Does anybody know what these creatures are called? Edit

Short aliens with large skulls

What are they?

What are the little people in the picture called? --Bp 16:52, 10 May 2006 (UTC)#

The species never got a name, but they were seen several times (large and small). Look here Unnamed humanoids (24th century)#Aliens with large heads, pimply skin and external bone mandibles. --Jörg 16:57, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Excellent. Great discription. --Bp 17:03, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Because of the many unknown aliens and characters encountered in the series, I proposed campaign categories at Memory Alpha:Category suggestions#MA Campaigns, in order to make sure that all the unknown characters are listed, but no one gives me an answer about it. - Philoust123 18:17, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Removed sections Edit

I have removed the following sections. This article is titled unidentified humanoids, and the description also says that it is about humanoids. The following sections were about non-humanoids.

Aquatic lifeforms Edit

Aquatic lifeforms evolution table

A table with aquatic lifeforms.

A table with an evolutionary diagram of various alien aquatic lifeforms was displayed in the classrooms aboard the USS Enterprise-D and on Deep Space 9. Some of the lifeforms were very fish-like while others looked distinctively mammalian and saurian. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")

The table was first seen in the nursery in "The Child". It later appeared in the schoolroom aboard the Enterprise-D in "The Offspring", "Reunion", "Imaginary Friend", "Rascals", and "Masks". It also appeared in the biolab in "New Ground" and in the classroom aboard Deep Space 9 in "Cardassians". Some of the aliens show a striking similarity to aquatic dinosaurs or the famous Loch Ness monster.

Footprint and cell sample aliens Edit

Footprints and corresponding cell samples of several species were stored in the library computer of the USS Enterprise-D. Samples of at least 5 alien species were compared to the footprints and cell sample of the Tarchannen III species prior to its discovery. None of the samples was similar to the Tarchannen III lifeform however. (TNG: "Identity Crisis")

Footprint and cell samples
Footprint sample 1Footprint sample 2Footprint sample 3Footprint sample 4Footprint sample 5

While these are unnamed aliens, they are simply not humanoids (heck, in the latter case, we are talking about a few cells). These do belong somewhere on MA. Do we have an "Unnamed Non-Humanoid Aliens"? --OuroborosCobra talk 20:34, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

As we have the pages humanoid and non-humanoid, I think I'll just go ahead and create Unnamed non-humanoids (24th century) and move the aliens there. There is bound to be more strange creatures that can be added there. The same for the remaining two centuries, of course. --Jörg 20:52, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Groups Edit

When there are groups of unknown species, such as the Markonian outpost visitors or the Mikhal Bar visitors, maybe we should move them to a page about their location? This is sometimes the practice - Nimbus III inhabitants, Motherlode inhabitants. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

I haven't seen these episodes but I agree that when you have a practice on a wiki it should be kept constant Yarnek 22:21, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Humanoids from "Scientific Method" Edit

The page is missing the unnamed humanoid aliens from the Voyager episode "Scientific Method". They were cloaked and experimenting on the crew. ( 08:45, March 4, 2010 (UTC))

That's because they're called the Srivani. :) - Archduk3 08:52, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Tailheads/Chandir Edit

Well it seems like these poor species are on this page even though they have been named in Star Trek:Titan, isn't that official enough? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

No. See the canon policy. It could be mentioned as a background note. --31dot 13:02, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Emissary Edit

What is this alien from Emissary? Should it be here? --Golden Monkey 18:24, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think I've seen him around, and I think he should belong on the page if he's not named. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:04, December 30, 2014 (UTC)
Decided to add this guy to the article TrekkieCub314 (talk) 07:24, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Accession/Homefront Alien Edit

There is an alien species I've seen in two episodes of DS9 so far, and I don't know if he's named or not. His first appearance is as the alien dignitary in Homefront at the conference at Antwerp that is standing in the middle of the horseshoe table. His second appearance is in Quark's during the episode Accession.

