Dr. Zora, a female Tiburonian

The Tiburonians are a humanoid species, native to the planet Tiburon. The males of the species were bald and had unusually shaped ears. (TOS: "The Way to Eden") Female Tiburonians had either caucasoid or greenish skin, long hair and enlarged eyebrows. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain", ENT: "Affliction") Some males did not have eyebrows and had a small ridgeline across their forehead. (DS9: "The Ship")


The Tiburonians were known to Humans in 2149, when they hosted an Interspecies Medical Exchange conference. (ENT: "Affliction")

Tiburonian government was comprised of a group of tribes. Sometime in Tiburon's past, Dr. Zora did gruesome experiments on the body chemistry of several tribes of Tiburonians. Her work and methods were condemned by later generations, and in the 23rd century, she was seen as one of the most evil members of the Tiburonian species. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")

The Tiburonians were members of the United Federation of Planets by the mid-23rd century. (TOS: "The Way to Eden")

It should be noted that it was not explicitly specified that Zora, seen in TOS: "The Savage Curtain" was in fact from Tiburon, merely that she performed experiments upon the natives.

The Decipher RPG book Starfleet Operations Manual used the name "Tiburonese".
