Species vs. Planet

Okay, I wanted to add the language pic, but then the pics far outsized the text, so I decided to re-write it. But now it looks alot like an article for Farius Prime, and not so much the Farians. I don't think it's to far out of acceptablity range... - AJHalliwell 03:05, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, this article needs to be stripped or moved Farius Prime. It seems whoever wrote it thought the species were the planet. I'm suprised this has been able to stick around like this for so long. Jaf 02:31, 13 December 2006 (UTC)Jaf
Ok, I removed almost all info from the page since it was about the planet and not the species. Plus, it included a boatload of speculation. Kennelly (talk) 19:14, September 2, 2019 (UTC)

As of the 2370s, the Farian government had not been entirely successful in controlling their crime rates. As a result, their planet was a hot spot for Orion Syndicate activity. Several Farians were high-ranking members in the Syndicate in the 2370s, including Thadial Bokar and Raimus.

The planet had organized prostitution.

It is unknown if this activity was illegal or not.

Physiologically, Farians were quite similar to Humans except for a rising ridge that went from their nose to the top of their forehead. Farius seems to have been a Class M planet with a standard oxygen/nitrogen breathable atmosphere.

In the late 2360s, Farius was a stop on many cargo runs, and this may have contributed to the planet's diversity. The planet was home to a number of species not native to the planet; species seen there included the Bolians and the Dopterians. (DS9: "The Maquis, Part I", "Honor Among Thieves")
Based on the use of currency, and the low standards on Farius, Farius was presumably not a member of the United Federation of Planets.

The world's planet-wide communications system was a series of com booths, similar to ancient Earth "pay phones". The planet's road system was divided into streets, and public transportation was in place. The planet still used paper currency.

Although a very minor power in the quadrant, there was a Klingon embassy, as well as an ambassador for the Klingon Empire to Farius.

In 2374, Chief Miles O'Brien of Deep Space 9 went to Farius and got caught up in an undercover mission for Starfleet Intelligence. This became worse when the Dominion sent Vorta representative Gelnon to talk with some Syndicate members on the planet, and had several members of the Orion syndicate under Raimus planning the assassination of the Klingon Ambassador. A Human, Liam Bilby, was in charge of planning the assassination, and used his assistants Flith, Krole, and "Connelly" (actually O'Brien working undercover) to carry it out. Starfleet Intelligence pulled O'Brien however, and the assassination was averted. Klingon security took care of the syndicate members. (DS9: "Honor Among Thieves", "Prodigal Daughter")
