Morg / Eymorg

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Morg / Eymorg1
Quadrant : Alpha

The planet Sigma Draconis VI once boasted an advanced society, but at some time in the past the planet entered a glacial stage. An underground complex was constructed, but for some reason this came to be inhabited only by the females of the species while the males continued to live on the surface. Both groups lost all knowledge or understanding of their situation, forgetting their past entirely. The men, who came to call themselves Morg, reverted to stone age technology. The women, or Eymorg, continued to live within the technologically sophisticated underground complex, but lost all understanding of it. The complex was run by a computer system which was based on a Humanoid brain. This device controlled every aspect of the complex, but since it was based on organic components it had a limited life span and needed replacing every so often.

To facilitate this the Eymorg used a device called the Teacher. This temporarily implanted advanced knowledge and skills into an individual, allowing them to understand and use their other technology. Under the influence of the Teacher an Eymorg incapacitated the crew of the USS Enterprise and removed Commander Spock's brain from his body for use in the control system. Kirk was able to track the Eymorg to Sigma Draconis VI, but the Eymorg were extremely reluctant to return the brian to him. They used a variety of methods to control both the Morg and the Enterprise officers, including belts which caused intense pain at the touch of a button. Eventually Kirk was able to overcome the Eymorg and recover the brain, and using the Teacher Doctor McCoy was able to restore it to its body.

Kirk convinced the Eymorg that they should learn to coexist with the Morg and that both should fend for themselves without depending on their technology.1
