The Ba'ku are a bunch of nauseating, self-righteous, technology-hating Wholesome Small-Town Folksy People in Star Trek: Insurrection. They inhabit a planet of the same name in an area of space known as the Briar Patch, where abundant metaphasic radiation allows them to live lives free from the burdens of disease and aging (after reaching adulthood). Yet they apparently didn't feel the need to share their great discovery with the rest of the Alpha Quadrant.

Their attitudes are very technophobic which according to Hollywood logic automatically means a perfect idealized lifestyle. One major thing of note about their villiage is up stream of it is located a massive concrete dam they they supposedly build regardless of how impossible it would be fore a population of less then a few hundred to even start to construct such a massive structure. The dam also includes machinery for raising and lowering the spillways in direct violation of their own preachy nonsense.

At one point, a group of them chose to leave the planet and became exiles known as the Son'a. Forbidden to return, the Son'a began to age and suffer diseases like other humanoids, so they schemed to steal the "metaphasic particles" from those who had exiled them.

Organization

The Ba'ku population is tiny, consisting of only a few hundred known members. While they're governance isn't defined, some kind of communal, participatory democracy seems likely.

Threat Assessment

The Ba'ku are pacifists, so they present no significant threat to other civilizations. They appear to be familiar with advanced 24th-century technology, but unwilling to use it. Their tiny population means that a platoon of well armed soldiers could easily defeat them.
