Planet of Origin: Orion, in the Orion Sector of the Milky Way
Orions are a sentient humanoid species wich looks outrageously like humans with a green or blue skin. Orion males are typically bald and, on average, taller and more muscular than an average Human male. In Orion society, the males are slaves to the females. However, to outsiders, they maintain the façade to the contrary. Orion females are very animalistic in nature and have highly potent pheromones which accelerate the metabolisms of males of many species, raising adrenaline production to dangerous levels which, ultimately, cans cause delusions and make victims susceptible to suggestion. The pheromones' effects are cumulative; the longer exposed, the more pronounced are the results. Females of other species react negatively to those same pheromones. Vulcans are immune to their effects.
The planet Orion was once a highly advanced civilization which seems to have fallen to a state of semi-barbarism. Little is known about the organization of the Orion government, or if indeed a central government exists. Orions maintain a facade of neutrality in their relations with other species neutrality but this has proven to be more of a guise than a reality, and was often used to cover shady operations. The first known Orion contact with Humans was made with Arik Soong during the 2130s. Most contacts take place on Verex III and the Orion colony, which are well-known trade centers. The primary entity operating within these confines was known as the Orion Syndicate, comprised of a conglomeration of traders, pirates and smugglers.
