In 2369, the Miradorn twins Ah-Kel and Ro-Kel raided a Vanoben transport with their Miradorn raider just two light years from Deep Space 9. Shortly thereafter, they appeared at Quark's attempting to sell the Ferengi the stolen item; a valuable, ornate egg metal sphere. In a botched robbery attempt masterminded by Quark, a Rakhari fugitive, named Croden, killed Ro-Kel. In retaliation, Ah-Kel vowed to avenge his brother's death, his only purpose now left in life, but died trying.

In 2373, prior to the outbreak of the Dominion War, the Miradorn signed a nonaggression pact with the Dominion.


They have an assembly which is made up of the most powerful individuals within their society. This group will vary in size as sets of twins either gain or lose power.


The Miradorn are a humanoid species, which have distinctive foreheads divided into two hemispheres. They have a high hairline over the face but with a severe widow's peak of hair. For the most part they tend to be stocky, with a heavy bulk of muscle. They also tend to be tall with a normal range of 5'10 to 6'2 being the norm.

Little is known about them except that they are born in telepathically linked sets of identical twins that are considered to be two halves of one being. Kind of a symbiotic relationship. If one of the twins is injured or killed, the other will relentlessly seek vengeance for what he perceives as an assault against him. Otherwise if one twin dies, the other twin will anguish in the loss of "self". A "quarrelsome people," according to Quark.


They are a sturdy race with well muscled, stocky bodies. Their chest cavity has an additional protection in a series of plates that overlap of tough fiberous matter that is a blending of bone and muscle. They also tend to have denser, thicker bones than other species.

Their heart is larger than one would expect but this is mostly due to the extra amount of muscle tissue that it is made up of.


Partially due to the fact that every set of identical twins are linked mentally they have a very close tie to their sibling. The loss of this sibling can and does result in increased aggression, anger, rage, depression, hate, violence, suicide and dispondency. Regardless of this most of the species tends to be aggressive.


They seldom ever discuse their beliefs with outsiders. However over the years it has been determined that they believe that the 2 stars are the homes of the twin gods Mi-dorn and Ra-dorn.


They have a number of legends regarding the lengths to which a twin has gone to seek revenge for the death of there identical sibleing.


They tend to have a rather aggressive nature and this is reflected within their society. Fighting is an accepted means of resolveing a disagreement. Among themselves they very seldom resort to useing weapons. For that matter fighting is also considered a normal way to enjoy a night at the pub.


They do not have much use for any visual art forms as they consider them a stupid waste of funds. However they do enjoy various types of music. Klingon opera has become the new fad among their musical tastes.


The most used and recognized custom is the right to determine the outcome of a disagreement by physical combat between 2 sets of identical twins. The winners of the fight being considered the ones who are right and thus they win the disagreement.


While they fall behind both the Cardassian and the Federation in technology they make up for it with large ships with excellent shields, deflective armour and massive weapons arrays. These ships have fewer crewmembers than one would expect due to all the heavy shielding and thicker hulls and bulkheads.


They tend to trade with just about anyone. As a rule they will make an appearance of obeying the laws of foreign powers but in the end if they believe they can get away with it and make a profit anything goes.


They have a strong military with the emphasis on large ships. This is one of the reasons the Cardassians never fought a war with them. Too much trouble with very little to gain if they did win.
