Tzenkethi insignia image.

Cal-tai was a medical condition distinctive to Tzenkethi, described as a growth in their spines. It could only be cured by a surgical procedure that removed the growth; as of 2380, that surgery had been performed successfully by only one doctor, Starfleet officer Rebecca Emmanuelli.
