The Overne were a Gamma Quadrant species native to the planet Overne III. They were also members of the Dominion and manufactured starships and weapons for it.

In late 2376, the Overne were facing starvation after an agricultural plague virus swept across Overne III. As they were an important race in the Dominion, Vannis, a female Vorta, began preparations to take food from a newly subjugated race, the Rindamil, to feed the Overne. (DS9 novel: The Dominion: Olympus Descending)

In 2383, Vannis brought Vildish Senra-Nesk, the supervisor of a planet-bound starship construction facility, before Odo and Captain Benjamin Sisko to report on the theft of equipment by forces of the Typhon Pact. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Raise the Dawn)

Vildish Senra-Nes was described as basically humanoid in body plan, at least a head taller than Captain Sisko and covered with golden fur. His knee joints bent both forwards and backwards and his feet connected with his legs at their center, rather than at the heel. He had four arms, two pairs of eyes (one pair was yellow, the other blue), a round head and no obvious ears, nose or mouth. One pair of arms and one pair of eyes faced 'forward' while the other pairs faced 'backward'. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Raise the Dawn)

Dominion translators had difficulty with the Overne language (which was described as consisting of clicks, snaps, chirps, twitters, hums and drones) but Vannis was able to speak it.(ST - Typhon Pact novel: Raise the Dawn)

In 2386, several Overne boarded a Jem'Hadar battle cruiser with more than three thousand other individuals aboard, all intent on starting new lives in the Alpha Quadrant. (DS9 novel: The Long Mirage)
