Law and government
Lothorians were governed by a parliament or council overseen by a president. The president had at least nine personal guards who wore helmets, red, yellow and blue uniforms, and were armed with rifles and holstered pistols. Lothorians had a death penalty.
In 2269, a Klingon strike team mass-hypnotized the Lothorian president and his council. When the starship USS Enterprise arrived to negotiate a treaty, the president invited James T. Kirk's entire crew to visit the capital city and attend a banquet. Most of the ship's personnel were subsequently hypnotized, then ordered to crash the Enterprise on Earth's capital city as part of a preemptive Klingon invasion of the Federation.
