Lurians

NotesImagesDatapoints
TimelinePeople
Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Lurians1
Quadrant : Alpha

Lurians are a Humanoid species2 native to the alpha quadrant. Externally they are slightly larger than Humans; their skin tends to be rough textured and brown in colour.3 They normally have hair on their bodies, but some Lurians have been known to become bald when poisoned by exposure to Latinum. Lurians have two stomachs, multiple hearts,1 and four lungs.4

The Lurian government is a monarchy.1 The Lurian people tend to be highly talkative and excitable - on hearing of the Dominion threat, one Lurian native of Deep Space Nine ran naked and screaming into the Bajoran temple to beg the prophets for protection.5 They generally have large families - eighteen siblings is not unusual for a Lurian family.6
