Technologically sophisticated humanoid Delta Quadrant civilization.  The Nezu people maintained five colonies on a Class-M planet.  Access to space from the Nezu colony planet was provided by an orbital tether system that extended from the planet's surface to a station in planetary orbit.  The colony world was plagued by asteroid impacts.  It was learned that the asteroids had been deliberately sent to the Nezu colony planet by the Etanian Order.  The Etanians anticipated that what appeared to be a natural disaster would cause the Nezu to evacuate the planet.  Once the population had left, the Etanians would have arrived to stake a claim.  The U.S.S. Voyager came to the rescue of the Nezu and discovered the Etanians' plan, driving them away when they attmpted to invade openly (Rise -VGR).
