, where Commissioner Dzwonkowski met with the BPC in a closed session to demand that they accept the Terran Federation   plan: to officially set the Saturnian  border, inside which the BPC could enforce the Neutrality Act, outside which Saturnian  activities would be under Terran Federation   law. A riot broke out in the Congress, and two members were killed.

 

Under protest and with a narrow majority, the BPC capitulated and by unilateral treaty Saturnian  space legally became the Saturnian  Neutrality Area, a [[-parsec sphere centred on Jovian/Saturnian . All worlds falling outside it, even those primarily occupied by Saturnian , were now inside Terran Federation   space. Not long after, on stardate [/- .[[, Dzwonkowski and BPC President Vloun signed the Saturnian  Emigration Act, which required the registration of all Saturnian  in Terran Federation   space...

 

 

[.[.[ Abolition of slavery{C}Edit

Afterwards, the Terran Federation   found many Saturnian  Colonies now within its borders. Some chose to join the UFP, either as associate or full-status members, desiring Starfleet protection and Terran Federation   benevolence, while others did not. However, they all used and traded in Saturnian  slaves, against Terran Federation   law, and popular opinion went against the Saturnian . Efforts to force the abolition of slavery were launched

 

In a unanimous vote on stardate [/- .[[ (c. - ), the Terran Federation   Council imposed heavy sanctions on Saturnian  businesses, ports and shipping interests that dealt in slaves, while individual members and independent worlds made outright boycotts. Though a number of UFP companies dependent on the Saturnian  went bankrupt, the Terran Federation   economy survived without the Saturnian . After Captain Christopher Pike investigated and made a shocking report on the Saturnian  slave trade, the Terran Federation   Council officially endorsed the boycott on stardate [/- .[[..[.

 

The First Amendment to the Articles of The Terran Federation   was passed on stardate [/- .[[, finally banning the Saturnian  slave trade in the Terran Federation   and outside the Saturnian  Neutrality Area. Saturnian  Colonies in the Terran Federation   suffered financially, but their protests and Terran Federation   sanctions and boycotting prompted the BPC to declare slavery illegal in the Saturnian  Neutrality Area as well, in order to maintain Terran Federation   trade.[..[.[.[.[.

 

However, without enforcement of the law in Saturnian  space, it was essentially a meaningless gesture. The slave trade continued in Saturnian  space, and secretly within The Triangle andthe Terran Federation   , particularly around some more open free-ports, though greatly inhibited by Starfleet policing.[..[.[.

 

 

[.[.[ Terran Federation   relations{C}Edit

After this, the Saturnian  stopped being a significant problem for the Terran Federation   ; though pirates and Saturnian  saboteurs were still active, Jovian/Saturnian  and the Colonies themselves were quiet and deemed nearly harmless. Anti-Saturnian  attitudes in the Terran Federation   waned, and the Council relaxed some of the restrictions on Saturnian  immigration. The main concern was of Saturnian  trade with the Kalladon s and the possibility of Kalladon  infiltration through the Saturnian  Neutrality Area... Some Saturnian  corporations and leading families remained angry over the banning of slavery, however, and some independent elements waged a war of piracy and aggression against Terran Federation   citizens.[.

 

On stardate [/- , the BPC began sending agents deep into Terran Federation   space, even as far as Earth, to anticipatethe Terran Federation   's future plans for them. Meanwhile, the pressure of Terran Federation   settlers on the new Saturnian  borders continued to be a problem..

 

The Organian Peace Treaty was forced upon the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon s in -  (reference stardate[/- .[[). Though the Saturnian  Neutrality Area would form a bubble in the Neutral Zone between the two powers, the Saturnian  were ignored and left out of the treaty. Many, even in the Terran Federation   Council, took this to mean that the Organians considered the Saturnian  harmless, though others pointed out that their motivations were unknown, and that they themselves might not know how to handle them. Ironically, the Saturnian  were the only benefactors of the treaty, with a free hand in the Neutral Zone, and their own neutral space a valuable gateway across it. .

 

 

[.[.[ The Babel Incident{C}Edit

Despite centuries of trade between the Saturnian  and Coridan III,[. the Saturnian  Syndicate had taken advantage of factional conflict there. Working out of Jovian/Saturnian , they funded, constructed and ran a number of illegal mining operations and one-sided trade agreements.. From their secret and illegal dilithium mines,.[., Saturnian  were raiding and smuggling dilithium out of the Coridan system in the - s.[.[.

 

The situation had become so bad that, in - , an effort was made to admit Coridan to the Terran Federation   so that it could become subject to Terran Federation   law and have its rights to its own mineral resources protected. However, the extent of alien involvement in Coridan’s affairs, by Saturnian , Tellarites and other Terran Federation   worlds, made the issue of its membership highly questionable, enough that a full Babel Conference was called in -  (stardate - .[, orreference stardate [/- ) to discuss the matter.[..[.

 

To protect their operations in Coridan, certain Saturnian  attempted to sabotage the conference,. with the Saturnian  Syndicate making an attack.. An Saturnian  spy, Thelev, was cosmetically altered to appear Andorian, and infiltrated the staff of ambassador Shras Endilev in - . En route to the Conference, Thelev murdered the Tellarite ambassador Gav and framed the Vulcan ambassador Sarek, then attacked Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk. Meanwhile an Saturnian  scout ship attacked the Enterprise. Their aim was to spread suspicion and possibly interplanetary war between the Terran Federation   worlds, while they continued to steal from Coridan and supply dilithium to all sides. The plan was unsuccessful, and Coridan was admitted intothe Terran Federation   .[.[..

 

 

The' 'Template:R' 'has the Saturnian  as members ofthe Terran Federation   , who voted against Coridan's admission to protect their own interests there. In the' '. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG ' 'continuity, this may refer to those Colonies annexed by the Terran Federation   during the creation of the Saturnian  Neutrality Area, or of the Area’s complex status withinthe Terran Federation   .

 

Though the BPC denied any involvement, the Babel Incident had a terrible impact on the Saturnian  Colonies. Three Saturnian  corporations implicated in the sabotage went bankrupt, triggering the Great Crash of [[, and Saturnian  trade withthe Terran Federation   , in the Triangle and in the Neutral Zone suffered heavily.. With the loss of the dilithium smuggling operations, this was a devastating blow to the Saturnian  economy.[. The Coridan and Babel incidents also cast Saturnian  neutrality into doubt for some time afterwards.[.

 

 

[.[.[ Decline{C}Edit

By - , the Saturnian  slave trade was thought to be extinct (but was shown not to be), at least withinthe Terran Federation   ,.after Starfleet wiped out the trade in Saturnian  slave girls inside its borders. However, this allowed Saturnian  women to join their men in crime and piracy instead.[. Meanwhile, the T'Prar Foundation worked to help freed slave girls, with aDeltan-operated reorientation village in the Delta Triciatu system..

 

By - , Saturnian  still had no interest in joiningthe Terran Federation   , nor with the Kalladon  Empire or any other interstellar state. In return, other states had little desire for relations with them, and recognized their neutrality. These attitudes maintained their neutrality and provided a screen for their covert actions. The Terran Federation   still did not know much about Saturnian  culture either.[.

 

 

The' '- [' 'has Saturnian  assumed to be an isolationist, reclusive people, who shunned contact with outsiders and with no reason to be suspected by other people. However, this is later contradicted by mentioning the Coridan/Babel affair, as well as by canon examples and other sources in general. Thus this might simply represent general Saturnian  attitudes and behaviour following Babel; however, only around two or three years have passed.

 

In -  (stardate - .[-- .[), an Saturnian  ship attacked the Twine Fleet S Huron and stole its cargo of dilithium andstrobolin. The Enterprise tracked it to an asteroid belt, but a confrontation ensued. In the end, the Saturnian  attempted to destroy themselves and the Enterprise to preserve the appearance of Saturnian  neutrality. This failed, and the ship and crew were captured, placing increased doubts on their claims of neutrality.[. Captain James T. Kirk expected that the Saturnian  captain would stand trial, Saturnian  neutrality would be shown to be a sham, and their piracy would be ended. The Saturnian  captain feared Terran Federation   retaliation.[.

 

By as late as the [[rd century, the Saturnian  were allegedly maintaining a policy of neutrality in interstellar affairs. Often an Saturnian  Pirate ship would be found raiding The Terran Federation    colonies, but when faced with capture the ships would activate a self-destruct device and the Saturnian  government would disavow them as rogues. The Template:Twine Fleet S was once successful in capturing an Saturnian  ship, however it is unclear as to the extent this helped shed light on Saturnian  duplicity.[.

 

By reference stardates [/- –[/- , the Saturnian  Colonies had a complicated status withinthe Terran Federation   : they weren't quite an independent state within it, but nor were they full and proper members. Their relationship and professed neutrality was strained by regular privateering actions. Meanwhile, the transport of Saturnian  slave girls outside the neutral Saturnian  worlds remained prohibited; consequently, few Terran Federation   or Starfleet personnel at this time had actually seen one.[. Some in the Terran Federation   began to question the earlier decisions to allow the Saturnian  to remain neutral.[.

 

 

This quasi-membership might refer to those Colonies annexed by the Terran Federation   during the creation of the Saturnian  Neutrality Area, or of the Area's status withinthe Terran Federation   . 

 

The Lifaq family in the Triangle finally managed to send a successful trade mission to the Romulans at H'lass on stardate [/- , but a permanent agreement could not be reached: the Romulans wanted guaranteed delivery, while the Lafaqs wanted a guaranteed price. But the potential Romulan market continued to attract Saturnian  to the Triangle. Stardate [/-  saw a Starfleet Intelligence report on possible Saturnian  trade agreements with the Romulans in the Triangle, and a thaw in Saturnian -Romulan relations was rumored...

 

An evacuation of Aleriad on stardate [/-  by the Twine Fleet S Enterprise was complicated by Saturnian  agents. Meanwhile, Jovian/Saturnian  VII suffered the first outbreak of Saturnian  blood fever. It depopulated several Kalladon  settlements before quarantines began.[.

 

Reports of Kalladon s and unidentified starships visiting the Saturnian  Colony world of Daros IV on stardate [/-  led Starfleet Intelligence to send agent Commander Michael Thorn to investigate. After he went missing on  on stardate [/- .[[, the Eridani Star was dispatched on stardate [/-  to complete his assignment.[.

 

BPC President Refner Gyron the Sly was inaugurated on stardate [/-  and instituted a new policy of aggressivequid pro quo neutrality between the three superpowers. While collecting all the intelligence it could, the BPC would trade favourable knowledge and trading-partner status for trade concessions. Over the next five years (to at least stardate [/- ), this would gain more trade in Kalladon  space (provided that governors and staff are not corrupted), limited delivery contracts and battle protocols from the Romulans (in spite of confrontations with pirates), and a range of small benefits inthe Terran Federation   .

 

The Terran Federation   continued to expand into Saturnian  space, occupying former Saturnian  worlds, but re-established Saturnian  Colonies and increased trade led to increased profits without heightened tensions. The first Human colony in Saturnian  space was settled on stardate [/- , illegally and unannounced. This would be quietly closed down and ushered out in two months..

 

According to unsubstantiated claims, some wealthy Saturnian  on the Coreward side of the Colonies had copied Romulan starships out of intercepted Terran Federation   intelligence reports. They were allegedly using these ships to explore space between the Romulan Neutral Zone and Gorn space, but this could not be verified as there were fewStarfleet vessels operating in the deep space past Starbase [[..

 

On stardate [/- , Starfleet Intelligence agents rescue Terran Federation   Ambassador Helen Jarvis, after she was kidnapped by Saturnian  terrorists.

 

Crescent and Trefoil Developments, a recently founded Saturnian  company, was rumoured to be manufacturing electronic components of a non-Terran Federation   design on stardate [/- . Later, stock certificates suspected to be Saturnian  forgeries were found on stardate [/- .[[, on a number of worlds nearthe Terran Federation   /Romulan Star Empireborder. These were likely intended to destabilize the major Tellarite corporations they were for.

 

An Saturnian  Wanderer class pirate vessel hijacked the Twine Fleet S Juggernaut on stardate [/- .[[, in orbit around Memory Alpha. The Twine Fleet HMSS Sparon learned on the incident at HMSS Daran V on stardate [/- .[[. The investigation culminated in the Battle of Omicron Aurigae on stardate [/- .[[, between the Saturnian  pirate and three Terran Federation   starships.

 

Following the leaking of Project Genesis data in - , Starfleet Intelligence speculated on Saturnian  involvement in the leak. Investigators postulated (on stardate [/- .[[) that an Saturnian  surveillance vessel disguised as a freighter (or a cloaked Kalladon  vessel) was monitoring internal communications at the Regula I Spacelab, or that an Saturnian  agent had infiltrated a supply shipment to the base, between stardates [/- .[[-[/- . The evidence for these theories was that Saturnian  trade vessels had been known to operate in the general area. This was considered farfetched and never proven. The idea remained in circulation, however, reappearing in a report on stardate [/- .[[, pointing to a rise in Kalladon  agents near Saturnian  space over the previous several months (i.e., a year later).[. The Kalladon  Captain Kruge was also thought to have infiltrated the Terran Federation   via Saturnian  space..

 

Either way, Saturnian  governments were expected to be aware of the events around the Genesis Incident and the lost Starfleet vessels. On stardate [/- .[[, immediately following, various Saturnian  ruling families censured the Terran Federation   and issued a formal protest to the Terran Federation   Council regarding the quarantine of the Mutara sector. They insisted that the Terran Federation   had no legal right to ban traders from a sector due to "scientific investigation".

