Species Name: Ocampa

Origin: Ocampa, Delta Quadrant

Description: The characteristics of Ocampa differ between individuals. All Ocampa have telepathic abilities which can be strengthened if pursued further. Kes, the only Ocampa aboard Voyager, conitinued to work on her mental abilities throughout the show until she left in the early fourth season (further description, see Characters-Kes on this site). All Ocampa only have a life-span of nine years. In a sense, their aging process is like that of a dog: one year for an Ocampa is about 7-10 years in development.
