Of all the species ever given in Star Trek, this is one of the least humanoid ever shown. Yes, they have two appendages at their sides, but they were basically flippers with claws. Under their robes, did we ever actually see any feet? Also, it was explained in "The Chase" that the Ancient humanoids were the cause of the humanoid similarities between so many millions of species throughout the galaxy. Given that the solanogen's origin is in fact outside of the entire galaxy, I am removing the "humanoid" reference from this page.

I'm forced to disagree. With the exception of what is at the end of their arms, they follow the humanoid model completely. They have a head, a torso, two arms, two legs. Compared to the Sheliak, the Changelings, they follow humanoid to a T. They are no less humanoid looking than others, such as the Antedians, the Reptohumanoids, the Rigellians, and many more. --OuroborosCobra talk 08:20, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
Something can still be humanoid even if it is in another universe/galaxy. "The Chase" did not claim that all similarly shaped lifeforms were descended from that original being, just the ones in the DNA puzzle. I think calling them humanoid is reasonable.--31dot 11:30, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I think they resembled a cross between the Charon and the Sauvax, from the SWEU. (UTC)

STO speciesEdit

Removed the 'Apocrypha' section, as per this post, they are not the same species as STO's Elachi: The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
