Laxeth was a Talaxian who served as the communications master of a Talaxian convoy in 2372.

An old friend of Neelix's, Laxeth used to deal in less-than-legitimate commerce. The last time he contacted Neelix, Laxeth traded him for an ill-gotten wheel of Pendrashian cheese. Neelix referred to him as an "old dilithium scrubber".

In 2372, Laxeth contacted Neelix to inform him of the convoy's scheduled rendezvous with USS Voyager for the transfer of a passenger: Tom Paris.

A day after the transfer, Laxeth contacted Voyager to inform them that they were attacked by the Kazon-Nistrim, who had abducted Paris. (VOY: "Investigations")

Laxeth was played by actor Jerry Sroka.
