History

The Mizarians have had a very peaceful, some might almost say dull history of slow development and gradual advancement. They have no recorded instances of any kind of aggressive anti-social activity anywhere on their world.

This remained true until they were invaded and conquered. This was the beginning of a 300 year period during which they were invaded and conquered by a series of 6 different species. During this time they as a species never once did anything that might be considered aggressive and merely did as they were told.

Eventually this came to an end and other than some noticeable advances in technology that was forced on them by different masters at different times they seemed to have weathered the turmoil with surprising efficiency.

Currently the Mizar system is generally considered to now be neutral territory.

Government

With a firm belief in pacifism, they have been conquered six times in three hundred years. They have no political alignments with any other government or alliance of species.

They have a council of elected officials that fluctuates in size and is made up of well-educated and proven individuals who have problem solving skills and a knack for co-operative efficiency.

Description

Humanoid in appearance but with whitish facial skin sharply folded along vertical lines. They have a grey wrinkled complexion and no body hair, they generally wear light grey or tan robes in public.

Physiology

As with most intelligent humanoid species they have a very complex system with specialized organs, and unique hormones, chemicals and enzymes. They are typical humanoids with most of the physical, mental and biological medical problems that seem to plague most humanoids.

Strawberries acted as a mild narcotic in Mizarians.

Psychology

Mizarians value peaceful non-resistance over confrontation; because of this reputation, they were conquered six times in a matter of three centuries. The Mizarians have survived these invasions by offering absolutely no resistance.

Religion

They believe that peace and peaceful non-resistance will ensure the development of the soul and allow it to transcend their physical forms and eventually become one with the universe around them.

Mythology

While they do have a large collection of tales and stories they tend to be rather dull and monotonous when read by most other species. They lack any excitement, thrill or heroic motivation.

Society

They are a law abiding, peaceful people who work together well. They keep their cities clean and while they may not be as well designed or equipped with infrastructure, utilities, recreational facilities or supporting amenities as other species, they tend to have a very bland, sanitary look to them.

Culture

They enjoy many types of artistic expression but for the most part all of it seems somehow lacking. Their music is somber, regulated with no fire, no spark and the same can be said of their other forms of art as well. All of it seems more suited to meditation and contemplation.

Customs

One of the truly unusual customs that they have is called the Walk of Acceptance. In this a young individual walks down a long line of 100 individuals. He stops at each one, professes his acceptance of their way of life before he accepts a short whip from that person. Then he uses the whip to strike his own back before returning it. This act is mostly symbolic as they seldom inflict any real injury to themselves and in most cases it results only in some mild bruising.

Technology

While clearly not as advanced as many of the species around them they also have not shown any interest in trading for any new technologies. They also do not seem to be interested in any opportunities to join in various research projects conducted by other species.

Economy

They have a number of trade partners but are cautious as well about who they enter into business with. For the most part they can be self-sufficient when need be, such as during the Dominion War when they canceled all trade deals and shut down as much ship movement between their system and other systems as possible.

Military

Due to the fact that they extremely pacifists they have never had any military forces of any kind. They do not even employ any form of police as they have never needed them either.

Federation Intelligence Files

Mizarians were one of the many species that attended the biennial Trade Agreements Conference held on Betazed in 2366.

A Mizarian was a customer in a bar on Torman V, when Jean-Luc Picard, Beverly Crusher and Worf were undercover on the planet in 2369.

A Mizarian was aboard the USS Enterprise-D shortly before it was destroyed.

Mizarians valued peaceful non-resistance and because of this, were conquered six times between the mid-21st century and the 2360s.

The Klingon Empire refused any governmental relations with the Mizarian people because of their extreme pacifistic views.

At least one Mizarian served aboard the USS Enterprise-D in 2371.

Monument of Surrender

The Monument of Surrender is a large statue that was present on the homeworld of the Mizarian species, which showcased their complete belief in peace without conflict. This was because the Mizarians never fought their invaders and were simply conquered until the conquerors departed.

Kova Tholl

Kova Tholl was a Mizarian public servant who enjoyed private meditation and was considered one of the brightest of his race. He claimed that the Mizarians are a species known for possessing superior intelligence.

He was a pacifist who knew of no one who could bear malice against his race or himself personally. He boasted of his intelligence and considered himself to be neither important enough to be held for ransom nor radical enough to be considered a threat.

In 2366, he was abducted, along with Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Esoqq and Mitena Haro, by a hitherto unknown species for use in a covert experiment to study their different attitudes towards authority.

Kleissu

Kleissu was a male Mizarian scientist, noted for his efforts to formulate a unified theory of the nature of the universe.

In the late 2370s, his theories were discovered by B'Ekara, a Klingon scientist at the Klingon Science Institute. However, because of the Klingon Empire's policies toward the pacifistic Mizarians, B'Ekara was fired for referencing his work, and the continuation of her research banned. Both Kleissu and B'Ekara later joined the Matter of Everything (or HapHoch) to continue their work.

Ravosus

Ravosus was a male Mizarian Starfleet paramedic serving aboard the USS Aventine by 2381.

During the Borg Invasion of 2381, the Aventine attacked and captured a Borg scout, securing its vinculum so that former Earth Starfleet Captain Erika Hernandez, now fused with Caeliar catoms, could interface with it and pose as the Borg Queen to halt the invasion. Ravosus was aboard the scout craft to monitor Hernandez's vital signs and provide medical attention as necessary.

The Queen, however, transferred her presence to the scout craft, and used the vessel itself to attack the small Starfleet team, including psychologically assaulting Captain Hernandez. Aventine Chief Engineer Mikaela Leishman and Ravosus struggled to lift and carry her out, following Gruhn Helkara towards one of their transporter beam-out points setup with pattern enhancers. The Queen reshaped the ship around them as they attempted to flee, preventing their escape; Ravosus was cut off from the others and killed.
