While they are allied with the Federation not much is known about their past. How and why they adopted bioengineering on such a wide spread scale is still a mystery. What is known is that they have been long time allies of the Pelians and the Bactricans who are in the next system. This has included trade and military support against the numerous alien invasions that they have all had to suffer. Most notably from the Tzenkethi.
The first formal contact between the Azziz and the Federation came in 2354 on Pelios Station. Based on certain conversations between the "Poet" and the Federation Ambassador at this time it appears as if their humanoid appearance may not be their natural or original state. Certain experts have wondered if they altered their appearance to make them more acceptable around other alien species.
The members of their government have been bioengineered to perform these jobs. The top members or council of 9 have never been seen by off-worlders.
They have silvery blue skin tones, with white spots on their faces that indicate what their function in life is. They are completely hairless and have a metal silver colored skull cap that protects their head. This has been permanently attached to their skull. They appear to be humanoids, tall, slim, fit and attractive.
As with most intelligent humanoid species they have a very complex system with specialized organs, unique hormones, chemicals and enzymes. However in their case it is obvious that they have bioengineered their own bodies to make them better than they originally were. This includes altering themselves so that each member of their society is ideally suited to one particular job. Also they all eat a prepared nutritional supplement that has very little taste but is a excellent source of all the required daily nutrients.
They tend to be calm, relaxed and able to mimic all emotional expressions. They also seem to have trouble understanding humor. Other than this they seem to be completely free from any mental ailments or problems.
They do not seem to have any religious beliefs. In fact they have shown confusion when other species have tried to explain it to them.
They have no myths or legends of their own. They also have shown no interest in any other species in regards to this subject.
They have an extremely organized society where every one has been bioengineered to perform one specific job. Crime is unknown, poverty is unknown and everyone has access to any and all the resources they may need. Even their cities are extremely well laid out, clean, quiet and with many bioengineered amenities.
For some reason as a species they tend to have no ability to understand or appreciate any of the arts. So far none of the various art forms they have been exposed to seem to have any affect on them or even been able to spark any interest.
This is one of those areas where they have no concept of what it is. They do not seem to have any of their own and for the most part do not show any interest in any other species customs except where it impacts on their ability to meet and have meaningful discussions.
They are greatly admired for their remarkable bioengineering and biosynthesis abilities. In fact they are one of the leading authorities when it comes to this subject. in all other areas they fall behind the Federation.
They are mostly self sufficient but do have long standing traded deals with the Pelians and the Bactricans who are in the next system. Now however they have also established some trade deals with the Federation.
While they are primarily a peaceful species they have had to defend themselves in the past. As a result they have developed some very remarkable ships that are state of the art in bioengineering. These ships are essentially living beings, proof positive that the Azziz are masters of biosynthesis.
These ships live for one purpose, to defend the Azziz and anyone the Azziz tell them to defend. As a result they will and have been known to take risks that normal sentient beings would never even consider. These ships are on average 1/4 of the size of equivalent warships belonging to other species. This is primarily due to the fact that they do not need space for crew or other humanoid required needs. On the whole they tend to be less dangerous than equivalent ships belonging to species like the Federation, Klingons, Cardassians and Romulans.

The first formal contact between the Azziz and the Federation came in 2354 on Pelios Station. This first contact ended tragically when "the Poet," the member of the Azziz who was able to verbally communicate, was accidentally killed aboard the station. It was later revealed that the Azziz ship and crew were in fact all interdependent biological units, all of which relied on the Poet to keep them in harmony.
Both Memory Alpha and Memory Beta were used as well as the DS9 short story: The Music Between the Notes.