Again, not certain if he's been seen before or named, but wanted to check before adding this section. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:12, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

I decided to add these guys, but as separate species. They are under Purple-skinned Alien with Elongated Head and Facial Flaps and Brown-skinned, Elongated Head Alien, respectfully. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 15:44, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Another Accession alien Edit

There is a man who is seen in the crowd when Akorem is giving his speech. The man's face is barely visible, and only for a split second, as the camera pans from the assembling crowd up to Kira and Odo on the second level of the promenade. The back of his head can be seen a few times throughout the scene. Can anyone get a good enough look at him to determine what species he is? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:16, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

This has been added under Alien with Cranial Ridges. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 10:30, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Sanctuary Alien Edit

There is a member of an alien race at the dabo table during a scene in Quarks, and I don't think it's on here, if it even should be. The alien is bald, has grayish/yellowish skin, and a nose that looks vaguely pig-like. Can anyone else take a look at this and confirm? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:20, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

That alien also appeared in DS9: "Emissary". The preceding unsigned comment was added by TrekkieCub314 (talk • contribs).

This has been added under Bald, wide-mouthed alien. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:55, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Tribunal Alien Edit

There appears to be an alien in the background during Tribunal when O'brien meets Boone on the promenade. He is bald with a wide, up-swept brow. Does anyone know if he should be on this page or if he's accounted for elsewhere? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:24, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

The alien species is already on this page: Aliens with large triangular heads. --Jörg (talk) 12:50, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
It doesn't have the same ears as those aliens, and the shape of the head doesn't look quite right. I don't think they're the same species. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 12:57, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
I am 100% sure because the alien also wears the gray costume usually worn (almost exclusively) by all members of that species. --Jörg (talk) 13:11, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
Actually, now that I'm looking at the second image, it appears you might be right. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:29, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
I looked again and added a third image. The costume is the same and the height of the character is consistent throughout the scene. It's definitely one of the triangular head aliens. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 06:58, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Shattered Mirror Alien/The Muse Edit

There is an alien man who appears in the very first few seconds of the episode Shattered Mirror that I don't think I've seen elsewhere. The back of his head is quite wide, and his head has a triangular shape when viewed from the front. He is walking with a Human Starfleet officer (who is in a gold uniform) on the first level of the Promenade. I don't know if he should go here or if his species has a name. He also appears in The Muse as a passenger arriving on a transport.TrekkieCub314 (talk) 11:32, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

A female member of this species wearing Taxco's costume appears on the promenade in DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow", while another male member of the species is seen in the bar at the Mikhal Traveler outpost in the Voyager episode VOY: "Darkling". --Jörg (talk) 13:02, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
If no one objects, I'm probably going to add this entry to the main article since it seems to have multiple appearances, after I get the image pages corrected. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 15:04, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
These aliens have been added under Wedge Eared Aliens. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:52, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Apocalypse Rising Alien Edit

This woman was at the Dabo wheel in the second scene of Apocalypse Rising. I can't tell if she's an alien or not, or whether her species has been seen before or not. She's vaguely similar to the Zakdorn but I don't think she's one of them. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 05:23, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

This has been added under Woman with Facial Flaps. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 10:46, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Trials and Tribble-ations Alien Edit

This man was in Quarks near the end of the episode. I can't tell if he's been seen or not, and he seems to have a beard. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 05:34, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Added this under Pink-skinned Bearded Alien. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 10:38, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Inferno's Light Server Edit

This man looks a lot like one of the reptilian aliens already mentioned on the page (primarily the shape of the back of the head), but the face looks different enough to suggest he may be different species. Should I add this guy to the list? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 04:50, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

I decided to add this species to the main article. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:46, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
This has been added under Rippled Head Waiter. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:39, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Inferno's Light Bar Patron Edit

I don't know if this guy has been seen anywhere else, so I'm asking here. He was in Quark's and later on the Promenade during the episode "By Inferno's Light". TrekkieCub314 (talk) 05:15, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Decided to add this alien to the main article. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:40, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
This alien has been added under Green-skinned Alien with Horizontal Eye Ridges. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:48, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Doctor Bashir, I Presume Alien Edit

Has this guy been seen before? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:24, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Since members of this species appear in at least three episodes, I decided to add them to the main article. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 09:01, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
This alien has been addec under Aliens with Pointed Heads and Yellow-Green Skin. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:46, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

