OOC: Below you will all find a link for what Memory Alpha has on the Ilidarians. There isn’t a lot there, but they were briefly mentioned in Voyager as having had a successful/peaceful trade mission. Since there aren’t a lot of details other than they were peaceful and open to trade, we thought it might be fun for the crew to take on the species and get to delve into them as well as explore the diplomatic side of Manhattan’s mission.
The Ilidarians wanted to come on board. They had engaged in a very productive trade mission with Voyager very early on when the ship had been stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Now that the Federation had a permanent presence in the Delta Quadrant the Ilidarians had reached out to the Federation. They were interested in another trade exchange, as they put it. However they didn’t venture out much past their neighboring systems. They were not interested, at this time, in traveling all the way to Event Horizon. So Admiral S’Tek had the idea that perhaps the Manhattan could meet the Ilidarians.
The Manhattan was no where close by or in a position to receive these guests immediately. Since the ship was farther out than the Ilidarians were willing to travel that gave Revna some time to iron out the details. After some back and forth a preliminary list of items they would like to trade for and what they offered in return was established. There was one thing Revna found very strange. When Revna requested information on their customs and culture and food so that they could be prepared to greet them properly, the Ilidarians balked refusing to provide such information except for the proper honorary titles. They insisted that because the Voyager delegation had conformed to their customs so willingly they wished to do the same. Conforming to Federation customs, foods, and everything else. Revna did get them to agree to send along any dietary restrictions that might create a medical issue.
With a list of personages and their positions, as well as their requests for trade, Revna said farewell to the Honored Elder. Now armed with enough information to give Cochrane some thing to work with, Revna went in search of Cpt. Cochrane. =/\=McKenzie to Cochrane. I need to speak with you when you have time about a diplomatic contact that has been requested.=/\=