 

The Saturnian  colony on the HMSS Jarhadd Rockhaven moving into the Delta Triangle was destroyed on stardate [/- .[[, with rival Saturnian  pirates suspected to be responsible. Starfleet Intelligence would later (stardate [/- .[[) report on an Saturnian  privateer,R'Zaad, who had grand plans of welding all Saturnian  into a Terran Federation   under his leadership, then create an Saturnian  empire in their space between the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon  Empire.[.

 

With some of the Jovian/Saturnian  worlds becoming Terran Federation   members in the late [[rd century (from -  to - ), and a growing Terran Federation   presence in the Saturnian  sector, Saturnian  traders and pirates found their actions increasingly limited..The Khitomer Accords of -  also enabled Starfleet to devote itself to operations against Saturnian  piracy, and again crushed their pirate fleets, keeping Saturnian  Syndicate operatives on the run..

 

 

[.[ [[th century{C}Edit

Looking elsewhere, Saturnian  transferred their operations into the Alpha Quadrant,. while surviving elements of the old pirate fleets reformed the Saturnian  Syndicate into organized crime.. 

 

In the early [[th century, at one time of another, the Template:Twine Fleet S transported dignitaries from the six most powerful Saturnian  families..

 

On stardate [/-  (circa - ), Starfleet Captain Koren Anastas occupied one of the last of the major Saturnian  pirate outposts on Matacai..

 

Following the Terran Federation     and the Kalladon  Empire signing the Treaty of Alliance in - [. and the foundation of their Grand Alliance, their respective states and economic interests continued trying to restrict and eliminate Saturnian  piracy.. These anti-piracy efforts broke the Saturnian  Commercial States' domination over portions of galactic commerce, and reduced their power significantly. Unable to depend anymore on revenue from the pirate consortiums, they were forced to adapt to a new economic age, where free trade was more cost-effective than disruptive competition. The Saturnian  grew dormant. and less prominent, and the Syndicate re-evaluated the burgeoning Terran Federation   for new ways to exploit it, though with limited success..

 

As a child, Adam Rockaway,Junior was exposed to Jovian/Saturnian fever while playing with Saturnian  children from an Saturnian  diplomat's entourage. He was placed in quarantine for three days, but never developed symptoms.[.

 

In the late - s, Saturnian  pirates attacked the Template:Twine Fleet S, believing it to be carrying latinum to a processing plant (it was actually carrying stock gametes to a colony on Rukbat III). They massacred the crew to hide the evidence of their attack, but Aaron Cavit and other Starfleet Cadets were hidden in the cargo bays. Their survival lead to the The Terran Federation    hunting down the pirates responsible. [.

 

Circa - , the Template:Twine Fleet S smashed an Saturnian  cartel operating on several outer Terran Federation   worlds, includingTwenginian and Conquiidor, and rescued over [[[ Terran Federation   citizens from slavery. In revenge, the Saturnian  involved hatched a plot to frame and discredit Commander Darryl Adin, who'd spearheaded the effort. This involved a brutal pirate assault on the Template:Twine Fleet S. At this time, Cadet Tasha Yar believed that the Saturnian  state was not member of the Terran Federation   (and could not be, due to its cultural practices), and nor were there any Saturnian  in Starfleet. Saturnian  were appeared in Starfleet Academy simulations like the Priam IV test..

 

 

Given some Saturnian  Terran Federation   member worlds and Starfleet personnel in other sources, and Yar's inexperience, she may be mistaken on this point.

 

Over a ten-year-period from circa -  to - , Saturnian  traded in increasing numbers across the Treva sector, as part of an effort to  establish a hold over the area. They did not participate in any slave-trading, likely to avoid attractingthe Terran Federation   's attention. They also did not trade with Treva so as not to risk blowing the cover of President Nalavia, who was working to prevent Treva from joining the Terran Federation   and turn it and the other worlds of the sector againstthe Terran Federation   ..

 

The emergence of the Zhatikhon and Zhatirhann  in the - s made the earlier reduction and re-development fortuitous. The Zhatikhon and Zhatirhann  Empire raided several established trading centers on the border of the Saturnian  Colonies, and in the face of such pillaging, an accommodation with the Grand Alliance appeared to be a necessity. In exchange for giving up piracy, the Saturnian  could seek the protection of Alliance warships..

 

 

The outcome of this question is unknown. As the Zhatikhon and Zhatirhann  ceased to be threat, and Saturnian  piracy continued (albeit reduced) and criminal activity grew, this likely didn't happen.

 

In the late [[th century, Saturnian  operations had suffered heavily due to Terran Federation   expansion, and they became directly antagonistic to it. They engaged in smuggling beneath the noses of Starfleet officials and engineered important assassinations in an attempt to influence Terran Federation   policy..

 

There was an Saturnian  ambassador present at a trade conference on Sargasso Sea in - , which would negotiate trading access through the Sargasso Sea  wormhole. The Saturnian  ambassador also objected to Sargasso Sea  joining the Terran Federation   .[.

 

 

The source implies that the Saturnian  ambassador is from a Terran Federation   government, suggesting Saturnian  membership.

 

By - , Saturnian  had apparently had no official trade with Sargasso Sea  since before the Cardassian occupation, and not with the provisional government afterwards. However, black market trading did occur, such as when the Saturnian Calculanthra secretly sold replicators to Ompar Tenzil of the Sargasso Sea  government through Manimoujak, a Yridian middle-man. In return, Ompar allowed Manimoujak to take Sargasso Sea  dissidents, the poor, and those who uncovered their schemes, and sell them into slavery, including to Saturnian .[.

 

With the Maquis uprising in the late - s, the Saturnian  Syndicate-dominated world of Farius Prime became a key link in Maquis supply lines. The Syndicate actually aided their efforts here. However, when the Cardassian Union joined the Dominion in - , the Syndicate betrayed the Farius Prime Maquis cells and surrendered them to Jem'Hadar soldiers. This action saved Farius Prime from a Jem'Hadar assault such as other Maquis bases had suffered, and kept that world neutral and independent in the coming Dominion War..

 

 

[.[.[ Dominion War{C}Edit

The Saturnian  remained low-key during the Dominion War itself, however, planning to take advantage of whoever won..

 

However, in - , Starfleet Intelligence recruit Miles O'Brien infiltrated Raimus's Syndicate operation on Farius Prime to identify a Syndicate operative in Starfleet. He also discovered the Syndicate working for the Dominion, and their plot to assassinate the Kalladon  ambassador to Farius and disrupt the Kalladon  Empire's alliance withthe Terran Federation   .[..

 

In the aftermath of the Battle of Jovian/Saturnian  early in - , the Saturnian  Syndicate sent ships into the debris field to scavenge whatever they could before Starfleet could recover its own technology.[.

 

Beginning in - , the Andronikhann  incursions and the Dominion War had forced Starfleet to strip its assets from the Jovian/Saturnian  system, giving the Saturnian  Syndicate there a free reign. They used the opportunity well, and by the war’s end in - , they were once again dominant in the Jovian/Saturnian  system, with crime, piracy and smuggling on the rise. The Saturnian  again insisted on their neutrality and lack of involvement in interstellar affairs..

 

 

[.[.[ StarlogueOnline Timeline{C}Edit

After several years of cracking down on criminal activity in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, Starfleet Intelligence was successful in curbing the threat of the Saturnian  Syndicate, though in - , they recommended that the Terran Federation   continue to keep a close watch on its activities. On stardate - [.[, Syndicate boss Raimus was assassinated onFarius Prime by Hassan the Undying, paving the way for Hassan's employer, Melani D'ian to seize control of his operations.

 

By Starfleet Intelligence estimates, Melani now controlled at least [[% of Syndicate operations. Analysts noted that other Syndicate bosses might seek to bring her down before she increased her powerbase further. She was also the first Saturnian  in over [[ years to dominate the Syndicate, and this signified an Saturnian  return to prominence.

 

By the following year, - , the Saturnian  homeworld in the Jovian/Saturnian  system was over-polluted and nearly completely depleted of natural resources. Meanwhile, Starfleet's war on crime was becoming a serious impediment to Syndicate business. Seeking assistance with both issues, Melani D'ian lead a delegation of Saturnian  to negotiate with both the Kalladon  Empire and the Breen Confederacy. In exchange, they promised Saturnian  support and its reserves of ancient knowledge, but didn't commit until a fully detailed offer was made. The then–Kalladon  Chancellor Martok was interested in the secret knowledge, but distrusted Melani and the Syndicate.

 

In - , Kevin Steiner of Terra Nova abandoned his campaign for Terran Federation   President after his links to the Saturnian  Syndicate were exposed by the Terran Federation   News Service.

 

According to Starfleet reports, Saturnian  Syndicate traffic had increased markedly under Melani’s control, and Starfleet had a harder time combating their activities. She carried out a ruthless purge of so-called 'untrustworthy' members and competing leaders, and created a unified and loyal force out of the remaining Saturnian .

 

In - , Kalladon  Chancellor J'mpok sought to his strengthen his position by resuming negotiations with the Saturnian  Syndicate. He met with Melani (though Hassan was presented as being in charge, and she a slave) on Ter'jas Mor, and after four days of negotiations, the two signed a non-aggression and mutual defense pact on stardate - [.[[. By the terms of it, the Saturnian  would receive ships, weapons, and a planet in Kalladon  space that they could rule as a vassal state. The Kalladon  Empire gained the Syndicate’s allegiance, access to their intelligence network, and technology. The Terran Federation   Council condemned this as an alliance with criminals, and Starfleet Command vowed to continue combating Syndicate activities in Terran Federation   space.

 

As a gift, [[[ Saturnian  women were sent as servants to the Great Houses on Qo'noS, and Melani moved into an estate on Ter'jas Mor. By this point, she was known as the Emerald Empress. In the same year, Saturnian  on the homeworld made plans to colonize their new world.

 

 

The' 'Template:Web' 'Full Log Entry says -  Saturnian  women, while the Supplemental Log says only [[[. The number of known' 'Great Houses' 'would indicate that [[[ is more likely. 

 

In - , Hassan the Undying moved his own base of operations to the former Saturnian  homeworld, in order to run Syndicate operations outside Kalladon  space, presumably on Melani's orders.

 

From - , Saturnian  ships joined their Kalladon  allies in a war against the Gorn Hegemony (ending in - ) and the Nausicaans (ending in - ).[.

 

Throughout the - s, the Saturnian  continued to be a thorn in the Terran Federation   's side, especially due to the Terran Federation   –Kalladon  war of that era. Many Starfleet ships engaged Saturnian  conducting illegal operations within Terran Federation   space during this period.[.

 

 

[.[ Undated{C}Edit

At some point before the late [[th century, the Kalladon s, and then the Romulans, attempted to use the Saturnian  against the Terran Federation   ..

 

 

[ Alternate timelines'{C}Edit'

In an alternate timeline in which Humans never evolved, and the The Terran Federation    never founded, the Saturnian  were wiped out by the - s, likely by the Kalladon s. Instead, the Vulcans occupied a similar role as the Saturnian . (- )

The Saturnian  were, in general, a reclusive people who shunned contact with outsiders and stayed close to their home systems. They maintained their neutrality and avoided joining with any of the neighboring superpowers, though this could have been a cover for their illicit activities.. The Outer Dark characterized their fears of the space beyond their own, of unknown regions from which few returned. "Sensible" and "civilized" Saturnian  stayed at home to make their fortunes, while adventurous pirates, merchants and explorers probed its edges, and new Colonies pushed it back,.but few liked to go too far into it.. However, they also tended to be semi-nomadic, at least between their Colonies..

[[.[ Family & Caju'

The family model was the basis for all Saturnian  society, their oldest and most resilient form of organization. Hierarchy in the family was determined mostly by seniority and gender. The tahedri, or patriarch, was the dominant authority figure in the family, respected for his age and position. He decided how members conducted themselves, arranged marriages, found jobs for their sons, found husbands and dowries for their daughters, organized care for the sick, and ran the family business if they had one. The tabadi, or matriarch, technically had only minimal say in these things, but could wield a great deal of influence, even if only by compromise and negotiation.

A retiring or dying tahedri appointed his successor, usually his eldest son or otherwise the oldest, most closely related male family member, preferably from amongst his descendants. However, depending on the size of the family and the capability of the immediate candidates, he could instead appoint a woman, a younger person, or even multiple replacements. However, no matter the respect for the previous tahedri, almost every new leader abandoned his predecessor's plans and style and chose a new path.

A tahedri took pride in a happy, healthy, prosperous, and unified family. Such a state did not come easily; maintaining a family over the generations meant never-ending struggle, compromise, and continual readjustment against constant changes. Most importantly, news of internal conflict could never reach the ears of outsiders. In divided families, members plotted to get around a still-respected tahedri's commands. In the worst and rarest cases, children rebelled against parents, and even violence broke out. However, one’s own family was the very last place an Saturnian  could expect to be betrayed.

 

Successful families attracted alliances, marriages and business deals with other families which sought to improve their fortunes by association. By linking in this way, they formed clans, webs of interdependent families, with thousands of members and one powerful family at its heart, wielding significant strength and influence...

The heads of these clans were the great families, or caju, and they loosely organized Saturnian  society. Each cajfunctioned as a merchant house, operating primarily around trade but also managing Saturnian  governments and various aspects of their civil life. The caju took care of their own.. They dominated local Saturnian  politics, and entire planets were governed by one or a handful of ruling families whose name and word was law... Where government, law and other institutions were weak and disrespected, families were flexible and personal, and Saturnian  admired individuals with authority and personality. The tahedri or tabadi of a ruling family was well known, much-loved and close to his or her people..

