The planet J'naii was ruled from a civic chamber. Noor was also the head of a panel of judges dealing with the legal matters of the J'naii people. When the cause of the disappearance of the shuttlecraft Taris Murn was investigated in 2368, Noor promised any resource the planet could provide for the crew of the USS Enterprise-D to salvage the shuttlecraft from the null space pocket it was lost into.
When Soren, a J'naii shuttle pilot, was suspected of having become romantically involved with Commander William T. Riker, Noor held the hearing to determine if Soren was a deviant. After Soren admitted having gender urges, Noor ruled Soren to required psychotectic treatment to become a normal J'naii. Riker suggested giving Soren asylum on board the Enterprise-D, taking Soren away from J'naii so as not to be a disruptive influence. Noor said this was out of the question, as the government of J'naii took its commitment to cure the sickness of its citizens seriously. (TNG: "The Outcast")
