NOTE: After 2372, Benzite medical science makes the use of the respirator unnecessary. Also note that Benzites from the same geostructure look identical to non-Benzites, which opens up some interesting ideas, such as allowing a player to play multiple Benzites from the same geostructure

Benzites were seen in the ST: TNG episodes "A Matter of Honor" and "Coming of Age", and were also seen in the DS9 episode "Apocalypse Rising".
