The Markonians were a humanoid species native to the Markonia sector in the Delta Quadrant. Following the destruction of their homeworld, the Markonians became a nomadic people fostering good relationships between species by trade and diplomacy. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle", ST video game: Star Trek Online)

Culture

In keeping with their modesty customs, Markonians wore a garment covering their heads and shoulders, called a chador. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle")

History

A long time before the 24th century, the Markonian homeworld was destroyed and the Markonians became a people of refugees. The Markonians adapted well to their new nomadic lifestyle and became traders, explorers and diplomats. Their status as neutral party earned the Markonians the trust of neighboring species, and the Markonians helped diffuse territorial conflicts.

Subsequently, the Markonians build bridges of trust and became the vanguard of a flourishing interstellar community. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle")

On stardate 53049.2 (January 19, 2376), the Federation made first contact with the Markonians when USS Voyager docked at the Markonian outpost. Members of various species from the outpost visited Voyager, including at least one Markonian. (VOY episode: "Survival Instinct") Voyager's Lieutenant Commander Chakotay was impressed by the Markonians and believed the interstellar community they had set up was a Federation in the making.

Soon after, the Markonian station manager helped Voyager locate its lost multispatial probe in an anomaly that threatened the outpost. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle")
