Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Kriosians1
Quadrant : Beta

Beta quadrant civilization2 The Kriosians made first contact with Humanity in 2152, when the NX-01 became involved in the kidnapping of a Kriosian Princess, Kaitaama, who was heir to the First Monarch of their world. Commander Tucker was able to free Princess Kaitaama from captivity, and with the aid of the NX-01 she was eventually returned to her people.3

The Kriosians went to war with their neighbours in the Vault Minor system centuries ago after the leaders of the two systems had a falling out over an empathic metamorph. Empathic metamorphs are a somewhat common phenomenon amongst Kriosian males; they are able to sense what a particular potential mate wants from a partner and become that for them. Female empathic metamorphs are much rarer, being born only once every seven generations, and as a result are highly prized.1

Krios was under the control of the Klingon Empire in the 24th century.4 In 2367 the Klingons believed that a Kriosian revolt had been assisted by the Federation, and a diplomatic incident was threatened. It transpired that the Romulans had faked evidence in order to put a strain on the Federation-Klingon alliance, and the incident was resolved peacefully.1

In 2368 the Enterprise-D returned to Krios to stage a ceremony of reconciliation to end the war with Vault. The ceremony involved the presentation of Kamala, a female empathic metamorph, to the Vault leader as a gift. Although Captain Picard and his officers were less than happy with transporting a sentient being as property, Kamala assured him that she was happy to take part in the exchange. Both had second thoughts when Picard began to feel attracted to Kamala, and she to he, but Kamala decided to go through with the exchange regardless.1
