The Evora were a humanoid species of small stature, with a population of three hundred million. They were fond of eating flowers, and enjoyed chrysanthemums. A traditional Evoran greeting was "Yew-cheen chef-faw", to which the receiver would respond by placing a beaded headdress on the greeter's head. It was also traditional for them to dance at celebrations.
In 2374, the Evora achieved warp drive. A year later, they agreed to become a United Federation of Planets protectorate; the process was expedited as the Federation needed to compensate for its losses from the Battle of Sector 001 and the Dominion War. A welcome reception was held aboard the USS Enterprise-E, attended by Evoran leader Regent Cuzar. (Star Trek: Insurrection)
