The Nenlar were a warp-capable species native to the planet Alungis IV located in Sector 48472, in the Beta Quadrant. (VOY - Gateways novel: No Man's Land)

Biology Edit

The Nenlar are a humanoid species that looked similar to the Cardassians save for the species’ trademark arrogance. They are about two and a half meters tall, and quite powerfully built. They possessed small, iridescent scales that covered what flesh was visible, long black hair, and the females had breasts, indicating that they were mammalian.

Their hands had long, tapered fingers and a peculiar hornlike growth protruding from the wrists. In addition, they had slightly elongated mouths similar to muzzles and they had vestigial, stumpy tails. (VOY - Gateways novel: No Man's Land)

History Edit

The Nenlar homeworld was severely damaged in a war many centuries ago by the Iudka. Their planet’s recovery was a long, painful path. The Nenlar eventually managed to reach the stars.

Using faster-than-light travel, they searched for ways to enrich their world-new crops, new technology, new ideas. Many intrepid souls left their homeworld altogether, to scratch out new lives for themselves elsewhere.

Others however like to observe first, then make first contact on their own terms, once they determine a species is not a threat. (VOY - Gateways novel: No Man's Land)

Culture Edit

Due to their traumatic experience with the Iudka, the Nenlar have an ingrained fear of being dominated and taken advantage of again. Their interactions with other species make them appear overly anxious and fearful. (VOY - Gateways novel: No Man's Land)
