Trill

Trill is a world best known for its "joined" inhabitants, the beneficiaries of an intimate symbiotic union between the planet's two sentient life-forms, the humanoid Trill and a species of small vermiform symbionts. Most of the personality traits and memories of the combined life-form are contributed by the symbionts, who are extremely long lived.

So while a visitor to Trill might think he is speaking with a young man, he may actually be conversing with an accumulation of personalities- only some of which may be male and almost none of which are young. In effect, the symbionts are living time capsules, preserving the calues and customs of Trill antiquity.
