An Arkenite Starfleet officer from 2286

Arkenites were a humanoid species. Members of this race served in Starfleet. Arkenites were distinguished by their three cranial lobes, pointed ears, and solid green eyes that lack an iris. They had pale skin veering toward gray or very light tan.

In 2286, an Arkenite served in Starfleet as a communications officer at Starfleet Headquarters on Earth during the crisis created by the alien Whale Probe. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

The species name was never mentioned on-screen. This Arkenite was played by Michael Berryman, who later went on to play Captain Rixx in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
According to the Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update, Arkenites are native to the planet Arken II. They are an aquatic race with complex sensory organs that can detect changes in temperature, pressure and magnetic fields. Arkenites were once a subject race of the Andorian Empire.
