Vahni Vahltupali were tall, slender and vaguely [[humanoid]], having two legs, a narrow torso, two [[tentacle]]s in place of arms, and a bulbous head-like projection ringed by a complex ocular organ. They possessed neither vocal nor auditory organs, but were able to change the colour and texture of their flesh akin to an [[Earth]] [[octopus]]. Their skeleton was firm but malleable, and many-jointed, enabling dramatic contortions.

A typical Vahni city was laid out in concentric circles, its colourful metal and glass buildings usually only one or two stories tall. Pedestrian thoroughfares, public meeting areas and numerous greenswards were interspersed throughout. Underground transportation grids allowed fast and easy access to local and distant points.

Prior to [[2376]], the Vahni Vahltupali had made contact with two spacefaring [[species]].
   
In [[June]] [[2376]], the Vahni made first contact with the [[Federation]] [[starship]] {{USS|Defiant|NX-74205) (II}}. Just after the ''Defiant'''s arrival, the Vahni experienced the most powerful earthquake to date. This was coupled with the destruction of their [[moon]]. The ''Defiant'' discovered the cause of the quakes were energy pulses originating from the [[Prentara]] homeworld, unwittingly caused by a lifeform called the [[Inamuri]] emerging into this universe.
