The Vori have the same appearance as Humans, and they utilize projectile based weaponry similar to 21st century Human weapons. For an unknown reason they are engaged in a destructive war with a race called the Kradin, although there is no evidence as to which species (if either) originated on the contested planet. The war is reported to involve genocide and atrocities although there is no direct evidence of this.
The Vori have an unusual training technique. They kidnap members of their race (or aliens) and place them in a controlled environment. "A combination of mind control techniques including photometric projections, heightened emotional stimuli and highly sophisticated psychotropic manipulation" is used. They convince the trainee that they have witnessed Kradin atrocities. The resulting soldier is fanatical in their desire to kill the Kradin "beasts". This method was used on Commander Chakotay of the USS Voyager when his shuttle crashed on the planet in 2374. (VOY: "Nemesis")
