Their religion stems from a connection that they have with a mysterious being called Mot'Ta. One of their most cherished rituals is even named after this being. The Mot'Ta ritual involves a telepathic link being created by a device which then also the participants to bond. Kobalians believe this strenghtens the bonds and relationships between people. In 2379, Captain Benjamin Kelsoe of the USS Pioneer participated in a Mot'Ta ritual. ("The Bonding")
One of the most sacred icons in Kobalian religion is a rare blue flower called a Gem'De. Kobalians believe the Gem'De to possess the most beautiful scent in the entire universe. To humans the flower's scent is similar to a pile of festering waste, remarking such a belief is consider an insult and a crime on Kobal.
