I've never liked the Enterprise retcon that Orion society is actually a vicious matriachy where the men are the real slaves - so in the version of Orion society I've established with Jinnifreuz's story, Orion society goes back and forth, but the common element is always exploitation.
Sometimes being a slave means you're a stealth infiltrator for your mistress in the Syndicate, sometimes it means you had no connections and your cousin sold you off for what little latinum you could bring. And I liked the idea that the ancient Orion pantheon was dominated by an all-powerful, all-conquering mother goddess, because that's what the ancient Orions were familiar with.
