The Craynid were an insectoid species native to either the Alpha or Beta Quadrant. The only one shown has a hunched posture, round black eyes set into a massive head, and skin that is pale, almost translucent. Craynids are known for having large offsprings, sometimes with numbers in the hundreds. They walked in a strange, shuffling step that was slow and painful-looking. They were also not known for duplicity, as no known recorded incident occurred in several hundred years as of the 24th century.
