Talaxian script

The Talaxian language was the primary language spoken by the Talaxian people.

Nearly all Talaxian proper nouns contained the letter x (pronounced ks).

Talaxian writing resembles strings of long and short rectangles with curvy lines cut out of them. These lines are usually written in horizontal and vertical blocks. (VOY: "Homestead")
