- Race Located in the Delta Quadrant.
Technologically advanced civilization of sentient humanoid telepaths in the Delta Quadrant. Mari society was once overrun by criminal violence. In the early 24th century, the government sought to eliminate violence by outlawing hostile thought, since in a telepathic society, such thought could lead directly to violent acts. By 2374, the incidence of reported violent crime had dropped to nearly zero, in large part due to laws subjecting those with violent thoughts to engramatic purges and neurogenic restructuring to erase violent impulses from their brains. These laws had the unintended side effect of creating a thriving black market in illicit violent mental images (Random Thoughts -VGR).
