Vissians

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Vissians1
Quadrant : Beta

A species first encountered by Humanity in 2152, the Vissians were much more advanced technologically than Humanity of this period, but tended to be much slower in their rate of progress. Although largely Humanoid in appearence, the Vissians are distinguishable by two large ridges around the eyes. Vissians have three genders; the normal male and female genders and a 'cogenitor' intermediate. Cogenitors make up about 3% of the Vissian population, which is just sufficient in terms of their availability to assist in procreation. Vissian culture treats the cogenitors as second class citizens; they are not named and have no access to education or any interests outside of their biological role. Despite this, the cogenitors have just as much mental ability as the males and females.1

Vissians culture had other significant differences beyond their treatment of the cogenitors. The appreciated the aroma of food far more than the taste. When developing a romantic relationship, a Vissian woman would share her bed with a man early in the relationship; she would only dine with him if she enjoyed sleeping with him.1

The Vissians developed warp drive some time prior to 1152, but although they had developed significant advances in warp technology, their ships had largely stayed relatively close to their own planets.1
