Society and cultureEdit
Pakleds were noted for their apparently underdeveloped verbal communication skills. However, they used this, as well as their simple-looking appearance, to deceive other races. They controlled an area of space that included the Kalla system. However, they appeared to be a largely nomadic culture, traveling between worlds in search of supplies and materials needed for their continued survival. (TNG episode: "Firstborn")
First contact between the Federation and Pakleds took place in the year 2365, when the USS Enterprise-D answered a distress signal from a Pakled transport, the Mondor. After affecting repairs to their ship, the Pakleds attempted to hold Enterprise chief engineer Geordi La Forge captive, but eventually released him after witnessing a demonstration by the Enterprise. (TNG episode: "Samaritan Snare")
In late 2373, a Borg cube on a direct course for Sector 001 encountered the Mondor en route. The Borg Collective deemed the Pakleds unintelligent and considered it an inefficient use of resources to assimilate the freighter. However, they were later assimilated when the Borg needed extra reinforcements in their battle with Starfleet forces in Earth orbit. (TNG - Strange New Worlds 10 short story: "A Dish Served Cold")
There was a strong Pakled presence on Deep Space 9 in the 2370s decade. They would often frequent Quark's, the Klingon restaurant and other establishments on the Promenade. (DS9 episodes: "The Collaborator", "Bar Association")
