Spacefaring humanoid civilization. The Son'a were a nomadic and largely hedonistic people who lived in opulence and coveted such material objects as jewels and precious metals. They were originally from the Ba'ku planet, but joined with offlanders around 2275 in an unsuccessful bit to take control of the idyllic Ba'ku society. The Ba'ku elders banished the renegades, who later called themselves the Son'a. In 2325, the Son'a conquered and enslaved the Tarlac and Ellora peoples. By 2375, genetic anomalies prevented the Son'a from procreation. They used genetic manipulation and other cosmetic techniques to extend life and physical appearance, but they knew they were a dying society. They enlisted the help of a Starfleet officer to try to abduct all the residents of the Ba'ku planet and transplant them so they could possess the planet that gave them birth. The coup was defeated when the Enterprise-E became involved.
