The Ollayans were a xenophobic reptillian species from the planet Ollaya. The Ollayans were divided among two main socio-political sects, the Association and the Confederation, who vied for control over their people.
The Ollayans made first contact with the Ferengi Alliance in the mid-24th century, their world being close to Ferengi space. In 2368, they charted the nearby Dixas system and established a joint mining operation there with the Ferengi. (Kal-Dixas Spaceport)
