Zoumas was an alien trader who originated from a humanoid species that possessed several growths along their pale skin.

In 2152, Zoumas was arrested by the Enolians near Keto-Enol, and was meant to be taken to Canamar, but the Enolian transport experienced difficulty on the way.

On one occasion, his colleagues left him alone in a forest on Burala Prime, and he lost several toes to frostbite, and had walked with a slight limp after that.

While aboard the transport, he enjoyed telling Trip Tucker his stories, ranging from Fluvian fungus, to the tastes of Melvaran mud fleas and Cardassian tojal, to his encounter with an Orion slave girl. Zoumas also had a knowledge of the other aliens on the Transport. He helped break up a fight between Trip and a Nausicaan prisoner and he warned Archer about Kuroda Lor-ehn. (ENT: "Canamar")


Background information

Zoumas was played by Sean Whalen. However, his lines of dialogue were dubbed by another actor. (Portal47 interview with Stephen Welke on 24 August 2016)

In the final draft script of "Canamar", Zoumas was described as "a thin, nervous alien." During a scene in which Jonathan Archer is informed he is about to be released, Zoumas was scripted to be sleeping "fitfully". However, he is clearly awake in the final version of that scene. Similarly, a line of dialogue that wasn't in the episode's final draft script features Zoumas, speaking to Tucker, react to a Nausicaan prisoner who sarcastically apologized to Tucker, Zoumas stating, "That was nice. It reminds me of the time I was on..." before Tucker shuts him up, which was also not in the final draft teleplay.
