Physiology

Vorta are humanoids with white skin, black hair and lilac-colored eyes. They have good hearing, poor eyesight, and are immune to most forms of poison. The Vorta also have a very poorly developed aesthetical as well as sensory taste. About the only things they can taste are certain food items from their homeworld. The term humanoid refers to any being whose body structure resembles that of a human. ...


The Vorta reproduce by cloning. It is also indicated that the Vorta's loyalty to the Founders is partially genetic (i.e. that the devotion they express has been built into their genetic make-up by the Founders). Unlike the all-male Jem'Hadar (also cloned), there are both male and female Vorta, though it is not specified whether the Vorta are fertile or capable of sexual reproduction. The Vorta mainly serve as the intellectual branch of the Dominion, functioning as diplomats and ambassadors on behalf of the Dominion and the Founders. The presence of a Vorta typically denotes Dominion interest or involvement within any given situation. Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of an original. ...

Psychokinesis (literally mind-movement) or PK is the more commonly used term today for what in the past was known as telekinesis (literally distant-movement). It refers to the psi ability to influence the behavior of matter by mental intention (or possibly some other aspect of mental activity) alone. ...


Vorta have a suicide device implanted within their bodies. If a Vorta is given an order to commit suicide, he or she will activate the device, resulting in death within a matter of seconds.


Vorta History

Little is known about the history of the Vorta. They have a legend that they were once a primitive ape-like species, until a Founder crashed on their planet. The Vorta helped the Founder and in turn the Founder promised that they would one day be an important part of a great empire. The Founders then helped the Vorta through genetic manipulation. But with no independent verification of the story, the possibility does exist that the story is a propaganda piece. A planet is generally considered to be a relatively large mass of accreted matter in orbit around a star that is not a star itself. ...
