J'Naii

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : J'Naii1
Quadrant : Alpha

Humanoid alpha quadrant species friendly to the Federation. The J'Naii considered themselves to have evolved beyond the need for different genders, and strongly supressed any feelings of gender amongst their population. They reproduce by incubating their young in fiberous husks which were inseminated by both parents, and all sexual liasions were stricktly forbidden by law. Despite this, some J'Naii continued to feel themselves to be male or female, and there were occasional cases in which the authorities would 'treat' individuals with psychotectic therapy to remove these feelings.

One such individual was Soren, a J'Naii who felt itself to be female. Soren worked with the joint J'Naii-Federation mission to find and rescue a lost shuttlecraft in 2368; during the mission Soren became attracted to Commander Riker and the two persued a brief relationship. When the authorities discovered the relationship they took Soren into custody and, over her strenuous objections, treated her to remove her gender feelings.1
