Species Name: Talaxian

Origin: Talax

Description: Talaxians first entered the Voyager series on Caretaker, and was not seen in any other series previously. Native to the Delta Quadrant, Talaxians are characterized by their spotted skin and scattered population. One would be hard pressed to find a group of Talaxians outside of their home planet. Neelix, the only Talaxian on board, also serves as the Cheif Moral Officer and “guide to the Delta Quadrant.” Neelix has a very strong sense of humor, a trait not usually seen in his relatives and Talaxian friends.
