The Gnalish were a reptilian civilization native to the planet Gnala, somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrant. The Gnalish were also members of the United Federation of Planets. (TNG novel: Reunion)

There were three subtypes of Gnalish, the small Fejjimaera, the medium sized Mazzereht and the large Aklaash. They could interbreed, the subtype being determined by the father. (STA novel: Progenitor)

The Gnalish regularly performed a ritual, where groups of up to six males ran along prescribed paths through the wilderness. The leader of the winning group would be allowed to fertilize a cache of eggs. Each male could only be a leader once in his lifetime. A group was considered to have reached the finish line, when its last member crossed the line. In case of a draw the leaders of two groups would fight a duel. Before fertilizing the eggs, the winner would first scribe the runes on his insadja'tu stone into the ground. (STA novel: Progenitor)

Noted Gnalish[]



Author Michael Jan Friedman has agreed with fan speculation that Sord of TAS (The Jihad) is probably Gnalish, in particular of the relatively smaller Fejjimaera sub-species introduced in Progenitor. [This is based on past personal interaction between the author and Therin of Andor at; also the "Gnalish" entry at].[citation needed]
