For the mirror universe counterpart, see Neanderthal (mirror).

The Neanderthals were a bipedal species on Earth prior to and during the development of Humans. Despite their greater strength and large brain cavity, this species managed to defy evolution by becoming displaced by Humans. Popular belief considered this species to be inherently stupid, however revealing archaeological data shows an intelligence equal to that of early Humans.

In 1974, Roberta Lincoln compared Carlos Quintana to a Neanderthal. (TOS - The Eugenics Wars novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)

The natives of Drissana II were roughly equivalent to the Neanderthals. (TOS novel: Allegiance in Exile)
