The Frezhs were a race of fish-like humanoids native to the planet Frezhlix, in the same system as the Sif'kricians, in the Mid Rim. They developed a feud with the Sif'krician race shortly after the Battle of Endor. It was given new fire after it was revealed that the Bothans were involved in the destruction of Caamas, and the Sif'kricians supported the Drashtine Initiative. The Frezhs began blockading shipment of pommwomm plants, in order to economically cripple the Sif'kricians. The New Republic acted to break the blockade, assisting with the liberation of the Sycophant Jolly and responding only after the Frezhs commander opened fire. The Frezhs twisted the facts to petition against the Republic in the Senate.
