A slightly feline-like humanoid race that must rely on a small breathing apparatus if they are in Class-M normal environments, the Barzans were a race that lived on a resource poor world, were politically neutral, and hadn’t started space-travel. Then the Barzan wormhole was discovered and thought to be a stable wormhole to the Delta Quadrant. Although the wormhole’s exit in the Delta Quadrant was proven unstable during the bidding for rights to the wormhole, it brought a decent amount of attention from the scientific community, and the rights to the wormhole were sold to the Chrysalians.

Barzans have become very adept at making use of what little they have, and most train in some craft in childhood that benefits their society as a whole. When the Chrysalian influx of money came into the Barzan economy, the government decided that it was time to enter galactic trade, and a slow but steady market has since formed around the Barzan sector, mostly for Barzan crafted items.

Another influx of activity was that of the scientific community. Regardless of the Barzan Wormhole’s unstable end in the Delta Quadrant, it was remarkably stable in the Alpha Quadrant for years [until some Ferengi in the Delta Quadrant disrupted its axis]. Studies were brisk, and the Chrysalians, in particular, launched many mapping drone-probes through the wormhole, which returned with a great deal of information on both wormhole travel and stellar cartography in the Delta Quadrant [granted, the latter is somewhat useless, and outdated once Voyager returns].

The Barzans tend to have white hair, simple clothing, and a tendency to enjoy the simple things in life. They’re also somewhat reserved, don’t wish to get overly involved with galactic politics, and intend to maintain this. In some ways, when the Alpha terminus of the Barzan Wormhole destabilized, the Barzans heaved a sigh of relief.
