Quomians are a mutated race of rat-like humans native to the once inhospitable world of Quom II with an average lifespan of no longer than 65 years. They are also an enslaved race subject into forced labor camps under the will of the Klingon Empire. Before their enslavement, they were once a primitive, tribalistic race who used to possess Neolithic technology and lived peacefully in small communes. However, since the Quom II War, most of the Quomians have long forgotten their culture and history, due to the work of re-education camps set up by Klingon forces. They inherently despise war and are often cowardly by nature.
