Androssi society is very hierarchical and is ruled by the Elite class who finance Androssi vessels and send them out to acquire advanced technology for the Elite class to use and sell. These vessels are run by members of the Officer class, and members of the Worker class provide the crew for the ships. Members of the Officer and Worker classes solely focus on their assigned tasks and are not given to public displays of emotion.
The Androssi's first encounter with the Federation was in 2370, when they were discovered to be offering technological aid to the Maquis inside the Demilitarized Zone. However, their aid came at a high price so the Maquis were not able to afford their help.
The Androssi often target unused and abandoned facilities and starships used by various races across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. In 2376, Overseer Biron and a salvage team proceeded to the Trivan system in Cardassian space to gain access to Empok Nor. Biron's mission was to convert the abandoned station into a mobile weapons platform. Their mission was hampered by the arrival of the Starfleet vessel USS da Vinci, who needed to obtain the reactor core of the station for Deep Space 9. After a fight between the two, Biron and his team were forced to withdraw. (SCE eBook: Cold Fusion)
In 2378, the Androssi started to plague the Rashanar Battle Site, by scouting the wreckage, and attempting to steal the most promising wrecks. After stealing the yacht Calypso from the USS Enterprise-E, Overseer Ghissel led a large salvage team to steal the D'deridex-class warbird, IRW Rom'drex. Their attempt was prevented by the Enterprise, the USS Juno, and the Ontailians, although they managed to severely damage the Juno. (TNG novel: A Time to Be Born)
Androssi are roughly humanoid and skin tone ranges from yellow to brown or sepia, and their hair colorization is similar. Males typically wear their hair long and tied back, and more often than not also sport a trimmed beard.
