Do not fill this in!===Son'a=== [[File:Son'a.jpg|thumb|left|200px|The '''Son'a''' are a group of renegade, no longer immortal Ba'ku.]] In the early 24th century, a group of renegade young Ba'ku rebelled against their agrarian way of life and reclaimed the technology of their ancestors. Exiled from the planet, they became spacefaring nomads and presented themselves as a distinct civilization known as the '''Son'a'''. Armed with superior technology, the Son'a compensated for their small numbers by enslaving and assimilating two species: the [[Ellora]] and the [[Tarlac]], who became their servants and made up most of their military. By producing and selling the same ketracel-white drug that the [[Jem'Hadar]] are dependent on, the Son'a became allies of the [[Changeling (Star Trek)|Dominion]], and mastered the use of subspace-based weaponry which had been outlawed in the Second Khitomer Accord. About five decades after leaving Ba'ku, the bodies of the Son'a started to deteriorate quickly as a result of spending too much time away from the metaphasic radiation particles emitted by the planet's ring system. Since the Briar Patch had become Federation territory by that time, the Son'a tried to strike a deal with the Federation to harness the metaphasic particles from the rings and produce a concentrated serum of youth as a cure to their condition (simply returning to the planet wouldn't be enough, due to the advanced deterioration of their tissues). This procedure would have the unfortunate side effect of making Ba'ku uninhabitable, and thus require the forceful eviction of the 600 Ba'ku citizens that were still on the planet. Although Starfleet Admiral Dougherty agreed to this, the plan was foiled by the USS ''Enterprise''-E crew led by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who warned the Ba'ku about the situation and helped them evade capture. After the revelation that the Son'a and the Ba'ku are actually two different factions of the same race, and the death of the Son'a commander Ru'afo, the remaining Son'a were ultimately returned to the planet and reintegrated into Ba'ku society.
