Nilani Kahn was a female Trill who lived in the 23rd century. Nilani was a joined Trill and was the host of the Kahn symbiont.

Kahn was a quantum warp scientist who was part of the team at the Daystrom Institute that developed the transwarp project, and oversaw initial Starfleet tests of the technology. Kahn met Torias at the Symbiosis Institute on Trill, where both were initiates. Kahn married Torias soon after he was joined with the Dax symbiont. Kahn was widowed six months later, when Torias was killed in an accident aboard the shuttlecraft Infinity. After Dax was removed from Torias, Nilani spent his last moments at his bed side.

In 2372, Jadzia Dax and Lenara Kahn briefly considered renewing the relationship the two recalled between their past hosts Torias and Nilani. (DS9 episode: "Rejoined")
