Esoqq (meaning "fighter" in the Chalnoth language) was a Chalnoth. Esoqq claimed to have many lethal enemies among the anarchist Chalnoth, but also claimed he had slain the ones that mattered.

In 2366, Esoqq was abducted by a hitherto unknown species along with Jean-Luc Picard, the Bolian Mitena Haro and the Mizarian Kova Tholl in a covert experiment to study their different attitudes towards authority. Food given to Esoqq while imprisoned was poison for him. Esoqq was released from imprisonment along with his fellow abductees after Picard exposed the experiment. (TNG: "Allegiance")

Esoqq was played by actor Reiner Schöne, who had to endure some excruciating Chalnoth makeup for the role. "Despite the uncomfortable makeup, Reiner had a great time playing the part," observed Michael Westmore, "and really threw himself into it." (Star Trek: The Next Generation Makeup FX Journal, p. 66)