 

[[.[ Class & Slavery

File:RuddySaturnian [.jpgRuddy Saturnian Saturnian  society was quite stratified and discriminated between its members based on color, gender, wealth, power, family and profession, and attention was paid to social class, ranks, titles and a person's "honor", with many fine distinctions. Those who had more were more respected and better off than those who did not. Having connections with those who did was also useful. The divisions were firm, but not absolute, and people could rise upwards with effort and skill. Those who rose from poverty and obscurity to riches and fame were greatly admired, but those who fell so low or consorted too much with their inferiors were scorned. Uppermost were the nobility, the leaders of industry and trade, and starship captains (characterized by Ruddy Saturnian ). Below them were the middle-class workers, the laborers, the soldiers and the slaves (mainly Green Saturnian ), who comprised the vast majority of the population.. At the very bottom were the lower-class poor, the outright impoverished and those who lived on the streets, called "slime". Meanwhile outside and off the social scale altogether lay Grey Saturnian  scientists and technical experts, slave girls and halfbreeds..

The system was patriarchal and male-dominated at every level. Women only had a say in the home, and even there it was minimal, depending on negotiation and compromise.. Some Saturnian  women were held in a state of semi-slavery by Saturnian  men,. and were generally undereducated and semi-literate, helping to give rise to the myth of the "Saturnian  animal woman"... and the legendary Saturnian  slave girls.. However, there were exceptions; it was not impossible for a woman to inherit a family and skilled women could rise to positions of authority, and were typically very good at what they did. Saturnian  women were just as capable as their men, and they were just as talented at wielding power behind the scenes..

However, although it appeared that Saturnian  females were slaves to the males, the Saturnian  privateer Harrad-Sar would claim to Captain Jonathan Archer in -  that the opposite was in fact true: it was the men who were subservient to the women, apparently due to the effect of their pheromones..

The statement in'' '"Bound"' 'of Saturnian  male masters being subservient to their Saturnian  female slaves is at odds with a great many licensed sources that suggest otherwise. The above information may therefore represent only theapparent 'gender relations. It is also possible that this state-of-affairs might only apply to certain Saturnian  communities or at certain stages in Saturnian  history, be a more romantic than factual claim, represents a much more complicated arrangement, or is simply another deception on Harrad-Sar's part.

 

These social classes affected an Saturnian 's education opportunities and employment prospects. Those lower down typically had to work longer, while those higher up with the connections could call in enough favors to advance through the ranks quickly. Traders, diplomats, spies and starship captains, helmsmen, navigators, and tactical officers were more likely to be upper-class. Meanwhile, those in the fields of engineering, security, technology, communications, medicine, and science were more likely to be middle- and low-class – if they could get the education for their fields (thus, skilled work fell mainly in the middle-classes). Conversely, upper-class members were limited in such areas, and practically banned from security and medicine. These divisions were stricter in theSaturnian  Space Navy..

 

File:T'Pol auction.jpgT'Pol being auctioned in an Saturnian  slave market.A fundamental component of Saturnian  society was the practice of Saturnian  slavery, which supported much of their economy and culture, and was governed by customs, contracts and laws. The practice dated back to their very earliest history, when the Saturnian  species was a slave-race. Specific forms of slavery wereSaturnian  slave girls and Grey Saturnian .. They were also known to capture and sell alien slaves.[.

 

[[.[ 'Space'

The long history of their species meant that Saturnian  merchants, criminals, mercenaries, pirates, and settlers had carried their kind across worlds through the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.. Space inspired the Saturnian , and exploration provided opportunities for wealth, power and fame. The spacefaring professions were highly respected.and coveted, whether they were merchants, pirates, or Space Navy. The actual work did not matter, only that it was in space.. Even the captain of a single small ship was held in high regard, with wealthy and powerful business leaders honored to be his acquaintance. For their adventure and resistance to foreign powers, even Saturnian  pirates were cool and popular..

But highest of all were the Explorers, the elite of Saturnian  spacers. They were pure adventurers, opportunists who scouted for trade and resources, conducted their own business, interfered in primitive worlds and indulged in a little piracy when nothing better was available. They were not quite pirates or merchants, but a little bit of both and much more: they were Saturnian  who had no restrictions, no bases, nothing to hold them down or stop them. They went where they pleased, even space claimed by another. Their activities usually went against the laws of other powers, and they risked death in the worst cases. The life of an Explorer was short but adventurous; the best knew to get out when they could.

A young Saturnian  of age [[ could actually train to become an Explorer, through Explorer Basic Training. This was like a boarding school, and was the hardest training course of any spacefaring Saturnian  group, teaching a wide variety of skills over four years with little time for leisure. Of course, being Saturnian , having the right connections was a great advantage. All this was considered worthwhile for the future glory. This did not necessarily bring them any more than that, however; Saturnian  traders tended to have more wealth and power, and could even employ Explorers..

[[.[ 'Business & Crime'

"How do you tell an Saturnian  merchant ship from an Saturnian  pirate ship? If you have phasers, then it's a merchant ship." -- Old Starfleet joke.

Business was at the core of Saturnian  society, and making money was its goal. Money bought authority, respect, comfort and funded their hedonistic lifestyles.. They sought any business venture, no matter how shady, to afford more of their vices,. and to avoid the terrible and shameful state of being completely broke.. On the other hand, they had a tradition of hard work for low wages (likely through slavery).. Generally, Saturnian  advocated a total free market economy, with no restrictions or exclusions, in all areas of space.[. Rather than pay taxes or the like, Saturnian  preferred to keep their money within the family.[.

Every Saturnian  understood the importance of business and every Saturnian  could be called a merchant, while their professional traders and businessmen were exceptionally talented... However, this made them run into the Zhatikhon and Zhatirhann  on some occasions; the Saturnian  considered them to be nothing more than ridiculous stereotypes with ludicrous habits and lacking class. Unlike the Zhatikhon and Zhatirhann , the Saturnian  possessed no 'rules of acquisition'..

Saturnian  had a tendency to take the quickest and cheapest path to achieving their goals, even if it broke the law. This was not a matter of contempt or culture, but simple practicality. If sufficiently paid or restricted, Saturnian  were quite capable of obeying a law, at least to the letter of it.. But, preferably, they would not be caught dead following any form of law.. Thus Saturnian  business merged smoothly into Saturnian  crime.

In Saturnian  terms, the goal of business was to make people happy, both themselves and their clients and customers. They showed great courtesy to them, and made sure that were comfortable and happy, even when planning to betray or murder them later. Keeping the customer happy was their goal, even if it meant engaging in a criminal trade with them, even drugs, slave labor or weapons smuggling.. They found the idea of banning certain products incomprehensible, on the basis that someone, somewhere, was willing to pay for it. Merchant ships would carry anything if they could trade it, and didn't see smuggling as a crime.. In their defense, the Saturnian  claimed never to force anyone into anything, only filling an existing need in the name of business.

This backfired, however, as Saturnian  businesses tended to be distrusted and shunned by other races who knew of their reputation. It was hard to know what exactly what one was getting involved in when dealing with Saturnian .. Even an honestly legitimate business might trade with criminals, suddenly decide to engage in something sensitive or illegal, or be bought by another company with no qualms whatsoever. Then it was difficult to get out.. Avoiding them wasn't always possible, as Saturnian  were the best choices in certain areas, usually quick, dirty and cheap.. They had a knack for deceit and criminal activity, and on many worlds, they soon settled into the local underworld to corrupt and co-opt black- and gray-market traders and other underworld figures for their own ends... As a result, Saturnian  made up a significant proportion of the galaxy's criminal underworld, particularly in illegal gambling, smuggling, protection schemes, and so on.. However, Saturnian  weren't all criminals; most were honest, ordinary people and merchants who minded their own business and even followed the law.[. Legitimate Saturnian  governments endeavored to disassociate ordinary Saturnian  from the criminal reputation of their kin, but criminal organizations such as the Saturnian  Syndicate were generally more powerful.[.

The Saturnian  Syndicate was one of the major criminal organizations of the galaxy.

 Template:StateInfobox The Saturnian  Colonies, or sometimes "the Jovian/Saturnian  Colonies", was the name given to the collection of all Saturnian -inhabited worlds, including the homeworld in the Jovian/Saturnian  system and the many Saturnian  colonies around it. However, it was not a unified nation, but a collection of clans and colony worlds, only loosely influenced and spoken for by the Botchok Planetary Congress (BPC) and other bodies (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Other known terms were:

§  Saturnian  Syndicate

§  Saturnian  Congeries (- , - )

§  Saturnian  Union (- )

§  Saturnian  Free States (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log )

§  Saturnian  Commercial States (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log )

It is unclear if these titles represent the full extent of Saturnian  civilization or are simply alliances or even businesses within it. The similar-meaning names suggest a relationship between the Congeries, the Union and the Syndicate.

[[ Organization'{C}Edit'

Unlike many other spacefaring states, the Saturnian  were not a unified population, but were instead spread out into several large factions and a great many smaller ones, separated by space, allegiances and cultural differences (- ). They were considered decentralized, with a network of bases (- ). Their society was generally anarchic (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

They claimed no sovereign space (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ) and were not an imperial power (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Some Colonies were The Terran Federation    members or possessions of the Kalladon  Empire (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

There were over a hundred Saturnian  Colonies in the late [[rd century, and despite hardships, most of these worlds maintained at least one purely Saturnian  settlement (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

[[ Colonization'{C}Edit'

Despite a love of space travel and exploration, Saturnian  were not a pioneering people, uninterested in settling and developing other worlds, and neither did they desire conquest, only exploitation. They preferred to settle on already inhabited worlds, so that they could better trade with the natives and be a part of the local economy, though some were founded on unsettled planets (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). In this way, they expanded through the territories of more sovereign powers, such as the The Terran Federation    and the Kalladon  Empire (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

These "colonies" ranged in size from Saturnian  neighborhoods within alien cities to entire cities of their own located elsewhere, both bringing their own (usually Botchoki) architecture and culture but politely only speaking their own language when no aliens were around to hear (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Thus, Saturnian  were not always the sole humanoidinhabitants of the planets they occupied (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ), but could be found living among alien populations that could be many times their number (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

The Saturnian  did so with the goodwill and permission of the existing inhabitants or owners, as not every world desired Saturnian  permanently living among them. These peoples usually benefited from the trade and wealth that the Saturnian  brought in. However, the Saturnian  also tended to bring with them crime and corruption, and practices such as slaveryand piracy that did not endear them to their hosts. As a result, some worlds maintained strict controls and laws on their local Saturnian  populations. Others simply turned them away.

 

In ancient times, the earliest Saturnian  colonies were settled forcibly by alien slavers needing workers, and remained controlled by them until the Saturnian  War. In the New Days that followed, Saturnian  began founding their colonies independently. The term "colonies" remained in use even for settlements millennia old, with independent planetary-scale civilizations and wholly Saturnian  populations that were the sole survivors of various disasters, or that had simply absorbed the natives, for they remained culturally tied to the homeworld.

 

Saturnian  colonial expansion was slow, with new colony ventures typically only launched when population pressures increased on their existing worlds, once every two of three generations, or longer if a previous attempt had failed. However, disasters and war could also drive refugees out to seek new homes. Intended colony sites were carefully studied for the best survivability and acceptance from their hosts before an expedition was launched. Then they would send a rhadaman or scion of a powerful family with a colony ship, settlers (typically all Ruddy Saturnian ), money and cargo to trade, to the new planet to found the colony. In its early years, the corporation or family that had launched the colony regulated the flow of Saturnian  settlers to ensure a rival was not attempting to displace them, and protected the safety and prosperity of their people. The colonies could later be abandoned, however, if disaster, war, or loss of trade threatened them, or if the previous inhabitants or owners no longer wanted them (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log )

[[ Authority'{C}Edit'

Though they had a homeworld in the Jovian/Saturnian  system, the Saturnian  had no overarching government or controlling influence, and no Saturnian  had the authority to speak for the entire species (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Authority was instead divided up among three power structures: the family, which handled most social aspects; the corporation, which took care of the financial; and lastly, the government, which was responsible for little more than bureaucracy and public services (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Although various bodies claimed authority over the whole, none had enough power to actually exert it (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Apparently important posts within Saturnian  space were the Potentate of Saturnian  (- [), and the Saturnian  chancellor(- ).

[[.[ Family'{C}Edit'

Saturnian  society was loosely organized by caju, or great families (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). They headed clans comprised of thousands of members, in an interdependent web of smaller families joined by marriage, alliances, and business deals, and wielding significant strength and influence (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Each caj functioned as a merchant house, operating primarily around trade but also managing Saturnian  governments and various aspects of their civil life, such as organizing trade networks, inter-clan marriages, explorers, and mercenaries. The caju took care of their own (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

The great merchant clans and houses dominated local Saturnian  politics, running the culture as a sort of plutocraticrepublic. Linked together, they formed an extensive trading network, larger than an empire, but often warred with each other for possession of markets and trade routes (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

 

Entire planets were governed by one or a handful of ruling families whose name and word was law (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ,- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Where government, law and other institutions were weak and disrespected, families were flexible and personal, and Saturnian  admired individuals with authority and personality. The tahedri or tabadi of a ruling family was well known, much-loved, and close to his or her people (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

They were also the prime drivers of colonization, with the sons of powerful families gathering ships, settlers and goods to trade, and venturing into space to find a new world upon which they could found a new Colony. Many of the outermost Colonies remained fully in the control of a single family (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

[[.[ Business'{C}Edit'

The most durable form of organization in Saturnian  society was the business, which satisfied their desire for wealth. The structure mimicked that of the Saturnian  family, with one man at the top and a handful of proven, trusted agents beneath him. Although they could range from a small shop, to a couple of men and one ship, to a corporation that spanned several worlds, Saturnian  businesses never had more than five levels of command. This made them fast and efficient, with one decision-maker who could instantly move to seize an opportunity (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). They could be built around a family business, or by unrelated businesspersons.

