Gorta, a Dopterian

The Dopterians were an unscrupulous humanoid species found throughout the Alpha Quadrant.

They were distant relatives of the Ferengi, with which they shared an inablility to be read by telepathic species such as Betazoids. (TNG: "Firstborn"; DS9: "The Forsaken")

Dopterians also shared an unusual resemblance to the Kobheerian species; their appearance was almost identical, but Dopterians had Ferengi-like noses, whereas Kobheerians had two large, elongated flat nostrils in the place of a nose.





The Dopterians apparently have an automated attack weapon known as a "Dopterian interceptor" according to DS9: "Business as Usual". The name was not verbally given on screen, however, the attacking device was identified as such in the script.

In the script for "The Forsaken", a Dopterian present near Lwaxana Troi was described as a 'distant cousin to a Ferengi'.

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on the star chart United Federation of Planets I, the Dopterians were from the Dopteria (Kappa Coronae Borealis) system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
