The Risians (also Risans or Riseans) were a humanoid race native to the planet Risa. They are nearly indistinguishable from Humans by external appearance, though Risians tend to wear a small gold-colored disk, called a ja'risia, on their foreheads. Risians also apparently age at a slower rate than humans. (TNG episode: "Captain's Holiday", DS9 episode: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...", TNG novel: Losing the Peace)