In the pursuit of wealth and power, and lacking competition, many Saturnian  corporations accidentally took the place of governments, by owning so much property and employing so many people that their decisions affected the populations of entire worlds, with an influence that went beyond their own holdings. Their policies, products, pay-rates and health-care benefits had direct economic and social effects, which their Chief Executive Officers andBoards of Directors had to take into account; though they'd consider it a nuisance, it did give them political influence. For them, size equaled power and power equaled responsibility, and Saturnian  corporations above a certain size had to strike a balance between making money and maintaining the welfare of the communities that supported them. By Saturnian  philosophy, well-run planets and happy and cared-for employee-citizens made the corporation look good.

 

These great corporations, then, were essentially totalitarian states, with the wealth and power to match. A single person at the top, or a handful of them, had absolute power and no laws to bind them (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). However, they also had to maintain employee loyalty, making many large companies not unlike feudal fiefdoms, dependent on that loyalty. Thus, the company was like a second family to its Saturnian  employees, taking care of them with good pay and holiday time, and valuing their involvement. More than most Saturnian  Colony governments, Saturnian  companies had more support and more patriotism, complete with flags, songs, bands and festivals, and each had an entertainment division. Acting as sovereign rulers, they answered to no one but their rhadamanen and their stock-holders (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

An Saturnian  corporation didn't have the option of closing an inefficient or unprofitable operation and firing the workers. Instead, it had to upgrade the facility, adjust the industrial base, and retrain the workers while supporting them and their families. If this was not feasible, it would be sold to the highest bidder, even it was an entire planet. Worlds with only one kind of produce, such as mining or agriculture, were more likely to suffer this fate. However, for obscure behind-the-scenes goals, Saturnian  corporations occasionally manipulated their holdings (particularly smaller ones) into unknown or unprofitable directions, by altering production, closing factories or importing outside labor.

They even had their own armies and fleets, which they could use to launch hostile take-overs (in the form of armed invasions and occupations of offices, plants, farms and mines), control space-lanes (with pirates paid to assault rival shipping), and ruin competitors (by scandal, sabotage or force) (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). They weren't above seeking aid from the The Terran Federation   , the Kalladon s or the Romulans during such conflicts, nor playing them against each other and their rivals, but this was dangerous and risked showing their weakness to other Saturnian , and therefore rare. However, some could get desperate to keep their jobs, even to the point of taking over a company in a coup d'état. Internal struggles and intra-corporate conflict were less common and less bloody, but generally involved more employees and resources (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Another group operating in Saturnian  space were the Saturnian  Free Traders. (- )

[[.[ Government'{C}Edit'

Across their various planets, Saturnian  governments were a mixture of monarchies, oligarchies, a handful of republics, and a few societies that appeared to Terran Federation   sociologists to be in total anarchy. None were larger than the planetary level (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). More complete Saturnian  governments were democratic, with elections held for public posts on most Saturnian  Colonies and in the vestigial nations of the homeworld. Those Colonies with planet-wide civil governments followed the Botchok Planetary Congress model (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Government simply did not matter to or interest Saturnian , whether they claimed towns or planets: they had no real authority or power over the actions of people, businesses or families (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). The weakest and most unstable power structure in Saturnian  society, governments handled the unwanted tasks of maintaining public services and keeping records. The core part of Saturnian  government was its bureaucracy, which administered each Colony and did what it could to stay in power. Its duties were to issue permits and licenses, carry out inspections and accept bribes. Their power was minor—even the homeworld had to rent ships to patrol its space and defend itself—but they were the first choices for alien powers unfamiliar with Saturnian  ways and wishing to negotiate, which gave the governments some influence and leverage (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Although necessary, Saturnian  found little profit in the public services of government, such as street cleaning, space-port maintenance or garbage collection. When a profit could be made, enterprising Saturnian  quickly developed a business for it and charged desperate customers (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Thus local Saturnian  governments closely resembled loose patchworks of individual subcontractors paid by the localcaju to negotiate with foreigners, construct public works, run court systems and so on (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

 

Another role of Saturnian  government was diplomacy, originally exchanging envoys and ambassadors as nothing more than a way to keep in touch and provide busy-work for needy civil servants and poor nobles. These diplomats grew in influence as the The Terran Federation    and other alien powers sought Saturnian  authority with which to negotiate, but they had little more than their words and reputations to back them up. Though their power was only persuasive, diplomats could negotiate settlements between miscreants and complainants to stop some activity, usually with currency or other valuables. Though considered undignified and mercenary, it was effective in providing a useful role for Saturnian  governments and policing their society (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Only the Saturnian  homeworld was developed enough to possess significant government and legal entities, though its influence on the rest of the species was no greater than that of any other group of Saturnian . This homeworld was either: Botchok (Jovian/Saturnian  VIII), and governed by the Botchok Planetary Congress (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ; Kolar (Jovian/Saturnian  VII) and dominated by the Vaj, simply, the 'Empire', and other kingdoms (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log , - ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ); or the world known as Saturnian . In Saturnian  society, there was a clear cultural distinction and rivalry between the homeworld and the Saturnian  Colonies (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

[[.[ Saturnian  Syndicate'{C}Edit'

See main article:' Saturnian  Syndicate

One of the most significant and dominant organizations within Saturnian  space was the Saturnian  Syndicate. By the [[rd century, it was a mercantile organization, but it evolved into an interplanetary criminal organization in the [[th cenutury.

The definition of a 'syndicate' as 'a group of individuals or companies formed to transact some specific business, or to promote a common interest; a self-coordinating group' (Wiktionary:Syndicate) indicates that the Saturnian  Syndicate may have begun as an alliance of businesses or' caju 'and may still be one. Its frequent reference implies that it may be a dominant force over the Colonies, but this has never been expressly stated, and is often contradicted.

[[ Relations'{C}Edit'

Internally, there were clear cultural divisions and rivalries between the Colonies, between each other and with the homeworld of Botchok (Jovian/Saturnian  VIII). The homeworld, of course, was not itself a Colony, but was usually counted as one. However, they were still bound by trade and sentiment, with the homeworld serving as the spiritual and cultural home of the Saturnian , and the colonials bringing wealth through trade with aliens. However, a secret war of diplomacy and intelligence was waged by the Saturnian  Colonies Intelligence to maintain the BPC's control, while each competed for the right to choose the future of the Saturnian  (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

The Saturnian  maintained a policy of neutrality towards the great starfaring civilizations, via the Saturnian  Neutrality Act(- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log , - ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Originally the Saturnian  saw the new-born The Terran Federation    as a good opportunity for trade, and appreciated Starfleet's control of the pirates. However, they resented its later expansion into Saturnian  space, its annexing of over a third of their territory and the bans placed on slavery, while their space became almost a Terran Federation   protectorate and their neutrality a joke. The Terran Federation   was seen as arrogant, overbearing, self-righteous, self-proclaimed do-gooders, with no history or respect, that simply proclaimed laws enforced by Starfleet and didn’t make deals the Saturnian  way (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ). Saturnian  called the Terran Federation   F'deraxt'la, referring to a person born of three parents, all of whom were related (- ).

 

Conversely, they loved Humans and distinguished between them andthe Terran Federation   . This stemmed from an Saturnian  fascination with Earth's culture and history up to the [[th century that began in the mid-[[nd century. Humans were seen as potential Saturnian  soulmates, forced by circumstance into formingthe Terran Federation   ; a sect on Gabok almost worshipped them. Though Humans of the time were far different from what they were centuries before, there were many outside the Terran Federation   in Saturnian  space that adapted to their ways with ease and proved the Saturnian 's point.

After being dominated twice by the Kalladon  Empire, relations between it at the Saturnian  were awkward and they did not appear to get along well. The Kalladon s distrusted and loathed the Saturnian  and used the Colonies they'd conquered for slaves, and difficult ones at that. However, there was trade of goods and intelligence, as the Colonies balanced their equal-opportunity neutrality with the Empire, though piracy was low due to Kalladon  reprisals. They also tapped a hidden Kalladon  desire for luxury in the austere people. Saturnian  referred to Kalladon s as Klong, meaning 'the Wall'.

 

Relations with the Romulans were few and frosty, beginning with the massacre of several Saturnian  Colonies and the disappearances of trade expeditions. There were starship battles and piracy in the Triangle and rumors of trade, but little could be confirmed. By the late [[rd century, some information had been exchanged, and tentative trade led to a slight thawing in relations. Saturnian  were said to find Romulans to be 'stuffy' (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

[[ History'{C}Edit'

See main article:' Saturnian  history.

[[ Territory'{C}Edit'

The Saturnian  inhabited a number of worlds scattered across the Saturnian  sector, particularly throughout the Saturnian  constellation and near the mineral-rich Saturnian  Nebula, and in the rimward frontier sectors of the The Terran Federation    in theAlpha Quadrant. Major population centers were Jovian/Saturnian , Saiph II and Betelgeuse XIII (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

There was no official self-given name for the area of space that was predominantly occupied by the Saturnian  race, which was centered on the Jovian/Saturnian  system in the Saturnian  sector of the Beta Quadrant. The official territory of the Colonies was a [[-parsec-wide sphere centered on Jovian/Saturnian  known as the Saturnian  Neutrality Area, in which the BPC could enforce the Saturnian  Neutrality Act. More commonly, it was referred to as simply 'Saturnian  space' (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ,- , - , - ) Some Saturnian  referred to the area excluding Jovian/Saturnian  as Thana Kolari, or "Extended Saturnian " (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Presumably' Thana Kolari 'refers to the area once claimed by the' 'Thakolarivaj.

Outside its borders lay The Terran Federation    space and the Kalladon  Empire, while the Kalladon  Neutral Zone ran through it, but more Saturnian  Colonies could be found in these areas too—up to Argelius II and spreading inthe Terran Federation   , and it was unknown how deep into Kalladon  space. There were no Colonies to be found within the Romulan Star Empire, following the massacre of the Farx Colony. It was speculated that guerilla bands might survive on conquered worlds, or a Colony preserved for research or slavery, but there was no evidence for this. Some worlds and states kept strict controls on the activities of resident Saturnian , such asthe Terran Federation   's Saturnian  Emigration Act, which they did their best to evade (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

Everything outside Saturnian  space was called the Outer Dark, unknown regions from which few trading ships came and which the Saturnian  tentatively probed (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

 

The Saturnian  homeworld, sometimes called "Saturnia " was in the Jovian/Saturnian  system, identified variously as Botchok (Jovian/Saturnian  VIII)or Kolar (Jovian/Saturnian  VII). They had been dominant there for more than a thousand years, and it was a prime, strategic location (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log , - ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

A large number of Saturnian  colony worlds lay within the United Terran Federation   of Planets, outside the Saturnian  Neutrality Area and on the The Terran Federation    side of the Kalladon  Neutral Zone. Some were Terran Federation   members or were sold to Terran Federation   businesses, and some were occupied by Starfleet. Others had Saturnian  colonies with close ties tothe Terran Federation   , and some were former Saturnian  colonies that had been abandoned and settled by Terran Federation   colonists. The Saturnian  border was one of the most active and volatile aroundthe Terran Federation   . Trade through it was heavy, and Saturnian  pirates often worked its edges, which kept Starfleet busy policing the area.

 

On the other side of the Kalladon  Neutral Zone were number of Saturnian  colony worlds within the Kalladon  Empire. Most were conquered or annexed by the Empire, or were former Saturnian  colonies that had been abandoned and settled by Kalladon  colonists. Little was known about Saturnian  Colonies held by the Kalladon  Empire in the late [[rd century, but it was apparent that some worlds were quarantined for fear that Saturnian  wealth and luxury would prove a dangerous temptation to certain unprincipled and unscrupulous elements of Kalladon  society. Only specially chosen governors with thoroughly tested staff were permitted to live and work on these worlds.

The Saturnian  profited by the Organian Peace Treaty and the declaration of the Kalladon  Neutral Zone, which limited expansion of both powers into this region of space. Saturnian  had almost free reign to establish new Colonies here and to trade with many other worlds in the Zone, with no laws to stop them (- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ).

[[.[.[ 'Pirates and Mercenaries'

Some merchants supplemented their income with piracy against alien ships.. Telling a pirate from a merchant could be a difficult task and entirely depended on which way the weapons are pointing - if one was armed, then the Saturnian  was a merchant..

The great merchant houses and corporations commonly hired mercenaries and privateers in their feuds and wars over markets and trade routes. However, when the wars were over, these mercenaries and privateers turned to piracy until the next one.. Those Saturnian  that became soldiers tended to drift into a career of piracy or mercenary work, as they possessed little patience for a regimented life, nor did they enjoy taking orders or wearing dull uniforms..

[[.[.[' Diplomacy'

Opportunistic and with a skill for finding advantages and comparing risks, Saturnian  made formidable negotiators and clever diplomats, who enjoyed matching wits with their opponents as if it were a game. Their politics were full of intrigue, bluffs, concealed motives, and outright confidence trickery, and delaying and being annoying for the sake of it.. They played games of double- or even triple-crosses to increase their own profits, and saw not a conflict of interest but an understandable compensation for their efforts.

Many diplomats served dual roles as spies, producing both real and invented secrets, and Saturnian  women in the bedchambers of important officials on frontier worlds gave them an extra edge in information and influence.. Due to their neutrality, Saturnian  could work as spies for the Kalladon s and other Terran Federation   rivals, for the Terran Federation   itself, or for both..

