We were first introduced to the Orions in Star Trek before Captain Kirk, when the Talosians cast Captain Pike into one of their illusions, with Vina as an exotic green Orion Slave Girl. Another green Orion woman was the Consort of Garth of Izar when he took over the prison he had been sent to. In ST: Enterprise, Captain Archer found out about the Orion Syndicate and its slave trade when he had to rescue nine of his own crew from the slave market on Verex III.
But do you really know the Orions?
The Orion Orientation College will introduce you to what the Orions really are, their planets, their people, their culture, and their long and tumultuous history. There is a lot more here than just green Slave Women!
Finally, the secrets about the galaxy's most whispered about race will be revealed.

OOC105 - The Orion Culture If you think the people are complex, wait until you study their society and culture.
