Prime Directive - Telemachus
The asari, native to the planet Thessia, are a mono-gender race — distinctly feminine in appearance — the asari are known for their elegance, diplomacy, and psionic talent. Their millennia – long lifespan and unique physiology — allowing them to reproduce with a partner of any gender or species —give them a conservative but convivial attitude toward other races.
The asari were first contacted by CDR Donovan Ford of the USS Telemachus in June, 2210, following the asari’s successful test of a warp-capable starship. Following the murder of the asari leader known as The First at the hands of her chief finance minister and the subsequent attempt to frame CDR Ford for the crime, the asari decided to focus on their internal difficulties before joining the galaxy at large.