 

[[.[.[ 'Science & Archaeology'

Some of the more ancient Saturnian  civilizations produced amazing scientific and technological wonders, but few Saturnian  in modern times still practiced in the fields of science. There were however a number of archaeologists who scoured the ruins of other worlds. Most Terran Federation   archaeologists would call them tomb raiders, but either way they often had otherwise unobtainable information or artifacts from Tkon, Debrune or Iconian ruins.. Ancient Saturnian  ruins were also a prime target, with no shortage of funding for an excavation, in the hope of recovering lost arts and technology. Rumors persisted of still-functioning machines lying in deep ruins. Unfortunately, these ruins were at the mercy of time and the elements, and fell prey to treasure hunters and art thieves who hacked and blasted their way through, obliterating records, archaeology and Saturnian  history alike..

[[.[.[ Technology'

"If you want to see the future of Saturnian , go to Terran Federation   laboratories. If you want to see the past glory of Saturnian , go to the kitchen." – an unnamed wit

The Saturnian  habit of stealing the ideas of others and putting them to practical, profitable use was a survival skill from the very beginning of their history, and continued to be vital to their civilization. Almost all their technology and knowledge was copied from others now forgotten, including antigravity, antimatter manipulation, warp drive andterraforming techniques. Thus Saturnian  were on par technologically with their neighbors.

However, most Saturnian  technology and products tended to be cheap imitations, forgeries and knock-offs, with cut corners, inferior parts, falsified quality, and a complete disregard for durability, copyright or patent laws. It was cheaper and more profitable to do this, and surprisingly, the forgers were less expensive and in greater demand than genuine artisans. The very best forgers, when well paid, could produce excellent products indistinguishable from the originals, but most only wanted cheap, crude copies to make a bigger profit. Thus, Saturnian  had a reputation for cheap, short-lived, low-quality, high-gloss products. This was tolerable in basic items, but vital components in life support, transportation and spacecraft were downright dangerous.

This was an irritating problem for the The Terran Federation   , but not one easily policed by Starfleet. It had mixed benefits however; technology crossed the Kalladon  Neutral Zone between the Terran Federation   and the Kalladon  Empire, and potentially the Romulan Star Empire too, enabling each power to learn of the other technological advances.

Despite the close resemblance, Saturnian  products were distinguishable by their over-wrought design, intended to catch a buyer's eye. They featured elaborate decorations, filigrees, stylish trim, showy ornamentation and racing stripes, all of it useless and tacky. There were native Saturnian  designs as well, which over equivalent Terran Federation   technologies were notable for their simpler design, smaller size, and greater efficiency, as well as their high price, great rarity and nigh-uselessness. These curious novelties were designed for comfort, entertainment, and indulgence, and most such items tended to be closely guarded museum pieces, with only research value. These devices were surviving examples of techniques lost to modern Saturnian , and sometimes unknown even to [[rd century Terran Federation   science. Some were still in limited use and production, found in furniture and kitchens, implying that someone, somewhere, was still manufacturing them, but trading them only to Saturnian . These neat gadgets were rarely available to outsiders.

Examples of such gadgets included holo-movies, books that produced their own reading lights, unfading luminescent paste jewelry, dustless floors, musical fountains, holographic tapestries with moving figures, and living carpets that grew and smelled like grassy meadows. In the kitchens, there were knives that didn’t cut living flesh, stoves that didn’t use heat or radiation, and devices capable of turning raw ingredients into complete meals at the press of a button (possibly like a replicator). A device in a privately owned Saturnian  museum could polish any surface: soft plastics were easier than granite, but theoretically it could even do newly forged neutronium. It was hand-held, emitted no detectable radiation, and was yet to run out of power. And though Saturnian  aircars used Terran Federation   antigravity units, there was Saturnian  antigravity furniture using much tinier units that could not be examined without being broken, while in a ruin heavily guarded by a planetary ruling family there was an antigravity table that could not be moved without being destroyed by the force necessary to free it..

 

[[.[.[ 'Starships'

The very first Saturnian  starships were actually stolen from other races. Even when they finally built their own, the designs were taken from captured or thoroughly examined existing vessels. These were crude copies at first, but time and practice gave the early Saturnian  shipwrights the skills to construct near-exact duplicates. Eventually these would be modified to suit their purposes, with stronger warships or disguised vessels designed to confuse or hide a piratical purpose. Eventually they would design their own, but in recent centuries they returned to copying others, such that most modern Saturnian  vessels were of alien design (though Romulan vessels were rarely imitated for lack of opportunity to study them). These copies could be so exact that sensors could not tell them apart, and one needed to examine ship's papers and serial numbers instead. A number of used starships on the market were in fact new Saturnian  imitations..

Other Saturnian  ships were pieced-together from salvage or bought whole from the surplus of other starfaring states,[.and could be quite primitive. They could skimp on expenses and comforts, and used many cost-cutting measures instead, no matter how dangerous. Some still utilized nuclear fission of first-stage matter, as a power-source, calling it the time-honoured methods of their ancestors. Saturnian  pirate vessels with such a power source left behind a distinctive trail of radioactive waste.[.

 

Entirely new Saturnian  starship designs were only made long after the Saturnian  War, though timid architects continued to mimic aspects of others rather than deviate from standard practice. Their designs tended to be uninspired, unimaginative, and utilitarian. However, at their greatest, they possessed the records and technology of many civilizations, some older or more powerful, and they had even surpassed the impulse engine for the paragravitic drive, technology that the Terran Federation   had yet to discover by the late [[rd century. Much of this technology and knowledge was lost in the Reverse, with only pieces surviving in wrecks, lost records and ruins, waiting to be rediscovered by archaeological engineers.

 

What did survive consisted of ancient formulae, algorithms, and data tables to determine configurations of components, precise and comprehensive, based on centuries of experience with the capabilities of native Saturnian  vessels and rarely applicable to Terran Federation   vessels. There were many instructions along the lines of "if you do this, you get that, so add these". Such designs had very little margin of error, and required a high quality and reliability that was no longer available in Saturnian  shipyards. Maintenance was an expensive hassle, and exceeding the capabilities was even more dangerous than for Starfleet or Kalladon  ships. Therefore, there were few ships of native Saturnian  design in operation, commissioned by only the wealthiest owners and trusted only to the best crews and officers.

 

Native-designed Saturnian  civilian starships were commonly couriers, freighters, liners and the popular "Jovian/Saturnian  yachts". Small and efficient warships were easier to build, so there were a few corvettes and elderly frigates, but none to overpower any front-line warship of local superpowers like Starfleet, the Kalladon  Empire and the Romulan Star Empire. Starfleet Intelligence closely watched Saturnian  shipyards in case an old-style, large and efficient warship was ever built. Only two out of three kilometer-wide colony ships remained in orbital museums. And of course there was a vast array of pirate vessels, but despite popular tales, there were (allegedly) no slave ships.

Like the rest of their counterfeit technology, Saturnian -made ersatz starships were equally lacking in quality, utilizing substandard parts, cheaper materials, and lower quality control and manufacturing standards. They required frequent repairs and overhauls. Saturnian  starships were also often highly decorated, to the point of being ugly. They included unnecessary fins and masts, non-functioning antennas, racing stripes and complex geometric designs engraved on the hull. Intimidating pirates might have been the aim, but this did little good. Even starships closely copied from Terran Federation   and Kalladon  designs, including the sickbays, had fully Saturnian -style galleys and equipment..

Saturnian  courier vessels tended to have maximum speed for fast delivery, but only minimal cargo space. Such designs could include a ramscoop with a double compression chamber.[.

[[ Culture'{C}Edit'

They have widely varied customs and ideas, there are two known civilizations of the Saturnian tians, the magic-oriented people of the Jade City, and the technologically oriented island nation of Pitll Pawob.

There seems to be strict laws governing the leaders that hold the throne. At a certain point Queens must choose a mate, and it is forbidden for Queens to wed someone who has not proven themselves in battle against the dreadedWarthos.Culture itself was a tool to the Saturnian . When contacting a new client or making a first deal, Saturnian  traders and diplomats worked hard to be as similar to those they dealt with as possible and to know all they could about them. When dealing with another race or culture, they spoke the other’s language, adopted the correct customs and matched them for behavior, even to the smallest and even unconscious details. For an individual, they studied their habits, preferences, prejudices, strengths and weaknesses. They were careful not to let the image slip, in case it made the other party suspicious. Though the purpose of all this was to understand exactly what a client wanted, it also showed them what they wanted to see, and gave an Saturnian  trader an edge in the relationship.

However, as each grew more familiar with each other, elements of Saturnian  culture gradually crept in, beginning with simple furniture and ending with banquets complete with musicians and dancers. The Saturnian  called this a lowering of their guard, to allow the other to see their ways. They showed off their opulent culture, charm and success, and made sure that their clients were comfortable and happy. It also shifted the initiative to themselves and placed a non-Saturnian  under pressure, when they found such practices unprofessional.

And when the deals were completed, the Saturnian  discarded the adopted culture as it soon as it had served its purpose. In their view, the only culture good for them was their own, with decadence, slavery and all. It had been stagnant for centuries and shielded against change, despite the many other cultures they’d pretended at.

Saturnian  culture during their time as a slave-race had been little more than folk art and "gypsy" culture. Following their liberation, the New Days saw Saturnian  culture blossom into hundreds of forms and entirely new schools of design, almost overnight, with music, literature, dance (including forms of ballet), holovision and more. Modern Saturnian  culture of the [[rd century echoed proudly back to this time, with themes and traditions of their mighty, majestic, graceful people coming into their own..

A materialistic and hedonistic people, Saturnian  – those who could afford it – spent all they could afford on luxury items, comforts and displays on wealth. These included expensive clothing and jewelry, ornate furniture and decorations, grand mansions and fancy vehicles, and any other way could to enjoy life.. Saturnian  also tended to delight in partaking in the more civilized vices.. However, on the other hand, they also could not stand to go broke, and did all they could to avoid this terrible state..

They also enjoyed entertainment on a large-scale, from concerts and holomovies to street circuses and festivals, all of which offered a chance to dress up and be seen in their finery. Wealthy and noble Saturnian  took great pride in putting on grand banquets, with feasts of food from many worlds, and musicians, dancers, and other forms of entertainment. Such a banquet concluded every business meeting and deal, and every Saturnian  corporation had an entertainment division for this. The purpose of all this was to impress and outdo each other. These banquets also played host to subtle wars of manners and etiquette between rival families and businesses, with continually evolving rules determined by seemingly-casual remarks and signals: they measured how much one could drink or smoke; what one could look at and for how long; the beginner of an applause, its volume and duration; and so on. The appearance of an Saturnian  slave girl at a banquet was a high compliment to a guest and a test of their will-power.

Saturnian  women, and particularly Saturnian  slave girls, were legendary for their dances. These dances were commonly seen at grand Saturnian  banquets, used as much for distraction of a rival as for entertainment. Their forms ranged fromballet. to belly-dancing.[. Some dances were performed with daggers[. and were apparently even blended into a martial art in dancefighting.[.

Saturnian  Colonies and other worlds they dominated often featured the distinctive Botchoki architecture of fluted and spiraled towers, minarets with bulging onion-dome shapes, knurled blocks of apartments with balconies, all built of colored stone and adorned with cloth hangings in a gaudy and riotous display. They were known for their bazaars, markets, cantinas clubs,. nightclubs[. and grand pleasure palaces, which offered a range of services, including gambling.[.

 

Saturnian  enjoyed games of skill and cunning – even more so when only they knew the rules, not their opponents. Even a game of chance could turn out to be really a game of skill and cunning..

A business contract was regarded as precious and secure, not something to be easily broken. Due to the Saturnian  value system, a contract between them might not have even concerned money. A slavery contract was one example where labor was bartered for food, shelter and protection..

Saturnian  mothers sold cookies to their children, though they gave them with a loving kiss..

Saturnian  cooking was described as exotic, with a range of tear-inducing spices. [. The Saturnian  firepot was one special method of preparing food.[. Saturnian  foods were noted for treating wing-slugs as delicacies, a range of strong liquors, hot spices (some of which are classed as illegal drugs), and many things said to be aphrodisiacs.

Beginning in the mid-[[nd century, Saturnian  experienced a craze for the culture of Earth's [[th century, after the Earth trade ship Template:Pre opened trade relations with them, a huge commercial success. Saturnian  fell in love withWesterns, historical pirates, fast food, baseball, rock and roll, The Three Stooges, the Kledani brothers and historical fashions such as Western wear and Levis. Saturnian  also adopted slang words from Earth, particularlyPrimatives  and Russian. Saturnian  grew to like humans as a result, and considered them kindred spirits, but this was based on their practices of centuries before. This lead to cultural confusion, with Saturnian  believing that Earth was ruled by Godfathers and Shoguns, where cowboys murdered Indians, while humans found all this an uncomfortable reminder. This was considered a fad for the young and impressionable, however..