A Simple Investigation Alien Edit

This alien was seen on the Promenade outside the security office, looking at a data kiosk. He looks a bit familiar, but I'm not sure if his species has been seen on this page or others like it before. He doesn't look quite like a Benzite or the blue-skinned slave from In A Mirror Darkly. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:45, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

I decided to add this alien to the main article. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 10:21, January 6, 2015 (UTC)
This has been added under Blue Skinned Alien with Elongated Head. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 14:50, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Business as Usual Alien Edit

Business As Usual Alien 1

The alien

This man was standing outside the security office when Odo tried to arrest Quark. There's not a lot of detail, but I'm hoping someone could try to identify this alien, if he is not unique. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 13:49, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Question about Starfleet Alien Edit

So I've found an unnamed alien species in Call to Arms, but he was a Starfleet officer. Should I include a full section about the species on this page or should I create a page under "Unnamed DS9 Personnel" and add a reference to this page? TrekkieCub314 (talk) 08:00, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

The latter option. Tom (talk) 11:24, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Abducting Aliens Edit

Whenever an unnamed species has a named individual, we give them a separate article titled "Individual's species". So I think we should call this race "Mitena Haro's species" and give them a separate page. Or maybe "Picard Impostor's species", since the Picard impostor was the first one shown on screen. The name "Abducting aliens" is not specific enough, since they aren't the only species in TNG to abduct someone. NetSpiker (talk) 12:48, March 11, 2015 (UTC)

Mitena Haro is probably an assumed name, which is relevant because recently another species that had several individials, but with fake names, was merged: Talk:Unnamed_non-humanoids_(24th_century)#Merge (from Talk: Unnamed imagination aliens) -- Capricorn (talk) 13:29, March 11, 2015 (UTC)

That example doesn't apply to this situation because there was a real Buck Bokai, but there is no real Mitena Haro, as far as we know. There is also no other Picard impostor. NetSpiker (talk) 14:02, March 11, 2015 (UTC)

I see no value in creating "made up species names". Tom (talk) 19:19, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

Bald alien in Apocalypse Rising 6:02-6:03 Edit

Is this bald alien in Apocalypse Rising a member of Abdon's species? Is it the same make-up as the Kobali?

Compare this guys' make-up side-by-side with a Kobali and you'll see they're not the same, however it is very close to Abdon's make-up. I think this alien is a member of Abdon's species. TrekkieCub314 (talk) 04:58, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

Here's Abdon and a Kobali for comparison: You're right. The Kobali's head has a different shape and a lot more mottling, especially in the forehead area. Also, the skin tone is different, even if the lighting is taken into account. NetSpiker (talk) 08:03, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

Aliens with large, triangular head Edit

According to the Alien Species Wiki, this species is called the Taal [1], which is claimed to be a production nickname. Can anyone confirm if this is true? --NetSpiker (talk) 09:22, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Pink Benzite-like aliens Edit

Alien pink-skinned workers

Pink-skinned aliens

Are we sure that those are Benzites in the Delta Quadrant? The coloring is entirely wrong and the mouth tendrils are missing. I think it's more likely that they recycled the makeup and changed the color to make it seem like a new race. Logan 5 03:50, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree. Aside from their being pink, their noses are not as big as other Benzites. Were they named as Benzites in "Workforce"?--31dot 17:02, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
There is no reference that these aliens are Benzites. The call sheets for "Workforce" are listing the actors as "Full Heads" regarding their makeup. Tom 17:44, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
Then I'm inclined to move them off this page, since they appear different enough, but I will wait for additional comment.--31dot 18:10, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
I'd say I agree, they're different enough to be a new species, not Benzites (just similar, but then again there are so many species similar to Humans)! JagoAndLitefoot (talk) 11:34, September 21, 2016 (UTC)
Actually, I would guess that they're probably Imhotep, a Delta Quadrant species with modified Benzite make-up. JagoAndLitefoot (talk) 11:47, September 21, 2016 (UTC)
I moved them here. They are neither, and should be treated as less. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 23:12, October 25, 2017 (UTC)
