Morn, a Lurian male

The Lurians are a humanoid species from the planet, Luria, located in the Ionite Nebula region. Although rarely seen away from their homeworld, some Lurians have moved out into the galaxy to live out their lives.


Although they are humanoid in appearance, the Lurians have developed multiple hearts, four lungs at the minimum, and two stomachs, which has made them a more resistant species against poisons and other multitudes of toxins. The additional stomach also allows them to store liquids for years at a time. They are about the same height as a human, but have a broader and heavier body. They have gray or tan skin with narrow, elongated heads. They also have wide mouths, puggish noses, and small, deep-set eyes. Most Lurians seem to have hair, except for Morn, who has gone bald. (DS9 episodes: "Through the Looking Glass", "The Way of the Warrior", "Who Mourns for Morn?", "The Sound of Her Voice")

Lurians were supposedly immune to Vegan choriomeningitis; nevertheless, Morn contracted the disease in 2369. Julian Bashir discovered a treatment for him. (DS9 - Invasion! novel: Time's Enemy)


The Lurians were neutral during the Dominion War. (DS9 short story: "Foundlings")


One government organization is Lurian Security. It is not unknown for it to have non-Lurian personnel. (DS9 episode: "Who Mourns for Morn?")


The Lurians have a royal family, including a crown prince. (DS9 episode: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

This royal family is known as the Gheljiar, and it united the people of Luria thousands of years ago. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Core Game Book; DSC novel: The Enterprise War)

Lurian postmodernist poetry is known to be perplexing to non-Lurians. (DS9 - Mission Gamma novel: Cathedral)


Lurians believe that, by bringing food and drink in honor of a deceased person, it gives them sustenance in the afterlife. (DS9 episode: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
