Canon Facts Backstage
A humanoid civilisation native to the planet
Talax in the Delta Quadrant. Externally Talaxians are identifiable by the
distinctive yellow colouration of their skin and the ridges of bone on
their skulls, (see associated image). Internally, the major difference
between Talaxians and Humans is in the lung system; Talaxian lungsd are
directly linked to the spinal column at multiple points.
Talaxians tend to be a very enthusiastic and friendly
people, quick to trust others and easy to get along with. They have few
enemies, although in 2346 they entered into a war with the Haakonian Order.
After ten years of fighting the Hakkonians used a Metreon Cascade weapon
on Rinax, killing some 300,000 Talaxian colonists of that moon and prompting
the Talaxians to surrender. Many Talaxians who came into contact with the
fallout of the weapon subsequently developed metremia, a fatal blood disease.
Talaxians have had relatively little contact with
Humans, although one individual has served as Morale Officer for some years
aboard the USS Voyager.
