First Appearance: "CARETAKER"
Physical Attributes: Humanoid, red skin and prominent forehead ridges.
The Kazon shared a homeworld with the Trabe, who oppressed and persecuted them until the Kazon revolted 26 years before Stardate 49005.3. Jal Sankur united the Kazon sects to overthrow the Trabe.
Before the uprising, the Trabe were known as a highly evolved species; they produced scholars and artists who were widely admired, and their technology was among the finest in the Delta Quadrant; their treatment of the Kazon was not widely known, since they controlled information on their world.
All the ships the Kazon use were stolen from the Trabe. After being driven off their homeworld, the Trabe became nomads, moving in caravans across space trying to avoid the Kazon.
The Kazon Collective is fractured into hostile sects, including the
Kazon-Ogla, Kazon-Nistrim, Kazon-Oglamar, Kazon-Mostral, Kazon-Relora, Kazon-Hobii, and Kazon-Pommar.
Among the Kazon Collective, transporter and replicator technology is unknown.
The Borg designation for the Kazon is Species 329. The Borg encountered a Kazon colony in the Gan Sector, Grid 6920. The Kazon's biological and technological distinctiveness was unremarkable; they were unworthy of assimilation.
