The Tamarians, or as they have been known in legend, 'The Children of Tama', are considered one of the most mystifying races in the known galaxy. This is due merely to their linguistic mechanisms that have thus far prevent-ed verbal communication with virtually all races that have ever encountered them, and as a result no diplomatic understanding has so far endured. Traditional Universal Translator technology would fail to process or interpret Tamarian speech. From analysis their language is classified as being purely metaphoric, alluding to ancient tales and deeds of their mytho-culture. They are a technologically advanced race, and appear friendly, and are keen for contact and cultural interchange - if only their language could be translated and understood, and if they could understand us.
The myths that form the Tamarian language come from hundreds of alien worlds, some of which no longer exist. Within these myths lie many of the secrets of ancient, technologically advanced civilizations. Often, the solution to a new theoretical puzzle is found in these ancient stories.
The tales of the heroic deeds of the iconic Uzani are the cornerstone of Tamarian culture. His monument stands tall and proud in the capital as a symbol of Tamarian heritage.
