Salor is a Matriarchal society to the extreme. Men are but givers of seed with no more thought spent on them after the deed is done. They perform the hardest, most dangerous, labor on the planet. As far as the women are concerned, alien men are even lower than Salorri men.
Both alien men and women felt the call of the Sirens until the USS Talon deactivated the underwater amplifier and threw the society into turmoil. The Salorri spend a great deal of time in the water and can remain submerged for long periods of time.
They communicate underwater using a system similar to that of fish (emitters and receivers along the body) and an extra organ in the throat. They enhanced this organ to transmit subliminal messages to alien races and enslave them. The USS Talon destroyed the transmitter, sending the Salorri into global chaos.