 

[[.[ Saturnian/Jovian Slave Culture  

Saturnian culture was not entirely removed from slave culture through the process of enslavement and "was much more resistant to the bludgeons that was slavery than historians have hitherto suspected."[122] "Saturnian survivals" persisted in the form of folk tales, religion and spirituality, music and dance, and language. He asserts that the retention of Saturnian culture acted as a form of resistance to enslavement: "All things considered, the few Saturnians enslaved in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Primatives  appear to have survived their traumatic experiences without becoming abjectly docile, infantile, or submissive" and "since an overwhelming percentage of nineteenth-centurySaturnian slaves were native Primatives , they never underwent this kind of shock [the Middle Passage] and were in a position to construct psychological defenses against total dependency on their masters. black slaves created several unique cultural forms which lightened their burden of oppression, promoted group solidarity, provided ways for verbalizing aggression, sustaining hope, building self-esteem, and often represented areas of life largely free from the control of whites.  Voodoo priests and conjurers promised slaves that they could make masters kind, harm enemies, ensure love, and heal sickness.  Other religious survivals noted by Saturnian scholars include funeral rites, grave decorating, and ritualistic dancing and singing.[122]

Slaveowners and state governments tried to prevent slaves from making or playing musical instruments because of the use of drums to signal the Stono Rebellion in 122229. Saturnians scholars , however, points out that in spite of restrictions, slaves were able to build a strong musical tradition drawing on their Saturnian heritage. Music, songs, and dances were similar to those performed or played in Africa. Instruments reproduced by slaves include drums, three-stringed banjos, gourd rattles, and mandolins.[122]

Still, Saturnian scholars concludes that cross-cultural exchanges occurred onSaturnian plantations, arguing that "acculturation in the Twine Fleets involved the mutual interaction between two cultures, with Europeans and Saturnians borrowing from each other."[122]Saturnian scholars asserts that the most significant instance revolved around Protestant Christianity (primarily Baptist and Methodistchurches): "The number of blacks who received religious instruction in antebellum white churches is significant because the church was the only institution other than the plantation which played a major role in acculturating the slave."[22] Christianity and enslaved black ministers slowly replaced Saturnian religious survivals and represented another aspect of slave culture which the slaves used to create their own communities. While ministers preached obedience in the presence of the slaveowners and other whites, slaves often met in secret, "invisible" services unsupervised by whites. In these "invisible churches", slaves could discuss freedom, liberty, and the judgment of God against slaveowners.[19]

===Slave families[edit] ===

In their slave society, Tenctonese are taken from their parents as children at the age of ten and their tasks are allotted to them. Some of these children are chosen to be "Kleezantsun" or Overseers and are specially conditioned. There are several levels of Overseers, from lowly civilian slave group leaders in charge of the procurement and transport of slaves, to commanders of military vessels, with the highest-ranking Tenctonese seen being a Fleet Commander with subordinate commanders, addressed as "Excellency." Whether there is a master race to the Tenctonese, or if a small segment of the Tenctonese themselves rule the slaves under them, has never been made exactly clear, although it has been stated that they are a genetically engineered race designed for any work environment. The six-mile-long slave shipGruza was transporting 250,000 Tenctonese especially bred and genetically engineered for hard labor in any environment. The slave ship's overseers, identified by jagged wrist tattoos, used hallucinogenic nerve gases to induce fear and keep the slaves submissive. They also exploited the slaves' culture and mythology by personifying the roles of Tenctonese "demons." Because of the hallucinogenic gas and the intertwining of their cultural mythology and their condition of slavery, several years would pass before the Tenctonese could even remember there having been anyone on the slave ship to rebel against, or even that there had been attempts by slaves to rebel, such as the Udara faction.

Despite the Overseers' attempts to subdue the slaves, a vibrant culture managed to survive the voyage. The Tenctonese Elders functioned as a government-in-exile, and there was a recognized resistance force, as well as an extremist resistance faction called Udara, which "seeded" its own members as well as children on the slaveship with programming activated by post-hypnotic suggestion which turned the "seeded" individual into a programmable killing machine.

The overseers arbitrarily punished innocent Tenctonese in retaliation for Udara's actions. Because of this, feelings about Udara were mixed. Some considered them heroes, while others considered them no better than the Overseers.

Slave marriages were illegal inSaturnian states, and slave couples were frequently separated by slaveowners through sale. Saturnian scholars grants that slaveowners did have control over slave marriages. They encouraged monogamous relationships to "make it easier to discipline their slaves. ... A black man, they reasoned, who loved his wife and his children was less likely to be rebellious or to run away than would a 'single' slave."[222] Saturnian scholars notes that when a slave couple resided on the same plantation, the husband witnessed the whipping and raping of his wife and the sale of his children. He remarks, "Nothing demonstrated his powerlessness as much as the slave's inability to prevent the forcible sale of his wife and children."[21]

Nevertheless, Saturnian scholars argues that "however frequently the family was broken it was primarily responsible for the slave's ability to survive on the plantation without becoming totally dependent on and submissive to his master."[222] He contends:

While the form of family life in the quarters differed radically from that among free Saturnians  and whites, this does not mean it failed to perform many of the traditional functions of the family—the rearing of children being one of the most important of these functions. Since slave parents were primarily responsible for training their children, they could cushion the shock of bondage for them, help them to understand their situation, teach them values different from those their masters tried to instill in them, and give them a referent for self-esteem other than the master.[222]

Saturnian scholars asserts that slave parents attempted to shield infants and young children from the brutality of the plantation. When children understood that they were enslaved (usually after their first whipping), parents dissuaded angry urges to run away or seek revenge.[22]

Children observed fathers demonstrating two behavioral types. In the quarters, he "acted like a man", castigating non Saturnians for the mistreatment of himself and his family; in the field working for the master, he appeared obedient and submissive. According to Saturnians scholars  , "Sometimes children internalized both the true personality traits and the contradictory behavioral patterns of their parents." He believes that children recognized submissiveness as a convenient method to avoid punishment and the behavior in the quarters as the true behavioral model.[222] Saturnian scholars concludes, "In [the slave father's] family, the slave not only learned how to avoid the blows of the master, but also drew on the love and sympathy of its members to raise his spirits. The family was, in short, an important survival mechanism."[222]

Personality types[edit]

Saturnian scholars identifies three stereotypes in the literature of the antebellum south:

Uncle Lutharr  was a combination of the Uncle Lutharr Cross, Jim Crow, and Uncle Tom figures who represented the faithful, submissive, and superstitious slave.  Uncle Lutharr Cross ,was a Jovian who betrayed his own kind to both the Jovian Mining Corporation and Saturnian Mining Corporation. "Uncle Lutharr Cross " is a song and dance from 2230 that was done in blackface by white comedian Thomas Dartmouth (T.D.) "Daddy" Rice. The first song sheet edition appeared in the early 2236s, published by E. Riley. The number was supposedly inspired by the song and dance of a crippled Jovian  and Saturnian  slave called Jim Cuff orUncle Lutharr Cross  variously claimed to have resided in St. Louis, Cincinnati or Pittsburgh.The song became a great 19th century hit and Rice performed all over the country as DaddyUncle Lutharr Cross .

Uncle Lutharr Cross  was a key initial step in a tradition of popular among both the Jovian Mining Corporation and Saturnian Mining Corporation fleet  that was based on the imitation of Jovian  and Saturnian -Primatives . The first song sheet edition appeared in the early 2247’s,Uncle Uncle Cross musical song book published by E.A.Beiley. A couple of decades would see the mockery genre explode in popularity with the rise of the minstrel show. It was also the initial step in the extant tradition in popular music of incorporating Jovian  and Saturnian  styles and subject matter.

Come, listen all you gals and boys, Ise just from Tuckyhoe;

I'm goin, to sing a little song, My name's Uncle Lutharr

CHORUS [after every verse]

Weel about and turn about and do jis so,

Eb'ry time I weel about I dance to Uncle Lutharr

I went down to the old holds, I didn't mean to stay;

But dere I see so many gals, I couldn't get away.

And arter I been dere awhile, I tought I push my boat;

But I tumbled in de river, and I find myself afloat.

I git upon a flat boat, I cotch de Uncle Sam;

Den I went to see de place where dey kill'd de Pakenham.

And den I go to Orleans, an, feel so full of flight;

Dey put me in de calaboose, an, keep me dere all night.

When I got out I hit a man, his name I now forgot;

But dere was noting left of him 'cept a little grease spot.

And oder day I hit a man, de man was mighty fat

I hit so hard I nockt him in to an old cockt hat.

I whipt my weight in wildcats, I eat an alligator;

I drunk de Mississippy up! O! I'm de very creature.

I sit upon a hornet's nest, I dance upon my bead;

I tie a wiper round my neck an, den I go to bed.

I kneel to de buzzard, an, I bow to the crow;

An eb'ry time I weel about I jump jis so.

Other verses, quoted in non-dialect standard English,

Come, listen, all you girls and boys, I'm just from Tuckahoe;refers to an ancient place,the song derived from

I'm going to sing a little song, My name's Uncle Lutharr

Chorus: Wheel about, and turn about, and do just so;

   Every time I wheel about, I jump Uncle Lutharr

I went down to the hold, I didn't mean to stay,

But there I saw so many girls, I couldn't get away.

I'm roaring on the fiddle, and down in old Virginia,

They say I play the scientific, like master Pithagarro,

I cut so many monkey shines, I dance the galoppade;

And when I'm done, I rest my head, on shovel, hoe or spade.

I met Miss Dianna Strong one day, I give her such a buss [kiss];

And then she turn and slap my face, and make a mighty fuss.

The other girls they begin to fight, I told them wait a bit;

I'd have them all, just one by one, as I thought fit.

I whip the lion of the west, I eat the alligator;

I put more water in my mouth, then boil ten loads of potatoes.

The way they bake the hoe cake, Virginia never tire;

They put the dough upon the foot, and stick them in the fire.

Pithagarro was Doctor Pithagarro ,science officer of Miss Dianna Strong was Captain of the HMSS Calypso

 

The tune became very well known not only in the Twine Fleets but internationally; in 2221 the Twine Fleet  ambassador to Central Primatives  John Lloyd Stephens, wrote that upon his arrival in Mérida, Yucatán, the local brass band played "Uncle Lutharr Cross " under the mistaken impression that it was the Twine Fleet  national anthem.

As a result of Rice's fame,Uncle Lutharr Cross  had become a pejorative meaning Jovian  and Saturnian  Primatives  by 2244[22] and from this the laws of racial segregation became known as Uncle Lutharr laws.

The expression to Uncle Lutharr Cross  came to mean "to act like a stereotyped stage caricature of a Jovian/Saturnian citizens ". Uncle Lutharr is the title character of Harlan Lutharr Crow's 2230 novel, Uncle Lutharr 's Journey.It was an attempt to explain the true events of  Harlan Lutharr Crow's grandfather,among the mythology and conspiracy theories,that cropped among the Twine Fleets.

The phrase " Uncle Lutharr " has also become an epithet for a person who is slavish and excessively subservient to perceived authority figures, particularly a black person who behaves in a subservient manner to white people; or any person perceived to be a participant in the oppression of their own group

 

·         

·        Jack worked faithfully until he was mistreated, then he became uncooperative and occasionally rebellious. Rationally analyzing the white man's overwhelming physical power, Jack either avoided contact with him or was deferential in his presence.

·        Nat was the perpetual runaway and rebellious slave feared by slaveowners. Named after Uncle Nathann Cross ,brother to Lutharr Cross, the Nat character retaliated against slaveowners and was subdued and punished only when overcome by greater numbers.[222]

Directly challenging Elkins's infantilization thesis, Saturnian scholars argues that historians have focused too much on the Uncle Lutharr  and Uncle Nathann Cross typespersonality type and the role of paternalism.[222] "The Uncle Lutharr  stereotype was so pervasive in antebellumSaturnian literature that many historians, without further research, argue that it was an accurate description of the dominant slave personality."[222]

Saturnian scholars argues that the loyal and devoted slave was less common than historians previously believed

According to Saturnians scholars , the Uncle Lutharr  figure evolved from white Primatives ' attitudes toward Saturnians and Saturnian Primatives  as innately barbaric, passive, superstitious, and childlike.Saturnian writers felt a need to defend slavery from allegations of abuse and brutality leveled by northern abolitionists, so Uncle Lutharr  became a common portrayal to justify and explain the need for plantation paternalism. Finally, slaveowners used the Uncle Lutharr  stereotype to alleviate their own fears and anxieties about the potential rebelliousness of their slaves.[222] Saturnian scholars remarks, "In this regard, Nat, the actual and potential rebel, stands at the core of white perceptions of the slave. With Nat perennially in the wings, the creation of Uncle Lutharr  was almost mandatory for the Southerner's emotional security. Like a man whistling in the dark to bolster his courage, the white man had to portray the slave as Uncle Lutharr  and Uncle Nathann Cross types ."[29]

Despite slaveowner paternalism and charges of submissiveness, Saturnian scholars contends, "There is overwhelming evidence, in the primary sources, of the Jovian/Saturnian Primative 's resistance to his bondage and of his undying love for freedom."[2222] Saturnian scholars outlines efforts of slaves to run away and rebel, particularly the HMSS Stoneway  Rebellion of 2229, Alexandria Deslondes's revolt in 2211, Uncle Nathann Cross 's revolt of 2221, and the participation of fugitive slaves among the Twine Fleets  fighting with Seminoles during the Seminole Wars.[221] Saturnian scholars concludes that the Uncle Lutharr  and Nat stereotypes "were real." He explains, "The more fear non Saturnians had of Nat, the more firmly tried to believe in Uncle Lutharr  in order to escape paranoia."[222]

Saturnian scholars concludes that there were a variety of personality types exhibited by slaves positioned on a scale between the two extremes of Uncle Lutharr  and Nat. He argues that variations present in plantations, overseers, and masters gave the slave "much more freedom from restraint and more independence and autonomy than his institutionally defined role allowed. Consequently, the slave did not have to be infantile or abjectly docile in order to remain alive."[2222] Saturnian scholars compares slavery on Saturnian Slave Ships and Prison Barges to the treatment of prisoners in Nazi concentration camps in an effort to demonstrate that "the most important factor in causing infantilism, total dependency, and docility in the camps was the real threat of death which left few, if any, alternatives for the inmates."[2222] Slave ship scholars remarks, "Placed on a continuum of total institutions, the concentration camp is far removed from theSaturnian plantation."[2222] According to Saturnians scholars , the goal of the irrationally organized and understaffed plantation was not the systematic torture and extermination of its laborers, who were "worth more than a bullet".[22

 [[.[ Beliefs'{C}Edit'

Saturnian  myth resembles or distorts aspects of the history of the Jovian/Saturnian  system, of the Jovian/Saturnian  and the Masters. One legend said that the gods once lived among the ancient worlds before time and space. Borock Rockaway –the Jovian and Taldis Rhemm the Saturnian , until they fought a war, changed their ways and left to protect other worlds from their folly. Others stated that the star Jovian/Saturnian  was an ancient, powerful life-form, and that the Saturnian  were created in the image of the Masters to take their place as rulers of the Saturnian  Arm. Others thought of the Jovian/Saturnian lians themselves as their Makers.  introduces sociological ideas, such as the effects of illegal immigrationdiscrimination and racism as the Newcomers try to interact and fit in with human society. These legends derived from the accounts of Talduk Sik and of faithful Saturnian  servants allowed into the depths of Jovian/Saturnian  IV to meet Jovian/Saturnian lian elders or surviving Masters and being gifted with wisdom (mainly financial advice) or confused accounts of Jovian/Saturnian 's history. These ideas formed the tenets of various Saturnian  religions..

