Benzites

NotesImagesDatapoints
TimelinePeople
Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Benzites1
Quadrant : Beta

Also known as Benzenites,2 these humanoids are inhabitants of the planet Benzar.1 Benzites live underground in large geostructures, and all Benzites from the same geostructure look so identical that even they cannot say how they tell each other apart.1 Benzites at one time had to wear a breathing aid when in a standard Oxygen-Nitrogen atmosphere,3 but by 2372 medical advances had rendered this device obsolete.4 Benzites took part in the Starfleet officer exchange program of the early 2360's. Ensign Mendon served on board the Enterprise-D, where he helped to solve the problem presented by a subatomic life form which threatened the ship.3 Several Benzites made notable contributions to the Federation, including Mordock, creator of the Mordock Strategy. In 2364 he was the the first Benzite to join Starfleet Academy, edging out several Federation candidates.1
