Humanoid inhabitants of planet Ekos.  The Ekosians were the victims of a terrible miscalculation by Federation sociologic observer John Gill, who tried to bring peace to the planet by introducing a government patterned after Earth's Nazi Germany.  The plan initially worked, but Gill was unable to avoid the brtual excesses of the ancient Nazis.  Gill became the puppet of ambitious Ekosians seeking to gain power for themselves by creating a repressive regime and seeking to exterminate the citizens of neighboring planet Zeon.  In 2268, the Starship Enterprise, investigating the planet, allowed Gill to denounce the Nazi movement, paving the way for the resumption of peaceful relations with the Zeons (Patterns of Force -TOS).