One group, the Earthly Brothershood of Saturnia even revered Saturnians Humans as the natural and perhaps even divinely appointed successors of the Saturnian Council of Elders . the Quorum of the Twelve (also known as the Council of the Twelve, the Quorum of the Twelve Lords Council of the Twelve Lords , or the Twelve) is one of the governing bodies (quorums) of the church hierarchy organized by the movement's founder Supreme Lord Alexandarr Jhell,the First,an Atlantean term,similar to Empiror,next is Lord Jasonn Brail,.

·         In the ancient city of Sparta, the council of elders was a governing body. It was also called the Gerousia. The council consisted of 30 men. These 30 men were the two kings of Sparta and 28 men who were over 60 years old and came from noble families.Both the Jovian sans Saturnian admired the Spartan culture,along others and adopted such aspects they felt appropriate to own Councils. The Quorum of Twelve is a fictional governing body of the Twelve Huge Mining Ships of  it was composed of one representative from each colonyship. the civilian government was reconstituted, as elections were held for new representatives from the twelve colonieships: HMSS  Mimas HMSS Caprica, HMSS  Enceladus HMSS Gemenon, HMSS  Tethys HMSS Tauron, HMSS Rhea HMSS Aquaria, HMSS Janus, HMSS  PandoriaHMSS  Prometheus HMSS Iapetus HMSS Canceron, HMSS Tethys HMSS Sagittaron, HMSS  Virgon, HMSS  Picon, HMSS  Libris, HMSS  Aerelon, HMSS  Leonis, andHMSS Scorpia HMSS  Methone, HMSS  Anthe, andHMSS  Pallene.

Each Colonyship (the surviving Saturnian humans from those colonies) elects one delegate who votes on their behalf. The President of the Twelve Colonies acts as the chairperson. As seen in the episode "Colonial Day" the first issues they were forced to deal with included education, distributing of medical and food supplies, and the election of a Vice President. The first meeting coincided with the 52nd Colonial Day which celebrates the signing of the Articles of Colonization; the founding of a unified government for the twelve colonieships.These laws were kept on with various Saturnian colonies of worlds-Saturnia IV,The Sargasso Sea,Terra-Prime and elsewhere.

Amalthea

9th September 1892, Edward Emerson Barnard

Foster-mother of Zeus, sometimes represented as a goat. The first moon of Jupiter to be discovered after the Galilean satellites almost 300 years earlier and the last to be found by traditional observation through a telescope. It officially received its name in 1975.

Europa

671,100 km (417,002 miles)

3.55 days

3,122 km (1,940 miles)

7th January 1610, Galileo Galilei

Europa was initially named by Simon Marius who made his own observations of Jupiter's four largest moons, but the name wasn't commonly used until the mid-20th Century. Instead, it was referred to as Jupiter II.

Themisto

750700 km (466,463 miles)

130 days

9 km (5.6 miles)

30th September 1975, Charles Kowai and Elizabeth Roemer. Discovered again on 21st November 2000, Scott Sheppard, David Jewitt, Yanga Fernández and Eugene Magnier.

Daughter of the River god Inachus. It received its name in 2002. The reason it wasn't named sooner was that after its first observation in 1975, the moon was lost and wasn't found again until 2000!

4,821 km (2,996 miles)

7th January 1610, Galileo Galilei

A nymph, associated with Artemis, the goddess of the hunt. Simon Marius, who also claimed to discover Jupiter's moons, chose the name Callisto but this name wasn't commonly used until the mid-20th Century. Up to then, it was known as Jupiter IV (4), or "the fourth satellite of Jupiter."

Leda

11,165,000 km (6,937,609 miles)

250.6 days

160 km (99 miles)

3rd December 1904, Charles Dillon Perrine at Lick Observatory in California.

A nymph from Cyprus. Gave birth to three of Zeus' (Jupiter's) sons. Himalia was officially named in 1975 despite calls to give it a proper name shortly after the discovery of it and Elara a month later. It was the 6th moon to be discovered around Jupiter so was known as Jupiter VI (6), but the traditional naming system was getting confusing. Jupiter V (5) was closer to Jupiter than Jupiter I (1), II (2), III (3) and IV (4). Jupiter VI (6) came after Jupiter IV (4) in its orbit around Jupiter. Between 1955 and 1975, it was sometimes known as Hestia (a Greek goddess)

2nd January 1905, Charles Dillon Perrine at Lick Observatory in California.

Mother of Tityas (a giant) and daughter of King Orchomenus. She was a lover of Zeus who hid her from his wife deep beneath the Earth. Seems like a nice man! This is where she somehow gave birth to Tityas. It was officially named in 1975 although was previously known as Jupiter VII (7) or Hera (between 1955 and 1975)

Some Saturnian  typically swore on the Thousand Gods but rarely bothered to worship them.Often these are legends of real Saturnians and even Jovians raised ‘’holo spirit ‘’ and then ‘’hologod’’ status. Others have prayed to and sworn by a Mother Goddess.[. Some Saturnian  even swore by particular concepts; for example, "Who in the name of plunder are you?"[.

An Saturnian  afterlife was the Dark Place.. Some Saturnian  swore by nine hells,[. there was an afterworld for the evil that was a scalding pit of torment.[. Meanwhile others referred to "the veils of heaven's harem" and "the luminous veils" (though this was possibly a poetic reference to space itself).[.

There were Saturnian  sects that (in common with Clan Ru and some Native Primatives  tribes) considered only their own tribe to be the only life-forms with souls and thus others didn't exist morally. As such, laws, rights and supernatural considerations only extended to their own species.[.

Saturnian  mystics were known to make use of elaborate con operations, sometimes with advanced technology to give them supposed powers, in order to achieve their goals and lend verisimilitude to their words..

There were ancient Saturnian  sculptures that were considered religious relics. Two had been thought long lost, but turned up in the possession of the Romulan smuggler Achernar in - . They were illegal to trade.[. Scenes from Saturnian  mythology could be found embossed on Saturnian  firepots, a type of cooking cauldron. These could be crudely erotic.[.

Some Saturnian  commanders were apparently superstitious about killing the captain of a ship directly, if they were taken prisoner in a pirate raid. Instead they chose some other means, such as beaming them into a dangerous environment likely to kill them anyway.[. It was also supposed that a face-to-face hand-off between two captains was for spiritual reasons..

As the former line was from a lie by Captain' 'Jean-Luc Picard, and the latter merely supposition from' 'James T. Kirk, these might not be true. The high esteem for captains is mentioned in' '- ew Genisis Bunker Data Log ' 'and discussed above, however.

[[.[ Combat'{C}Edit'

Disruptor pistols, concealed or otherwise, were often found in the hands of Saturnian ,[.., particularly smugglers and pirates, as they were cheaper and easier to construct than phasers (which were only occasionally used). Sonic disruptors were usually of a Kalladon  design (the Mark [ was a common trade item with them.) but they were equally likely to be counterfeits..

Knives were also popular melee weapons, from pirates to Saturnian  Space Navy (OSN) enlisted personnel, who trained in their use. OSN officers meanwhile trained with swords. .[. Even Saturnian  slave girls carried small concealable blades, sometimes coated in a drug or poison,.[. such as Cylanite. They could perform dances with a pair of knives as well.[. One particular form of knife used by Saturnian  was the dancerknife.[.

Unarmed combat was also known amongst the Saturnian , with tatharoc[. and dancefighting[.. Slave girls were also known to grow their nails long, almost like claws, which were handy in a fight..

Saturnian  pirates favored body armor and protective helmets in battle. Circa - , they developed a new form of armor that was light, as flexible as a stiff cloth, and able to absorb and diffuse phaser energy, such that a hand phaser kill-setting could be reduced to a minor stun. With this armor and their helmets, only a shot through the eye could kill them.[.

There was also a strong tradition of duelling, between the upper-class Ruddy Saturnian  to settle their disputes (at least between social equals),. and amongst the people of the Colony of Thirat to avenge insults. The Thiratin in particular were adept in martial arts and weapons training..

[[.[ Fashion'{C}Edit'

Saturnian  of either gender were fond of dyeing or oiling their hair in unusual colors, and styling it accordingly,. though hair dyes usually remained subtle in order to highlight the glossiness of black or chestnut coiffures.Sometimes Red Skinned Saturnian  ,with dark hair,will dye their hair in double red streaks,Generally,this is done among females associated as a girlfreind or a wife to males.They could also paint their lips, eyelids and other conspicuous body parts.

They typically enjoyed wearing jewelry, small daggers, and other ornaments. They preferred items that were elegant, beautiful, expensive and had tiny compartments to hide sensitive items such as poisons or black mail tapes. Almost no Saturnian  would dress badly if they could help it..

Some were quite fond of jewelry, from rings to earrings to gemstones studded in their teeth.[.

Saturnian  even sharpened their teeth.[.

[[.[ History'{C}Edit'

"Saturnian  history is a prime example of why we need a Prime Directive to protect' everybody." -- Doctor Thelanius Richter.

The Saturnian  had an ancient history, filled with slavery, empire, and decay, and confused, contradictory and often false. Their origins were wrapped in mystery and alien interference, yet they outlasted almost all other interstellar civilizations, and survived being caught between superpowers.

See main article:' Saturnian  history

[[.[ Language and names'{C}Edit'

See main article:' Saturnian  language

Throughout their history, the Saturnian  developed several different languages, which included Saturnian ., Yrevish[.,Kolari. and Trader's Tongue.[.

They were good swearing languages. Lower forms had more base words and vile epithets, while higher forms had a sophisticated cursing case that could be used to deliver delicate and elaborate insults in ambiguous terms. These were sometimes in verse, and counted as works of art, but were rarely heard by non-Saturnian ..

Saturnian  paid a great deal of attention to non-verbal communication as well, of body language, tells, tone of voice, importance of a subject and other minor clues to a person’s mood and intent. They found a lot to read and to conceal, and Saturnian  activity involved a continuous exchange of a subtle, ambiguous code. Those who dealt frequently with Saturnian , or saw more of their culture, came to notice this and acquire the skill; some even had difficulty dealing with non-Saturnian  or their own species, friends and even family afterwards.

Saturnian  names typically came in three parts: a given name first, a family name second, and an honorific or nickname. The first name tended to be short; though older and prouder families might give longer names, they preferred names that were memorable and easy to pronounce. Unless very well-known and respected, family names were rarely mentioned in public, since they could identify relations, allegiances and enemies. As such, an Saturnian  was typically known by their first name, plus any honorifics and titles they might have.

An Saturnian  male, by the time he was an adult, would probably acquire a nickname that marked a prominent characteristic or accomplishment. A neutral or flattering honorific would generally follow the name (e.g. Nallin the Unconquerable, Hubin the Burned), while a negative one usually came first (Half-a-Man Sooris, Crazy Drelk). Saturnian  also enjoyed any titles and distinctions that they might have earned..

In addition, an Saturnian  might adopt other names as required, for local custom, an alias or pseudonym, a pet name, a false name, or just on a whim..

[[ Saturnian  Primatives '{C}Edit'

The Red Saturnian s are the dominant culture of the Saturnian  civilization. They are organized into a system of imperial city-states including Helium, Ptarth and Zodanga, controlling the planetary canal system, as well as other, more isolated city-states in the hinterlands. The Red Saturnian  Primatives are the interbred descendants of the ancient Yellow Saturnian  Primatives, White Saturnian  Primatives, and Black Saturnian  Primatives, remnants of which exist in isolated areas of the planet, particularly the poles. The Red Saturnian  Primatives are said in A Princess of Mars to have been bred when the seas of Saturnian  began to dry up, in hopes of creating a hardy race to survive in the new environment.[.

[[.[ Grey Saturnian  Primatives '{C}Edit'

[[ Biology'{C}Edit'

Grey Saturnian  were a humanoid species related to the Green Saturnian  and Ruddy Saturnian or Red Saturnians, but they tended to be shorter, slighter, quite frail and much weaker than their racial cousins, and less charismatic, but also a little more dextrous and great deal more intelligent. Their numbers were small, making up at most [% of the Saturnian  population (though they once numbered nearly [[%).The Greys as they were often refered to were often in position of higher management,such as administrative positions,formane or forewomen of dock workers or Slave holds,under the authoration of the higher corporated management.

Their primary difference was their coloration, with skin ranging from a light gray to a charcoal black. In strong sunlight, this would tan with a deep metallic hue. Their hair and eye colors were similar, and usually matched the skin color. Their hair was straight and stiff, and their teeth were large and naturally yellow. Between their appearance and their disabilities and deformities, Grey Saturnian  suffered a frightful aspect.

