Denobulans

TimelinePeople
Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Denobulans1
Political Affiliation : Federation
Quadrant : Alpha

Technically advanced Humanoid species originating on the planet Denobula1 in the Denobula Triaxia system.2 In the past, Denobulans believed they were the only intelligent species in the galaxy. They were shocked when they were contacted by the B'Saari, but even then some Denobulans refused to accept the truth at first.3

The Denobulans have had contact with Humanity since at least 2151, and one of their number worked with Earth's Starfleet in that year.1 Denobulans can be identified by the characteristic bone ridges on their face. They tend to be a friendly and outgoing people, curious about the world around them and especially interested in the customs and habits of the alien species they meet.4

The Denobulans have a complex mating patterns, including a periodic mating season. Details of the mating process are relatively scarce, but the Denobulans have males and females much as Humans do, with at least two "combatants" engaged in the act of mating. They produce strong pheromones to indicate when they are interested in a romantic relationship.5 The Denobulans practice group marriages, with several wives and husbands in a single family group.6

They had a form of entertainment similar to movies a few hundred years ago, but these lost their appeal when the people realised that their real lives were much more interesting. As a rule, Denobulans don't like to be touched by others. Parts of the Denobulan night life can be disturbing to the uninitiated, and it is not advisable to venture out at night alone.5Denobulan males are very uncomfortable undressing in front of others7, but are quite comfortable naked when alone.8Most Denobulans do not talk during meals, as they regard it as a waste of time.9

The Denobulans fought a series of wars with the Antarans, with the last finishing around 1851. Much animosity still exists between the two species, especially on the Antaran side.10 Denobulans regard stress induced hallucinations as a healthy and harmless way for a person to release nervous energy.11

Denobulans normally require very little sleep, but they do hibernate for six days each year - if woken during this cycle they are extremely groggy and unsure of their surroundings.12 When stressed, a Denobulan will sometimes initiate an instinctive defence mechanism which causes their face to puff up to about twice normal size, intimidating an attacker.13
