Species Name: Hirogen

Origin: Delta Quadrant

Description: Hirogens are characterized by their love of “the hunt.” Their whole society is structured around roaming throughout the quadrant, killing other species and keeping peculiar parts of the species as “trophies.” They have no known homeworld, and are usually found in packs. Their hierarchy is similar to that of wolves: top is alpha, bottom is Omega. The packs, also called tribes, stay in touch with one another through an ancient communications network spaning all across the quadrant.

Voyager comes into contact with Voyager upon many occasions for different reasons. They appeared on the following episodes (to read episode descriptions, see Episodes on this site): Message in a Bottle, Hunters, Prey, The Killing Game (Parts I and II), Tsunkatse, and Flesh and Blood.