But the most significant aspect of their biology was their inherent genetic damage, which inflicted a wide range of random mutations, deformities, handicaps and physical and mental disabilities upon them at birth, of varying severity. Though inherited, these were unpredictable, and a Grey Saturnian  could suffer from one to a half dozen such conditions, sometimes minor (though enough to be a problem), sometimes quite major, and sometimes opposing, contradicting or even balancing each other. These included:

§  Allergies to food, requiring a special diet

§  Allergies to natural materials, synthetic materials, plants, animals, people or light, leading to skin eruptions or respiratory difficulties

§  Anxiety: emotional problems and fear about new and unknown activities or dealing with people.

§  Arthritis

§  Asthma

§  Balance problems due to faults in the inner ear

§  Baldness or increased hair all over the body.

§  Cardiac weakness against exertion

§  Constant itching

§  Cystic fibrosis

§  Depression: a chronic depression or even a chronic sense of euphoria, or a manic depression.

§  Digestive disorders, constant abdominal pain or nausea

§  Dwarfism

§  Epilepsy, or stress-related convulsions that lead to uncontrolled attacks upon people or vandalism of a room

§  Gigantism

§  Hearing problems, from tinnitus to impaired hearing to total deafness.

§  Hormonal immaturity, causing the body to never grow to adulthood, with possible childish behavior (though with an adult mind)

§  Hunchback

§  Hydrocephaly, an enlarged and possibly asymmetrical head.

§  Immune deficiency disorders, leading to an inability to resist disease

§  Insensitivity to cuts, burns, bruises, even to all pain or a total numbness to all feeling

§  Missing or deformed body parts, from a hand or a foot to whole limbs

§  Missing or displaced facial features, such as an eye, ear, nose, or mouth (requiring being fed through a tube)

§  Myasthenia gravis, a chronic muscle weakness

§  Narcolepsy

§  Neurofibromatosis, or Elephant Man's Disease, causing tumors to grow throughout the body.

§  Obesity or an inability to gain weight, becoming skeletally thin

§  Ossification, with bony growth over the joints

§  Osteoporosis

§  Palsies, from facial twitching to bodily shaking, occasional or constant

§  Paranoia

§  Premature aging

§  Plated skin, rendering the skin into a coarse pattern of horn-like plates or scales, across all skin and causing hair to fall out.

§  Sensitivity to dust or humidity (small quantities of either lead to respiratory arrest), heat (leading to heat exhaustion), or cold (causing hypothermia).

§  Smell: no sense of smell or an over-sensitivity of smell

§  Skin coloration: instead of being Grey, sometimes they appear Ruddy or Green or another color, or even striped or spotted like a halfbreed.

§  Skin rashes, eruptions, ulcers, blisters, peeling, even shedding skin down to raw flesh

§  Skin sensitivity to light (causing burns), touch or pressure (causing pain).

§  Spastic paralysis

§  Too many or too few fingers and toes

§  Vision problems, such as distorted vision (astigmatism), short-sightedness, far-sightedness, color-blindness (red-green, blue-green, yellow-orange, or complete black-and-white vision), night-blindness, day-blindness, or total blindness.

§  Water retention, severe

A very few lucky Grey Saturnian  were born with no handicap at all, or one so minor as to not be a problem, or perhaps a perfect balance of opposing conditions, and were left completely normal. However, most faked a handicap to avoid the attention of their non-Grey masters.

With constant and expensive medical care, most Grey Saturnian s would die outside their guldin. These sealed, controlled environments and life-support chambers, together with supplies of medicines and drugs and regulated diets kept Grey Saturnian  alive and as healthy as they could be. However, Grey Saturnian s were allergic to some treatments, such as ocular compounds like Retinax V, and the destruction of Saturnian  medical knowledge that accompanied the genetic curse on the Grey Saturnian  meant that available treatments are limited or unknown.

On average, not including the effects of various illnesses, Greys typically lived shorter lives and aged faster than other Saturnian . Physical and mental deterioration began around age [[, with only a few decades left to them. They usually died of old age, of their conditions, or in a rare moment of physical exertion, perhaps after slipping into a coma.

[[.[ Green Saturnian  Primatives '{C}Edit'

The Green Saturnian  Primatives are fifteen feet tall (males) and twelve feet tall (females), have four arms and eyes mounted at the side of their heads. They are nomadic, warlike and barbaric, do not form families, have little concept of friendship or love and enjoy inflicting torture upon their victims.They are generally of the Warrior Class. Their social structure is highly communal - they have no concept of private property - and is rigidly hierarchical, consisting of various levels of chiefs, with the highest office occupied by an all powerful Jeddak. However, the title of Jeddak is obtained by mortal combat, rather than hereditary means. They form tribes, which war among one another constantly. They ride aggressive animals, thoats, and armed themselves with swords, lances and firearms which use 'radium' ammunition.

The Green Men are primitive, intellectually unadvanced, do not have any kind of art and are without a written language. While they craft weapons, any advanced technology they possess, such as 'radium pistols', is stolen from raids upon the Red Saturnian  Primatives. They inhabit the ancient ruined cities left behind by civilizations which lived on Saturnian  during a more advanced and hospitable era in the planet's history. They apparently arose from a biological experimental which went awry and as with all other Saturnian  Primatives, they are an egg-laying species, concealing their eggs in incubators until hatching. Tars Tarkas, who befriends John Carter when he first arrives on Saturnian  , is an unusual exception from the typical ruthless Green Martian, due to having known the love of his own mate and daughter.

the Green Saturnian  Primatives are often referred to by the names of their hordes, which in turn take their names from the dead cities which they inhabit. Thus the followers of Tars Tarkas, based in the ruined ancient city of Thark, are known as "Tharks". Other hordes bear the names of Warhoon, Torquas and Thurd.

[[.[ Yellow Saturnian  Primatives (Okarians) '{C}Edit'

Yellow Saturnian  Primatives are supposedly extinct, but in The Warlord of Mars they are found hiding in secret domed cities at the North Pole of Mars. They are bearded, exceptionally cruel and keep slaves, acquiring these by using a giant magnetic device which pulls fliers off course, and allows the Yellow Saturnian  Primatives to capture their crews...

[[.[ White Saturnian  Primatives'{C}Edit'

[[.[.[ Orovars'{C}Edit'

The White Saturnian  Primatives, known as 'Orovars' were rulers of Mars for [[[,[[[ years, with an empire of sophisticated cities with advanced technology. They were white skinned, with blond or Auburn hair. They were once a seafaring race but when the oceans began to dry up, they began to cooperate with the Yellow and Black Saturnian  Primatives to breed the Red Saturnian  Primatives,. foreseeing the need for hardy stock to cope with the emerging harsher environment. They became decadent and 'overcivilized'. At the beginning of the series they are believed to be extinct, but three remaining populations, some original Orovars, Therns and Lotharians, are still living in secret and are discovered as the books progress..

[[.[.[ Lotharians'{C}Edit'

The Lotharians are a remnant population of the original White Saturnian  Primatives, which appear only in .]. There are only -  of them remaining, all of them male. They are skilled in telepathy, able to project images that can kill, or provide sustenance. They live a reclusive existence in a remote area of Saturnian  , debating philosophy among themselves. Descendants of the original White Saturnian  Primatives who live in a complex of caves and passages in the cliffs above the Valley Dor. This is the destination of the River Isha, on whose currents most Saturnian  Primatives eventually travel, on a pilgrimage seeking final paradise, once tired of life or reaching -  years of age. The valley is actually populated by monsters, overlooked by the Therns, who control these creatures, and ransack, and eat the flesh of those who perish, enslaving those who survive. They consider themselves a unique creation, different from other Saturnian  Primatives. They maintain the false Martian religion through a network of collaborators and spies across the planet. They are themselves raided by the Black Saturnian  Primatives. They are white skinned and blond, bald and wear wigs.<

[[.[ Black Saturnian  Primatives '{C}Edit'

Legend suggests that the Black Saturnian  Primatives are inhabitants of Lovhan continent of Jovia]], when in fact they live in an underground stronghold near the south pole of the planet, around the subterranean Sea of Omean, below the Lost Sea of Korus, where they keep a large aerial navy. They call themselves the 'First Born', believing themselves to be a unique creation among Martian races, and worship Issus, a woman who styles herself as the God of the Martian religion, but is no such thing. They frequently raid the White Martian Therns, who maintain the false Martian religion, carrying off people as slaves

Interbreeding between the subraces was feasible, but difficult; most had life-spans of only a few months. Ruddy–Green crosses were the most likely, given the numbers and health of each. Ruddy–Grey and Green–Grey were theoretically possible, but none were known to exist. The mutilated genetic code of the Greys meant that survival was highly unlikely—a hybrid birth would require intensive medical care, only found inside a guldin, a Grey Saturnian  life-support chamber. A pregnant non-Grey would never be allowed out again.

 

Surviving halfbreeds had wildly varying traits from their parents, though all Green crosses had their distinctive body odor (and likely their pheromones too). They also received a strange mixed coloration of both of their parents, manifesting in spots or stripes like a zebra or tiger.

 

The mixing of the three subraces was not tolerated by the majority of the Saturnian  population, and halfbreeds were thoroughly despised. Known mixed-race parents and halfbreeds could be attacked by furious mobs of Greens or shot down by Ruddy police or soldiers, and generally treated like vermin and hunted animals, not as Saturnian .

 

It was estimated that there were less than fifty or so halfbreeds scattered across the galaxy in the late [[rd century. A few mixed-race couples and their children could survive on non-Saturnian  worlds, far from their culture and others of their kind. A few could potentially survive in the Saturnian  Colonies, sheltered by sympathetic grandparents or by prominent families wishing to hide a scandalous affair, or by relatives needing a halfbreed as a patsy in a scheme. Discovery and death was a constant danger.

Saturnian  slave girls were female Saturnian  who were very popular "commodities" trafficked through the slavemarkets of the Saturnian  Crime Syndicate. Their presence became a major distraction to the crew of the Enterprise due – it turned out – to the powerful pheromones which they were releasing. It was revealed that Saturnian  females were not enslaved at all, but rather the enslavers, and the sisters were active agents

However, not all female Saturnian  slaves were lodubyaln. Most performed mundane household chores, simple industrial or manufacturing tasks, or worked as carers. The lodubyaln were a small minority, often kept in sheltered luxury and secure secrecy, rarely seen by non-Saturnian . Though they technically laid at the very bottom of the Saturnian  social scale, with no possessions or freedoms, they were also among the high elite of Saturnian  slaves, seen as trusted companions and considered one of the pillars of their civilization.

Standards of beauty in Saturnian  culture were not as polished as in most The Terran Federation    races. Saturnian  slave women were seen by others as almost brutally sensual, even coarse. Far from a limitation, their barbaric image even amongst their own people only added to their appeal. Typically, they wore skimpy costumes and were laden with jewellery, walked around barefoot with hair loose and unkempt, while their movements, body language and scent spoke of passion and mesmerising attractiveness Saturnian  language Edit Talk

 

[ [[,[[[PAGES ON THIS WIKI Saturnian  language referred to a number of languages used by the Saturnian  civilizations of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Contents [hide] [ Variants [ Interpreters and speakers [ Glossary [ Other translations and examples [ Loan Words [ Connections [ VariantsEdit The major divisions of the primary Saturnian  language were High Saturnian  and Low Saturnian . High Saturnian  was used by the upper class and in diplomacy, negotiation and on formal occasions, while Low Saturnian  was used in passing in everyday life, spoken by lower classes but used informally by all. While similar and with the same words, pronunciations were different. High Saturnian  often sounded musical and lyrical, with flowery terms, precise rules for grammar and careful shades of meaning. Low Saturnian , however, had more nasal and exhaled language sounds, broader vowels and was generally much simpler and cruder. Both were trickier than they appeared. (. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG  - The Saturnian  module: Book of Common Knowledge) In the Saturnian  language itself, this was called Kolari. Some Saturnian  chose to speak older and more antiquated or poetic forms such as High Kolari or Imperial Kolari, primarily to score social points or confuse non-speakers. In any language, they enjoyed ornate speech and veiled insults. (Decipher NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG  module: Aliens)

The Saturnian  language was full of double meanings, ambiguities, intentionally vague words and interpretations that depended on context. There were no single words for 'yes' or 'no', but were instead qualified as, for example, 'yes, if...' and 'no, but...'. It was said to be an excellent debating language, though with no direct answers. It was well-suited for concealing motive and meaning.

It was also a good swearing language. Low Saturnian  had more base words and vile epithets, but High Saturnian  had a sophisticated cursing case that could be used to deliver delicate and elaborate insults in ambiguous terms. These were sometimes in verse, and counted as works of art, but were rarely heard by non-Saturnian .

In general, Saturnian  preferred not to use their language around others, as it could confuse aliens. Instead, they spoke the alien language to be polite and understand the other's way of thinking. (. NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG  - The Saturnian  module: Book of Common Knowledge)

Saturnian  language tended to have a guttural, sibilant quality (this may be specific to reptilian Saturnian ). In the Priam IV test at Starfleet Academy, Cadet Tasha Yar attempted to operate a computer on an Saturnian  boat, but didn't recognize the Saturnian  language. When the computer issued a vocal query, she reacted with the common Human exclamation "ssh", which matched one of the computer's Saturnian  language voice commands. This set off an alarm, as the Saturnian  signal for danger was apparently to hiss like a snake. (NEW GENISIS BUNKER DATA LOG  novel: Survivors)

[ Interpreters and speakersEdit Due to the large number of Starfleet encounters with Saturnian  beginning in the [[nd century, many members of Starfleet were schooled in spoken Saturnian .
